We visited on the weekend during a trip from Sydney and were really underwhelmed. The pizza we ordered was bland, and my steak was pretty poor. I ordered the eye fillet ($40), rare and it was delivered ~medium to the table. The website looks extremely professional and the menu is impressive, but our dining experience was a complete let down.... More

Passing through Bathurst late evening and feeling famished we entered Pantano's Bar & Grill expecting to have a fantastic feed. The decor was inviting, however even with the absence of clientele we were sat in the back near the Bathrooms and bar and observed that better dressed businessmen were 'displayed' in the better seats of the venue. We were expecting... More

Alright, I've been to Pantanos a few times and each time I've been pretty disappointed with my extravagantly priced, very average steak. I eat a lot of steak and the first thing I'll say is that an overall meal composed from steak and chips is incredibly bland; really all you're eating is a slab of beef and some unflavoured potato...

Dear TobySausage, As the owner and Manager of Pantano's Angus Bar & Grill I can only apologise profusely about your experience at our restaurant yesterday. I can honestly tell you that our Hollandaise and Bearnaise sauces are from a packet but our garlic cream, diane, mushroom, pepper and rib sauces are all made fresh daily, which we are very open...

It was accompanied by a great sauce. side plate of vegetable were at an extra cost, which is really annoying. Large serve of dessert, but others not too impressed with the gelato size serve... More

The steak I had was small but above average quality. The price was scaled far to highly for the meals quality and size. Apart from the steak, the prawns and chips were horrid and there was roughly 10 chips.. Overall I will not be visiting this establishment again, ever. Ever.

Dear Ash C, I am so sorry that your experience at Pantano's Bar & Grill was not favourable, I wish I had asked you at the table if you were happy with your meal and then I would have had a chance to fix it up. Or if you had let me know I would have been more than happy... More

The evening we visited for dinner was busy. Service was nice - water on table without having to ask, drinks served promptly etc. The actual timing of meals was odd though - a few groups which arrived well after our group and ordered after us received food before us. There did seem to be quite a wait between breads/brushettas to... More

Went on reccomendation as were eating quite late and many other places were closed. Chicken schnitzel and veggies were were frozen and tasteless, totally over priced at $17. Steak was nice but the only fresh thing we recieved but still too pricey at $38. Beers were a rip at $8.50 for a peroni. The beer selection was also pretty crap.... More

Pantano's is right in the centre of Bathurst and is a thriving, bustling restaurant that caters to all tastes. From enormous racks of ribs, to fresh salads and everything in between. A very informal place that can get rather noisy. But good fun, good service and surprisingly good food.
