Delicious slow cooked lamb shoulder with couscous. Delighted the menu discription actually matched the meal. Staff friendly and efficient.

This is a quiet cafe which serves lovely breakfasts using really fresh ingredients. We had the twice cooked cheese souffle, eggs and the Danish omelette. Everything was beautifully presented and tasted delicious. The coffee was also great.

Intimate beautiful, plush elegant decor and stunning food. The small tastes were a great way for the indecisive as you can have a bite of them all. The King fish ceviche with gespacio ice cream was amazing and how could you go wrong with a prosciutto wrapped scallops! The daily fish special had Clever deep flavours, whilst my husband barely...

The first time we dinned here we were delighted. Sadly our second time was a let down. My pork belly entree was great and we both decided to have the Swordfish special for a main. Both dishes were served cold, they were apologetic and brought out two new Swordfish dishes only to discover, they were served cold as well. On... More

Another very nice meal at the cardigan. They fitted us in even though they had a function. The house bread was wonderful.

We regularly visit Lord Cardigan. The food is excellent and menus always changing with what is in season. Never had a bad meal here. Staff are professional, yet polite and friendly. Not a big restaurant but at least you can have a conversation without noise bouncing off the walls. Love this place and the food! Australian good food!

The Lord Cardigan has become an Albert Park establishment. The food and service is always first class. A couple of years ago we had our wedding celebration there and all the guests are still talking about it. It feels like you are at home at the Lord Cardigan. Fantastic?

What a lovely lunch venue in a beautiful location. I must confess I do love Albert Park. We all had different versions of the fish special - grilled snapper, battered fish and chips and whole flounder. All were cooked and presented very nicely. Very friendly and helpful wait staff. Very happy to recommend.

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 we waited and it... More
