The Flying Duck Melbourne Is A Pub With Something Special
The Flying Duck Hotel in Prahran is the local you want, need and love. It’s tucked down a quiet suburban side street, unassuming, local, friendly, welcoming and warm. It caters to the locals who’re after that nightly pot of beer, or the dinner-goers whose demand for something lush and relatively luxurious, but still accessible dictates where they go and what they eat.
It’s a pet project of its owners, who’re renowned for their Flinders Hotel out of the CBD and what they’ve made a name for themselves in at their out-of-towner, they carry over into their inner city offering, playing with quality food in a pleasant environment. Their chefs are international, resulting in some odd choices of ingredients coming together, but ones that result in flavours that just make you want to keep eating. The decor is as relaxed as it is luxurious and friendly, with leather sofas, carpeted areas and breakaway finer dining rooms from the more discerning visitors.
The Flying Duck plays on its homegrown name and Australian sensibilities from the food, to the curated drinks menu, coupled with the open air al fresco beer garden to the distinct and separate dining rooms. Its staff are friendly, well learned and helpful, which when deciding whether to order ceviche on a pink salt rock ($20), croquettes made of sun-dried tomato and goats cheese with a broccoli pesto ($15) or duck breast with barley salad and green peas ($34) or a lamb rump with mint, carrots, coconut and beetroot ($32), so you know you’ve made the right choice.
