Best Restaurants for Kids & Families
When you visit a restaurant with your kids, the last thing that you want to see is other diners raising their eye brows or calling the waiters and whispering something into their ears with a tone of annoyance. It's true that many diners do not like kids moving around on the floor or making noises or gestures.
And it's also true that the kids do not like such diners either. They want to be free, engaged in some activities and most importantly like to eat the food they like while you too as parents have choices to order your kind of food. so the restaurant and the staffs have a huge roll to play in such situations and must make it loud and clear in their themes and decor that they love kids and families.
While all restaurants in the island are not geared to handle children of all ages along with families, some restaurants in Bermuda do exceptionally well in this. And the popular magazine of the island The Bermudian gives annual awards to those who are the best amongst family and kid friendly restaurants.
Here are some of the best restaurants in Bermuda for families and kids:

The restaurant is located on Washington Street in Hamilton City. They have won several awards from The Bermudian magazine for being the best family and kids friendly restaurant in the island. They serve great Italian food. Large varieties of pizzas are made in wood burning brick ovens. But why do the kids love this restaurant?
First, it's colorfully and tastefully decorated. They have a separate kids menu having items like spaghetti with meatballs and trattoria sauce, pepperoni pizza, cheese and tomato pizza, home made chcicken tenders, cheese burgers, grilled cheese, grilled chicken, sweet potato fries, steamed vegetables and more which kids love.
The backside of the menu card asks the kids to draw pictures. They provide the color pens and encourage the kids to paint. And most kids get busy immediately. La Trattoria serves lunch and dinner daily.

This is another favorite place for families and children. The pub and restaurant is located in the old Cooperage building of Royal Naval Dockyard. When you enter the main dining room (Cooper's Room), the huge hall, high ceiling, many colorful flags fluttering around, the large candle holder hanging from the ceiling and the massive stone made fireplace make the children feel as if they are inside a castle.
The children also enjoy traditional British pub fares such as bangers and mash, fish and chips etc, and also burgers and other dishes. Another attraction for the children here is the adjoining game room which has several play stations, pool table etc. The pub also has its own local brewery, the only one making Bermuda brewed beer. So that's an opportunity for the parents to enjoy some great beer of original Bermuda flavor.
