Amazing food but be prepared for a long wait. The rice noodles are delicious. Shut Mai were also excellent. Fresh seafood and great banana fritter.

So disappointed with our experience at Lucy’s. The service was poor, we waited almost an hour for two average dishes of food whilst tables of large groups who ordered after us were served first. Noodles were bland and flavourless, just noodles in a bowl with...no seasoning. Sichuan chicken with not a sichuan peppercorn in site! I appreciate they were busy and doing their best, but it’s a firm no from me.More

Dined here on a Thursday night in a group of 6, much better than the previous visits, improvement had come. Meals were tasty and delivered promptly, no longer just cash but now has eftpos facilities. Worth a visit.

Not a lot of Choices in Mallacoota for restaurants but Lucy’s is great food. Don’t go there expecting fine dining. It is all about the food. A bit rough and ready. Collect your our own condiments, glasses and if you’ve booked find your name on...a table - so funny. Staff are busy with no frills. Definitely go for the foodMore

Food was very good however restaurant very unclean which definitely undermined enjoyment of meal. Birds on tables and generally grubby. A pity really...

Going by the majority of reviews, the meals would probably be nice. However, the shop front, windows, door etc looked very dirty so we didn’t dare try it.

Dropped into Lucy's for lunch. It is Asian cruise. We sat at a table outside under the veranda. Great day for it. We ordered a prawn, garlic and vegetables and a szechuan beef with a small special fried rice, plus 2 coffees - latte and...strong long black. We could smell our meal being cooked (we were the only ones there at that stage). If the meal was as good as it smelt we were going to be happy customers. The meal was as good as it smelt cooking. Partner had around 15 large prawns on her plate and the vegies were firm but not under cooked, and the szchuan beef had a lovely taste and mild to warm spicy taste to it. The coffees were spot on. I notice mixed reviews but from our experience we can recommend Lucy's.More

Great food, unique service and the best Asian dining for kms. The food is cooked fresh and is delicious. It’s a help yourself restaurant, by getting your own glasses and ordering at the counter. It’s not a 5 star restaurant nor does it pretend to...be but definitely worth going to when in Mallacoota.More

After reading the reviews, perhaps my expectations were too high. Homemade rice noodles.... Asian owner in a country town... rave reviews. I was not expecting Hong Kong, Melbourne or even Box Hill standards but I dreamed. Sadly my experience was poor. I rang to book...as I expected a busy night. Reservation was taken, but she didn’t ask me for my name or number. Not looking good. When I arrived I realised why. It was packed, there was a line 10 people deep at the counter, they were totally understaffed and overwhelmed. To their credit 4 of them were doing the work of 8 and kept a smile on their faces. We settled in and were patient. Sadly the food was very poor. The dim sum was low cost commercial grade straight from the freezer (maybe if you rarely eat this food you would not know the difference, but I do). The noodles were flavourless. They came with say 3cms of watery liquid in the bottom of the bowl. Not noodle soup, not noodles with sauce... something in between. The beef that came with “beef noodles” were cold slices of very dry, fat-less roasted piece of beef. Genuinely terrible. We ate about half and had to leave. I gave them a 2 star because they are clearly nice people trying their best given the spike in local tourism. On another note, numerous older locals who knew the owner by name, were not wearing masks (mandatory government restrictions were in place). Everyone else was wearing them as they entered, stood in the line, or got up to use the facilities. Not the locals. Insert political comment here.... bushfire recovery, help us recover, etc.More
