I would say 3 out of 5 meals were reasonably good ( crab linguine). I found my risotto very average ( more just like flavoured rice) although barramundi on top very tasty. However my husband who ordered a steak burger told me later it was the worst burger he had ever eaten. Apparently it was stone cold and the bun was stale! He did not say anything at the time as my father was shouting us lunch and my husband did not want to complain and sound ungrateful.
Very disappointing when a restaurant can't even manage a decent burger!
We arrived on time and our window table was ready and the wait staff we're attentive. Food and coffer ordered but we have to wait 50 minutes for the food to arrive. The coffee was average with on guest sending theirs back for an additional shot. Good value for money and you can't beat the view, just a pity about the long wait for the food.
On Booking there was no where to leave a comment. I Wanted an outside table along the railing.
When I arrived tables were all taken and despite online booking, no effort was made to reserve one.
I traveled 50min to meet a Clint and specifically choose that restaurant for the views n seating. I was disappointed to say the least.
Second time we've eaten at the Blue Duck - although we live in Scotland. Wonderful sunset and the food was good.
A couple of things that disappointed. The seat chairs are solid plastic and quite uncomfortable to sit on in the heat. I ordered a trio of ice creams and was looking forward particularly to the espresso flavour. However, when it was served it had been replaced with rum and raisin (not my favourite) and I was told they had run out of espresso although this wasn't mentioned when I ordered it. I was offered an espresso ... but not quite the same
Breakfast was great loved the options and service was very warm and professional, will certainly be coming down again.
our order was mislaid, so we waited a long time, fortunately seated on the balcony, so not a big problem. Manager was very apologetic, but could have offered us free drinks as compensation!'the fish and chips were excellent, the beer was good
We came for my daughters birthday and my first visit to the blue duck, had a seat on the balcony over looking the beach, beautiful night.
Our young waiter was very polite and attentive.
We ordered small bites for the table, the buttermilk chicken was very very salty and looked like beef
I wouldn't order the grazing board again, got no charcuterie , was replaced with anchovies, why? not a great choice for $24
I ordered a child's ice-cream , one scoop of chocolate and was charged $14
No children menus or colouring and what we were offered my children didnt want
Overall experience was lovely, a bit pricey but we will come back
I’ve eaten here several times and been pleased - not this time. I booked lunch for 3, 3 weeks in advance. This time I was bringing overseas friends but we were met by an unfriendly slim young blond girl with attitude. She showed us to a table in the middle of the room. We asked if we could have a table by the window. She said NO, that table was for four. I said so was the other one. She then disappeared, came back & said ok with obvious attitude. Not a good way to start the meal, which by the way was nothing special for the price. I felt let down by the experience.
Spur of the moment decision to dine out . Late booking but managed to secure a table easily through Opentable. Service and welcome on arrival was good. Lovely warm evening so were seated on the seafront deck .Service throughout was good . Good food selection menu.
The food and drinks were served in good time and I understand that there were some new selections from a new chef. Pleasant throughout.
One criticism would be on the decor, this prime location, combined with the food and drink on offer lends itself to an upgrade in decore from the plastic chairs, cafe tables etc. not bad , but could be better with a little thought.
All in all a good evening.
We chose the brekki board from the new menu. It was excellent!
This was a booking done online and was responded to very quickly indeed. As usual, the breakfast was delicious and the service by the delightful young waitress was quick and professional. The Blue Duck is always my "go-to" restaurant when meeting up with friends.
Location great. Seats on the balcony that meshed into boys at pub on Sunday Sesh didn’t really work. Service was great !
Excellent location overlooking the beach; Good food; Reasonable price: Friendly service
Great location overlooking the ocean. Good food and friendly service. Would recommend to anyone looking for a casual meal in a great location.
Good service. Excellent food served in good time. And good to see friends and talk.
Waited over 2 and half hours for food and got nothing!! So we left!! Crappy service cause they lied saying our order is next.. and hour later still nothing
Amazing food, terrific waitress(fun, friendly, happy) and spectacular scenery. Superb!
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 😉
We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch experience - excellent food & reasonably priced!
Great views of the ocean - very friendly & efficient service - great ambiance.!
The Barramundi from Cone Bay was superb!!
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.
Breakfast was enjoyable, well presented and offered extremely good value for money. The service and atmosphere was perfect.
Great venue, food and service with amazing views, ticked all the boxes.
Great staff - quick service - very friendly - food was excellent - best view
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.
Meals were of high quality, flavoursome and fresh! Crafted in a way only an amazing chef would do!
The wait staff responded to our requests re seating, music promptly and courteously. Two of the 4 main meals were"amazing".
Great food, great view, great service (French girl) the place let it down it's a bit like a canteen
My calamari was though and rhe salad limp. Service was great thoigh.
Server was a lovely young lady. Location and view spectacular. Food somewhat lacklustre.
the ambience and service was good. Unfortunately, the food did not live up to it's brand.
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.
Fantastic view, fantastic service but most of all fantastic food!
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.
Nice view especially at summer right now
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!!
Went for lunch. The menu choice was good and the beer and wine selection excellent. The service was friendly and efficient and the venue itself is very relaxing.
