Really amazing food here. You choose your seafood from a great variety displayed market place style and then the way you would like it cooked and flavoured. We had mahseer flavoured with thai red curry and sri lankan spices. Both absolutely divine. The staff were attentive and very helpful in helping us choose. Also a good selection of wines.

Was not very pleased with the service of staff compared to other restaurants in Cinnamon Grand. Busy restaurant. Best food in town with a great choice. Early reservation is a must as its always full.

The options available at the Lagoon is vast. They have fresh seafood section where you can choose your seafood and cook to your liking. The desserts are really good. Don't fill your stomach too much so you have space for dessert (😀) Staff are friendly.

Me and my partner enjoyed our food here very much! One of the memorable meal I had in Sri Lanka. Another memorable meal was in the same property 8 years ago by The cinnamon hotel, they offered crab buffet, I wish something similar will be offering again July next year so I can get my chance to dip in once...

Very good choice of fish and sea food. The place is a bit noisy, sounds more like a fish market than a lagoon. Worth the visit anyway.

Simply has the best seafood dishes in the town. A little bit pricy though but worth it. The seafood is fresh and dishes are tasty.
