Kids – they are the future.
They can also make dining out a little more stressful, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible.
In Perth, we’ve got options aplenty for kid friendly restaurants, whether its playgrounds to keep them occupied or killer meal deals to help the back pocket.
Here’s some of the best options around Perth take the tiny ones for a night out, and get you out of the kitchen.
