Great food - pleasant atmosphere - simple decor - high ceilings. My husband ordered Salmon and I ordered Seafood Linguini. Both were well-presented and satisfying. We would have gone again, but our stay was not long enough!

Hi fancytht2, Thanks for a great review - a good choice of wherever possible local fresh produce is used to offer variety - the salmon & linguini dishes are popular - the lamb rack is to die for to name but a few.

Now this was a great find, normally we steer away from hotel restaraunts but this one is a real keeper. Its open to guests, locals and visitors alike and a booking is wise as it can get quite full. The chef has a real flair not to mention a good selection of dishes. We especially liked the rack of lamb... More

We have eaten here often and always find the food and service to be excellent. From the specials,( I love the Wild Mushroom salad) to the deserts, we have never been disappointed at The Pavilion Restaurant. Chef Sean will even do a Gluten Free Bruschetta for you. Love the helpful friendly staff who know the menu well.

We booked a table on Friday night as we were staying at the resort and were told earlier in the week, that there would be an alacarte menu then but it turned out to still be the buffet. Not a great selection of options and some of the hot food was cold and some of the desserts had been out... More

Good morning Vanessa W, We were surprised to see this review 9 months (January 2016) after you had stayed, and from memory, we did have 1 night where there was an issue with the power tripping out and has been covered off on other reviews at that time. The bulk of our guests during this very busy period, enjoy the... More

We had a nice evening. It is outside the center, so you go by car or taxi. It was worth going to this place. I had the tomato soup and that was fresh and perfect and also the lamb was very good. If you want to be served and sit half outside with a heater and have a good meal,... More

Amazing value - kids eats for free. It is very rare you go to a restaurant and receive fast service and high quality food cooked to perfection every time and... receive a free kids quality meal with every adult meal. Exceptional value even without the kids meal value. We have eaten there three nights running and left 11 completely clean... More
