Pantry is the place to B in Brighton, crowded at lunch time and romantic at night. Nice but quite expensive menu. The service is quick and smiley. Casual wine list. The restaurant offers romantic design but the talkative clients can quickly ruins your diner. Nice food concept for those who like to look the brighton population.

We went to the Pantry for a nice lunch out with a visitor. The food is very nice and I basically cannot really fault it. But, the prices on some of the food items are very expensive for what you get and some of the prices on other dishes are very low considering what you get. Overall, the Pantry is... More

My two little girls always enjoy the Crumbed Chicken w/ Chips or the Kids Burger. Overall, a great restaurant for families, but make sure... More

That's pretty much all I would have to say about this restaurant loving that they have tablecloths. The service mediocre and I'm not a fan of restaurants that are opened for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner nor am I a fan of various cuisines in one restaurant, just pick one opening time and one cuisine and make it amazing....

Menu is eclectic; ambience of a 'scene' for visitors to the suburb; quality does not always reflect price or aspirations.
