Great Birthday

We were a group of 8 celebrating a very special friend's birthday. Most of the group chose the lunchtime special which was a very reasonable price. However, we and the birthday girl chose The Seafood Platter. The food was sensational and plentiful for 3 people. We really liked that it was fresh... read more

Went here for dinner while visiting wollongong; not only was it the best seafood i have ever eaten out, but the staff were so ridiculously helpful and accommodating it was phenomenal. I'm someone with a large number of food intolerences and find eating out difficult and at times stressful. The staff/chefs here were not at all phased by my questions... More

The food was delicious and the staff were great. No complaints would highly recommend even just for that special date night. We will return

I dined here for lunch yesterday with my parents and was told that this was the best restaurant in Wollongong. Overall it was quite pleasant, however; I think it missed the mark. We got soup and calamari for starters, everyone was impressed with the soup and my salt and pepper calamari was awesome, in fact it was some of the... More

Recently went here again for a family birthday lunch on a Sunday, Well forget parking close to the restaurant, Had to park all the way up near the Novotel, granted it was a lovely winters day and the parks and picnics were in full swing, However surely Lagoon has to do something about it, as it was topic of conversation...

This is the go to place in Wollongong for special occasions. Service was friendly but professional, food was generous in proportion and delicious. We did not order dessert but as it was a special occasion (the waitress had asked earlier) a plate with yummy chocolate brownie morsels and strawberries appeared with 'Happy Birthday' written on the plate, a lovely touch....

We called up on a Saturday night for a table of four and they had one for us within half an hour. We arrived and our table was really nicely located near the bar and not in the way of anything. As we ordered our food one of our party was unsure of what to drink with her main so... More

Best seafood we ever had especially the Balmain bugs and oysters. The sauces on the rice was soooo good and the fish so tender. Overall fantastic food. Only criticism about the restaurant is that they didn't serve the grog quick enough.

A long time favourite restaurant..... perfect view. .. great location. .. attended for combined family birthday. .. food excellent. .. service as usual exemplary. .. however a lack of designated parking at this venue left family members walking 1km + to find a park. .. for a restaurant with such high standards I'm suprised that they don't have their own...
