Dropped in to the Lagoon for lunch. As usual the restaurant was crowded and quite busy. We ordered cattle fish in tamarin sauce and egg fried rice plus some other dishes and the food was great. The time to serve was a bit too long for our liking but nonetheless the taste compensated for that slight issue. The orange juice was very fresh as well.
