In October 2003 two wonderful entrepreneurs came to Tjep. with their wish to start a new unique restaurant concept that would welcome parents and their children without looking like a playground.

Indeed parents don’t necessarily want to spend the evening with Donald Duck when they go out (nor do the children by the way!). The first Praq restaurant opened it’s doors shortly after and became quite succesful and well-known.

After 5 succesful years our client realized that the formula had the potential to become a restaurant chain, thus opening two new venues is 2008. Presented here is the first of the two that opened in Amersfoort, Netherlands.

Again we tried to create a restaurant that is inspiring and fun for children, while being comfortable and enjoyable for their parents. This in an integrated rather than separated manner, which is more usually the case.
