Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

After traveling for over 36 hours to get to Melbourne, my wife and I were looking for something near the hotel. This fit the bill. Great location on the water. Food was excellent, particularly the fish and chips.

A group of 4 that showed up with no booking, we were pleasantly surprised that there were tables available. The staff when we arrived were super friendly and the vibe was chill and welcoming. There was an option to either order at the bar, or...from our phones via a QR code. We all ordered different things via the QR code, and the food came out reasonably quickly. As a group we ordered the Mac N cheese, fish, pumpkin salad, and berry sorbet. All of these were highly rated by the group, as was the quick service. The prices were also pretty reasonable. The view across the water and the of the sunset was amazing, all around 4 stars and would returnMore

We had come in for dinner around 10pm on a Friday night and I can't express how great the service was from all the floor staff we dealt with, the food was amazing & was served super fast. I have never been to a venue...where the food had pretty much come out a few minutes after ordering without sacrificing quality & taste, great job!!!More

We’ve been coming to Cargo for many years when visiting Melbourne. Sadly on our first trip back to Melbourne last year after covid we noticed they no longer have a breakfast service and it appeared this was still the case this time too. In all...honestly though, we were just glad they were still open as it appears not many restaurants in the area have survived. We popped in for dinner and were seated promptly. You can order at the table through the QR code or you can go up to the counter and order. We paid cash so did the latter. Food came out quickly and was enjoyable. The portions are a good size that we couldn’t fit dessert in, although I had intended on trying the cookie - I will do next time! Our family tends to stick to restaurants we know and enjoy, especially with fussy eater teenagers, and we have yet to have a bad experience here. We look forward to our next visit.More

Great spot for a casual dinner with good food, good drinks, and a great view / ambience. Ordering from the table using their app means you can control when the food and drinks come (just place a new order when you want them), and the...service was friendly and quick. A bad glass of wine was immediately replaced with no problem, and the food was great! We had a mussels small plate followed by paella. The mussels were spicy and delicious, with blistered tomatoes, chorizo, and just enough kick to be special but not overwhelming. The paella was very good and more than the two of us could eat.More

My wife is probably the world’s foremost dessert addict - and even she couldn’t finish the “death by cookie” they serve here. Simply fantastic. Friendly staff, lovely skyline views and a great spicy pizza. We had a good time, thank you.

Cargo has become our local go to place for a drink and food. We dropped in late afternoon and enjoyed a few drinks while the sun was setting. We shared a capricciosa pizza which was delivered hot with a nicely scorched crust. Filling was perfect...with the anchovies giving a good salt him. As we hadn’t finished the very good bottle of Shiraz we ordered the pork belly tacos. A generous serve of 3 tacos were full of flavour. We enjoyed the experience so much we ordered a takeaway margarita pizza a few nights later. All staff we dealt with were friendly, accommodating and efficientMore

Went on a weekday, service was fast and friendly however food was average. Had the Pizza for main and chickpeas for an entree. Both came out at the same time, Pizza was average, lacking a decent crispy crust and toppings were warm at best. Clearly...paying for the view which was nice.More
