Took a couple of friends and it was perfect for the occasion.
We went for a family birthday celebration. Great location overlooking the beach. Fish & chips and chowder were great as was service. Atmosphere not so good but due to Covid and they were closing up around us, so felt we couldn't stay as long as we wanted.
Great as always, love this place
loved where it is for the view the food was really very good.
value for money very good will be back again
Best table in the house, with awesome views which we enjoyed. Food was lovely and the service very friendly and attentive. We have been several times as family groups and have always been surprised how good you are as a cafe. Thankyou and we will return for more of your great venue
A great place to view the incoming rain squalls. Overall very enjoyable as both food and service were also good.
Excellent value, incredible view and very friendly staff.
It was so cold. We were with an elderly couple and the door kept getting opened. They were freezing. We asked to move and the waitress obliged.
The food was nice but not much menu selection.
I think they need to get their heating fixed and maybe increase menu selection to attract more clientele.
Overall pretty disappointed with our meal at Blue Duck and certainly won't be rushing back. The waitress was excellent and we loved her interactions with our table, she made the effort to detail which items were gluten free on the menu and which could have a gluten free option. I had the fish and chips, the fish was delicious but for $22 it was a small serve and if you wanted salad that had to be ordered separately. Others had the seafood pasta (apparently dreadful), the pork belly (all fat no meat) and the barramundi (again, vegetables etc had to be ordered separately). The decor is looking pretty tired, paper menu-placemats, not a great ambience, freezing wind blowing through everytime the front door is opened. I really do feel for small restaurants in this time of COVID, but I couldn't recommend this place for a night out.
Staff friendly and efficient. Food was served quickly, well presented and tasty.
Lovely food, stunning view even during a storm, friendly and helpful staff. Open space is quite noisy and felt a tad chilly... wooden flooring Without carpet or mats maybe a contributing factor?
No vegan options and unable to substitute food items made the brunch menu, whilst varied, a little restrictive.
But we all enjoyed what we ate and drank despite this!
I did not like the decor for a winters night. The chairs and tables created a cold stark atmosphere.
Food was very good and good prices.
Service was awesome !!!!!
Food was delicious, unfortunatey service was soo poor that we wont be back again in a hurry. Not using COVID-19 as an excuse there seemend to be plenty of staff, and the staff who served us at the table were very polite and friendly, but extremely slow in getting meals from the counter to the table. Service at payment was also poor - not sure the staff member actually wanted to be there. Shame, this restaurant has been a favourite in the past but some serious changes needed before we return.
We booked for 4 last Sunday and so glad we didn't come on a whim because at 9.30 there wasn't a table to spare! When we left, the que was out the door for non-bookings.
Wonderful service, bright, happy and such good value, we threw in a tip for good measure. Thank you for happy Sundays!
Great food and service, not too expensive either and with an awesome view for your evening meal. Highly recommend
First time at the Blue Duck and overall a good experience, the food was very tasty and the waitress looking after us was so nice!
Unfortunately the lady at the cashier wasn’t as nice as the waitress, she was quite abrupt borderline rude and it seemed to bem and my friends that by her attitude she was the owner which was even more disappointing.
Asked for a hot coffee,it was only warm,ordered another and asked again for it to be hot,same result.i have been coming for breakfast for some years and has not been a problem but it seems the barista or the machine need replacing.
Had the Surfers Breakfast and didn’t need to eat until 3pm!
Great view, very friendly staff and value for money food
Food was absolutely delicious as was the juice. Serbia was great and view was outstanding.
Could do with some rugs or soft furnishings as noise was loud and only 2 tables inside
Place needs some TLC, a bit of an internal paint job and touch up. Didn’t see it but my sister did not enter the toilet as the door was so dirty....
The porridge was delicious.
The surfers breakfast, well cooked and nicely presented.
Full breakfast for $12 with ocean front table is ridiculously good value. Service and quality were great as well.
As usual the service, food and value were outstanding. Recommended to anyone who appreciates a really valuable experience.
Way too much salad on sat and pepper squid. Spaghetti was ok but not memorable
We were recommended and overall a pleasant experience however thought you could do much better on food quality
Good was great but service was lacking
Inattentive and unprofessional waiting staff
We have taken quiet a few guests along from interstate. We have never been disappointed and our guests have loved it. They love the view the food and excellent service.
The waitress had an attitude, she
Couldn’t remember who ordered what drink and put the drinks down in front of the wrong people without asking and walked away. The salad was dressing heavy and looked like it had been made the day before and sitting there overnight wilting away.
I found the good was a bit too oily especially the cooked greens
Superb location. Tasty, well prepared, fresh food a delight. Service was excellent. Couldn't have asked for more!
My first visit in a few years to the Blue Duck and sadly it is a shadow of it's glory days. Understaffed, not willing to make small variations to meals and a 15 minute wait from seating to be asked if we wanted a drink...
The breakfasts might be great but the lunches were a huge disappointment.. I should have realised once the place clears out after the breakfast crowd .. my husband and I were meeting friends for a brunch but got there early after a swim .. the chips were overcooked but were replaced when this was pointed out.. we were asked if everything else was ok.. our friends didn’t want to make a fuss but if the staff can’t work out that the calamari was very unappealing, pathetically overcooked to be non existent then that’s a problem .. the salads were ok but def never having lunch there again . Coffee is good
We were not offered water on our table and our drinks came out after our breakfast. When we mentioned it the waitress was short with us.
Lovely food. The oyster special for Valentines’s Day was a little over priced. The Angus steak was delicious. We were there before 6pm and were given the Happy Hour wine menu. The wines were good and great value. Very nice service. Unfortunately it was very hot on the deck.
Lovely premises, gorgeous food (I adored the mussels). Great view of the sunset!
it was enjoyable and the meal was very good.
excellent friendly service.
Great view, food was nice. Unfortunately the decor was poor and outdated. The bathroom facilities were very shabby considering it is a wedding reception venue. Great location, but needs a serious makeover.
nice place, food was good. It was noisy inside (not good for easy conversation) and the maitre d' was a bit brusque. But the venue is pretty special!
Thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast menu, great service and a magnificent view. What’s not to like, will be back again
