They closed about 18 months ago, I don't like that they are closed. Tourist books should be updated and hotels, cruise liners should update their information

Pavilion was a great location and very nice food in a stylish setting (although small portion sizes in the tasting menu and priced at the high end). Sadly, though, this review is just to report that the restaurant is closed as of late May this year.

I haven't been for a year but we felt it was overpriced and undewhelming food. Views are stunning however and it's a really great setting for a night out.

I dined here with friends on a beautiful autumn Saturday for lunch. The location of the restaurant is great, right on the promenade overlooking the harbour. Unfortunately on that day there was a wedding being held in the best room of the establishment, and we were relegated to a very ordinary room called the Heritage room. When you are paying... More

Poor welcome on arrival with distracted staff who did not seen that bothered to have customers at all, and unfortunately that theme continued. Ordered the Degustation menu, which sounded divine, however the delivery & experience did not match the menu description. Portion sizes were very very small ( even for degustation) and food combinations did not work so well at... More

What a disappointment! We went to the Pavilion for my birthday with 10 friends and I was so embarrassed for making them go there and the experience completely ruined my birthday dinner.  We sat down at 8pm and 45 minutes later I had to go and complain that we were still without even a glass of wine. I also had... More

This restaurant has great appeal. A modern setting surrounded by wonderful water views with great food and friendly service. Standouts were the crab entree and the peking duck which was succulant and tender. However do not expect the duck to be served up as in a Chinese restaurant - this duck was served sliced with an excellent jus made from... More

Another restaurant that's trying the shared plate concept. We went there for lunch. They suggested 3 per person of the entree size. We went for 1 entree size and 2 main size. The entree size averaged $25 which wecthougjt was very overpriced for the size of the plate. We had the prawns. The flavour was amazing, very fresh but it... More

We had hoped that with such a great view that the food would be great too. Unfortunately it wasn't. It was overpriced for the tiny portions that we. The fish we had was bland and the lamb wasn't very good quality. It is worth noting that the desserts and the wine list were good but we were generally disappointed given... More
