A really nice venue and massive menu which unfortunately lets them down. Starter orders took a while to arrive with a mistaken / wrong order on one of the Focaccia's - also the garlic was a bit of an overkill. Mains were average - steaks not particularly exciting, curries good, onion rings oily.

I have visited on a number of occasions because of the location & setting which is great. The food is average fare with average service. I will continue to visit if only for the view.

We have eaten there 4 times, having different meals every time. Food is very good. It is a welcome escape from a busy mall. Staff could do with a bit more training, but on the whole service was average to good dependant on who served you. Meals are generous and plated well. We will return.

Lovely setting, beautiful and tranquil environment and good food. That is where it ends. The personnel are so outrageously loud that this establishement may well be a theatre where they are the object, the subject and the cast. When all you hear in a restaurant be the personnel the question should arise whether the clientel are happy....I should think that... More

I have often been to Lago Puccini, both when I was a resident and now as a visitor. I have had breakfasts, lunches and dinners as well as sundowners with friends. I have never been disappointed with either the food or the service. Great place for kids to run wild as parents relax. Hubby and I highly recommend Lago Puccini... More

I must say that we went on a week night and the restaurant was not busy at all so I am not sure if this had something to do with it but the food was average to say the least. The restaurant was only half laid out so the atmosphere was almost non existent. It almost felt like we were... More

My meal which... More

Service was good.Large food portions served. The grilled chicken breasts and salad was edible. Chicken could have been warmer. My partner's hake and chips was tasty. Lovely venue with a view of the dam and gardens. Children can enjoy themselves on a jungle gym and sand pit. Lots of space for them to run around . Overall a pleasant venue.

Cooked breakfast was served cold. Soft eggs ordered and rock hard ones served. Pity as probably won't go back.
