Unfortunately,this restaurant is one we only visit once a year as we live in Essex, and only go when we visit friends in Darlington. It is always number one on our list of places to eat with friends and family. They always remember us and the food is Greek /Cypriot and very authentic. The family, all Greek/ Cypriots, run the...

Surprised by the excellent food and service. Didn't think we could get a table by the amount of people already in the restaurant. Staff couldn't do enough for you. My mother was even pleased by the food- she is the fussiest eater I know! All round v good

Found the Blue Lagoon by accident in 1996 and have been a regular visitor ever since. The family are lovely people and the staff are great. If you want good quality food at a reasonable price in a friendly atmosphere this is the place for you.

We have visited this family run restaurant many times, the food and service are second to none. The family are very welcoming and treat you as old friends. We will definitely be returning again on our next trip to Darlington.

I love this restaurant. Eat here fairly regularly with my husband and 3 year old. Now this is NOT a modern or fancy restaurant! What you see is what you get! And if you want a honest well cooked old fashioned meal at a reasonable price - This is what you will get! The staff are super friendly the food... More

We went to the Blue Lagoon for a late night dinner, what a lovely restaurant. We were welcomed and seated at the table by a friendly waitress who brought us menus over quickly. I had the garlic mushrooms to start with and the chicken parmesan for my main course. Both courses were served quickly and hot. The mushrooms were tasty... More

The Blue Lagoon is a famous haunt in Darlington. The menu remains simple and classical, largely unaltered in decades - but if you've struck a good formula, why change it? People know what to expect here, and that is why it is a success. You won't find many other traditional family-run restaurants around like it any more, and that's a... More
