For a Special Occasion

The atmosphere is relaxed but formal and the food and service is good. If you have a special occasion it is probably the best place in Wollongong to visit.

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...

This was not a great place for a couple because it's crowded,loud and busy.The food was a bit hit and miss and definitely wasn't worth the price tag. The service was efficient and friendly.

On a recent trip to Wollongong, we visited the Lagoon for some fresh seafood. My wife and I are originally from the area and first went to the (original version of) restaurant 30 years ago. The new incarnation is more modern, larger but not good version. Service was extremely slow, wine list was average at best (with some showcase wines... More

Went here in June with some friends. Two of us ordered the HUGE seafood platter. The food was fresh with most of it being sourced locally (I believe)... other decided on the steak and vege option. Again, fresh and well cooked/presented. The atmosphere was great and very welcoming. We went at night but would recommend a lunch to soak up... More

I brought my parents here for dad's birthday. The staff were friendly and patient and were able to make my parents feel at ease. My folks never go out so are not familiar with how restaurants work ie: how to order. Food items and how to pay. The staff were very helpful and able to spend time explaining and making... More

We can here for a very special wedding anniversary. It was a Sunday lunch. Whilst the staff were attentive initially once it got busier we were forgotten. I had to keep looking for our waitress to get more drinks. Our mains took 1 and 1/2 hours which I think is not a reasonable time frame. The food was just ok.... More

Came here for the "round the world" degustation. 11 courses that were amazing. Only one was a little bit too weird (bloody mary cocktail that was celery flavoured with tabasco pearls). Just couldn't quite get into it. Everything else was amazing and inspired. A lot of variety and left me feeling full but not too full! would recommend trying it!

We came here on a Friday for lunch to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The setting was lovely, right by the beach and it would be great to sit outside on a summer's day. We had the seafood platter which was really good. It was a bit on the pricey side at $165 but it did have a whole lobster mornay,... More
