The food quality is outstanding and it shows why they are multi award winners. Seafood cooked to perfection and sauces perfectly balanced to accompany the dish. Excellent value for money also with Tempura prawn entree $19.90 if this was Sydney it what have been close to $30 for this dish. Service was professional and attentive without been constantly in your... More

Once again we had a great meal, the best cocktails and outstanding service. We were asked by Diana our waitress if we would like to have our seafood platter for two split and served entree and main. It meant we could enjoy the hot platter while it was hot. The seafood platter is to die for and you won't be... More

Andrew and Joni I considered the Lagoon Seafood Restaurant as the best in the Illawarra and have been a frequent guest. However, I have not been visiting for about 12 months. The experience I had yesterday was a big disappointment and embarrassment for my guest from Perth. It started with the booking, for which I had a third party promotional... More

This is by far the best restaurant in Wollongong that I have come across. Amazing menu which is consistently well executed. Great range of entrees, mains, desserts and drinks. Professional and friendly staff. A little pricey but with that comes high quality products and service.

We dined here for a birthday lunch at the end of December. I have been here a number of times and have had mixed feelings in the past, but was hopeful this time would be better. The service was almost non-existent, with the entree coming out nearly a full hour after they were ordered (and with one of them missing).... More

Thought we'd visit this restaurant at the recommendation of family when we were down there visiting over Christmas. What a huge disappointment.. Firstly there was a big reduction in the menu making it look a lot like a glorified fish & chip shop but with exorbitant prices.. Wait staff were very mediocre, looked a lot like they pulled in all... More
