“Good platter”
Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

Had the seafood platter and was impressed, place needs a makeover though as it seems a little aged.

Good Sunday location over looking the lagoon.

“Great food but poor service”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

I used to love this restaurant however last time I went for the mother-in laws bday a few months ago I was very dissapointed. The food was great but the service (it was a sunday evening) was poor. When we first arrived one of the chairs was broken, this was replaced and we then were left a short while before our drink order was taken. We were then left ages before our meal order was taken. It was not busy at all and there were a lot of staff working.

We ordered breads for the entrees but they did not arrive, after about 40-50 minutes our meals arrived. We advised the waitress to forget about the breads but were not impressed.

The meals were good. The staff did come and ask two members of the table who ordered a seafood platter for 2 costing about $170! They did not ask the rest of us. We finished our bottle of wine and waited a while but nobody came to take another drink order. We therefore called a waitress over to take the order.

Given the expensive prices we expected better service. I find this a good restaurant on a saturday night or during lunch times however would never go on a sunday again.

“It doesn't get any better than this!”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

I am the executive officer of a local industry group - i3net and we have held numerous functions throughout the region. I have found the assistance and thoroughness of the staff of The Lagoon and Seacliff Restaurants highly professional and ensure my events are seamless to those attending. The food, the location and of course great company makes this the place to be. We have also held more intimate luncheons and again nothing changes (fantastic). Big or small they cater for all!

“Nice location, great food, friendly service”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

This restaurant, located in pretty Wollongong seaside, is elegant without being oppressive, the staff is at the ready and attentive
I recommmend the fresh oysters, the John Dory fish and their house Cabernet Sauvignon
Foreigner will find the tab a little salty, as it is customary in good restaurants in Australia, but it is worth it.

“Wow - what a view”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

I often eat at The Lagoon when visiting Wollongong for business. The service is really professional and friendly too. Seafood always excellent. The sea view, beach etc., is really spectacular. The Lagoon is certainly one of the best places for lunch/dinner in Wollongong.
