It’s no secret that family-friendly dining is a given in Hong Kong. Many restaurants feature special kids’ menus, or will serve dishes in smaller portions on request. And children are welcome just about anywhere, as long as they are reasonably behaved.
Whether it’s a kid’s menu, a play area, a highchair… Whatever works best for you, we’ve got you covered!
Located inside the Hullett House, Stables Grill offers a hushed and elegant surrounding with a grassy patch for kids to go wild. The restaurant is an ideal place to bring the whole crew on weekdays, and there’s also a popular brunch on weekends at The Parlour next door. After your family meal, head to the Hong Kong Space Museum, or for a laissez-faire stroll along the harbour to take in the pretty views.
