Lagoon Dining is a beautifully designed experience. It's one of those places you can go for a relaxed meal or for a more special occasion such as an anniversary etc. The words I would use are 'effortless perfection'. It's laid-back but simultaneously glamorous. And the food was INCREDIBLE!

We really enjoyed our meal, going for the feedme option in which they accommodated our pescatarian request very well. Service was excellent, and sitting outside worked well in the spring evening. I really enjoy lagoon dining, and relied on their burgers during lockdown. Very happy to spend some time there with the team

We were seated outside with overhead heating on a cool evening and it was quite comfortable. We had the ‘feed me’ menu and each dish was excellent. My favourite was the beef tartare with ‘Chinese donut’.

Lagoon Dining offers a fabulous, if small menu of delicious food.
Most unusual and all delicious.
Given the current COVID-19 restrictions the staff handled the spacing, cleaning etc really well.

It’s hard for Thai food to stand out in Melbourne, but Lagoon managed to capture that sixth taste-memory. Chefs couldn’t put a foot wrong - perhaps as we were left a little peckish in the time between bites! Understandable as we ease back into dining after a long time out. The feed me is perfect for a date, less so for larger or hungrier parties. Great cocktails and cool interiors

Best dining experience I've had in a long time. Excellent menu with great options, but not overwhelmingly long. My vegan companion was really well catered for as well.
Some of the most interesting food in Melbourne at the moment. Really innovative and refreshing.

Fantastic and personable service. Great drinks list. Open kitchen. Well priced. Cannot fault this place. Can't wait for an excuse to go back.

Lagoon Dining is superb. Chris, Ned, and Keat are all superb, it is definitely one of our favourite places to eat. Nothing is ever too much, they always make you feel welcome, and at this time given the current social restrictions have got an excellent take-away menu as well. For us the popcorn chicken, char siu pork, and the malt parfait are all time favourites.
