The food was so delicious - we loved it. Great service. Will be back!
Cheers for the 5 star review! I'll pass on your lovely comments to our team and we look forward to seeing you again at Three Blue Ducks Brisbane!
The bread was cold and slightly stale and the “butter” looked runny and tasted like margarine. The sparkling wine was also unpalatable to my taste - so yeasty! The service was lovely and friendly however and the location was great.
Quite expensive for what it is.
Probably about my 8th visit and it never disappoints!!
Hi Kerry! Thanks for the 5 star review! We do appreciate you being a real ducks fan and returning to our restaurant for your celebrations and general bookings. I'll pass on your great comments to our team and we will be without a doubt seeing you again sometime soon!
Great food and service. Third visit and will be back again for sure. Happily recommend friends to try Three Blue Ducks for themselves.
Hi Glen and cheers for the 5 star review. Thanks for being a duck fan and returning to us for your third visit! We hope to see you and your friends here again for the holiday season so they can experience our delicious dishes and great views!
Lovely food, we had the seafood platter and it was top shelf. They have a great ethos to their food sustainability. Service was very friendly and the only knock is you can hear the freeway.
Thanks for the stellar review Richard! Our passion is for a more sustainable and locally sourced menu highlighting quality produce of the season and we are glad to hear that you recognised this throughout the menu. Thanks for being a part of our passion and we love that you enjoyed our seafood platter. I'll pass on your great comments to our team and we look forward to seeing you again.
Food was deelish. Kangaroo Tataki was tiny for $$ but tasted great. Bread and Hummus tasty and Lamb was huge and the highlight.
Hi Steve and thanks for the review. Our premium grade kangaroo tataki is sustainably sourced and full of flavour and we're happy to hear you enjoyed this newly introduced holiday season dish. We're happy to hear you enjoyed all the menu options and thanks again for your great comments and I'll pass these onto our team. We hope to see you again soon, maybe to try our breakfast menu!
Food was excellent however the vegan main and vegetable side dishes were not hot enough.

In terms of some of the dishes you were served, we do appreciate you letting us know and I'll pass on your comments to the team. We do look forward to you dining with us again at Three Blue Ducks.
We had the lamb and it was amazing , also It was my girlfriend’s birthday and they had a card from them on arrival , little things make a massive difference and we are so happy with our night , definitely recommend for any event
Hi Steve and cheers for the 5 star review! We're glad you loved our Lamb Shoulder and we're happy your girlfriend and yourself had a memorable night! We look forward to having you again at Three Blue Ducks for another special occasion.
This was a fantastic experience. Started off with cocktails - Old Fashioneds and some fruity thing I randomly selected for my wife - I ended up with 2 more OFs in the hand to go along with a delicious meal. Chilli mussels and flat bread - just fantastic. Perfect view, formal but fun setting and staff. Well done - will come again for my birthday in January. Top stuff.
Hi Tim and thanks for taking your time give us a great review and your feedback! Three Blue Ducks is more about sharing great food and conversations with a less white tablecloth setting and we're glad to hear you enjoyed the ducks dining experience. We can't wait to have you again in January for your birthday celebrations and we'll have your Old Fashioned waiting for you!
Delicious, light and fresh food. I wanted to try everything on the menu.
Cheers Will! Our passion is to create simple but rough around the edges style dishes that burst with big flavour and we're happy you loved our menu. We'd love to have you again at Three Blue Ducks to possibly try our our new holiday menu. We're sure you'll love it. Thanks again.
Fabulous food, atmosphere and views! A great place to eat if you are visiting Brisbane - and if you live here!

