“One of the best places to eat in Colombo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

The Lagoon is certainly one of the best places in Colombo. Great professional service, lovely ambiance, and great great seafood.Although somewhat expensive compared to Sri Lankan standards, compared to similar cuisine elsewhere, the place is very reasonable.

Lagoon is easily one of the best restaurants in Colombo. Great food, service and atmosphere. It is pricey but definitely worth it.

“Sunday Brunch Seafood Buffet - very nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

The Lagoon is a very nice and open space in the Cinnamon Grand Hotel, and for Sunday Brunch they do a spectacular layout with about two dozen different types of seafood/shellfish and veggies that are hard to find elsewhere (I finally got some broccoli), and of course a beautiful and tasty dessert buffet, including various fritters (I had the pineapple fritters and added ice cream for a wonderful dessert) for a little over 2,000 rupees per person after taxes and service ($16).

“Highly recommendable!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013 via mobile

There is a reason why this restaurant is among the very highest rated in Colombo... the food is immaculate, and made to perfection. I had the pleasure of dining here twice, while I was in town - once for dinner, and another time for lunch. Both times lived completely up to my high expectations - expectatipns that are usually a very risky recipe for dissappointment. Needless to say, I was nowhere near dissappointed on both occasions.
The staff and service was as immaculate as the food.
Highly recommendable!
