Need to know:
Sunnyboy Beach Club is more than just the building itself. It offers you an experience the moment you walk through its doors. It has a great retro and tranquil atmosphere with spectacular views of Mordialloc Foreshore through its floor to ceiling windows. The view of the sun setting over the beach is not to be missed nor is it’s Kid Corner every Tuesday.

Introduced in the last school holidays and due to its popularity, SunnyBoy’s Kids Corner continues every Tuesday. They understand the difficulties of entertaining young children in restaurants and introduced their Kid’s Corner to provide a stress free dining experience for parents. It’s perfect for toddlers and preschoolers and is sectioned away from the main dining areas . Whether your kids love to draw, build, dress up, pretend play, read or craft, there is something for every child.

We especially love that the corner is an all day event and a perfect place to head for an early dinner. They had me at Kid’s Corner, but went a step further by offering Kids Eat Free every Tuesday too (*see t&cs)! They have plenty of kid friendly amenities, such as high chairs, room for prams, a kids menu and baby change facilities. They welcome children everyday of the week too, with colouring and pencils are on offer throughout the week. They tick all the boxes. I can honestly say that SunnyBoy is a parent’s dream come true!

This is the venue that keeps on offering value. They offer promos, such as “Midweek Feast”, “Wine & Dine Wednesdays”, “Bottomless brunch” on weekends and “Happy Hour” every Friday between 4-6pm. They have an incredible drinks menu, including a great range of cocktails. They will happily cater to dietary requirements too.

Our latest visit:

I often have submissions for kid friendly venues and SunnyBoy takes the lead of mentions. They continue to please parents and children and I can absolutely see why. Living very close to the venue, we had it at the top of our list to investigate first hand and were very pleased to be personally invited for dinner.

I arrived on a beautiful evening with the sun shining through the windows. I was immediately greeted and welcomed by staff. Our table was shown to us, which was situated perfectly next to the windows offering a spectacular view of outside. My kids and I headed to the play area and joined another family currently occupying the space. It’s a very inviting space for parents to meet other parents and for children to play together or have their own space if they prefer it. There are bench seats available for parents to observe their children, while they have a bite to eat or something to drink.

We had a brief play with building blocks or rather I say “crashing blocks” and a little tea party with my princess, before returning to our table to order the kids meals. The staff were prompt with attending to us and were happy to answer any questions we had about the menu. All staff that attended to us were very friendly and interacted with my children. The kitchen were also incredibly fast with delivering our kids meals (macaroni and cheese and fish and chips).

I ordered two small plates (Sumac & Alma Paprika Fried Calamari and Mushroom Arancini served with capsicum aioli from the specials board) and my husband ordered Confit Duck Leg served with pommes anna, roasted parsnip, pear puree, sour cherries and parsnip crisps. All three plates were quick and presented beautifully. The food was one of many highlights of the evening. They were delicious and also enjoyed by the kids. My son especially enjoyed eating meat off the duck bone, but won’t touch any poultry at home!

Staff continued to be attentive, checking in with us, ordering more fries for our chip monsters and clearly plates promptly. We returned to the play area after our meals for another play and my daughter roamed the venue trying to locate her favourite area (the kitchen). They happily engaged in conversation where appropriate and their interaction with my children was genuine. I quietly overlooked staff with other families and witness a staff member offer pencils and colouring at the table, even when the play area was on offer. Staff definitely go the extra mile here and I feel it is in the reflection of the culture of the venue and it’s owners.

Our visit was a wonderful experience for all four of us. We received exceptional service and food and the kids were able to be kids in a relaxing dining environment. No bit of dropped food, free roaming child or banging blocks were seen as an issue. SunnyBoy offer the whole package of meeting families needs when dining out and we are glad that they’re continuously striving to improve the dining experience for families (while also considering the needs of other guests when childless).

What they do well:
– Tick all the boxes for kid-friendly offerings.
– Attentive service and prompt kitchen times
– Delicious food and spectacular scenery.
