Lots of options on the menu

The food was good and fresh. The chef needs to use seasoning when cooking the food even if it's just salt and pepper. We had the barracuda. It was fresh and grilled quite well but it needed a touch of seasoning before going on the grill. Prices are great

Didn't know what to expect at first but turned out to be one of the best meals of the trip. Definite contender vs Trio Penotti and a great alternative if they are booked. Started with smoked salmon app which was stellar and the rest was on par. Amazing atmosphere overlooking Lagun and cute cats.

My husband and I stopped into the Discover Diving Restaurant at Playa Lagun starved after climbing Mount Christoffel. My husband had been after a specific restaurant to get fresh fish but settled on this one given how hungry and thirsty we were...he was rather happy when we sat down, he looked at the menu and realised that this *was* the...

We stoppend for lunch and the friendly Dutch staff welcomed us. We ordered a tuna salad and a hamburger. Tuna salad was great and homemade. Hamburger was just fine. They also have a divingshop. All in all a very good place to have lunch and maybe even dinner. We'll try to visit again and would recommend anyone to grab a... More

My husband and I went to Playa Lagun and Playa Sta. Cruz to snorkel and as we drove into the Playa Lagun parking lot we noticed the signs for this restaurant. Since it was lunch time we decided to go for it and definitely was a good decision. The place has a genuine island feel. I just had a sandwich... More

Lagun is a small, sheltered beach at the end of a wonderful bay for snorkeling. Drawn onto the beach lie several fishing boats. So, after snorkeling (go there yourself, it is great!), we went into Discover Diving restaurant and ordered food. A fish (she) and fried cuts of fish (me). The fish was tough. My cuts of fish were tough,... More

On a recent trip to Curacao, my husband and I stopped at the Discover Diving Restaurant after snorkelling at Lugun Beach. We were staying at Marazul Dive Resort and a fellow guest had told us about the great ribs there. We had a lovely late afternoon drink and ordered two rib meals to go, which came with fries and salad.... More

Near beach, also dive center in same building. Easy Caribbean food and reasonable priced lunch. Food was tasty and location nice. Serving could be faster but on holiday we are not in a hurry.

Our family rented a house for two weeks in Lagun over the winter holidays and frequented the restaurant and dive shop many times. The people working the restaurant were always friendly and helpful. It was very nice that they were open on all the holidays as many places were closed. Was it 5 star dining in a posh restaurant with... More
