A 3-hour perfect lunch in the Pavillon Restaurant with two business associates on a day visit to Zurich. This is not the place if you want a lively atmosphere - there were only 8 other diners - but you're not rushed, you can hear each other talk and the atmosphere is one of total calmness. Beautiful displays of flowers, too.
The service is as you would expect. I arrived slightly before the others and was made to feel very welcome by a young waiter who engaged me in light-hearted conversation about shopping - oh - and I just loved the little stand that was brought for me to put my handbag on so that I didn't have to leave it on the floor - magic!
Food was beautifully presented - chilled asparagus starter, turbot main course, raspberry tart for desert - light and fresh. We were helped to choose a local red wine wihich had an interesting flavour.
Lunch isn't exactly cheap and I believe that dinner is astronomical - somewhere to eat when on expenses!More
