We stopped here for lunch and had a very nice meal. My fish and chips were particularly nice and good value at $15 for a meal and drink. Would return again.

We order our breakfast with tea but had to ask 4 times before it was delivered, the same with the tomato sauce/ ketchup. The food was OK but nothing to write home about.

The Ducks Nuts was The Ducks Guts. Food was excellent and well priced. Darwin doesn't seem to excel in customer service, but this place exceeded my expectations. The barman so helpful with the wine decision, and did all with a sense of humour. Highly recommended.

As a couple, I recently visited Ducks Nuts Bar & Grill for breakfast. We ordered the Corn Fritters Benny and the Local Tropical Fruit Salad. The food was very good, well presented and fresh. The service was attentive and welcoming. I recommend this place.
