Was pleasantly surprised to find this gem open in off season on the way back to our hotel. Stopped for a coffee, enjoying the views. They went out of their way and were lovely to our two kids who got to play with some toy ducks. Coffee was perfect. Here is a pic of our toy dinosaur (who is seeing... More

Finding this gem of a restaurant open in the off-season was an unexpected surprise! Ate here twice!! Excellent and friendly service. A variety of dishes available (fresh and local + loved the salad!!) and a wonderful Tasmanian wine list (very reasonably priced too). I'll be back when I am in this part of Tas again...

This is among the only few restaurants in Nubeena, a small lovely town near Port Arthur and White Beach. Reservations recommended. Tried the Premium Seafood Chowder & Fried Scallops. There were both phenomenal. Seafood was fresh and cooked to perfection. Service was great and atmosphere was good too.

Lucky Ducks is a small restaurant near the water in Nubeena, on the beautiful Tasman Peninsula. This is good, casual seaside dining with a fresh local menu. Service was slick and friendly and the menu had a good range of options. As mentioned by others, prices are highish but the food was well prepared and presented. The restaurant is not... More

We enjoyed morning coffee here and decided to return for dinner. We booked a table but on arriving were pointed towards our table by the door, then left there for 15 minutes without a welcome or being offered a drink. When the waiter did arrive he was apologetic and took our order. The food was tasty but expensive and it... More
