Soul Bistro is an adult dining experience that has enough space (when dining outside) and a menu that easily adapts to dining with children.  We have been there for dinner previously and the food and service was impeccable.  BYO any alcohol with a tiny $2 corkage per person, and the wait staff come and top up your wine - which you would expect in a high end, high priced restaurant.  But the tapas banquet menus start at only $16 per head!!  For kids you can order the specific tapas plates - our kids love the grilled haloumi as one option!

More recently it has become a regular stop for us for Saturday brunch.  The colder evening weather and "triplet toilet training" have restricted our dinner outings temporarily. 

Soul Bistro does not have a specific kid's menu but there are many options for the children including honey, date and walnut loaf, french toast or simply toast with rose whipped butter.  There are also sweet options in their window.  Our children love the homemade lemonade and the milkshakes, and I love the coffee. 

No provided activities for kids, but there is enough space for them to run around after they have eaten and toilets right nearby - which has been very handy for us of late!  You just have to be careful as the road is quite close as is the TAB.  They can very quickly wander off to the road or sneak in through the auto doors of the TAB if you are not watching.

I love this place and would highly recommend it to families.  Might see you there on a Saturday morning!
