Location and contact

The Lagoon Restaurant is an ocean side fully licensed restaurant set in the beautiful Painted Boat Resort and Spa. We are perched upon Pender Habour with amazing views, warm and friendly atmosphere, and a great deck to watch the majestic sunsets. Our culinary offerings represent our surrounding; Sustainable and local seafood, organic produce and high quality ingredients sourced locally and throughout Canada. Our style is Mediterranean meets West Coast Canada all based on Executive Chef Steven Doucet's training and travels. Our alcohol menu is an exciting blend of British Columbia and beyond. From local breweries to beautifully crafted cocktails, Restaurant Manager Yester Mani and her team will make you feel at home and help you have one of a kind experience. From the team here at The Lagoon Restaurant, we look forward to having you join us for a wonderful evening!

There were 6 very picky eaters and every single one of us thought this meal was one of the best they have ever had. In fact, one guest wanted to ensure the chef personally received this message. You must eat here!
