Fucina is a an Italian contemporary restaurant based in Paddington St.
We loved the food, the staff and the service. Everything was impeccable. The bonus for us, a family including a 5 year old daughter and a 3.5 year old son, was Sharky and George - a children’s entertainment and lunch service they offer as part of their offering. Children need to be aged 4+ but my tall 3.5 year old son slipped in quietly.
Although quietly are not words I would associate with Sharky and George. Fun, frolics, continuous activity are what both kids experienced.. My daughter even had a second lunch as she had eaten upstairs with us.
They start at 1pm but my kids eat at midday so the restaurant very kindly allowed them to eat their lunch upstairs with us and then go down. Sharky and George had no objections to her joining in with all the children eating downstairs too. It was not easy getting my daughter back upstairs at 3.30pm. Meanwhile my son with my nephew came up and down a few times and the restaurant had no objections.
A truly fabulous place. Each child (for lunch and entertainment) cost £20. We are returning.
