It’s hip, it’s happening and it is filled with the SO much to do at every corner of every street. It is none other than Port Adelaide.
In no exaggeration; in what suburb can you climb a light house, explore three museums, find treasure at the markets, see dolphins, play on 122 playgrounds (yup that is right over 122 playgrounds in Port Adelaide Enfield Council area) see street art and walk by the docks.
The British Port Adelaide is your perfect pit stop to enjoy a great meal before or after your day of exploring Port Adelaide.
What we loved for Kids
- Kids Eat Free Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday’s both for lunch and dinner when a main meal is purchased
- At other times the kids menu is $9.90! Including meal, drink and ice cream. Choose from chicken nuggets, crumbed whiting, cheese and bacon pizza pocket, cheese burger or for a couple of dollars extra they can even have a steak.
- Kids corner (ideally for ages 4 and under) with small kitchen play, table games and trains
- No squishy squashy seating… yahh for easy pram parking and lots of areas to sit and chat if the meal time is becoming too boring for the little ones
- Underground Tunnel (adults term “posh cellar with art displays”) a great little discovery for the kids to go underground and have a poke around (if there are no private tastings on)
- Activity packs for kids. I did not even have to bat an eye lid before the activity packs were presented to our table.. phew, because this unorganised mother forgot any small boredom buster activities.
- Change table facilities in accessible toilet and all round clean bathrooms!
- No pokies ! Personally, the noise can be distracting and the kids (well mine) always want to sit and play.
- Decent size servings. Nothing worse than grumbly stomachs on small servings .. definitely very generous
- Great selection for the tweens on the menu as well from burgers, fish & chips, bangers & mash
- If the kids are being irritable – so and take them to visit Fred the Parrot next door!
What we loved as the Adults..
