I dined at The Lagoon twice last weekend, once at a wedding reception and then to celebrate my fathers 80th birthday. Wedding reception - the atmosphere, food and service were wonderful - it was much better than the usual beef or chicken option and the presentation was amazing. The serving sizes were fabulous and the quality wonderful. Sunday lunch- we... More

The seafood platter for 2 was great food, but not great value; as the seafood didn't seem fresh, especially the oysters. Everything seemed frozen. In saying that, we enjoyed the enormity of the dish but it could have been tastier. The wait staff were too relaxed, leaving us to refill our own wine and stack our dirty plates and ask... More

We were invited as part of a 60th Birthday Party and found ourselves at the Lagoon on a Monday for lunch. We had some reservations about the restaurant following a very poor dining experience here a few years earlier. (We had not returned since.) On arrival our party were allocated the best table facing the Lagoon. We were also allowed... More

My wife and I dined here in August this year after stumbling upon it by accident. This is the best seafood restaurant we have ever been to. What a night. The staff were terrific, as was the service. The American waitress we had, was an angel. The meals, including entrees were just sensational. The best seafood. It does cost more... More

We went to the Lagoon on Sunday for my Mum's 75th birthday. This is the third time I have been to the restaurant. The location is beautiful and the food was again of a high standard. All nine of us thoroughly enjoyed all of the meals. The service was exceptional. It was unobtrusive, professional, thoughtful, educated and timely. What stood... More

What's not to like about the lagoon, we went to a function last week and the service and food was great. A glass was smashed in our area and it was no trouble for the staff to clean it out of our way. Beautiful location to match.

We saw the winter lunch special advertised for $39.50, 3 course meal and thought that it would be small and not particularly good. On the contrary, it was the best $39.50 spent. The food was delicious and service prompt and fantastic. I'd definitely recommend this place and this deal to everyone.

Tyrone served us on Saturday night - he was the perfect waiter - nothing was a problem - quick service - my favourite restaurant lived up to its reputation. I contacted the restaurant and praised Tyrone's service. Can't wait to go back

Our family had been visiting this restaurant for years and would always take friends from out of town and recommend it to others. The last time we went was for my Mum's birthday. Lobster Mornay is her favourite and being that she has Celiac Disease (cannot have gluten) she called weeks before and asked the chef if they could do... More
