Food was tasty, however a little pricey e.g extra bacon $7. Would have liked the menu to give a small description on how the oreo hot choc was served as I wasn’t aware it came with whipped cream. The flavour was surprisingly bland as well. The Turkish eggs were great!

Great spot to watch the sun go down. Wait staff were very friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed the squid salad and broccoli tempura. And if you want a great sugar hit to finish off with the lemon cheese cake was delish 😉

Good seating with million dollar views all the way to Rottnest, excellent food as always from the varied menu. The friendly and efficient staff were eager to accommodate and assist as usual. What more could one ask for? We will definitely be back again for more!

A group of 5, we had brunch. Food selection and presentation was great. Food really tasty and presented well. Service with a smile. Also had great coffee. What more could you want when sitting and looking out on the beautiful ocean.

The Blue Duck was a Special Brunch Date for my Wife's Birthday. It has long been considered as a special place to celebrate a special day or event. Such a beautiful location could only be enhanced by some beautiful classical music playing softly in the background (in MY opinion). The food and service were up to our expectations - although a later, additional order was overlooked and had to be asked for.

Havn't been to the Blue Duck for several years, having moved away from Cottesloe. The service was great, the view on the balcony amazing, you really feel a connection with the water and beach below. We had the crab linguini which was wonderful.

Impeccable service and tasty meals but the wine list needs work, especially wines by the glass, the wines are offer are very average and wines on the list not much better.

Pleasant beach front cafe but seriously needs to improve its service if it wants to compete with all the new eateries along the coast.

The view is spectacular, but the lack of menu items and portion sizes of the food were a little disappointing. The staff were lovely, but there didn't seem to be enough of them to look after the amount of people. Take advantage of surroundings and add some creativity to the menu and food.

food was simple but good. Wine list surprisingly good and service was outstanding. Friendly without being in your face. Our servers were from Italy and France and i guess they know a thing or two about hospitality over there!!

We last ate here about 8 years ago and have always raved to everyone about the food and location. Our return this weekend did not disappoint. The service was fantastic, the food amazing, and the views and ambience second to non. We sat on the deck and enjoyed the mussels, pasta dish and mimosas while watching the sun go down and were really well looked after. We will definitely be back again, thank you!
