We really enjoyed the experience at this restaurant. The food was good, especially the sea food that they grilled by the side of the open concept eating area and the informal nature of the cook and the server that was there. We got up and had a nice chat with the cook as he grilled the fish that we ordered.... More

We stayed at the Lagoon Ocean resort one bedroom. This place is walking distance from the resort. We ordered take out ribs and they were very tender and tasty. The chef was very accommodating cooking for us considering they were about to close. Not open everyday, so try to take advantage of the days they are open. The prices were... More

Its the restaurant associated with the dive shop at Playa Lagun. (Well, to be precise, its across the parking lot from Playa Lagun) The chef is surprisingly good (and accommodating) - and does surprisingly good fish specials (which are what you basically get - whatever they brought in that day, is whats being cooked). The bitterballen, however, are *great* -... More

Its part of the dive shop that is next to the parking lot of Lagun beach. It has a lot of options in the menu to choose from apart from the daily speciality. Apart from this they do a fish BBQ I believe on Wednesdays (a must) and also a meat BBQ on Saturdays from 5-8pm Would check it out... More

The food was good and fresh. The chef needs to use seasoning when cooking the food even if it's just salt and pepper. We had the barracuda. It was fresh and grilled quite well but it needed a touch of seasoning before going on the grill. Prices are great

Didn't know what to expect at first but turned out to be one of the best meals of the trip. Definite contender vs Trio Penotti and a great alternative if they are booked. Started with smoked salmon app which was stellar and the rest was on par. Amazing atmosphere overlooking Lagun and cute cats.

My husband and I stopped into the Discover Diving Restaurant at Playa Lagun starved after climbing Mount Christoffel. My husband had been after a specific restaurant to get fresh fish but settled on this one given how hungry and thirsty we were...he was rather happy when we sat down, he looked at the menu and realised that this *was* the...
