12 restaurants in Valencia with children’s play areas
Going to a restaurant as a family, we’ve all been there, I’m sure. Picture this: you finished your starters, you are still waiting for the main course and your little ones are getting itchy, dying to get off their seat. They may or may not have finished eating, but it is clear that they are not in the mood for sitting any longer at that table. Instead of stressful situations, meltdowns and a sharp exit before dessert, why not opt for a place where kids can have a nice time too? Parents can have a conversation with complete sentences, enjoy their meals while the children can safely go off and play, sometimes even being looked after by dedicated staff. Sounds good?
