Kid-friendly Victoria restaurants for birthdays

The best kid-friendly restaurants are laidback and inviting with a good selection of food at reasonable prices. Celebrate your birthday boy or girl’s special day at one of these Victoria venues where you’ll be treated to a great party, complete with decorations, activities and food everyone can enjoy.

Pizzeria Prima Strada

1
2960 Bridge St, Victoria, BC V8T 4T3

Pizza parties are a children’s party classic, and Pizzeria Prima Strada makes delicious pizza kids love. Wood-fired for as little as 90 seconds, the pizzas are fresh, delicious and, most importantly, on the table quickly. Your guests can share all kinds of flavours, from classics like the pepperoni to adventurous choices that feature homemade sausage. Their menu has plenty of options for picky kids and they have more than enough space at their communal-style tables for larger groups.

Ithaka Greek Restaurant

2
1102 Yates St, Victoria, BC V8V 3M8

If your kid’s a little older, they’ll probably enjoy the meal and entertainment at Ithaka. The Greek food is authentic, but that’s only the beginning. Dmitri, the owner, and his brothers often come out and perform traditional Greek dancing for the patrons. It’s an exciting place to be and adapts well to larger groups. And while there isn’t a kid’s menu, ordering family-style can be an easy way to make sure everyone gets enough.

Japanese Village Restaurant

3
734 Broughton St, Victoria, BC V8W 1E1

For dinner and a show, there are few better places than The Japanese Village. For larger parties, you’ll get set up in your own private room with your own private Teppanyaki chef. The chef puts on an impressive performance while cooking up your food, serving up a variety of delicious items throughout the experience. It’s sure to keep your party entertained and well fed all at the same time. There’s a children’s menu as well, with special portions made for those aged 10 and younger.

IMAX Victoria Museum

4
675 Belleville St, Victoria, BC V8W 1A1

IMAX Victoria has both the facilities and experience to help you throw an unforgettable birthday party. Guests can enjoy the two IMAX films that are running at the time of your booking, or you can get a private screening of a Hollywood blockbuster. When the show’s over, you can take your party out to enjoy the Royal BC Museum’s Year-Round Food Truck Festival. It’s a good way to get the kids outside after watching movies all day, and the selection of quick and delicious foods will be a perfect ending to a fun and educational party.

Aquaterra Cafe

5
4636 Elk Lake Dr, Victoria, BC V8Z 7K2

The pool in Saanich Commonwealth Place has a myriad of party themes that you can choose from, and all of them come with the option of a meal at the rec centre’s cafe, AquaTerra. Your kids can enjoy personalized activities led by a swimming instructor, a Hawaiian-themed splash time or even a mermaid party, where they can try out mermaid tails. Afterwards, they can all enjoy a light meal at the cafe that can also be decorated for the party.

Langford Lanes Bowling & Entertainment

6
1097 Langford Pky, Langford, BC V9B 0A5

The beloved Langford Lanes has reopened under new management who are more than happy to host your child’s birthday party. You can enjoy a few games of 10-pin bowling across multiple lanes and, afterwards, enjoy food from the Galloping Goose Grille in their new party room. Arcade games will also be available to vary the entertainment.

The Joint Pizzeria & Deli

7
1219 Wharf St, Victoria, BC V8W 1T9

The Joint’s extensive menu has plenty of options that can work around allergies and food sensitivities. Those with gluten sensitivities, for example, can select from The Joint’s dedicated gluten-free menu. You can expect to find plenty of kids’ pizza favourites, from pepperoni to Hawaiian, all made with high quality ingredients, often from their attached deli. If you prefer to hold your pizza party off-site, The Joint caters as well; they even offer discounts for larger orders.

Kid-friendly cafes are hidden gems in Victoria, treasured by both parents and kids alike. When your little ones are bored, hungry and fussy and you’re not sure what to do, try taking them to one of these cool cafes you can both enjoy.
Pizza is the perfect delivery meal. It travels well, can come in a limitless combination of styles and toppings and is perfectly designed for sharing. The next time you’re craving pizza without having to leave the comfort of your own home, have one of these pizza joints bring the party to you.
Chinese food is the original delivery food. Many of us grew up eating delicious Chinese favourites, such as fried rice, chicken balls, or beef and broccoli, from paper take-out containers. This much-loved cuisine – whether Cantonese, Szechuan or Western-style Chinese – can be delivered fresh to your door any day of the week. Here’s who to call when the craving strikes.
