Ilan and I recently spent a Sunday afternoon at John Dory’s in Canal Walk with a bunch of lovely bloggers and their little ones. It was my first time at John Dory’s largely because I’m a vegetarian and assumed that there wouldn’t be anything on the menu for me (I was wrong!). I also wouldn’t ordinarily choose a restaurant in a mall as my first choice for a family treat, but I was pleasantly surprised. Here why I’d take my family back to John Dory’s:
-Although John Dory’s Canal Walk is situated above the busy food court it has plenty of glass windows letting the outdoor sunshine stream on in and the seating is spacious and less chaotic than other family-friendly restaurants that we’ve visited in the past.
-The kids loved the fantastic indoor play area and it took some convincing to get them to come and sit down to eat their lunch. The kids in the play area were supervised and there was free facepainting the day that we were there too. Win! This meant that us moms got to enjoy a glass of bubbly in peace.
-KIDS EAT FREE ON SUNDAYS – On Sundays kids under 12 eat free: for every adult that is dining off of the main menu, a child (under 12) eats free off kids menu. See the full kids menu here: https://www.johndorys.co.za/Menu/kids
.-The sushi is pretty damn tasty and there are plenty veg sushi options if you’re not a fan of raw fish. You can take advantage of half price sushi on Wednesdays and half price sushi platters on Sundays.
