    Once again, Lord Cardigan rises to the occasion. The inventiveness of the food, the courtesy of the service, the ease of the atmosphere – all combine to make this restaurant a place to which one returns time and time again.

    Excellent as always, the food, the friendly service, the atmosphere, I can't recommend any dish particularly as all so good, but the fish and chips in chick pea batter an absolute must. Janet and friends.

    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.

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
