Laguna diners can enjoy indoor seating or al fresco seating on the large deck overlooking a Zen-like tropical garden with lush landscaping and large coy pond.

Tuesday night is “Caribbean Night,” where diners can sample many of the region’s traditional dishes like local beef stoba, locally-caught fresh snapper in Creole sauce, and Dutch-inspired keshi yena. Wednesday is for Italian food lovers, with a chef-attended pasta station offering choices of different pastas and sauces, roasted leg of lamb, mushroom risotto, lasagna, and chicken with tomato and olive relish.
