We’ve already brought you our round-up of our favourite kid-friendly restaurants and cafes, but now we’re going one step further. Get ready for the best kids eat free deals in Singapore so you can enjoy the sweet taste of saving your dollars.
Bounce on down to Cafe Melba, already one of our fave kid-friendly restaurants in Singapore. It’s not just the bouncy castle fun that makes this a firm fave of ours (we can’t wait for the day it makes its return!). We also seriously dig the money-saving meal deals. Every Monday (excluding eve of and public holidays), kids eat free all day with the purchase of an adult’s main meal. From 5–8pm, there’s often an arts and crafts corner to make it especially family friendly, although that may be on ice for the time being (cheers, Covid-19). There’s also the Kids Club Card to consider, where you – you personally, parents! – get rewarded for your return visits. Ask staff for more information or check the website for deets.

Ready to get sticky? We’ve been known on occasion to get stuck into some rib action at Morganfield’s. Wear your stretchy pants, grab yourself a bib and get ready to chow down on some hearty grub. Speaking of grubs, your little ones can enjoy a kids eat free deal every Saturday, Sunday and public holiday. We’re hearing good things about the mac ‘n’ cheese, fish fingers, hot dogs and grilled chicken tenders, all served with french fries and coleslaw. Not the greenest menu in sight admittedly, but it sure is tasty. Our only tip? Don’t wear white.

Hands up if you love Jamie Oliver! (*waves every available limb in air*) Over at Jamie’s Italian at Forum, the kids’ menu is full of nutritionally balanced yumminess. We wouldn’t expect anything less from Mr Pukka himself. Meal deal mains – including margarita pizza with seven-veg sauce, oozy mozzarella cheese and fresh basil, or chicken lollipops with sweet potato fries – come with a fresh (and fun) salad, and refreshing fruity water. A refreshing option from your more ‘yellow’ offerings.

Marché Mövenpick Singapore
Can we get a whoop whoop for Marché Mövenpick? Even without the kids, we’ll often swing by on a lunchbreak sojourn (while we’re not busy working from home, of course). But when it comes to kids eat free deals in Singapore, this one will leave you and your wallet happy as a clam. Every Monday–Thursday, little diners aged three to 10 can dine for free and enjoy a free kids meal, so long as you spend $80 in a single receipt. The options here get the thumbs up from us parents, and include savoury crêpes, röstis and pastas. The Marché folks also promise ice-cream (in a waffle cone – nom!) and a fun surprise, plus a glass of juice or soft drink.
Show us a kid who doesn’t live off pasta and we’ll eat our Birkenstocks. Over at Holland Village’s La Nonna, kids eat free on Sundays. Littlies aged between three and 10 can choose either an 8” pizza or small pasta with every accompanying adult. Bellissimo!

With its huge variety of international and local food, we know even the fussiest of kids will be easily pleased at this top-notch buffet restaurant. Other than that, we love the sound of the outdoor herb garden and the unique food theme for each night of the week. It certainly encourages repeat visits! Oh, and we’re also digging the sound of the DIY soda station, where guests can customise their own drink with a selection of fresh fruits and homemade syrup. How cool (although that’s most likely on ice for the time being)?! Make sure you’ve got a Sands Reward Lifestyle membership for this one. For safety precautions and to minimise crowds at the buffet counters, the self-serve buffet is currently replaced with tableside service.
Kids eat free deal: Children under nine eat free with each paying adult. Promotion applicable for lunch and dinner buffets only, and not applicable on eve of public holiday and public holidays.
Where: RISE, 10 Bayfront Ave, Tower 1 Lobby Hotel, Marina Bay Sands, Singapore 018956
Bread Street Kitchen by Gordon Ramsey
He drops the f-bomb like it’s going out of fashion, but pottymouthed celeb chef Gordon Ramsey’s restaurant at Marina Bay Sands is most definitely PG-rated. If you’re a Sands Reward Lifestyle member, your tiddlywinks can enjoy a complimentary dessert, and can also try their hands at designing their own dessert plate. All that aside, the kids’ menu is pretty appealing, if we may say so.
Kids eat free deal: Complimentary dessert
Where: Bread Street Kitchen Singapore, 2 Bayfront Avenue 01 – 81 The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, 018956
Yes, Tree Lizard in Dempsey may be closed, but the good times still roll at the Lazy Lizard restaurants. On weekends and public holidays, children under 11 dine for free with one paying adult at the three locations. Kids’ meal fare includes bangers and mash, fish and chips, pastas, pizzas and so on. Over at Newest and Promenade, there are also cosy corners with books and games to keep your knee-highs entertained… and away from your truffle fries.

The British Club
Yes, you do have to be a member or a member’s guest, but the meal deal ‘Winey Kids Thursday’ was too good to not mention. Over at Verandah Cafe, Splash Cafe and Scores Sports Bar, kids get a free meal off their own menu with every adult main meal bought. Not only that, but it’s BYO wine. Yippee! Pick up a bottle of your fave plonk from Windsor Shop and don’t pay corkage. We’ll drink to that.
Where: The British Club, 73 Bukit Tinggi Rd, Singapore 289761
Don’t forget as well that lots of hotels in Singapore have awesome weekend buffet options, and many are being adapted in style in light of the current pandemic. Many also offer free kids meals. Age caps can vary though, so do your research first. You might want to check out our article on most family-friendly weekend brunches to whet your appetite!
