The location is excellent - particularly for showcasing Brisbane to international visitors. On my latest visit, I found that the service was slow.

My husband and I went for a celebration dinner and were not disappointed by our choice of restaurants for the occassion. The service was very good, location and ambience perfect. We were very happy with our table which afforded us a lovely view of the Brisbane wheel, QPAC and Victoria Bridge complete with it's changing light show. The food was exceptional and we would highly recommend.

This is a large restaurant and we were placed in a rear area with one person having to face a wall, which is a shame considering the outlook is over the river. Entrees were good with the oysters and the Raw Fish the stand out however the Betel Leaf was a little bland. Decided to split the baked Whole Fish for main which was disappointing as the fish was a little mushy and the flavours lacking spice, the menus states lemon grass and chilli included but it was hard to discern. Wine list was reasonably extensive with lots of good options. Overall OK and would probably go back and try other mains on the menu.

I would say it has a lovely atmosphere.
I ordered sword fish it was dry. The waitress did say in order to prevent it drying out they cook it medium. Pity it was over cooked. The deserts were great.
Staff were terrific could not fault them.
Starters and main course average.
Deserts fantastic.

Great food and nice interior, however the restaurant insisted on keeping the terrace doors open, leaving us really cold and wind-swept - even though we were seated indoors. It was a cold and windy Brisbane day, but one would think that being indoor would keep us warm. Apparently it wasn't possible to close the terrace doors (we were seated just next to the opening) nor could they offer us table located somewhere warmer inside the restaurant. We had to leave after the mains, as we were freezing cold. This was particularly disappointing as it was my husband's birthday and we had brought along our daughter to celebrate what should have been a special family occasion.

I have been for dinner here before and was impressed. On Sunday, I went with a friend for lunch and again loved it. The food was really, really yummy...creative without being over the top. We had the wood fired pork belly and the pumpkin dish as a side...both were delicious. The service too was friendly and relaxed. Which is refreshing because I have recently been disappointed that staff at other new, trendy places to go employ staff that are more worried about how they look then about providing friendly customer service. I will definitely return to 3 Blue Ducks yet again!

Food was pretty good but I won’t be rushing back. A few things that were pretty average. Creme brûlée for dessert was quite grainy, unlike the smooth creamy texture you would normally expect. A few things lacking flavour & excitement. I know people love it but with lots of choice around the city, I think I will go somewhere else next time!

We went as a group of eight to celebrate a birthday - 6 had never been to Three Blue Ducks before, 2 had been to TBD at "The Farm" on the way to Byron Bay.
We had a great time. If you are thinking of it as a special event or get together it is great - great food, excellent friendly attentive staff, great atmosphere and setting.
Expect to pay - the evening can be pricey especially if you take on wine but still very good.
If you like TBD Brisbane you have to visit TBD Byron ("The Farm") - two totally different settings, totally different styles, but both with fine food well prepared and presented, good wine, friendly staff, great value, a good times. EXCELLENT !!
