Succulent modern Australian cuisine. Simple, fresh and preciously tasty, every bite is savoured and enjoyed!!

Very friendly and experienced staff who will provide a great service making your dining experience one to remember!

I was seated outside because I had failed to reserve a table and was therefor entertained by a drunk local man so ideally, plan ahead and book as this place is popular!

What a fantastic find in Darwin. Good food and great service. We enjoyed all 3 courses, but a shared Entree of Ricotta Croquettes and our desserts (Flourless Chocolate Torte and Pear & Sticky date pudding) were real standouts. We are definently excited to return to Pavonia Place and hope our next visit is as good as our first.

The staff really made the difference and created a lovely night.
The food was very good. Loved the Entrée They were well presented and some of the best food i have had. The mains still need some work on them, We had the Baramundi that was covered in a pesto sauce. The sauce took away from the flavor of the fish and i would have been happier with a smaller portion of fish with maybe sauce on the side. My son in law had a huge eye fillet steak that was served rare at his request and he assures us that it was delicious! We shared one desert, the Tirimasu and it was simply stunning. At the end of the meal the staff and management were very keen to get our comments on the food which was a nice touch.
Special mention goes to the waiting staff who were friendly and professional and a credit to the Restaurant.

We dined at Pavonia Place on a VERY busy Saturday night and are delighted to report the service and food were of a very high standard.
We enjoyed a three course experience with two bottles of wine.
Highlights of our meal were the fresh local fish and divine tiramisu.
We were very impressed by the honesty of the staff when we asked why our favourite pork belly dish was not on the menu... Simply put, the chef was not guaranteed to receive his expected high standard of meat on a week by week basis so he decided to remove the item from the menu, rather than jeopardise customer quality. Fair enough we say!
By the time we finished our meal at 9pm, the second round of sittings were still arriving... Not bad for a Darwin restaurant out in the suburbs.
Highly recommended... Will definitely go back.

Ok so it's located in Nightcliff out the hustle and bustle of Darwin City... But who cares when you have great staff and amazing food!!

Darwin is crap for restaurants, but Pavonia Place stands out above the rest!!

Staff always attentive and nothing was too much trouble!

Food was great, and was an average price for Darwin, which I don't mind paying for if the food is nice.

I don't think tourists understand how hard it is to find a restaurant like this in Darwin and your effort and commitment is appreciated!!

Only thing I criticise is the fact that most of the pencils you have on the table to draw with are either broken, blunt or need sharpening, maybe a quick check before opening would ensure more creative drawings!!

Thanks guys!!
