Official C-19 Statement

To our loyal John Dory’s customers,

In level 1, our restaurants are open for sit-down meals, takeaways, deliveries, call and collect and click and collect. 

Masks are required to be worn by all customers 2 years and older.

Kids Play Area

John Dory’s Fun Tanks are open and we look forward to welcoming your kids for a whale of a time! We’re big on health and safety, and have implemented the following strict precautions:

  • Sanitising all hands and feet upon entry and exit of the play area
  • Masks to be worn by all kids aged 2 years and older
  • The play area is regularly cleaned and sanitised
  • Our play area attendants are trained in COVID-19 safety precautions


Kids 2 years and younger are not required to wear a mask inside the restaurant. Unfortunately, all toddler play areas are closed due to COVID-19 regulations around physical distancing and the sharing of soft toys. It is advised that children aged 2 years and younger do not enter the kids’ play area, for their own safety.

Please note that while we do our very best to minimise the risks and spread of COVID-19, children play and use the John Dory’s Fun Tanks at their risk.
