Safe but not Spectacular Dining

Have had several business meals at the Lagoon. Food is good but I would not put it in the outstanding class. Everyone will have a pleasant meal. Service is excellent. Business numbers have varied from five to fourteen or so. Location is excellent, particularly impressive to visitors.

have dined here about 6 times over the last 15-ish years, the last being for Mother's Day lunch. Set menu or seafood platter. Every time I have dined it has been a 'pleasant' experience, but definitely far from memorable or anything to rave about. At Mother's day lunch, the seafood platter had items that should be warm, but came out... More

The Lagoon seafood restaurant has to the the best local seafood dining experience by far. We had a group booking for 16 and the service we got from our waitress Tegan was outstanding. She was very courteous and attentive and got everybody's order correct. Tegan went out of her way to make our night one that was memorable and one... More

We were visiting Wollongong and our friends who are well known locals suggested we meet the for lunch at the Lagoon. We all decided to order from the set menu as there were many choices in each course. We, the visitors were delightfully surprised. The quality of the seafood and presentation was excellent. We are former owners of a seafood... More

Great food. Love the sauces you can add to BBQ Prawns or Lobster. Excellent Seafood platter - right amount to fill you up, but no chips (which seems to be part of most platters - if you want them, order them as a side).

I've had both business as well as romantic dinners at this restaurant. I highly recommend it. The seafood platter for two is amazing. The location is gorgeous and the staff go out of their way to make sure everything is to your satisfaction. Personally, I find it a tad pricey... but worth it for special occasions. However, I find their... More

Beautiful setting overlooking lagoon and peaceful beach. The table is generously sized and chairs comfortable. Venue is spacious. The food is fabulous- every dish we have tried is superb- entrees, mains and desserts, fresh seasonal ingredients featuring seafood but also vegetarian and meat dishes- all beautifully presented. The staff are friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable. Wines are well chosen to accompany... More

I took my wife, mother-in-law and two daughters to Mothers' Day dinner. The food was superb, the service fast, efficient and friendly and the atmosphere delightful. Three course meal and wine served and eaten within 75 minutes. Just fantastic.
