Amazing!

We went to the Wild Duck on a Saturday night for our wedding anniversary. The degustation menu was amazing as were the matched wines to go with it. The staff were attentive and the restaurant had a wonderful ambience. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and can't wait to go back.

Our experience here wasn't terrible but it wasn't what we expected from reviews/the price. The food was pretty good but not what I would consider amazing fine dining. The service was poor. Our wait staff were young, awkward and unsure. We understand everyone needs to learn but there didn't appear to be a senior staff member around. Had the staff... More

I've wanted to try the Wild Duck for quite some time, & I finally had an excuse to book & celebrate with my partner but I'm sorry to say it wasn't as good as expected. I planned my dinner around the soufflé I couldn't wait to order for dessert, but the wait for main course was so unacceptably long without... More

We dined at the Wild Duck last night and can recommend it very highly. We arrived quite late (at around 8.45 pm) but the service was still very good. They kindly allowed us to order from the a la carte menu despite Wednesday being a BYO wine/Degustation menu day. Food was very delicious, especially the duck!! The restaurant has a... More

Really enjoyed dinner at the Wild Duck. We visited on a Saturday night when the menu option is degustation only. The seven courses were all amazing with the Cherry Ripe dessert being the highlight for me. The service was attentive and quick with our wine glasses remaining topped up at all times. The restaurant was a little quiet for a... More

Booked for the Saturday night degustation menu. Restaurant was very accomodating when we increased the number of diners last minute. Also very good about accomodating food allergies/preferences. The atmosphere is very intimate and warm. Lots of corners separated off means it's easy to hear the conversation at your table. While we waited a little too long for the first course... More

We celebrated two birthdays and an anniversary and it was the perfect place. The food was beautiful and the atmosphere was warm and sophisticated yet festive. The lemon souffle with coconut ice cream is still on my mind a month later.

We chose the degustation menu to sample a variety of foods on offer. Portion sizes were good. Service was friendly and attentive. Not a cheap night out however a nice place to go for a specialist occasion.

First off, one of the tastiest meals I have ever eaten. We had the two course set lunch menu. (This does change regularly). Everything was perfectly cooked and absolutely dripping with texture and flavor. We had some excellent wines to go with the meal which we followed with added desert and a bottle of Muscat. Meal contained a few pleasant... More
