    The restaurant is lovely and the staff are fabulous. Our good however was disappointing. We all had the Hapuka fish. The fish was overcooked, it was a very thick piece and rubbery. The dish also lacked seasoning and was extremely bland. We all found this to be true. The side dishes were nice.

    The team at Lord Cardigan do a great job. Degustation is only once each month but it has been fabulous and well patronised.

    Rosie and John are the best restaurateurs of our time. Exceptional service, food, wine and the ambience creates a wonderful dining experience. I can't wait to go back.

    Great menu, wine list and service! The new menu has some fabulous dishes on it. We had the whiting special which was beautifully cooked and complemented with some interesting flavours. This is out Friday night 'go to' neighbourhood restaurant and is highly recommended. The service is always impeccable.

About the restaurant

A Diamond in the Not-So-Rough You’ll feel like guests at a good friend’s house for dinner when you dine at charming Lord Cardigan in the refined neighbourhood of Albert Park. Established by chef John Singer (who trained under Herman Schneider before running Harvey’s and Hotel Spencer) and his wife Dominique Bolger, Lord Cardigan provides a sublime mix of flavours in creative dishes. The ingredients are quintessentially Australian while the preparation showcases the best of European and Asian influences. Stroll through Albert Park village to Lord Cardigan to enjoy breakfast or brunch, lunch or dinner. Or stop in for a pick-me-up coffee or relaxing glass of wine. The atmosphere is refreshingly welcoming, managing to be refined without too much fuss. You’ll feel right at home as you enjoy an entrée of Tasmanian Pacific oysters or grilled green prawns and calamari. For a main, take your pick from the fish of the day or a variety of seasonal chicken, duck, lamb, beef and other dishes. And dessert? Worth saving some room for. Treat yourself to this Albert Park diamond in the not-so-rough. Best Dish: Flinders Island lamb rump
