The vast majority of restaurants in Bled are family-friendly, as smaller portions for children have been placed on the menus, adapted to their tastes, and in most of them high chairs for children are also available. Among the sweet stops for small children, we recommend the Zima confectionery and the Kavarna Park, where children will be impressed by a real robot.
