Vote now: Give thanks to the city’s most welcoming eateries by voting for best kid-friendly dining

There’s a fine art to dining out with family. With many factors to consider, including the needs of guests big and small, much can be said about eateries that make it easy. It’s time to celebrate the restaurants that have this experience carefully planned out — the experts at making us and our loved ones feel welcome, whatever the occasion. Vote now for your favourite from our shortlist — or if there’s an establishment you think we may have overlooked, be sure to add them in the comment box.

Everybody who votes goes in the draw to win one of three $1000 vouchers to be spent at one of the American Express Local Dining Collection locations — a list of which can be found here.

Voting has now closed. The 2022 Denizen Hospo Heroes presented by American Express will be announced in the Winter issue of Denizen magazine (released on 23rd May, 2022).
