Very Pleasant Staff & Owner

On business and fancied an easy meal. Good reviews on tripadvisor so gave it a go. Not cordon bleu but very relaxing restaurant. Not very busy and maybe a bit dated but that was fine. I had the pate which was yummy and the chicken Parmesan which was very good too. The owner asked if I wanted more... read more

Have been here a good few times over the years and it's standardly good grub. The menu doesn't change much and the quality doesn't falter. If you are looking for consistency rather than anything to blow your mind then this is the place to be. English and Greek meals, good selection and reasonably priced. Always a nice atmosphere and great... More

Had an early evening dinner with my wife here, everything about the place was wonderful. First the food was delicious, we both had steaks that were cooked to perfection. The staff and manager were all very pleasant, willing to chat but not being overbearing. We had two steaks, two glases of wine, one pint of John Smiths and one dessert... More

Went for a first date with my partner and oh my god it was gorgeous. Would recommend to everyone. The other half loved his steak, my chicken was amazing too.

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
