We started with pre dinner drinks outside on the terraced area,which was very pleasant. The menu selection was extensive and with a table of nine we tried many dishes. All meals had nice presentation, and were scrumptious. Service was efficient with menu selections explained well by the wait staff. We all had a very enjoyable experience and would definitely return... More

Dinner with friends visiting the area. Left completely embarrassed at our choice of a usually very lovely restaurant. It was so noisy and packed with everyone jammed in with very little room to move around the tables. After being shown to our table,we then had to ask 3 different wait staff for menus, table water, drinks order. Half an hour... More

I was immediately impressed with the location and venue. It was a busy night with a very large function in another room. Table service was attentive, efficient and polite, as first-up we were more interested in catching up than ordering. Once we finally moved to the menu, the selection catered for a wide range of tastes with seafood being the... More

My wife and I dined here on a Monday night recently. Although the place was very busy, the service was very good. The seafood was fresh and well prepared, but the best bit was the desserts, simply amazing.The wine list is extensive as well.

We were first time visitors to the lagoon - had read the reviews online and it wasn't disappointing ! Ordered a seafood platter to share and couldn't finish it. Beautiful selection of cooked and fresh seafood without having a heap of deep fried fish and chips on it. Didn't order any other entree or dessert - we wouldn't have been... More

Of all the restaurants this amazing city has to offer,.. this one by far has the worse customer service. Be prepared to get absolutely 'shafted' in the cost by staff, and be spoken to disgustingly by the Manager. When several customers ordering a meal recently, a price was checked not once, but three times by the different customers standing in... More

My husband and I dined here with our friends from Overseas. Our seating was good and soon we ordered. Our meals were great and tasty...our compliments to the chef. We had the Baramundi and prawns and a different selection of entrees and desserts...all delicious. Once the main meal was finished it was a long time before we had our dishes... More

My husband and I dined here while on a quick getaway out of Sydney for the new year and the seafood was to die for!! We had the platter, absolutely amazing! Everything was fresh, flavoursome and it was good value for money! Service was friendly too, everyone was very friendly actually! It's the only seafood restaurant I recommend to anyone.

Thank Brooke A
