7. Peperoni Pizzeria at Greenwood Avenue (Bukit Timah)
Tried once and I’m hooked – these five words aptly describe my sentiments about this place that serves awesome pasta and wood fired pizzas. Aside from serving great food, there are also coloring sheets and crayons on the tables to keep children occupied. The restaurant interior is akin to a children Art Museum, with the walls covered in children’s paintings/doodles right up to the ceiling. The staff here is really helpful and nice too, and they are accustomed to helping families with children settle down comfortably.

9. Seb’s Bistro and The Playhouse
An option for those staying in the West (nope, not Westgate or JEM). Seb’s Bistro (previously La Viva) at Rochester Park offers classy alfresco dining in a relaxed environment. The ambience is great and the food is delicious. Next to the restaurant is the famous Playhouse, housed in a separate colonial bungalow. The Playhouse interior was refurbished recently and it just re-opened three weeks ago. The bungalow houses two floors of play area that are filled with a multitude of toys, and the best thing of all is that there are child minders looking after your kids here! Therefore, adults can enjoy their dinner and drinks in peace knowing that their kids are playing under the watchful eye of the Playhouse staff. There is also an outdoor playground just outside the bungalow.
