“Great location, good food and great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2013

First time in a very time since i have been to Lagoon. Really put off for a long time by ex-Lord mayor who brought the city in disrepute.
Anyway, the location is fantastic, the service was also great (but they forgot to re-fill our water glasses), and food was good bit not great. Fish was slightly dry, oysters not as succulent as places like Tassie. Overall a good experience. Music from engagement party very loud when we arrived but slowly got better. Might go back, but might not.

“Great seafood, even better views!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2013

I had the pleasure of dining at the restaurant midweek. Our group had pre drinks in the bar and the selection of beers on tap was impressive. We were seated by an extremely genial person (could have been the maitre'd or manager), who was attentive throughout the night.

Whilst the views are the main star, the food is just as impressive. My non seafood entree of grilled haloumi was great, however the touted accompanying asparugus was just a couple of spears short. No complaints about the cheese though, plentiful and the balsamic honey sauce very moreish

I had the grilled Moreton bay bugs for main course and they were absolutely delicious!! I recommend the trio of ginger, chilli and garlic sauce.

My dining companions were equally impressed, ordering entrées of octopus and bugs as well.

Given how full we were from the mains, desert was going to be a stretch, however the decision to order the honey wafers and trifle paid off.

Whilst some reviews point to the service being off, and its entirely possible, our night had nothing but positives. From the wine recommendation (spot on), ordering, and drinks the staff were certainly thorough and pleasant.

We'll be back soon.

Selection fantastic, quality excellent, simply could not finish it. Will certainly be back here again!

“Good platter”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 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.
