The food was way terrible. we had a valentine package, but the chicken liver was grossed and Morton bay bugs were too salty. It was only 4 course but it cost you $130 per person, overpriced.

Food good but not outstanding- betel leaf had too many raw ingredients, Morton bay bug
had a side that was not nice. View and service brilliant. Wine list also fantastic. I expected fresh wholesome food but the execution was not great.

Strong Chilli in dishes that the waitress said wasn’t there and wasn’t mentioned on the menu. Strong gust of wind blew all of the wine glassses over in the resteruany. No replacement wine was offered. Very overpriced for valentines set meal. Probably won’t go back

The food was tasty, well cook and well presented. However it was over priced and not much choice. The view is lovely, if you were at a table beside the window but the restaurant lighting was terrible noise and ambience wasn’t as hoped. The restaurant had more like a hotel buffet restaurant vibe.

Food was excellent especially the mussels ! The only slight gripe I have was when I had the chocolate parfait which h qml lovely but so frozen it was difficult to cut off a piece and asked if it could be served with a little cream or ice cream on the side and was charged an extra $7.50 for a small scoop of icecream!. I will be back though .

The flavours of the food were incredible. Service not so much. Table half an hour late, then waited for several minutes before offered drinks, both bread and entrée came out before our bottle of wine. They could improve on timing of service.

Food & service were excellent. But for an anniversary dinner we would have preferred something a little more intimate. It is a very noisy restaurant

Wonderful waitress, wonderful view.
Average food and cocktails were watery with hardly a drop of alcohol.
There is just too much good competition out there.

The atmosphere was alright, but definitely had more of a daytime vibe.

The cocktails to start were light and inoffensive.

The food was all significantly over cooked. The starter and both mains were hot when they hit the table (the kitchen likely didn’t allow them to rest) and were very overdone. Flavours were OK, but nothing noteworthy.

Overall, it was poor value at $200 for two people. At half the price I still wouldn’t rush back.

Beautiful ambience at Three Blue Ducks, view for the fireworks was stunning. Loved the oval-shaped dining table and mixed series of seating, everything felt intentional but relaxed. Food was delicious. The mussels were incredible!!! We had the lamb and chicken shared style with sides added for 8 people (3 lambs, 2 chickens and the mussels and we were rolling home!). Jacob looked after us - service was spot on, he allowed us to take our time (several times over), he had a gentle and relaxed manner about him but delivered on all we asked - he even sang happy birthday twice at our table. Thanks for a great night Three Blue Ducks! x

Was not going to come here since the restaurant I booked did not open on Ausi Day. Great ambience with glass doors opening up for the view if South Bank. So surprised to see the fireworks! Food was OK with the grills a bit overrgrilled. Side desserts and dessert was great. My friends and I had a great time at the corner table that I requested.

Our food was very average. The starter and desert we had were beautiful but we were very disappointed with our main dishes and sides dishes. The steak was very poor quality with a lot of sinew and a lot of wast to be honest. I would recommend going for nibbles and drinks because the ambience and the view are quite nice but the meals were over priced for what you get.

I would recommend anyone to go to the Byron Bay location however the Brisbane location is way to noisy with the traffic which is a shame as the food is amazing and I feel the owners could have got such a better location.

You could tell the seasoned staff to the new staff. Some training would help.

The service is outstanding! Especially from the girl in blue shirt! But minus for the moment we needed to wait to be seated. There was no host to welcome us and we needed to wait after the booking time passed. The foods are quite creative and modern! Fresh ingredients and appropriated time to serve.

The food and location/scenery was good but the service was lacking. The staff seemed snobbish and forgot about a drinks order. The food came out staggered and we were left waiting for one dish while the others came out a few minutes prior.
The starters were taken away while we were still eating them only to wait another 40 mins for the mains.
Was expecting much better service from this restaurant.

The food is nothing special; nothing really great; the view of the Brisbane river is gorgeous with the sunset; waitress is attentive; but the servers keep crossing the whole of the restaurant; due to the set up(?) making it look not relaxing; Not a place for meeting of catching up, you won't be able to hear each other properly due to the noise, the 2 bars are also at the maximum noise level. The reviews I have read are exaggerated; expectation was high; but the ducks did not live to the expectation, sadly

We ordered a range of dishes from the menu including the fava bean and anchovy dip, oysters, lamb, prawns, mussels and the kids burger. All were magnificent. The wine was delicious too. We'd love to go back!

A laid back class to the whole place including the staff.

Three ducks was definitely worth the visit. We enjoyed the lamb share dish, which was beautifully cooked and melted off the bone. Also the accompanying vegetables were really tasty and a great mix.
Our friends both had the Morton bay bugs, which they both loved. As we were going to a concert we ate early and the sun was a little bright (sunglasses needed). Our young waiter was a lovely and very attentitive young man and knew the menu well and answered all our questions, he also recommended a lovely Pino Grigio.
