    Premier Seafood Restaurant

    Welcome to Wollongong’s Premier Seafood Restaurant!

    The Lagoon has been the Winner of Restaurant Awards since 1986 and is now in the Hall of Fame… In 2009 & 2010 the Lagoon won the very prestigious Lifestyle Food Award for Australia’s Best Seafood Restaurant!

    We would like to welcome you to our restaurant and assure you that the seafood you are about to enjoy is of the freshest quality, mostly caught locally, brought daily from the markets or flown in from interstate.  

    The success of our style of cooking depends on the very best ingredients being treated in the simplest way to enhance their natural flavours. The meals are prepared to order “a la minute”, nothing is pre cooked, please allow a little time so that our qualified chefs can ensure your meal is prepared with expertise and care.  

    If at any time we are unable to serve you an item which appears on the menu, it is only because it wasn’t available fresh on the day. For instance, at certain times of the year, newly moulted crabs or lobsters are best left alone… their meat being less developed and watery.

    We hope you enjoy our food and hospitality.  Thank you for dining with us.

    Your Host, Andrew Harrison

    Lagoon Restaurant History

    The Lagoon Restaurant was first established in 1986. The Lagoon Restaurant was the first in Wollongong to develop outdoor café style seating. It was also the first restaurant in Wollongong to introduce a genuine seafood menu, introducing delicacies such as tiger prawns, Western Australian scampi & Morton Bay bugs.

    The restaurant achieved excellence in the hospitality industry and a reputation for high quality food and service using the freshest of ingredients. The restaurant gained a reputation of being equal to the front ranking restaurants of Sydney. It was the winner of many industry awards and including being the winner on six occasions as American Express ‘Best Restaurant of the Year’ and twice being inducted into the “Hall of Fame”. It won the Restaurant and Catering Association’s Award for being the best Restaurant Cater for Wedding Reception, And 2006 Tourism Wollongong’s Tourism Restaurant of the Year.

    Unfortunately the restaurant was destroyed by fire in 2001 and did not re-open for business until September 2004. The new restaurant featured an Australiana theme with wide balconies lined with colonnades, wide open doors and creamed coloured walls characterising the sandy beach that the restaurant was built on. The restaurant took advantage of every aspect of the beauty and splendour of the surrounding environment with its large windows and open air seating. The new building and layout had been designed to be able to compete with the very best. The new restaurant can cater for 300 people, but can also be easily divided into smaller dining rooms. It also features a popular New York style lounge.

    The Lagoon Restaurant is the largest non-chain restaurant in the Illawarra. The decision to rebuild was based on the proprietors’ confidence in Wollongong’s future growth and development and their passion for the region. In less than three years, the Lagoon Restaurant has once again become Wollongong’s premier restaurant.

  • A bit of class in the Gong

    • Currently 4/5 Stars.
    4.0/5 Stars

    Set a little away from town overlooking the lagoon and beach, Lagoon Seafood Restaurant is a bit of posh in the Gong. Packed the night I was there, we were lucky to get a table. Attentive but not overbearing service, great fresh seafood and nicely balanced cool white and warm decor.
