Hmmmm. Watford is not exactly a culinary destination.

There is a crop of new restaurants at the near-bottom end of the High Street - three in a row in a lovely white art-deco-ish building, of which one is a Carluccio's. You generally have all the family-friendly chain options in that area - Pizza Express, Zizzi, Ask, Prezzo. A little further down there is a Lebanese restaurant which I have been to and thought was very good. At the very top of the high street it is pedestrianised and has a La Tasca, Nando's etc. Oh and Yates's Wine Lodge. hmm grin

My next recommendation would be a South Indian (i.e. mostly vegetarian) restaurant on Merton Road quite near the centre, which google maps tells me is called Rathiga. Parking is a bit crap around there but you might walk easily if you're staying near the centre.

If you need to eat on a Tuesday, Friday or Saturday lunchtime, go to the Charter Place Market. There is an utterly excellent sushi/noodle bar there, also a very good Indian cafe (I think these two share seating), and smaller counters for Caribbean and African hot food.

The Lebanese looks absolutely lovely, would love to try but dont think anything for DS.

Where do you go with your kids everyone???
