Yes, can't see there being a problem as long as you book well in advance. There are high chairs but you may be better to check with the hotel about the pram situation.

The restaurant is on the 7th floor and there is a lift. I did not see any stairs but would think it would be very tiring to climb 7 floors. The lifts are very quick so I don't think it would bother you.
