I grew up local and decided to go for a fine dining lunch at the lagoon however I was so disappointed at the low level of service, run down decor and very average food that would be acceptable as a pub meal. Definitelynot the same place it used to be. Firstly the wait staff have absolutely no knowledge or skill.... More

What a disappointing experience. We had an early booking at 5pm and they clearly weren't ready for us. The restaurant had a smell like wet carpet all the way through it. Wait staff are kids with no knowledge of seafood or fine dining. The drinks waiter poured the red wine like it was an rsl club in an rsl glass.... More

Not much atmosphere, it's basically just a big room and if you don't have a table overlooking the view it's pretty mediocre. No background music. Tired carpet and furniture. Staff are very friendly but in general don't seem as though they have had much training Our platter was $170 and I've paid the same else where and it's been much... More

for the seafood lover, but bring a spare wallet. minutes from a beautiful lagoon hence the name. all the fare the ocean can offer and extensive wine list . class inside easy going outside. before you meal you may want to sky dive and after take a walk by the water. a great experience for you tummy.

We had a wonderful dinner with the seafood platter being their specialty. It was perfect and we really enjoyed it. We then shared the Chocolate Caramel Peanut Bombe for dessert. The customer service was faultless and thanks to our waitress Jewelle and the other staff for a memorable anniversary dinner.

Looked at the menu in advance and really looked forward to dining here. But what a letdown Partner chose the cold seafood platter. No finger bowl, no bowl for claws and other waste and no implement to crack open the claws. In the end it didn't matter because the food was ordinary anyhow. I had grilled fish. Again it was...

My partner and I went there once for lunch. My partner had a $25 greek salad with 2 prawns and I had an overcooked salmon with 1 and a half potato for $40. This is what we think: 1. This place has absolutely no style and feels like an RSL (check out the carpet, the bad lighting and atmosphere) 2.... More

The Lagoon offers a great variety of fresh food and quality service in a premium venue! The staff were very professional and friendly, the food was well presented and balanced with a nice combination of flavours. We also met one of the owners who is also the marketing manager, she is a bit of a stunner!

Thank Patrick D
