Really great dining experience. You must go there! The staff are lovely and the food is awesome. Both my husband and I had steak and I had the pepper sauce with mine and it is the best pepper sauce I have ever had. Not too hot and so creamy. Just the best. Served with chips and salad it was just... More

When you arrive at Cardens you must walk up quite a few stairs, and the furniture is average to say the least, however, you go back for the steak, it is good, and one of the places that you return to time and time again.

Visited this restaurant last week for dinner on the occasion of my wife's birthday. We had frequented this restaurant in the past but not for some time. We came away completely satisfied not only with the best service enjoyed in a long time but also with the quality of the food and the prices. Being a lover of spicy food,... More

We went to Cardens - as usual for lunch - and what can I say? It was yet again a marvellous experience. Catherine was (as always) elegant and charming. A shared entree of escargots was sublime with a serve of bread to "mop up" the great garlic butter. While my wife stayed with our traditional, much savoured Moreton Bay Bugs,... More

One of the best places in the area, the food is always fresh and perfectly cooked and presented. I can honestly say I've never had a better steak, and their seafood is always delicious. Would recommend to anyone and everyone. The staff are always hard working and lovely people.

Cardens remains in my top three restaurants in Melbourne (we travel a fair distance to get there) and is certainly the VERY best for seafood. The restaurant has a relaxed bistro vibe (we usually do lunch) and it is pleasant to sit by the window in the small dining room and watch the hustle and bustle of multicultural Dandenong. George...

We were a group of 6. Three had the bugs, two had the mariners platter, and one had a curry chicken (or similar). Loved the bugs, loved the platters - chicken OK. Salmon roulade for appetizer was great - lots of salmon and big slices of avocado on a green salad base. Very, very nice. The oysters Kilpatrick were good,... More

I ate here for the second time in two months. I was attending a sales conference and our company took us to Carden's for dinner. The meals are very generous in size but very fresh. The flavors are just superb. We had a few bottles of wine as they have a great list to choose from as well. Excellent service,... More

Food was great, large portions and lots of variety. Staff were very friendly and went out of their way. The decor of the place could do with updating and this would be top class.
