We only discovered this backstreet gem via a voucher deal and we were very pleasantly surprised. We booked in for Saturday lunch on a chilly winters day and were welcomed by an open log fire which made it a warm, cosy dining experience. For entrée we shared a tasting plate including kofta balls with house chutney, crab arancini, salami, olives,... More

Great if you need a quick feed at the local, with a few beers with friends. Remember it is a pub trying to serve fancy food. It is perfect for a meet up with friends and remember to check out the outdoor area. Don't come here expecting to be wowed, as the food does miss the mark.

Even with the low expectations we would have from pub grub, this place was a major disappointment. Whilst the food was just ok, and the outdoor area pleasant enough, that is the extent of anything positive we can report. Staff were disinterested, disengaged and mostly disappeared!! There was almost no one else in the place, yet everything seemed to just... More

Tuesday night at The Duck is Steak Night. Have tried this for one night a month over the past five months and have never experienced a badly cooked steak. Always medium-rare and tender, as expected. Excellent value when chips and salad are added. Wine list has some good options as well.

We went to The Flying Duck in Bendigo Street, Prahan last Saturday for lunch with friends and we had a lovely time. The service was excellent as to was the food. Fillet Steak, Lamb Shanks and Kangaroo Fillets were all delicious. The open fire was a bonus but the Atrium with glass roof was also cosy. Would recommend for a... More

It was very busy and the effecient staff were run off their feet.We started with a shared tasting platter, excellent, then I had Pork Belly wich was delicious, tender, melt in mouth pork, crispy crackling with...

The beer garden was fantastic. Those beautiful trees that once graced the view are now completely blocked out. It's tent city. Such a shame.

Reasonably priced bar food with a nice wine list, friendly staff, gets a bit noisy late weekend nights

We recently had a birthday lunch here for 22 people. The service was exceptional and the food was fantastic. The owner of this cafe and his staff make you feel so welcomed as soon as you enter his cafe. The quality of the food and the price is exceptional. Definitely a must if you are travelling through Vacy to eat... More
