Wonderful experience at the Lagoon. Great selection of fresh seafood and excellent cooking. Try to book in advance since it gets busy.

“Great Sea Food”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

As a vegetarian, this restaurant did not hold much interest for me. My host however suggested that they do have good options for veggies. We tried our the Thai Curry and Stir Fried vegetables and they were quite good. My host of course enjoyed the sea food and recommends the restaurant to all sea food lovers.

“How to make good fish taste boring (and make you pay lot of money for it)”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

I took my family to eat here with big expectations, as we are all fish lovers, and after spending so much time in selecting fish and sea food, after it was cooked it all tasted the same. They only have few options to cook the fish and all ends up tasting the same. We were 6 of us and all left disappointed and with much lighter wallets :-(. I am in Colombo every month for business and never set foot in this restaurant again. Much better Beach Wadiya inMarine Drive or the Beach Hut at Mount Lavinia.

“like a factory”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

busy restaurant with a basic concept of a variety of seafood on ice and you choose the sauce you want with it.
fresh seafood but expensive, and no guarantee you are served what you have chosen.
not friendly, maybe due that it was busy.
