I had lunch here with a friend, The food was great, meals were presented in a timely fashion. The pavilion is situated on the foreshore, so you have great views of lady bay, outdoor area to eat on summer days! The meals were well priced and tasty

These tourists decided to hit up the token tourist joint and it did not disappoint. We were a bit nervous about service as it was buzzing Sunday brunch and they seemed understaffed. After waiting 15mins before being served things started to roll smoothly. Good coffee and the tastiest corn fritter spread I've had in a long time. Fun people watching... More

Had breakfast here. She had the Pavilion breakfast and I had the BLT. If you have a small appetite, share the main. Save some space for the scones. After breakfast, take a walk along the coast and pier. Try to spot a penguin? You can drive your car to each lookout point, so don't walk the whole way!

We spent 2 hours here sitting outside taking in the views of boats and horses being exercised. Dogs being walked along the beach and families enjoying the sunshine. The food and menu is AWESOME

WE have found the Pavilion to offer a high standard of quality dishes at reasonable prices. The menu offers a comprehensive variety of food and is served reasonably fast. The staff are friendly and know their food. Backed by a delightful selection of cakes and drinks, makes this an extremely pleasant place to spend an hour over breakfast or lunch.

The salt was great, not too thick, not to thin. This salt has really raised the bar in restaurant salt.

This cafe is located close to the waterfront along a pier. We stopped here for lunch, we shared a tapas platter which was ok but not great for the price. The service was a bit slow. Apart from the location I wouldn't go here again mostly due to the food and service which were ok but not great.

Coffee with the girls or lunch with friends- a wonderful place to enjoy friendly service and fantastic food - all a stone's throw away from the beach and ever-changing sea views.

Went here for brunch with family on a Sat. A very busy place. We had pancakes, salad, waffles, Pavilion breakfast. All arrived and were well cooked and prepared. Coffee is very good here and view is outstanding. This is definitely a great place to visit. Take a walk, look at Middle Island. This is the location for the movie Oddball.... More

We were riding our bikes and decided to stop for breakfast here. Sat outside on the first floor. Great view of the sea and the breakwater and the many horses being taken for a swim. Service was good and the food and coffee very good. I had fried eggs, tomato and bacon, and my wife the avocado on toast. Two... More
