2. Monolos

The owners of Monolos were frustrated at the lack of eateries which truly catered to children and parents, so they created this unique  “restaurant and playhouse “ which serves crowd-pleasing American food such as burgers, steaks and milkshakes, alongside a large soft play area.

You can relax knowing that children of all ages will be entertained, whilst you enjoy your food and let them come and go as they please- they will return to the table to eat when they have tired themselves out! This place has to be on our list of child friendly restaurants in Manchester.
