The Ibiza Town Council has presented an initiative entitled ‘Restaurants Amics de la Infància’; ‘Kid-friendly restaurants’ , a pioneering initiative in Spain that is currently being implemented in Ibiza and for which 17 establishments have already signed up.
The initiative hopes to create a network of kid-friendly restaurants by offering a distinction to establishments that comply with a series of requirements set out by the council. These include a commitment to offering a changing area for babies, children’s s cutlery, a children’s menu, in which the dessert includes fresh fruit and the assurance that babies may be breastfed in the establishment.
Restaurants that form part of this network of Kid-friendly Restaurants will enjoy a series of benefits that includes a listing in the official guide to Kid-friendly Restaurants. In addition they will feature as part of the town council’s tourism promotion content.
In the words of the mayor of Ibiza, Rafa Ruiz, “this initiative is part of our continuing efforts to have Ibiza declared a child-friendly destination”. The aim of the initiative is to offer local and visiting families as complete a guide as possible to those restaurants that have been adapted to the needs that families may have when it comes to eating or dining out.
