child friendly restaurant BrisbaneNantucket is a child friendly restaurant that sits on the outside of the newly refurbished Indooroopilly Shoppingtown on the west side of Brisbane.

With a name like Nantucket you can probably guess it takes it’s inspiration from Cape Cod, and you’ll find traditional USA fare like crab cakes and mac n cheese. The restaurant itself is open, bright and welcoming, and it falls into the category of fine dining. Child friendly fine dining? I hear you say. It can be done.

Nantucket is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It’s white walls with splashes of greenery make it welcoming and exude a relaxed fine dining atmosphere. Despite the fine dining tag, it welcomes families, and you’ll find a menu for the kids on a “View Master”. So the kids can look at the pictures and choose their meal. Ingenious. ¬†You might just find the kids take a bit longer to choose their meal than normal!

So don’t be afraid to take the kids out for a nice meal. While it’s not a restaurant where the kids can play, if they’re happy to sit and colour, Nantucket is a great option.
