Description: Perched above the sand dunes of the famous Cottesloe Beach, The Blue Duck is an iconic restaurant that has uninterrupted, panoramic views over Rottnest Island and the Indian Ocean. This busy restaurant is the heart of the local community and the place to go for those in the know. With its relaxed atmosphere and friendly professional service, it's the place to enjoy a coffee or just a glass of champagne. Catch up with friends and watch a glorious sunset over a turquoise ocean enjoying dinner with a beer or bottle of wine.

The outdoor balcony overlooking the beach is obviously pleasant. And the coffee is decent.

So why no higher than 3 out of 5? Well, if you can't get out on the balcony the indoor is not great. The decor is basic and they should make a lot more effort with it.

More effort please is a comment that applies to the service too. We asked what cakes they had available. The reply was "orange, carrott, caramel and another one which I can't remember". The cakes are not on display so you can't check yourself. There wasn't a hint that she was going to find out for us.

A really great Sunday morning eat out for the family. Local surf club entertainment enhances the mood along the sandy beach.

We ate breakfast here twice. Once on a very busy Sunday morning and also on a very much quieter midweek morning. Good food, coffee and service each time. Nice view from decking. We liked it.

Five of us Ladies had a birthday lunch last Friday and we were all very impressed. We had read mixed reviews - however - decided that the venue location right on the beach would be a great place to celebrate. We started with the mixed platter to share and it was divine. Quite adequate as sometimes there is not much to choose from - with plenty of bread for the lovely dips (Beetroot dip was divine). We all opted for the Thai Chicken Curry and we all enjoyed it. It was a lovely afternoon and the service was excellent with ensuring our water and drinks were topped up. Espresso Martinis were lovely too. Thanks for a great afternoon - well be back.
