The Blue Duck used to have a great reputation. We booked for lunch without reading recent reviews (our mistake) and were sadly disappointed. The food was not very well cooked and took a long time to come out the kitchen despite only a couple of tables dining. Also misleading descriptions in the menu, ungenerous portions, and a rather unkempt look... More

We had been going to the Blue Duck for years but today we were sadly disappointed in the service (inexperienced and uncaring at best) and the food. The Paella was not fresh at all but overly reheated and served luke warm, dry and with uncooked rice kernels throughout it. It was very unpleasant and I was not able to eat... More

Offhand and unfriendly staff - really disappointing as we used to frequent this place years ago when it was a cafe. The new doors obstruct the sea view and it is the most unwelcoming place we came across in our months holiday.

We chose Blue Duck for our October Wedding. To put it simply, it was spectacular. The view was stunning, the food unbelievable and all in all, was everything we'd ever hoped for. A very special thank you needs to go to Jodie, who guided us through the process in a very easy and relaxed fashion. She also took charge of... More

Stopped by for dinner one night without a reservation which was not a problem. Friendly welcome from the waitress and directed to a table overlooking the beach. Extensive choice with a reasonable selection of seafood. Opted for the fish cakes and grilled snapper. Both were superb and followed up with a cheese platter – nice to have the option to... More

Was once THE place to eat by the sea in Cottesloe but times change things. It's gone off the pace: too much local competition perhaps? Or it's just lost its mojo? Rumour has it that they even tried a buffet for a few weeks! Definitely very family friendly now.

After several disappointing meals in Perth we tried this restaurant and whilst not as bad as the others, it still was not great. I don't understand why with fantastic produce, cafes can't provide inventive cooking that rivals the eastern states. They certainly should be given the prices they charge.

The Blue Duck was loud and busy inside mid-morning, and the wait staff seemed a bit harried occasionally. It was hard to get their attention for coffees later, which wasn’t that surprising given the size of the indoor dining area. The breakfast menu held no surprises, but there were freshly squeezed juices available and our jars of The Hulk were... More

We've dined here many times - always happy with the good quality food and coffees, whether for breakfast, afternoon drinks, lunch or dinner. Sunsets are lovely. One fav is the calamari - try it!

Very disappointing to arrive, on time, for a table (the booking made the day before) only to find the doors locked and a sign indicating that the place was closed for a private function! We accept that mistakes can happen, but would have appreciated a phone call to save us the wasted journey. We found a table elsewhere, phoned the... More
