“Elegant and enjoyable.”
Reviewed 14 March 2013

I'm not quite sure what the previous reviewer meant by no atmosphere. I guess if you're looking for a "scene" you won't find that here, but the bar area is large enough to accomodate quite a crowd. We went last night for an early dinner and I was completely impressed with the way the bar and dining area are organized. Outdoor seating with incredible views and excellent food made for a wonderful time. We've been in Tobago for almost 3 weeks now and this was by far the most elegant place we've dined. Service was good, especially by Tobago standards. Highly recommended!

“A fantastic lunch venue”
Reviewed 13 March 2013

Always a delight to stop here for lunch after a shopping in the lowlands. Short well prepared lunch menu with light bites and larger dishes depending how hungry you are. Fantastic views and good quality selection of wines.

“good food - no atmosphere”
Reviewed 8 March 2013

It was our anniversary so we were looking forward to a great evening but unfortunately there were only two other diners so there was no atmosphere at all. It was a Thursday which is a changeover day on the island maybe that's why. The food was good though and because there were only 4 diners the waiter was attentive. We would go back but not alone.

“Good food, but ......”
Reviewed 25 November 2012

We dined at The Pavilion Restaurant on our first night in Tobago. We got there after sunset but you really can imagine the amazing view from the restaurant....I wish I had reached there earlier to take it in. We arrived a bit early for our reservation but given that most of the guests there were having drinks and we were the only diners at the time, we were promptly seated and attended to.

Our waitress was pleasant but a tad clueless when it came to understanding the menu. We asked what was the "catch of the day' and she took the menu and read out the what was written under catch of the day i.e....what it came with....so we asked in another way.....what fish is being served? But it took a few more tries before she understood what we were asking.

The food choice we made were very good....the starters of callaloo and crab cake....and the main course of lamb and it turns out that the catch of the day was king fish...which was really tasty. There were only 2 desserts offered but what we chose was nice.

The problem came when time to pay...we were told that the credit card machine was not working. I offered to pay with a TT cheque but that was not acceptable....they wanted cash but we did not have that amount on us....so my dining companion stood his ground....so the waitress went back in to attempt another try, and the card machine worked this time.

This was a mar on a relatively nice dinner and I believe that given there were guests before us (granted we seemed to be the only diners that night)...they should have known that the machine was not working that evening and should have informed us before we were seated.

“Such a shame as the setting is amazing but food really not good .”
Reviewed 11 November 2012 via mobile

The setting is wonderful and the cocktails lovely to start, but it then just went downhill. The food was so disappointing and having been told all the dishes that were unavaliable due to no shrimp or lobster we had such a limited choice. There was only ice cream for dessert and whilst the lady serving tried hard it couldn't make up for the quality of food. No sparkling water and half the wine list missing!
