It’s hard to fault a restaurant with a great menu, superb staff (and free parking!).

The Pavillion has repeatedly delivered in all areas and the guests I bring are, without exception, impressed by the vibrant and youthful atmosphere, choice of menu, and friendly knowledgable staff.

Special credit to Abdul, Katie and Klaudia. Never flustered no matter how busy the restaurant is and always a smile.

Great place. Highly recommended!!!

Just back from lunch and I have to say the service was out of this world.
Big shout out to Klaudia and Katie especially, you are lucky to have such wonderful staff, they really go above and beyond there role to make your experience in the Pav unforgettable. Best staff ever :) some people are even going as far as calling them legends and I couldn't possibly disagree :)

Often use this restaurant when at training courses and always find the food to be of high standards and tasty, staff can be under pressure at times and thus may come across as 'not the most friendly' but I take that with a pinch of salt- literally!

The serving staff were friendly and efficient but the food was awful - obviously reheated & carelessly microwaved.

The pavilion is nothing short of an absolute top notch restaurant/bar, ran by some extremely professional down to earth people. On the grounds of the University of Limerick, the Pav boasts a popular reputation for a nice & tasty bite to eat, or even just a nice cold drink. The interior is pretty cool and has a kind of hotel feel for it, whilst being kept immaculately tidy. Ciaran, the assistant manager is a personal friend, but regardless of friendship, this man is an absolute gentlemen & extremely good at what he does. To put it simply, the lad just knows how to treat people. All other staff are an absolute pleasure to deal with and know how to have a laugh which brings a bit of casual nature to a high class establishment which is always good (balance is key boys) Well done to the overall manager of this restaurant, you are doing a great job.

Finally, the food is amazing, Mr chef.. you got skills brother!!

I write a poem for every review, so here is my pavilion one:

Pavilion, pavilion, you are one in a million, you make tasty food, go on boys your winning. Your windows are shined, & your floors really clean, never a speck of dust, nor a spilt coffee been. Yer service is great & yer pints are pure class, ideal to stop by after Sunday night mass!

Guwandalads!! Keep it up. I give this restaurant a definite & well deserved, FULL 10 Willie O'Dea tashers out of 10 x
