Eating out with a toddler?

  • Over the years we have eaten in most of the restaurants in the area but when we come out next month we will have our 20 month old grandaughter with us and I guess this means that we will have different priorities when choosing where to dine. We particularly enjoy El Pescador and Mirandas in LG and Toni's in Alcala but I am not sure of their suitability for (or acceptance of) a messy toddler. We would appreciate the advice of anyone with experience of eating out with a nipper. We really need places which provide highchairs and won't faint if the odd morsel finds it's way on to the floor!

  • I have seen high chairs in mirandas also they have them in the sports bar
    by the bus stop and the chinese both top and bottom. la baghittas if you
    like basic pizza and salad worth a visit the spanish always make a fuss of
    toddlers anyway so a bit of food on the floor would not be a problem anyway
    I hope this is a help to you.
     
      even mirandas give bibs to adults.
    EVERYDAY WHEN I WAKE UP, I THANK THE LORD I'M WELSH

  • LG is not the most kid friendly resort. That is not a criticism just an observation as there's plenty of other destinations that do make it easier for families.

    If she is walking/toddling then perhaps Maxims or others near the square so she can get about whilst you watch her or maybe even venture to the new park adjacent.

  • Ive been taking my kids with us to Los Gigs before theywere even 1 year old and all the places we eat were fine with kids.  If they are not sleeping in the buggy then most places have high chairs.  Bella's, mirandas, chinees's, Indian, Jessies on the beach, harbor lites, little Italy, heaps of others and even Sinatra's a few years back when it was excellent.  I know taking the kids out to eat can sometimes be a sweat alot of them provided colouring books too.  Taking the little boys back again this year age 4 and 8 will be going to all the usual places and new ones as Ive never been made feel unwelcome.  Happy Hols.

  • blimey there's some spikey people on here.

    when did i mention unwelcome ? even put a disclaimer in about not a criticism just an observation as that is not what LG is really aimed at

    if you go to other resorts around Europe then the food & drink establishments are tailored to families with kids under 12 who require amusement. In Menorca for example the resort of Cala n Forcat is a bit cheesy but has good facilities and another more upmarket resort called Son Bou is also good.

    Think some posters on here just can't wait to get on their high horses for little or no reason.
