In Jan 2015 I had an awful meal here. See "Horrid Thai Curry and Rude owner". Recently I considered dropping in to have a cuppa with the local knitters group who gather at the café on a Wednesday. The Lucky Duck Club secretary, Sue Landy, advised me the owners had said NO. So I guess "don't book again" was a... More

We happened upon this little restaurant by chance when all options around our accommodation at Port Arthur were unavailable. It proved to be a little gem, cosy, friendly and with very good food. Well worth driving the 13 kms to eat here at this unassuming where the food is the focus not the bling.

Situated overlooking the water, this is a perfect place to eat some of the house-made locally sourced food, as well as purchase a loaf of freshly cooked bread and any number of cakes, slices, biscuits and pies. The chaps also sell produce from their farm when it is available - at present big bunches of alstroemeria. Service is friendly and... More

Love the coffee. Chips are cooked properly ... nice color on them and crispy. Marinated mushrooms sooooo yum.... croissants so lovely.... great pies... stewed fruit on french toasted brioche needs extra piece of brioche or less fruit as the balance of flavors was off otherwise very yum. And of course love the service.

Excellent fresh, tasty, beautifully cooked meal. Prepared and served by owners that know their food. Good choice of Tasmanian wine also. We currently work locally and feel very fortunate to have this standard of food available without having to go into Hobart. Given the casual environment of Lucky Ducks the prices at first glance may seem high but they are... More

We don’t mind supporting local businesses. This one was recommended by the hotel owners, received better-than-average reviews on Tripadvisor – everything seemed to line up ok. Especially, if considering that they’re open for business even on cold, damp and windy winter nights when Nubeena is NOT overrun by tourists. Our family had just walked out of the National Park after... More

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
