Beautiful Dinner, Excellent Service - as always

We turned up a little late and the restaurant was super busy. We were offered a cocktail/drink while we waited for our table to be reset and were seated outside, which was gorgeous. On a beautiful night, it would be lovely to sit outside, but it was a little cool. We opted for a cocktail while... read more

Beautiful menu, excellent execution, impeccable service.... What more could one ask for on Christmas Day? The 5 course menu was well balanced, very well presented and tasted amazing.

We had a very enjoyable dinner in this fine small restaurant. We started with cocktails selected from a rather interesting menu of unusual combinations. The food menu does not have many items but everything we tried from the mains and desserts was enjoyable. Service was quiet and efficient and added to the experience. Overall and very good night. Quite expensive... More

We absolutely love this place. We go there with friends nearly every month for the fantastic degustation dinners and always have a wonderful time. The food is fabulous - imaginative, subtle and well thought out. Dominique and her team always make us feel very much at home. With so much competition in Albert Park it is hard for a restaurant...

This restaurant was a big surprise. The owner (Irish) is front of house and looked after us really well. The food was beautifully presented and every dish was delightful an full of flavour.

An excellent and convenient location just off Bridport Street in South Melbourne. The Lord Cardigan is a fairly small but intimate restaurant which is ideal for couples or small groups. The service and attention is first class as is the wine list and food. The steaks alone are worth the visit.

Went here recently for my birthday under the recommendation of a friend. The food is interesting and delicious and the service is really good. They served my dessert with a birthday candle in it... Nice touch. Well worth a visit, you won't be disappointed.

Dined here on a cold Melbourne winters week day. There was only two local businessmen dining here with us and with the room almost empty we found it fairly cold to start with although it did start to warm up later. We chose the lunch special with two courses for $40 per person including a glass of wine. Water was... More

Six of us dined here today for a family lunch. We could not fault the setting, food, service or value. The wait staff were particularly pleasant, indeed the whole experience was one we will return for. Just great!
