In the My Restaurant Rules-style challenge, the two teams compete for the best menu with points for taste and presentation.
And Stephanie says the game was a huge hit, especially with her son excited to take the lead.
“We win with three points,” she told FEMAIL.
“We help them create the menu, but we mostly choose dishes that we all like to eat,” she said.
In the first round of the restaurant there was Stephanie and Dustin’s menu.
As a starter, the family had saganaki before dealing with dumplings for the main course.
Both menus were created by Sienna. The one designed by Dustin and Stephanie contained dumplings and sganaki, while Sienna and Dave’s had Swedish cakes and sushi

For dessert, the mother and son team served chocolate pudding with ice cream.
A week later, the papa-daughter team set up their menu and served nigiri at the beginning, followed by a shrimp salad and kladdkaka, a Swedish chocolate cake, at the end.
Stephanie said they are trying to do whatever they can to entertain the children despite the tight restrictions imposed by the Andrews government.

“It’s hard, especially now that playgrounds are banned,” she said.
