Casual lunch, not my choice of venue but I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food, wine and service - of course the view is spectacular.

After all these years The Blue Duck still impresses. Granted the view on a sunny day adds to the experience 10 fold but the food was above and beyond. Service was great. The tasting platter displayed a lovely sample of different tastes, textures and colours....More
