Family friendly places to eat.

Could someone suggest some family friendly and perhaps lower cost places to eat in and around Perth?

Where will you be staying? Picnics are a great way of keeping costs down. Kings Park has great playgrounds and the river foreshore is also terrific for kids- eg Matilda Bay and Peppermint Grove. Buy food at supermarkets as quality is usually very good. Not sure when you are coming but even in winter we can get pleasant days for picnics.

Other than that I would suggest Asian style in Northbridge and Fremantle. Places like the Markets in Freo have wide choices. Some pubs are family friendly and during the weekdays specials are reasonable. Often see kids at Clancys in Fremantle which offers delicious seafood. Most cafes are family friendly and usually lunch meals are a cheaper option than dinner. A favourite of our family in Freo is Ootong and Lincoln in South Terrace. You would need to take the free blue CAT from central Freo as a bit of a walk from the main strip.

Leave it to others for suggestions north of the river.

We will be staying with our daughter in Subiaco. She has recently moved there and because Perth seems to be pricey, they do not eat out much with the whole family. We wanted to be able to treat the children while we visit them.

We will be in Perth during the last of April and first part of May. Sounds as though that is perfect picnic weather. We are also hoping for something a little more restaurant like as well.

We don't eat out much either as expensive! If you go ' down south' the wineries will be a treat.

Eg Cullens Winery

In Fremantle think it would be fun for the whole family at Little Creatures. At the Fremantle Art centre is the lovely Canvas cafe which is a great spot and interesting food of Middle Eastern style. Lunch not dinner and you can book which you need to on weekends.

A more special place is this restaurant/bistro in Mosman Park.

Been once and loved it and still has great reviews- must go again! Open early so think well behaved kids would find it a special place.

Perth generally has more interesting eating places than in previous years and I am sure that others will post their favourites.

think they may have wound up due to colder weather, but the bathers beach sunset markets have been really lovely - you could catch the train to Fremantle from Subiaco then walk down. Lots of different food stalls all at great prices, with live music and grass to sit on while you eat. Our kids (8 & 9) love it

There are a few food courts around the suburbs ... and in the city. A barbecue at Kings Park, or along the river would be ideal ... hopefully the weather is kind during your stay.

You will always find a bargain or two if you know where to look.

Hillarys Boat Harbour has some good food spots, as well as AQWA - an aquarium at the end of the harbour.

Take a boat ride from Barrack Street Jetty to Fremantle (your daughter could pick you up at the E Shed in Fremantle) ... the morning cruise shows you some sights as well as some mansions on the river ... you get commentary and morning tea along the way.

It is costly to eat out here ... a lot more expensive than the US, but our wages are a lot higher as we don't have the tipping like you do ... but I am sure you will enjoy it.

A day trip out to Whiteman Park and Caversham Wildlife Park is a full day for you ... have a barbecue there while you feed the kangaroos and see the koalas.

It can be as cheap as you want it to be if you take your own lunch, like meat and salads or sandwiches.

Mandurah can be a day trip on the train ... and eat at the estuary .. taking your own or buying something from the many cafes there. There is also dolphin cruises, but not sure if they will be running when you are there.

I would suggest your daughter go to the Visitor Centre in the city on the corner of William and Hay Street and get some information on day trips, where you can have cheap days out, information on the train travel, ie day trip fees, and don't forget we have wonderful sunsets... so you could have fish and chips on Cottesloe or Scarborough Beach.

Thank you. The little girls lived in the UK for a year and are VERY well mannered so we are not worried about that but some places just are not happy to have children as guests.

There are lots of nice places to eat in Subiaco. My kids always love going to Grill'd burgers or Jus Burgers, both very close to the Subiaco Station, the burgers are really nice and freshly cooked! There are a lot of restaurants along Rokeby Road in Subiaco, so I'm sure there would be many choices nearby - some of them pricey!!

Urbanspoon is a great tool for finding places to eat in Perth - urbanspoon.com/c/338/Perth-restaurants.html.

You can filter by suburb, price, cuisine and features (such as 'Kid Friendly') and read reviews from other patrons. I've lived in Perth all my life and still use this website/app religiously to make sure we always have a great meal!
