We visited Pavilion on an evening of a very hot day. We were sited in the garden which was arranged very well - tables were not crowded, all looked elegant and it was great to be outside on such a great summer day. The service was helpful, kind but not overwhelming. So far great. We ordered the dishes from the... More

Good service and definitely 1* Michelin quality food (don't miss the cheese). Expensive but worth it.

This restaurant, based at Badenerstrasse 457, 8003 Zurich, offers superb food. We enjoyed dinner there on 29 July and found the owner + waitress on duty were both charming and very attentive. In addition, all three courses which we opted to try that evening were "melt in the mouth" delicious, especially the homemade pea + mint soup and the raspberry... More

This Michelin 1-star is clearly shooting for a second star. Dishes on the tasting menu (Harmonie) are artfully prepared as well as tasty, with interesting combinations of ingredients and great presentation. Service was impeccable throughout our meal. We elected to adopt the wine paring for the first two courses (after champagne with the amuses) then switched to a bottle of... More

I've been here 2 times in the last few months for a business lunch. I must say this is real elegance and top standards, the restaurant is beautiful. the wait staff are so attentive and professional. The food is always exceptional and well presented. The ambiance is a little stiff and it's not very private for conversations.

On a very short business trip, I did not have much time to explore restaurants in Zurich. Luckily, I didn't have to. The food was excellent - service, top-notch.

Did I mention how good the sauces were? And the foam? Most of us enjoyed the Harmonies tasting menu. Billed as five courses, we probably had seven of eight with all the additions and surprises. The Arctic char and the veal were expertly prepared and accompanied by subtle sauces which complimented the food. As you would expect from a Michelin... More

Pavillon is beautiful - the setting is reminiscent of the lobby of Georges V in Paris. The dining room is a former circular summer porch that has been enclosed with windows on all sides looking on to the gardens filled with modern sculpture. In the center there is a magnificent floral display in purples and green. The theme carries through... More
