“Great Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

Lovely home grown produce is used in a variety of noodle dishes and dumplings. Cash only but for a really cheap meal this is the place to go. We have eaten there a year ago and the standard has been maintained. Unfortunately the place was a bit dirty with condiments sticky, tables with crumbs and help yourself cutlery. The high volume of patrons puts the pressure on the staff who look like they needed a holiday.

We ate here three times while in the area. Great food, reasonably priced. Don't miss the homemade dumplings!

“Fresh, home-made, healthy - delightful.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

Simple menu made from fresh local and home grown ingredients. I had the seafood noodle dish - it had so much abalone and other fresh local seafood it would have cost $100 in a city restaurant! Dumplings are so fresh and tasty - nothing like them - simply devine I could have eaten dozens of them. A must try if you're visiting Mallacoota.

“A little gem in downtown Mallacoota”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Lucy's in downtown Mallacoota is a simple unpretentious place to eat, but with some exceptional food. It's somewhere between a cafe and a restaurant and has a useful wine list. The prices are quite reasonable and it's relaxed, whether you eat indoors or on the verandah.

Lucy makes fresh authentic rice noodle dishes that are highly rated in reviews by national food critics as authentic Chinese cuisine. Apparently, Tony, who is Lucy's husband, maintains a vegetable and herb garden to ensure that ingredients are as fresh as possible. As well as the very tasty noodle dishes Lucy makes fresh and delicious dumplings and spring rolls. For us these three lines on the menu were the stand-outs, although there were other dishes with local fish and abalone, that we haven't yet tried.

We really liked this little place and get the impression it contributes a lot, as far as eating out is concerned, to the quality of downtown Mallacoota.

“Fresh and homemade Food made by the Lovely Lucy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

This is the place that the locals and the tourists flock to for a great feed. We had the abalone noodles and the pork, the noodles were so soft and yummy. We thought we might miss out on the dumplings as it was a very busy night. Lucy promised me that she would make sure that if there was any left we would get to try her tasty creations. True to her word she came over and offered us 6 for us to take back to our accommodation to enjoy with a glass of wine while watching the full moon rise over the beautiful waters of Mallacoota.
