GiraffeIf you happen to be with the kids on the South Bank this summer this is a great little eatery in which to recharge their batteries. Located by the Royal Festival Hall, the restaurant is incredibly spacious and the whole place beams with warmth, colour and cheerfulness. They extend a gracious welcome to youngsters so this small chain is very popular among folk in search of child-friendly establishments. Flexible and generous opening hours mean busy parents can drop in for coffee, brunch or cocktails as well as meals. They've put together a special menu just for kids. Your ravenous tots can choose from fried or scrambled eggs, beans, veggie or pork sausages, chicken and fries or mash. They even throw in a juice and some yummy ice cream and only charge you £5.25 for the whole meal. It's very refreshing. If that doesn't take their fancy the restaurant has a mouth-watering selection of starters that make perfect meals for youngsters. The spicy chicken wings and the vegetarian mezze starter are particularly good options. However, the white chocolate and crushed Toblerone cheesecake is the real winner. The delicious dessert is made especially to suit the sensitive tastebuds of tots and teens. Yum.
