Looking for a place to take the kids for dinner on a Saturday night? If you’re close to the Wibautstraat, here’s a family-friendly option for you: The Pool at The Student Hotel.
The Pool isn’t just a bar with all-day dining. It caters especially for families at 17.30pm on Saturday nights. Now you know! My husband and I love to dine out with our daughter. We’re always looking for new, kid-friendly options, so we were happy to have the opportunity to try it out.
For just €10 per adult, order the family dinner at The Pool and get full servings of all-you-can eat chicken wings, fries, and a green salad. The Pool staff are attentive and pretty good at sensing when you’re ready for a refill! Kids under 12 eat for free, which makes it really good value for families with two or more kids (or just one really big eater).
Dessert is also included: we got a selection of various flavors of ice cream. Lemon sorbet was my favorite, but Tala was all about the melon.
For families with a stroller, you’ll be glad to know that The Pool is roomy and spacious. There’s lots of room for the mini’s to run around. The ambience is fuss-free and casual, and it’s still pretty quiet at 17.30 before the regular dinner crowd comes in so you can enjoy your family dinner in peace.
For curious kids, there’s lots to see and be entertained by. Tala was fascinated by the open kitchen and likes watching her food being prepared, as we do at home. (As you can see, she wanted to take pictures like mama!) She also got some coloring pages and pencils to draw while waiting for dinner. There also are board games, boxes of soft toys, and funky pieces of art like this one.
