“Fine food in a small country town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013 via mobile

If you appreciate five star food try the Flying Duck cafe at Vacy. The quality of the food we had today was better than most of the up market restaurants i have eaten in over the past few years, and in a sleepy out of the way small country town. The chef / waiter should be commended for his outstanding service. We will definitley be back.

“Nice little Country Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

Myself and a work colleague ate at this cafe for just under a week straight and found all the food to be great. The male chef and young serving girls were always polite and friendly.
I highly recommend anyone driving through Vacy to stop in for a meal and coffee.

“Fantastic food and service in a small village.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

Great food! The pizza's are delicious, the tandoori chicken one is my favourite. My husband had the sirloin with herb butter and said it was Devine. This little gem of a restaurant is worth the drive! Family friendly aswell.

“Great pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

The service and food were great. Good variety of wines and perfect for a quiet weekend lunch. I had the lamb pizza and it was one of the best I have ever eaten and I have eaten a lot!
