Located in the lush greenery of Champions Golf Course, lies a spacious family-style bistro restaurant called Picotin Express. The restaurant is adjacent to many kid-friendly activities such as 9-Hole Golf Course and 36-Hole Outdoor Mini Golf for the little ones. If you’re considering throwing a birthday party for the kids, Picotin Express is the perfect location as the team is highly experienced for holding kids events. They also have dancing lights! If you pop by at night, they might just blast ABBA to get you groovin’ and be a dancing queen.

For regular dining, the little ones can choose from small pizzas, pastas or fish fingers and chips. Each item includes a glass of juice or soft drink and a scoop of ice cream or small chocolate mousse. The big ones (adults!) aren’t neglected, you’ll have an array of sublime options from Fjord Salmon, Crispy Duck Leg Confit and Honey Glazed Pork Ribs, that’ll have you wiping your plates clean. Picotin Express also has another outlet at East Coast.

Located at Goodman Arts Centre in Mountbatten, the 120-seater cafe strives to be an oasis from our daily busy lives. You can unwind by ordering the all-day breakfast sets and have the kids jump to their hearts’ content at the bouncy castle at the open field, adjacent to the café. The café dishes out favourites such as Eggs Benedict and our all-time favourite munchies, Truffle Fries! With delicious food available and a huge space, Café Melba is your go-to café for the little ones to run and be free! They have a second outlet at Mediapolis which is kid-friendly too!

Do note that the bouncy castle is only available from 3pm – 8pm on weekdays and 9am – 8pm on weekends (subjected to weather conditions). Unfortunately, due to the current COVID-19 situation, the bouncy castle is closed until further notice.

Rounding up the list, we have a renowned restaurant, Jamie’s Italian. Hailing from England, Jamie’s Italian is the brainchild of Jamie Oliver, a British chef who gained worldwide popularity for his television shows such as The Naked Chef and Oliver’s Food Revolution. Conveniently located in the heart of Orchard, Jamie’s Italian has an outlet in Forum Orchard which is tastefully designed with Italian trattoria decorations.

Take a bite of their famous pasta dishes such as a Prawn Linguine, Truffle Ravioli and Jamie’s Octopus Raviolio – where you’ll be transported to Italy at the first bite. The kids also get a slice of heaven by the kids’ menu, which features dishes such as Mini Spaghetti & Meatballs, Secret Seven Gnocchi and Happy Chicken Lollipops. Wrap things up with a Raspberry Ripple Pavlova and the sinful Molten Chocolate Praline Pudding – get more than one to avoid fights between the kids (or adults!).
