Food plays a crucial role in how families remember their holiday. But the meals themselves aren’t the only thing that plays into it. The entire experience of eating in a new location is equally as important. Singapore is one of the most contrasting cities in the world; from historical and natural sites to massive infrastructure and modern architecture, all concentrated in the best way possible on a tiny island. Being such a multicultural location in South East Asia makes it easy for Singapore to sweep you right off your feet with its immense variety in finger-licking good dishes. Therefore, in order to help you remember your holiday in the Little Red Dot through food, we thought we’d provide you with a list of the best kid friendly restaurants in Singapore. Here they are!
1.Camp Kilo Charcoal Club
The Kilo Collective has got it right, yet again. Every Sunday, Camp Kilo Charcoal Club brings families together by creating the most ingenious BBQ meals in Singapore. Set on their outdoor area close to the Kallang riverside, you can expect to sit back and relax. Enjoy their incredible items while listening to only the best live music in the background. Live music isn’t the only form of entertainment that visits – there are also artists’ markets with locally made crafts, fashion and artisanal pieces you can’t leave Singapore without.
Their bi-weekly Sunday Camp Kiddo is perfect for the kids. They have a wide range of original ideas and activities for children. For example, craft-making, storytelling forts, food sensory games and going on exciting adventures on the river! Parents are also welcome to join. For these reasons and many more we wish you discover, the Camp Kilo Charcoal Club earns its place as number one in the top ten child friendly restaurants in Singapore.

2. Ola Beach Club
Ola Beach Club is located in one of Singapore’s best areas for families, Sentosa. This beach club is perfect to spend the entire day in because besides being an excellent restaurant, it is indeed a beach club. It’s got plenty of fun activities and games for the kids, including inflatables, kayaking, paddle boarding and other more exciting water sports like the donut, and even jetpacks. The beach, of course, is right in front of the club which you can admire from the sunbeds. However, there is also a pool if you prefer to take a dip in freshwater, or keep a closer eye on the kids.
The theme of the restaurant is Hawaiian, and its menu is full of quirky-named dishes, and a great tiki bar where parents can enjoy all kinds of cocktails. Some of the kid friendly meals you can expect to see at Ola Beach Club are generally well-liked pizzas, pasta, hamburgers and seafood.

3. Tiong Bahru Bakery Safari
The Tiong Bahru Bakery Safari is a wonderful concept for a restaurant. The name speaks for itself. It’s a safari-themed restaurant that truly makes you feel like you’re truly immersed in an adventure in the middle of the jungle. Their menu mirrors their philosophy well – supportive of ethically sourced and health-conscious nutrition.
Besides its amazing food, TBB has incredible outdoor facilities that will keep your kids busy and entertained. They have a great ‘edible garden’ from which many of their veggies and spices come from, as well as bunnies and chickens children love saying hello to. They open at 8:00 am, which is perfect for early risers and families with younger children.
We strongly recommend you try some of their smoothies – they have what seem to be interminable combinations of fruit that compliment each other in the best way possible.

4. Slappy Cakes
Slappy Cakes is probably one of the most kid friendly restaurants in Singapore. Not only is it delicious, but it’s a fun way to encourage your children to unleash their creativity by creating their own pancakes. We find it a particularly good spot to come to for breakfast.
In the middle of your table, you’ll find a hot pan, five different batters, and all kinds of fixings toppings. Then you’re good to go! Feel free to create edible drawings, letters or any other designs that you can think of. They’re very well equipped with ingredients that you wouldn’t even expect; such as blue cheese, dried pineapple, shredded coconut, and even healthier options like whole-grain batter.
If you prefer to have your breakfast done for you, you can of course order something from their well-rounded menu. There are many great options besides pancakes as well, like yogurt and fruit bowls.

