We enjoyed all our meals at this awesome kiddies favorite restaurant despite the rainy weather which meant less fun outdoor activities. I was surprised at the amount of space they have inside which practically accommodated all their guests, both young and old. Food was fresh and tasty as usual. Prices are well above average for a kids joint so prepare... More

Papachinos claims to be Italian and there is a nice attempt but the food is very good but not very Italian. In spite of that, this is one of the best places to eat a meal with family, friends or just the two of you. The menu has something for everyone from pizza to the best filet steak you can... More

We had a farewell breakfast for some family from Australia. Not once were we left without food or drinks an the kids had a blast in the play area. The staff and management were very polite and helpful. We were call on by management not once, but twice during our breakfast. We also had one of the best waiters serving... More

Why not get the kids out of the house and have a cold drink at Papachinos this weekend. They have a variety of food and drinks at reasonable prices and the small ones have their little playground heaven here in Roodepoort. Well worth a visit.

Perfect restaurant if you need a break and the kids comes along. A lot of entertainment for the kids, while the adults enjoy superb cuisine. We went for lunch there today with family with kids and had an awesome time. Service also great.

Well, all I can say is that thank goodness for the small miracle of Papachinos this place has saved one mommies sanity on more than one occasion. The waiters are amazing and very helpful and so are the child minders. The play area is secure and even though it's big you can keep an eye on your child/children. They have... More

This is a great restaurant if you want good food and a place that can keep young kids happily occupied. Kids can play in the outdoor playground or enjoy the indoor games and rides and the ultimate fun is getting to prep their own pizza. As always, the staff are what makes or breaks a restaurant and Papachinos has outstanding... More

This restaurant is probably the most child friendly a restaurant can be. Although I spend a lot of money on food my child never saw (for she never came back to the table after starting to play), it was worth it having a lovely meal. And with all the children around it was surprisingly quiet. The food is great and... More

What a super child friendly spot, where parents get to eat while helpful nannies supervise & play with the kids. Huge menu choice, from sushi to steak. Generous portions, delicious gluten free pizza and creative pizza range.
