Plantation Bar & Restaurant
Ranked #3 of 25 Restaurants in Agnes Water
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$6 - US$28
Description: Plantation Bar & Restaurant at Lagoons 1770 Resort and Spa is most fortunate to be located on the Southern Great Barrier Reef, perfect for the production of the freshest fruit and vegetables. We use locally sourced seafood and grass fed meats wherever possible to bring you an innovative, modern Australian dining experience overlooking the lagoon pool. Neat, casual attire is to be worn at all times whilst singlets and board shorts are not acceptable. Due to our somewhat remote, regional location we operate with a small team of Chef's and our menu reflects this in its limited offerings. We are unable to cater for all dietary requirements such as Vegan or strict gluten free diets so please keep this in mind. During our high season periods we only offer a table d'hote menu as this is the only way we can effectively meet the service demand for such a small restaurant. Closed for dinner service Monday evenings only.

Mum and I only had breakfast here. Everything was always lovely and fresh and had just about anything you could ask for, for a breakfast. Staff very accommodating and very friendly.

We did not stay in the accommodation.
We were 3 local persons for lunch last Wednesday. We ordered steak sandwich, fish and chips and salt pepper calamari. Each of the 3 meals were good value, delicious and well presented. The pool beside the open restaurant adds a great ambiance. I would say this venue is excellent for both family meals and relaxed business lunch and dinner. We will be back and recommend Lagoons restaurant to other locals too.

On this current road trip we have eaten out, 3 times a day and are disappointed by the sameness of food eaten. Queenslanders seem to love beef cheeks, steak, deep fried fish and lots of battered chips. We chose to eat here as we had had a long day. The bar has no sit up area which is a pity. The main room is a bit soulless, as too is the 6 table outdoor area. Needs more foliage to create a tropical feel.
The surprise was the well crafted food from a short menu. It was the best we had had on the trip. The salt and pepper calamari tasted of the sea and was tender. A triumph. To follow, we chose a steak and the crispy pork belly. My wife said her steak was 10/10. My pork belly was full of flavour, moist with an Asian slaw and coconut rice. The wine list was again a nice surprise. I have to comment 're the fact our mains were accidentally given to a neighbouring table. Just 2 of 4 dishes needed reversing, my choice had to be redone. No issue. These things can happen. Our waitress/waitperson looked mortified and apologised 2 or 3 times. But it was fine. Well handled. Professional. We all laughed it off. I hope the chef took it as just one of those things.
