The experience of eating out in Europe varies greatly from region to region and country to country. Most countries will provide some level of service for parents dining out with children and many of the major tourist destinations will have family restaurants and options for toddlers on the menu. If you are travelling to the UK,  Ireland, Germany or Spain for example, you will find there are high chairs and also baby changing facilities in many restaurants. Such facilities and high chairs are notably lacking in other countries such as France. If you are travelling around Europe, it is best to bring a good changing mat and a fold away high chair to ensure that you don’t end up holding toddlers while you eat (See our destination guide for information on eating out).
