We had a lovely meal. Not extremely pricey. They have a new menu. Just beautiful. Wonderful views of moonta bay. The establishment has accomodation which price was great and the room we had, had been refurbished. This restaurant is family friendly. Only a short walk to the jetty and playground and splash town. Well done guys.

Stayed at the Moonta Bay Caravan Park in 2013 just before the festival. Brilliant. Had Dinner at the Patio Restaurant, very nice and best of all discovered the best beer in the world. Copper Coast Swanky. Brewed only every two years and only available from the Motel or direct from the brewers Copper Coast Wines. Encourage all beer lovers to... More

Great location, the rooms whether facing out to the beach side or the car park, are modern, comfortable, clean and tidy with a bit of elbow room. If you are looking for a relaxing stay, near a great beach, some where to park the boat. A walk or fishing from the jetty, visit Moonta and surrounds. This motel is a... More

Arrival and check-in was fine, however the room was small and cramped and the bathroom even worse. Obviously the motel has been built in a different era and has to make do with the space available. However I have been in motels that have addressed this well and are pleasure to stay in. Moonta Bay Patio needs to research these... More

Last week we stayed for three nights at the Moonta Bay Patio Motel. It is well located within walking distance of the jetty but our room was at the back and we couldn't appreciate the good view of the sea. There was a good view from the restaurant area where we had dinner one night - compliments to the chef... More

Had 2 meals in 2 nights at the Patio Restaurant, both evenings were awesome. We all had different meals and they were cooked to perfection. The service was friendly and excellent. Stef, Mat and the team are to be commended on great food and service. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone who visits this great little seaside town.

My husband and I have just returned from 2 nights of a 3 night travel auction to the Moonta bay motel. We have been there twice before so we knew we were getting a budget motel. The new managers have it running ok, but we were entitled to a 241 meal in the restaurant one night as part of our... More

We are sorry that your experience with us was not what you expected.

Have stayed here 3 times now, each time has been great.Great service and hospitality. Short walk to the beach and jetty! The resturant does good meals and has a fair wine selection.The new playground area for kids is a short walk towards the jetty and has water rides etc for kids.Overall it's a great place to stay.
