Very good for a group dinner

I must commend this restaurant. Great food, well cooked. Great service. It's only just a little on the expensive side but I suppose that is what you get for a special occasion type of venue. Recommended for a group dinner. Left full and happy😊

A warm and intimate experience - the service was perfect. We ordered the fish of the day and the duck, along with vegetables and salad. Could not fault the food. I didn't want my our dishes to finish. Along with this, the pinot noir we ordered - went down a treat. Our waiters were just lovely! Made our experience a... More

We had dinner here on Feb. 13. It is a couple of stops on the tram outside of the CBD of Melbourne in Albert Park, and well worth the trip. Drinks were expertly created by the bartender, Matt, who also served as our waiter. (we were told they were missing a staff member that night, but we certainly did not... More

We had lunch here with friends and we absolutely loved it. Started off with some champagne and paired that with some wonderful seafood entree's that were to die for. Very light and absolutely delicious! We all chose different main meals and we all loved them. The wine list is small but very good with a wide range of wines from... More

We sat outside this rather lovely restaurant in the very busy and cafe packed area, yet felt rather private being in Cardigan Place looking across at the other side. The food was lovely but a little more expensive, however the service and general high quality of the food of it made up a lot for the slight 'bill shock'. I... More

We had lunch at this restuarant and opted for the lunch special which was two courses with a glass of wine for $35. We shared the poached egg entree and then each had a serve of duck confit with a wonderful sidesalad of beetroot, fetta and walnuts. I then had the dessert of warm doughnuts to myself. We both really... More

Went on a Wednesday night with a couple of friends who regularly dine there. They had raved about Lord Cardigan so naturally I was sceptical. We dine out a lot and were expecting the usual standard of a mid-market Melbourne restaurant, ie: quality Australian ingredients, nicely prepared and served by pseudo-friendly people. Our jaded approach was in for a jolt.... More

Went for simple meal and ended up paying about $62.50 pp which included a glass of alcohol, main, coffee, shared side order and shared dessert. Not your ordinary simple meal but Australia is not the cheapest place to eat out. The main is nearly $40! Wow. The service from the gentleman is great. The ambience lovely as this is not... More
