Lagoon Seafood Restaurant is already enjoying the benefits of being named Australia's favourite restaurant in the nation's biggest people's choice restaurant awards.
After being named the overall winner of Foxtel's LifeStyle Food Channel's I Love Food Awards the week before last, Andrew Harrison and Jonni Nicolaou said they had received messages from all over Australia.
And that is expected to continue later this month when the episode filmed last Friday by a crew from the LifeStyle Food Channel airs.
Mr Harrison said the news had not only gone viral but he already had one customer get an interesting response when he had travelled to Perth recently, hopped in a taxi and asked where the best seafood restaurant was.
When the driver asked where has was from he said "Wollongong".
To which the reply was: "Why are you over here then? You have got the best seafood restaurant in Australia in Wollongong."
