“Birthday lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

I celebrated my 50th birthday on june 1st with 65 friends & family for lunch. The food, ambience, service & setting was something I will always remember. I had a call from every guest that attended to say that was the best day they had, I think that speaks for itself. They all said they would not hesitate in recommending the mallard duck & they would all return. Infact many are already planning their own functions & are planning on celebrating at the mallard! Thankyou to Alain, Julie & all the staff at the mallard for making this a memorable experience & keep up the perfect food & service. I will be returning on a very regular basis & congratulations on everything you are all doing & I wish you all nothing but the best for your fabulous restaurant. Thankyou all so much, see you soon. Rochelle x

“Lamb kebab with risoni salad”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Beautiful location, great view, attentive service, personal touch by owner, attention to detail, and the food was a beautiful warm lunch with salad, subtle flavours. We took my mother in law here for mother's day lunch. I will definitely come back and recommend it to others. Looks like a nice place for a small functions as well.

“Great meal, lovely setting, great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

Six of us went to this lovely place yesterday for girls' lunch and had a great time once. Menu small and simple, nothing too exciting but nice selection. Very busy on a Sunday lunchtime and therefore pretty noisy and a bit of a wait for meals to arrive with several large tables around us (hens' lunch; big family birthday parties). The owner/manager and various wait staff however made a point of checking regularly on our drinks, topping up our water and assuring us that we hadn't been overlooked. This is a small gesture that makes a huge difference if there's a bit of a wait, and we were all impressed and felt well looked-after. Meals were well worth the wait: generous servings; great presentation; lovely fresh salads with tasty light dressings. My lamb skewers (recommended by a friend who always orders them when she goes) were scrumptious: beautifully tender chunks of tender charred lamb over salad greens with pine nuts, cherry tomatoes, risoni and gorgeous light tasty dressing. Friends had barramundi, (thick & juicy); and calamari (tender, light crispy coating) and all were delighted with their meals. Saved room for desserts and glad we did: crème brulee (yum), lemon meringue, apple & pear crumble and sticky date pud. Although fairly run-of -the-mill standards, these were all beautifully executed and presented. Lovely individual small pots or tarts meant that we came away feeling comfortable & happy, not uncomfortably full!
Wine list is small but adequate and the house wines by the glass were very nice. I would definitely recommend Mallard Duck as the go-to place if you're wanting to show off our Swan Valley to visitors: beautiful setting overlooking large pond with ducks, greenery and the odd alpaca across the water, and of course lovely fresh tasty local food beautifully presented.
