Fannie Bay Super Pizza is an amazing kid friendly restaurant. As a Mum to four young kids I know taking kids out to dine at a restaurant can be challenging and tricky most of the time. Will the kids like the food, will the kids be too noisy or messy, will it be too busy, is the place family friendly? What do they have to keep my kids entertained or will I have to put an Ipad or my phone in front of them to keep them busy. Fannie Bay Super pizza ticks all the boxes for a family friendly restaurant and it is fast becoming a favourite place for my family to go to.
