Happened upon Lucky Duck looking for a late lunch on a rainy Sunday arvo. High quality, tasty food at reasonable prices. Much better than you should expect for an out of the way establishment. I would go out of my way to eat that well at Lucky Duck. I learned the locals like it also.

Lovely location, daggy decor and very good food - but nothing special. Service was very attentive, a bit pricey.

A pleasant little cafe overlooking the water with equally pleasant food, but at prices more suited to a restaurant with Sydney Harbour views. Ok for coffee, but food can be sourced more cheaply on the Tasman Peninsula.

We have a shack in the area and have had coffee etc. over the years. Coffee is excellent and the restaurant is always immaculate. We had breakfast today which was delicious; free-range eggs, bacon, sausages, lovely homemade bread and relish. It was nice to see organic seasonal produce available to purchase. We think the prices are fair as all products... More

Called in for afternoon tea. Coffee prices as expected around $5 mug BUT an average slice of apple and rhubarb sponge/pie was $14.50 per serve which was outrageous. It was nice and made on the premises but still did not justify the price. Had there been a price on the item in the cabinet we would never have been conned.... More

So about 18 months had past since our last visit and the time was now. We walked in and as usual the place was impeccably clean. Looking to the right is when I spotted it, there it was the fabled caramel and chocolate cake. I must have it! Clambering to the counter I ordered a slice and a slice of... More

Lucky Ducks is always reliable for great coffee, excellent home made food and friendly and happy service. Their pies are amazing and although they are a little pricey at $10 each, you have to remember they are all home made with local produce and if you were buying them at Salamanca or Battery Point or the Rocks, you would think...

We ate here on two occasions and both times each course was superb. A little bit pricey , but worth it to get away from pizza and chips! The seafood was superb and service was spot on. The beef tagine was great for a cold and wet evening. Make sure you make a booking or get there before before 6pm... More
