Dining at the Pavilion Restaurant was a very enjoyable experience. The food was delicious. We had scallops that were yummmmmm. My husband and I both enjoyed our main meal and were very impressed with the standard of service - polite and quick. Everything was very clean and presentation of restaurant, table and food was perfect.

Fantastic food and hospitality from Rajiv and his team. We had to have three courses because it was so well presented and delicious. Well done team we’ll certainly be back and recommend it to others.

From our greeting to our goodbye, we were treated super special. We had about 3 different waitstaff serving us and even the manager came over for a chat. Very good service and clearly becoming a favourite of ours. The dining rooms beautifully set and the food outstanding! Very happy diners indeed.

The Pavilion Restaurant review by Aeryn Andis

From a fine dining meal of Carpaccio to a gourmet Chicken Burger, there was something on the menu for everyone. The service was excellent! All of the staff were friendly and our food was served to us in good time. Everything that was served was extremely delicious, all items that we ordered off the menu were presented fantastically!

Awesome kids menu, many choices that kids enjoy and wish to eat whenever dining at a restaurant. According to my younger brothers, their meal of Chicken wedges and an ice cream sundaes were yummy as.

All the desserts were lovely as well. Each plate had its own flare, yet all of them were delicious, popping with flavour. My father had the chocolate brownie to which he enjoyed every part of it, cleaning the plate till there was nothing left.

In my opinion I would recommend all of my friends to go to the Pavilion. The service was amazing, the food was extraordinarily delicious and the overall experience was delightful. Everyone who served our table were kind and helpful, I would definitely come again!

Sometimes you just don't feel like cooking a meal midweek. So we booked at the Pavilion on a Wednesday night with First Table and the meal was superb - we had venison & mahi mahi fish. The food presentation on the plate was excellent and it was nice to get veggies included. The venue is attractive, the setting feels cosy and the staff are very attentive. Will repeat :-)

Nice food, very helpful staff and easy to use the first table app.
I thought the desserts were not so appealing so didn't have one. I would suggest if there were a couple of simpler options,they could sell more.
Overall,we enjoyed our meal.

It was an amazing experience of fine dining at the Pavilion. Huge credit to the wait staff who were knowledgeable in their menu, wine pairings & remembering who ordered which meals. Generous portions of beautifully presented food, very tasty & flavourful. My beef fillet (cooked med rare) was spot one. Other diner's lamb shank was melt in the mouth. Dessert was also generous to finish our 3 course meal. Loved every mouthful from start to finish. We even had fun playing with the battery operated lamp on our table watching it change colours!! It was an awesome treat.
