Papachinos serves delicious food and is a great spot for chilling with family both young and old. From breakfast through to dinner, their menu has tasty food. The activities available for the children keep them entertained for hours.

Good welcome. Mains of calamari, kingklip and burger were well received and declared delicious. Two salads failed to deliver on expectations from menu description. Chopped iceberg certainly does not constitute “mixed leafy greens ”. There were not enough waiters on the floor so, whilst Louis...was pleasant and efficient, his attention was limited. No management appeared to be checking a busy floor!!More

From our arrival all the staff were very friendly and courteous. The décor and layout has been well thought through, and attributes to a great vibe. The kids also love the play area. We all had pizza and thoroughly enjoyed it. While it lasts be...sure to enjoy the Monday half price pizza and pasta special, great deal. We had a great time and will definitely be visiting again.More

We had 9 travelers who ate at this Papachino's. The service was great, the food wast wonderful and the price was much less than we expected. What a delightful meal we had just before most of our team headed back to the USA. I suggest...the Filet steak any way that the offer it, and there are many options. You will not be disappointed. In fact, we have visited other locations and have never been disappointed by anything we have ordered. Wonderful place for families.More

Amazing place to experience this day with fellow S Africans and the staff followed by an excellent lunch while the little ones played happily. Attentive service, and terrific atmosphere too. A memorable occasion.

Something for everyone, an extensive menu from steak to sushi and not forgetting the vegans. Pizzas only start at 10am so keep in mind if planning a brunch. Staff were incredible and clearly well versed in dealing with small children as so patient and gentle....I loved that eating utensils have been well thought out for little people. Washrooms are super spacious and cater to all ages/people with special needs. The shop itself is beautifully decorated, a real treat that is suitable for any family. You can’t go wrong!More

This place has really impressed me. Where familia actually means something. I have yet to see a restaurant where the kids play area is larger then the restaurant floor. But it was indeed so. Respect to the owners for creating such a great atmosphere for...families. Netted cricket pitch, putt putt, basketball field, multiple climbing apparatus and a scooter track. Let’s not forget the bambino kitchen and the fact that they have a water station right by the kids area so the kids can help themselves to water as they play. I am so impressed. As a mom and someone who spend so much time in restaurants. The owner have my admiration and respect. Thank you for making such a great space for families!More

We ordered pizza and pasta with drinks. Food arrived cold which was disappointing seeing it was a winter evening and we were looking for something hot. Service was slow and unattentive. We asked for an extra plate to share but it didn’t arrive. Waiters serving...other tables won’t even look our way and would disappear quickly. They get 4 stars only because of the flavor of food. We were only a party of 2 and they couldn’t manage, I don’t want to take a big group there and find out.More

My wife and I occasionally stop here for brunch when passing by the area. The food is consistently good with man sized portions. The burgers are huge and really juicy and tasty. The range of breakfasts on offer are of good quality also. There is...also a huge area at the back to keep all the kids happy. Can't be faulted.More
