Beautiful location, casual but smart atmosphere, certainly worth travelling the short distance off the highway. The chowder was a huge helping and we shared a fish of the day and chips. Friendly service and good value. Incredible site.

We stopped off at the Pavilion on our way to Te Anau. We were the first customers to arrive and we were made very welcome even with though we did not want lunch and had muddy boots. Great service and wonderful location.

We popped into The Pavilion in the afternoon of the long weekend for a beer and a coffee and to check the dinner menu. What a great location - not too wild that day but i imagine it could be. The service was great - efficient and friendly.
We decided to return for dinner and really enjoyed it. The rack of lamb was cooked perfectly as was the steak ! The veges (cauliflower) were a bit uneventful but the roasties yum. We would return !

The Pavillion was recommended to us, and we were pleased we left the main highway to check it out. It is positioned directly opposite the beach and right next door to a playground which would be handy if you had kids. The food was very reasonably priced and absolutely delicious. Great service too. Thanks for catering for our large group at such short notice. :)

Went for a cruise to this lovely wee spot for our wedding anniversary. The staff there were awesome. They were attentive, friendly and were more than happy to assist with personalising my wife's dessert (as a surprise). The food is fairly standard, i.e. fish and chips, burgers, chowder etc, but the price and portion sizes are outstanding.

We'll definitely be frequenting this spot throughout summer.
