Eating with your children in a restaurant doesn’t have to be a pain, just take them to one of these awesome kid-friendly restaurants. From off-the-beaten-path-strictly local options to tourist-friendly neighbourhoods that aren’t too pricey, you’ll find everything to please even the pickiest eaters. Most restaurants are "family certified" establishments, a project set up by parents from the central Québec City districts looking for accessible, affordable family-friendly options.

1 Spag & tini Le Resto!

Spag & tini Italian restaurant in the heart of the Petit-Champlain makes children feel like royalty. Parents have access to unbreakable dishes, allergy-free options and extra room for strollers.

2 Nina Pizza Napolitaine

Children love eating with their hands and Nina Pizza Napolitaine knows it. They’ve created two kid-friendly pizzas that are finger licking good, Mme Charlotte and Monsieur Jules! Sit at the front of the restaurant near the wood-burning oven where Nina’s open kitchen will let you catch sight of the pazzaïolos in action.

9 La Mama Grilled Cheese

My mom made the best grilled cheese sandwiches, especially during winter after a day of playing outside in the snow.

Kids will also love the bright and friendly 1950s-style atmosphere.

Head downstairs, and let your children decorate their sundaes from huge candy-filled tubes. Lactose-free options available.
