Unfortunately, this venue with lovely view did not impress with it's food. Expensive prices - $26 for 4 crumbed pieces of fish, awful chips and about a tablespoon of basic salad. Disappointing.

Ate here twice and was equally impressed each time. The menu on the wall seems underwhelming and over-priced. In fact, on face-value it looks like pub food: fish and chips, steak and chips, chicken schnitzel. However, what is served is far from the ordinary. Food was cooked beautifully and presented in ways that really looked every bit as appetising. Servings... More

Two nights in Port Arthur and dined at Lucky Ducks both nights. First night enjoyable, second night even better. Food was beautifully prepared - we had the beer battered flathead first night and the marinated local quail the second. Just great. Accompanying salads were excellent. Wine list looks low key but is surprising - each wine had bottle age from... More

Had the most wonderful dinner. Baked salmon and salad for me and my husband had the flathead. Fresh, gorgeous and beautifully presented. (Thats the food not the husband - but he is not bad either!) Accompanied by the local chardonnay, as recommended by the owner. Fantastic sunset - almost as good as the dinner. A cafe and view not to... More

It said Spicy Thai Beef Coconut Curry w/ steamed rice and baby spinach $29. Self explanatory you'd think. What arrived looked like lumps in diarrhea. I'm serious. Dark stagnant goo next to the proverbial upturned teacup of rice. Totally unappetizing. We all know that sometimes what looks awful can be surprisingly good. Not this sucker. It was certainly spicy but... More

An unassuming looking cafe on the main road entering Nubeena proved to be a wonderful surprise! We consumed with gusto a delightful meal of "pink Ling, calamari, salad and chips accompanied by a very tasty glass of Relbia Pinot Grigio". All this combined with a sensational view across to Parsons Bay. It was particularly refreshing to have a delicate batter... More

We had an amazing breakfast here. The mushrooms on Bruschetta were just divine. My husband said the scrambled eggs were the best he had ever tasted. The service was fast & friendly. Nice water views. Coffee was great too. Definitely on our "must go back to" list
