Child Friendly Restaurant

Finding a child friendly restaurant is now so easy for parents torn between their love for dining out and their loyalty to their children. The Riviera on Vaal Hotel & Country Club welcomes children at its two dining outlets. Mom and dad can enjoy a decent meal in a spectacular atmosphere while the kids are equally entertained. Neither is subjected to drive-thru meals nor the guilt of feeling like you’re spoiling the dining experience of patrons without kids.

Matthews Restaurant and Matthews Terrace Cafe have taken the best of eating out and combined it with kids’ entertainment to bring you great experiences. Each child friendly restaurant has its own way that it appeals to all families. Here you can all enjoy delicious meals that are prepared with all your senses in mind. Treats resemble rustic dining with a country twist. It entertains with a kiddies corner filled with all the antics that entertain kids: face painting, colouring-in, jumping castles and outdoor jungle gym. A kiddies menu with dishes that interest your kids’ appetite as well as a nutritional value that satisfies you. Murphy, the hotel mascot, makes an appearance and proposes lots of family fun activities. The Murphy Clubhouse is an entertainment powerhouse appreciated by kids and teens.

Matthews Terrace Cafe offers alfresco dining on the Hotel’s terrace garden overlooking the Vaal River. Its open spaces allow kids the freedom to be themselves under your guidance. Relish a menu that showcases light meals, fruit cocktails and tempting desserts. The setting is authentic and cosy, welcoming wonderful family dining.


Bring your kids to any child friendly restaurant at the Riviera on Vaal Hotel & Country Club; you will be welcomed with open arms.
