DUCKFAT’s concept is a bold departure from traditional French dining norms. aiming to break conventional codes and redefine the essence of French cuisine. The venue’s industrial ambiance, reminiscent of a modern art museum, sets the stage for a novel experience.


Classic French style artworks are reinvested with street art graffiti, creating a gritty French aesthetic that challenges conventions. Soft, towering trees garnered with blush pink flowers add an ethereal touch, transporting guests to a whimsical place like no other.


Complementing this juxtaposition is sleek and sophisticated furniture, providing a modern canvas for the quirky, avant-garde plates that transform food into art pieces; ensuring they take centre stage.


"The food was amazing, but if I could give the service 10 stars - I would. It is rare to find a waitress who, even managing a big section, was so on top of everything. Never sitting without a drink, no empty lates sitting around for ages, recommendations spot on and just generally made us feel welcome. Will definitely be back!"
