Break up the weekly routine with a family night out, that doesn’t even have to break the bank – just head to one of these Gold Coast restaurants where kids eat free.

Mermaid Beach SLSC

Head to the Mermaid Beach Supporters Club on a Monday night and the little nippers will eat absolutely free! Their extensive kids’ menu features favourites, plus the surf club has a fun kids room to keep them busy after dinner. The best part? Mermaid SLSC’s Kids Eat Free night coincides with Barra Monday, so mum and dad are sorted, too!


Club Burleigh

At this beloved Burleigh establishment, kids eat free every Tuesday AND Friday from 5.30pm until 8.30pm. All you need to do to be eligible for the offer is purchase an adult meal from the Mains, Chargrill, Burgers, Pizza or Salad sections of the menu.


The Park

From Sunday to Friday from 5pm, kids eat free at The Park Coomera. It’s the perfect addition to an already awesome destination for family fun – they’ve got bowling, mini golf, a pizzeria and a bar. The free kids’ meal is for children under 12, and grants you a free meal per purchase of a standard pizza or salad for an adult.


Mermaid Beach Tavern

Mermaid Beach Tavern is a relatively new local bar and bistro for delicious meals, ice-cold drinks and live sporting entertainment, and they’re even open late. The best part is, their kids meals include a free Calippo or ice-cream and kids activity pack.


Crafty’s at Harbour Town

Kids don’t just eat free on Mondays at Crafty’s – they play free, too! They’ll score one free meal and two free iPlay tokens with every adult meal purchased from 12pm. It’s a great way to kick off a week – indulge in some delicious food, great fun and games and maybe even some sport, if it’s on. It’s all super affordable, too!


Harrigan’s Calypso Bay

This Jacob’s Well favourite lets kids eat free on Tuesdays from 5pm until 9pm – all you need to do is order a main meal and you’ll receive one free kids’ meal in return. You’ll love enjoying a chef-prepared family meal by the bay, letting the kids run rampant on the grass while you soak up the idyllic water views. Bliss.


Dog and Parrot Tavern

This Robina restaurant isn’t just easy on the budget, with kids eating free every Sunday night from 5.30pm – they also have an awesome outdoor playground AND an indoor playroom, complete with Playstations! Kids will love options like chicken nuggets, fish and chips, cheese burgers, spaghetti bolognese and ham and pineapple pizza.


Saltwater Creek Hotel

At Helensvale’s Saltwater Creek Hotel, kids eat free every single Monday night from 5.30pm – they just need to be under 12 years old and be with a paying adult. Easy. They’ll love classic menu items like battered fish and chips, chicken nuggets and spag bol’.


Hog’s Breath Cafe

Every Monday and Tuesday, you can score a free kids’ meal with every adult main meal (valued over $20) at Hog’s Breath Cafe. Your little ones will love the kids’ menu – everything from chicken nuggets to steak to pasta – as well as the complimentary drink and scoop of ice cream.
