Good places to eat for kids...

After many visits as a couple, my husband and I are planning to visit London for the first time with our almost 3 year old son. Needless to say, our dining experiences will be very different this time! Are there any good places for kids to eat? I'm thinking along the lines of rainforest cafe...

Also, how Christmassy is it in late October? I don't think the lights are switched on til November are they?

Obviously there are all the usual chains like Pizza Express and Carluccios.

On a more individual level, many ethnic places love children - Middle Eastern places, Greek places, for instance. One of those old fashioned Italian trattorias would work.

He might like one of those Chinese places where they push the food round on trolleys and you take your pick as they pass.

the rainforest cafe is certainly an experience. My Old Dutch attracts mixed reviews tripadvisor.co.uk/Restaurant_Review-g186338-… but again is a different place to eat

Youu dining can still be what you want - our child (admittedly older than 3 when we went) would recommend the Athenaeum for example www.athenaeumhotel.com/… Unfortunately our favourite Italian seemed to have closed on our last visit but I agree that ethnic restaurants often spoil children.

Two family friendly chains which actually do reasonable food are Giraffe and Leon.
