“Good meal in an attractive setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2013

We are regulars at Mr Yakitori in the same hotel as the Pavilion, but decided to have a change. The menu is good, and the kids menu makes a welcome change from nuggets and chips, with several healthier options. The service is beyond friendly, just as we've come to expect from the Distinction staff. They do a fantastic high tea, too just $10 including a fancy coffee and plenty of food - you can't beat that for value in Rotorua.

“Fantastic Dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2013

Wow, as a local i thought i had seen all the places to dine in Rotorua but was very pleased with the Pavilion. Set back off the street my wife and I were very impressed by the cosy restaurant we loved sitting watching the native birds playing in the flowering trees in the garden right next to our table. Our meals were top notch and the service was excellent so we will be returning again the next time Nana babysits the kids. Thanks Pavilion we loved it....

“Birthday dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2013

My wife and I enjoyed her birthday dinner at the Pivilion restaurant. The food was great and the steak was done to perfection. The service was the best I have had for many years.
The atmosphere was ideal and quiet with romantic music at the correct volume.
Value was fair.
