Recently had dinner at this restaurant which never disappoints. The service is spot on and the meal selection is always good. Good value for money and will keep coming back.

The Pier Hotel set up is a little unique. You can order meals from the pub, The Rocks and Pantai when seated in any one of the three restaurants. This gives great menu range for those who are a little more difficult to please. We ate in Pantai and I had what was simply the best red duck curry I... More

Pantastic Pantai located on the ground floor of the Oaks Plaza Pier Hotel. 4.5 stars. They served us a wonderful meal. My wife has coeliac disease and they catered for her needs - she had the red duck curry. I had the crispy Barramundi served on a wonderful salad which was full of complex yet clean flavours. There was an... More

We are regulars here and have never been disappointed. The menu is medium size and has a good spread. The food is beautifully cooked with exquisitely fresh ingredients, and the staff, particularly management are all long term employees and make you feel special each time you dine. Not fine dining, but a perfect place for a casual well priced meal,... More

My wife and I have enjoyed so many meals at Pantai that I feel well qualified to review it: their quality is no flash-in-the-pan thing. Every aspect of the restaurant experience - locale, menu variety and price, kitchen output and service - has been top-notch. We've taken many interstate and overseas visitors there, and they've all rated it highly. Meals... More

was pleasantly surprised, $11.90 lunch deal that was cheap on price but not on quality. With a bottle of Giesen sav blanc at $35 (have paid $40 elsewhere in Glenelg) bill came to less than $60. Thai noodles and fish and chips fresh and healthy servings. Staff friendly and attentive

We were a family of parents, grand parents, children and grandchildren celebrating 2 birthdays for dinner expecting a nice night out. I read the reviews and some had high praise on food quality, some the opposite, but we decided to ignore the negative and go for the positive and that was a big mistake. The night did not turn out...
