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.

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.

Friendly informed table service, interesting vegetables accompanying the beautifully cooked venison and lambshank, started our dining experience well. We topped it off with a Sweet Sensations shared platter for dessert ... perfect for those who want to try more than one
tempting treat. We enjoyed the comfortable and relaxing environment too and would definitely recommend the Pavilion to others.

The garlic bread is to die for- oozing with garlic butter and warm I could have eaten this as my main meal!
Great portion sizes and service was fantastic. My friend wanted to take her entree home as she couldn't finish it and at first the staff said they didnt do take home food but they accommodated her and she went home happy, as did I!

Took visitors from Auckland there for dinner.
Everyone enjoyed their meals. Our visitors rated the food as good as if not better than restaurants in the big city. I was impressed when I ordered steak without potato our waitress immediately asked if I would like a salad instead.
Great service.

This is the second time we have been here and it was just as good as the 1st. Service is superb and advice regarding entrée and desert choice from the maître D was spot on. We can highly recommend the fish of the day, the steak, the bangers and mash. The peanut butter and chocolate fondant is sublime as is the cheesecake. The lamb croquettes are divine, but rich, so definitely share, as advised! We will be back for other meals and with friends!
