From Easter offerings to kids-eat-free discounts
We can’t quite believe we’re already marching our way through the third month of the year. With the weather warming, Easter Holidays calling and tiny tummies grumbling, we’ve lined up some of our favourite offerings happening this month. From dining deals where kids eat free, to Restaurant Week promotions, to extravagant Easter brunches, there’s something to keep every member of the clan well-fed and entertained. You can expect pop-up children’s play areas, Easter egg hunts, art-inspired activities (and more) this March!
Restaurant Week is officially back and we couldn’t be more excited. It’s the ideal excuse to book into restaurants you’ve been waiting to try. Running from Thursday, 8 March, to Sunday, 18 March, spots for favourites fill up quickly – which is why we had to spotlight Limewood. With a kids menu, top quality service, and the beach as your playground, this has always been a beloved family spot. Whether you’re planning on tucking the kids in early or bringing them along (we applaud both decisions!), the lunch and dinner options offered here over Restaurant Week wont disappoint. Check out the full menu.
Top tip: As part of Maximal Concepts, one of the biggest restaurant groups in Hong Kong, we’re glad to hear about this restaurant’s eco initiatives. The only straws you’ll find here are made from paper, potato starch, or metal, and the group is working with a number of packaging companies to provide customers with eco-friendly takeaway containers. We’ll cheers to that!

Moi Moi has just launched a new Vietnamese Semi-Buffet Dinner with a family friendly bonus. Opened by Vietnamese Australian celebrity Chef, Luke Nguyen, you can expect bright, colourful, dishes, with plenty of fresh produce. The best bit? As a special promotion, Moi Moi is inviting kids to dine completely FREE! In fact, each guest can bring up to two children to the semi-buffet and enjoy just paying for adults (valid for ages 11 or below).

Timed to align with the upcoming school holidays, Rhoda has just begun offering kids meals for $100. Children can take their pick from favourites like Tagliatelle with Parmesan, or salmon with mash and broccoli. We also love the sound of the kid’s version of the roast dinner on Sundays. To top it off, little ones under the age of 6 eat for free!
Top Tip: Looking for dining spots to spend the long weekend? Cooked over live fire, Rhoda’s signature whole Red snapper, baked in kombu, with oregano and lemon, is an ultimate Good Friday Feast ($548).

Head over to this family spot from Friday, 30 March, to Monday, 2 April, and check out the Easter Brunch. Parents can take their pick between a full carving station with roast beef and accompaniments, or the poached salmon Easter special. Meanwhile, the smaller family members can finish their meal at the cupcake counter and the Easter egg Decorating Corner. It’s $320 for adults and $220 for kids between 4 to 11 years old – and we hear there’ll be an Easter egg hunt at both the brunch and dinner settings.

Looking for a Thai take on Easter? Ayuthaiya has got you covered. Offering all the usual dishes (we love the papaya salad, prawn cakes, fish curry and morning glory), parents can stock up on their favourite flavours whilst kids enjoy the Easter treats. With a Kinder surprise giveaway and Easter egg painting sets for kids, make sure to book ahead over the Easter break to get a spot.

Al fresco dining, parking and stroller accessibility combine to make this spot a winner. On Children’s Day (Wednesday, 4 April) kids under 10 can eat for free from the kids menu – limited to one item per child and two children per adult. Commissary’s Kids Menu caters to all ages, with the choice of small or large portions. All main dishes come with a glass of cold-pressed juice for the young ones, but as a little bonus throughout March, you can upgrade to an American iced tea (popcorn & pomegranate, Rooibos & vanilla or Arnold Palmer). Plus, during the weekend brunch, there’s a Maggie & Rose corner set up to keep all tiny tots on their toes.
Top tip: The next time you’re in Pacific Place for breakfast, we recommend the pastry basket and stack of pancakes.
