Green tea asparagus and mint soup, very tasty, bit salty for my taste, but less than a thimble full! Well it was free so can't complain! But if you are going to give a free taster make sure it covers the bottom of the dish? Crevette with melon and wild peas very undercooked, nothing worse than a raw prawn that... More

We only had breakfast here, but it was fantastic. The atmosphere is beautiful, with huge arrays of orchids, fantastic buffet offerings that are replenished with beautiful plating virtually instantly. The coffee was fantastic, the service incredibly attentive. Very creative Eggs Benedict. Just a really nice breakfast. The nice views of the Baur au Lac gardens are also wonderful to look... More

We were visiting Zurich for the weekend and we were looking for a really good restaurant to have our wedding anniversary dinner. We booked a table at the Pavillion online, after visiting TA, reading the reviews and also visting the Pavillion webpage to check out the menu. Nothing of the above, however, could have sufficiently prepared us for the actual... More

I really enjoyed the food, but am rather unsure I would go there again given the price. Don't get me wrong, I do think the meal was worth it, the ambiance is nice, the service is great and the food was tasty... but for some reason it did not make the cut to my favourites' list!

I decided on a whim to do a walk in without a reservation at lunch time one weekday and they were able to accommodate me without hesitation.

We came here for our anniversary dinner and been meaning to go for a long time. Well, it was worth it! First, the decor is lovely, sumptuous but subdued. The round banquette in the center of the room is a wonderful focal point. When we arrived at our table, the staff had scattered rose petals all over the table in... More

Having tested a few of the other top-of-the-list restaurants in Zurich, I have zero doubt this is by far the best table in town. The service is top-notch, food is visual, complex and delicate. Again, deserves the number 1 spot.

Breakfast at the quietly elegant Pavillion is a perfect experience. Menu or buffet, or both. The service is just right. You'll not want to leave.
