Had the 9 course tasting menu. Food and service were fabulous, and this restaurant absolutely deserves its Michelin One Star status, and in truth, I found it on par and/or superior to several 2 stars I've visited. Plan to budget about 200 CHF per person, and that's without wine.

I booked dinner for 5 for my 30th birthday and could not have made a better choice. We got the 9-course Menu Harmonie with Swiss wine pairings. A couple of us had dietary restrictions and the staff acknowledged this and offered excellent alternatives with a smile. I was offered a pretty little cushioned stand for my bag, and the team at Pavillon made me a nice surprise for my birthday.

I love the purple accents and I noticed the drinks and food complemented the decor with their colours, although this may be unintentional - I'm just really into colours. I also really appreciated that the atmosphere was unpretentious and we could relax and laugh and just enjoy great food and ask many questions if we had them, without feeling like we'd asked too much :)

I had been wary of booking somewhere completely new, not wanting to risk being disappointed. I left feeling like I couldn't have chosen better. Thank you, thank you, thank you for a memorable evening none of us will ever forget!

Went to Pavillon for a romantic dinner. The service was outstanding. Wine list extensive, we followed the sommelier recommendation. Menu was complete and diversified with top quality ingredients.

I had mango homemade ice cream for dessert, simple yet delicious.

Pricey but worth every dollar!

A romantic dinner always starts with a great wine - we are happy that our Sommelier was able to select the right one for you and your partner.

Of course the ending of the dinner has to be sweet as well – glad you enjoyed one of our homemade ice cream.

Visited Pavillon for our anniversary dinner and had a fantastic time. The very friendly and attentive staff did its best to make us feel welcome and at home.
We opted for the small tasting menu which was excellent (7courses). Since we didn't want too much wine we opted for champagne by the glass where we got a very good recommendation.

All in all a successful evening and amongst several, so far clearly the best Michelin-awarded restaurant in Zurich we have been to. Great price-performance on a very high level!

It is a very impressive place to go. The service is impeccable. The food is marvelous. The environment is unforgettable. It is a good place to go for celebrating for different events. If you love food, you must choose here. We are very appreciated about the service. When we checked out, the weather turned bad in heavy pouring with thunders and lightnings. We parked our car two blocks away, and we didn't have an umbrella. When we didn't know what to do, unexpectedly, the manager came out and brought us an umbrella. He is such a caring person to his customers.
