If the Pavillon runs the same scam as it's sister restaurant, the Palmenhaus, does, then be sure to ask if they're going to hit you up for a “Gedeck / Cover” charge before you sit down. When you get your check, you'll find it cleverly buried between your drinks and your entrées. The fine print at the bottom of their menu states that it's for the “use of the table and a basket of bread.”

This is a outdoor restaurant that is a local hangout near to the Hofburg. The grill (they use the word Barbecue) starts around 6:30, and if you are a larger group you might want a reservation. The menu is limited to the grilled stuff plus a few salads and sides, as the focus is on the grill. And it's yummy! Two of us had the grilled trout and one had beef, and it was all good. The service is slow by American standards but the staff is friendly and it is a place to relax and enjoy. If you arrive before 6:30, just sit and relax and have a beer or some wine while you wait.

My wife and I were walking through the park looking for a nice outdoor cafe for dinner after we had visited the Hoffburg Imperial Palace which is only a few minutes away. We found it here as there are many outdoor tables in a courtyard surrounded by lush vegetation. We were one of the first diners and had a quiet spot all to ourselves. We both opted for the grill specialties (we were told that if you order food after 6:30 pm. this is your only option) and were not dissapointed. My wife had the grilled squid and I had a grilled trout (whole) accompanied by baked potato. They also specialized in steaks of course on their outdoor grill. You can wonder over and watch your food being cooked.

If you just want a few drinks they also have a bar stool area in the middle of the courtyard. We stayed until dusk when floodlit lights come on adding to the outdoor atmosphere.

during summer they offer bbq from the smoker so we gave it a try. reservation (recommended) worked well, got a nice table outside. drinks arrived quick, coffee took a little longer but was fine.
ordered a black angus, medium, with side dish & 1 sauce (~ 20€) which was really excellent. comes from a smoker so it needs some time. but really tasty.
stuff are nice, location is in the city center, good atmosphere.
will go there again.