Tue - Fri 10:00 AM - 9:30 PM
This is quite an unexpected choice. You wouldn’t expect it to be one of the best kid friendly restaurants in Singapore at first glance. This place is a favourite among the locals, especially young professionals, and artists. They constantly have live music bands scheduled for social nights, gourmet food, and an incredible variety of drinks at the bar. Pretty much, it looks like the ideal location for parents to come on a date night without the kids.
But Timbre makes sure to expand its fun and lighthearted brand to every member of the family, making it one of the best child friendly restaurants in Singapore. Timbre@Switch opens its doors from 11 am with an easy to love gourmet menu for lunchtime. From around 7:00 pm, the restaurant hosts incredible gigs featuring Singapore’s talented upcoming artists. It’s a perfect setting for families with slightly older children eager to have a taste for nightlife while keeping it PG.

6. Bayswater Kitchen
Located in Keppel Island, the Bayswater Kitchen is one of the most perfect, intimate family friendly restaurants in Singapore. This cozy, charming place finds itself at the harbour, where you’ll be able to admire the boats and yachts that sail by.
Their signature dishes are, of course, seafood. Their menu is simple and down to earth; just what you need for a meal as a family. Their backroom is equipped with some great games and entertainment for kids like a football and ping pong table. It’s truly somewhere you could go for a date night, without minding the kids being there at all.
This restaurant is vegetarian-friendly, and also offers non-seafood options. Theis position within the most kid friendly restaurants in Singapore is due to their constant effort and drive to keep all their consumers happy!

7. Señor Taco Chijmes
When has Mexican cuisine ever failed you? Señor Taco is not one of the greatest kid friendly restaurants in Singapore for its incredible food. The thought that’s been given to the design and atmosphere of the restaurant (as well as the food) is also something that will take your experience to a whole other level.
They keep Mexican street culture very close in mind. The walls are decorated with neon signs, and the tacos are authentic as they can be. In this restaurant, you can discover more of the magical Mexican gastronomy by trying out new dishes you normally wouldn’t in other stereotypical Mexican restaurants.
The kids can enjoy themselves by engaging in the planned activities for them every Sunday at brunch. Their brunch menu is quite new actually but is a huge success among children. Make sure to come here for birthdays! They have piñatas available.

8. Carrotsticks and Cravings
For health-focused families, Carrotsticks and Cravings will definitely make an impression as one of the most well-thought-out family friendly restaurants in Singapore. Each dish is packed with a great deal of highly green and nutritious ingredients. We strongly recommend you to check out this restaurant for breakfast or brunch! They have a wide variety of smoothies and freshly-squeezed juices.
Their kids’ menu is very successful. Of course, you can expect it to be very healthy and creatively put together with the help of vegan ingredients like hummus. Don’t worry, there are options for all tastes as well, like ham and cheese toasties and smashed avocado toast. All kids’ meals are accompanied by fruit and smoothies, so your child will be ready and full of energy for a day of activities. They also have a great playground with a trampoline and slide for kids to play in.

9. The Halia
The Botanical Gardens are a breathtaking location to visit on this island alone. But the opportunity to eat among this incredible nature and unique plant species is even better.
Besides being one of the best family friendly restaurants in Singapore, The Halia is perfect when parents are looking for a grown-up treat. Its menu is sophisticated using only the best ingredients to come up with delicious dishes. In the meantime, the kids’ menu has items that are a lot more attuned to what children like the most – while remaining just a hint luxurious. There are activity packs and books to keep the kids busy at the table too. Apart from the delicious traditional Singapore meals you can have, there are European and Asian options available.

10. Open Farm Community
The island’s Open Farm Community is not only one of the top ten family friendly restaurants in Singapore, but it’s also what people like to think of as a fun learning hub. It provides a space for children to connect with nature and gardening. With the restaurant’s vegetables growing just in their garden, children can learn all about their farm-to-table philosophy and why it’s so important to do it. Their menu is healthy and mirrors their goal of wanting to promote a healthy and animal-loving lifestyle.
Their playground has a great sandbox and originally-shaped playground…in the form of a cow. There’s also lawn bowling, ping pong tables, and a small farm.

Bonus! – Old Airport Road Food Court
How about a bonus suggestion for another child friendly restaurant in Singapore? The Old Airport Road Food Court is one of the most popular food courts in the islands. There is a wide range of numerous food stalls to choose from, mainly specializing in Asian and Singaporean cuisine. We think this type of place is very convenient and practical in pleasing every member of the family. Everyone will be able to select different places from where to eat but will manage to eat it all together in one place.
