I was eating in the restaurant for a period of 3/4 hours enjoying the view from the terrace and some of my friends temporarily left to go downstairs. Just after they left the bill was left to me even though I hadn't requested it. When my friends returned they informed me that the manager was quite rude as they went... More

We had dinner at MAUÁ, which is the Brazilian place with Lagoon. The food was really interesting, and excellent quality. Very unique tastes, and from the Brazilian friend that I was with - I believe authentic. Service a bit sloppy, but OK. The view isn't as good as the restaurants at the front (on the water), but the food made... More

The restaurant is well known and is on a great spot in front of the lake. It is big and have some good dishes for sure including good meat dishes which we had chosen. The waiters are very busy and it's difficult to get their attention and it does not seemed they care if we feel well or not, so... More

We came here for the view, to have a drink and look out over the lake. During Christmas time there is a nicely lit up tree at night. We looked at the menu and thought it a bit pricey, but decided we were paying for the view and we would give it a shot. The food ended up being quite... More

Had dinner on a tuesdayevening in october. Restaurants inside not full but terrace well occupied. We ordered food from two different restaurants but both dishes came after 10 minutes which we believe is too quick if it is freshly prepared. Taste of dishes has been moderate and we ordered creamy spinash which has been too creamy that it could be... More

Food was ok, but price is too high. Toilets were very dirty and with bad smell which created a bad impression for such a fancy place.

The Lagoon appears to be a nice restaurant but unfortunately our experience was somewhat disappointing. We ordered our drinks and food. After enjoying our starter (and oddly our side of fries) we then waited an hour for the main to come but alas it never arrived. It would appear the waiter only decided to take down part of our order.... More

I went there last night for the first time with some friends and my expectations were not met. My friends had been there before and said that now the 4 restaurants, which used to have different sections on the menu, were now all part of one menu. Better? No. Now you do not know which restaurant will be cooking your... More

This is a place that you can order you food from different restaurants at the same time, since the share the menu this increases the options. The restaurant offers an amazing view of the lagoon and at night with a clear sky it can be very romantic. You can sit on the balcony or inside on some amazing tables made... More
