I’d been to Enacsa Lane Cove a few times before and loved it, but always for dinner with friends and always after 8pm, so arriving with Miss 3 and Miss 4 months early on a Saturday night I wasn’t sure how child-friendly it would be.
I was so impressed! Almost all the tables had children with them and the restaurant couldn’t be more kid-friendly at all J . By 6pm the restaurant was almost full and the atmosphere was buzzing.
As soon as we walked in the door Miss 3 was offered a highchair (which surprisingly she said yes to) and some pencils and Encasa colouring in and she was set. Hubby and I ordered some wine and were set too 😉 .
The kids (or ninos in Spanish) menu is small but tasty with calamari, beef meatballs or crumbed chicken all with fried potato and comes with a juice and ice-cream for $15. When Miss 3’s calamari arrived she was all smiles, it was huge!! Your child will not go hungry here. Although there was a small salad with the kid’s meal, Miss 3 loved her veggies so she happily picked from our olives, blue cheese cauliflower and even stole one or two of our Mejillones A La Marinera (black mussels in fresh tomato sauce with fresh basil & chili).
We also had Carrilleras Al Vino Tinto (beef cheeks in red wine, cauliflower textures) and Libriti, papa, amarilla (crumbed pork loin filled with cheese and serrano ham). Hubby then indulged in some Baileys ice cream, delicious! We all left full and with huge smiles, the food and the service couldn’t have been better.
The venue itself had enough room to fit our pram and although the toilets are downstairs, there is a disabled restroom upstairs that your pram can fit in if needed.
Will we be back with kids in tow? In a heartbeat!