Hi Christine and thank you for your 5 star review! We pride ourselves in our interesting and tasty flavour dishes and we love that you enjoyed our menu and view! We look forward to welcoming you again in the near future.
The food was excellent, the service was even better. I have eaten at a lot of restaurants some international and I would have the say the waiter that we experienced on the night was just the best. Friendly had all of the information and was very attentive.
Hi Karen! We really appreciate your 5 star review! We take pride in our service and quality of food at Three Blue Ducks and we're glad you had a memorable experience. I'll pass on your great comments to our team (and yes we can also give your waiter your feedback too!) and we look forward to seeing you again!
I don't know if we expected too much from the reviews read online.
We often enjoy seafood when we eat out and have tried many levels of quality but this was an all-time low.
We ordered the seafood platter but had to drown it in the mayo to make it taste a bit, the potato salad had so much an off taste that we left them and enjoyed the bread.
The service was also quite poor. They quickly got us seated and a drink but then forgot all about us. Had to wave several times to be able to order, get a new plate for the shells when it was full and to get a new one because they never returned with a fresh one.
When we wanted to pay it was the same show and took so long that we both had the chance to go to the toilet and wait as well.
A pity because we had read and heard good things and because it was for an anniversary. Maybe it was just a big off day for them.
They need to amp it up given the reputation and price. Put some tablecloths or at least placemats on the tables. It looked like a cafeteria.
Always amazing food and service. Great prices and the views of Brisbane river are great
Hi Larissa! Thanks for the 5 star review! We love that you had a great experience with us and happy you enjoyed the magical views of the Brisbane city river! We look forward to welcoming you back for our holiday season!
Amazing restaurant and only $25 for valet parking!
Generous servings, good variety and very enjoyable! The view over the river was just perfect!
Will definitely revisit 😊
Hi VickiM! Thank you for the great review! We're happy to hear you enjoyed looking over at the stellar views of the Brisbane river while dining with us at Three Blue Ducks. I'll pass on your great comments to the team! We hope we see you again soon!
Very happy and attentive staff , beautiful food presentation, very generous portion sizes and every dish was a taste sensation. Had the Lamb shoulder to share and it was simply amazing. Extremely good value for money and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a special dinner.
Will be back ASAP
Hi Justin! Thanks for your great review! We're happy you had quality service from our team and enjoyed our popular Lamb Shoulder! We'll be sure to pass on your great comments to our team and we look forward to seeing you again! I recommend trying our Fermented Chilli Glazed Chicken next time!
Had always wanted to go to the Ducks and was excited to have the chance at the W Brisbane. I perused the menu online numerous times trying to work out what I would order.
The day arrived and I learned two of my choices were no longer offered due to “ethos” and “sustainability”. My wife and I were constantly referred to as guys by the epitome of the Barista Hipster. Not a good start and then it crashed. Our waitress arrived and clearly had left her brain at home. To order 2 glasses of Chardonnay and a bottle of Shiraz was mind numbingly painful. We did manage to order without a hiccup and our small plates arrived. Finished our Chardonnay and a Herculean effort took place to get the cork out of the Shiraz. Our waitress was supervising the wine opening and I did not realize our $70 bottle of wine that I tasted had been poured into the Chardonnay glasses. No effort to change the glasses or apologize but Hipster boy to the rescue who replaced the glasses but nothing else.
The food was outstanding with the shoulder of lamb exceeding all expectations. I would describe the food and flavours as amazing. Finished the meal and time for the bill. Where is she hiding? Not to be seen. Possible may have thought her brain was nearby. Finished up joining the other customers, sorry “guys” who couldn’t pay the bill and had to settle with Hipster Boy at the front desk. He was most apologetic about the service issue and took the 2 glasses of Chardonnay off the bill and gave us his impression of how difficult it was to get good service nowadays. Some more references to ethos and the compulsory by now “guys”.
I don’t need to tell you the damage poor service does to a business especially when some very accomplished chefs have created such great food.
Absolutely amazing food. Cooked so well! Great service but a bit hard to understand our waiter. Also delicious cocktails! We will be back for sure.
Thanks for your comments Selinam! I'll make sure to pass them onto our team. We're very pleased to hear you enjoyed our menu and great service. We’d love to have you back sometime soon to try our new holiday dishes and beverages!
Sensational seafood ( Moreton bay bugs were the highlight) . Would highly recommend
Thanks for the 5 star review! We're happy the Moreten bay bugs were a stand out for you! We'd love to have you back to try some of our great seafood items from our wood fired oven!
Consistently excellent quality food and atmosphere.
Cheers for the 5 star review, Stacey! Thank you for your comments; I'll pass these on to our team at Three Blue Ducks and we hope to see you again for the holiday season!
The mains were great as were the desserts, entrees were quite small for their price. Overall a very enjoyable experience
Hi Subs and thanks for your comments! We're happy you enjoyed our mains and desserts and we'll pass on your feedback to our team. We look forward to having you back in the near future.
Got things on my plate that I dislike intensely and they weren't on the menu. So didn't enjoy my main at all. Waitress was not great at all.
Exquisite food. Just a bit disappointed with the ambiance. Basic tables and chairs. Like a canteen/school refectory.
Hi Anne and thanks for taking your time to speak with us and thank you for your honest feedback. We'll pass on your comments to our team. We're glad you enjoyed our menu and we'd love to have the opportunity to welcome you back soon.
Food was divine as always. Service was great however I feel the dinner staff were flustered due to potentially being under staffed.
Breakfast was lovely. Great coffee.
Hi Mel! Thanks for your great review and we are glad to hear you had the chance to dine with us for dinner and breakfast! We love that you enjoyed our single origin coffee and happy you enjoyed your overall Three Blue Ducks experience. We'll be sure to pass on your comments to the team and we hope to see you again soon.
The swordfish was amazing.
Very attentive service.
Great rose wine selection.
Thanks for a great experience.

We loved it all. The food was absolutely beautiful. Would definitely eat here again.
Cheers JennyS, we love that you enjoyed our food and your overall experience at Three Blue Ducks! We can't wait to have you back!
Food was unbelievable. Amaizing how such clasics could be presented in such a uniwue way yet been concentional..but so memorable.
Thanks GregM for taking your time to review us! We're happy to hear that you had a great experience and love that you have enjoyed our honest cooking and suppliers. We look forward to having you back again soon!
Excellent service and beautiful food and presentation and generous portions. Would highly recommend and we will definitely return. We were made very welcome from start to finish by all staff.
Hi SandraM! Thanks for the 5 star review! It's great to hear you enjoyed our big flavour dishes and had a memorable experience. We hope to see you back soon for our new holiday menu!
Food was amazing and I was surprised by the portion size. After starters and mains we couldn’t handle dessert as well.
Will definitely be going back!
Thanks AinsleyV! We love that you had a great time enjoying our menu. I'll be sure to pass on your comments to our team and we look forward to welcoming you back for dessert.
Great location and atmosphere. Starters delicious. Small serves. Would have liked some sort of chips as a side for the steak. Definitely needed to order more sides for main. Waiter may have forgotten our mains as it took a long time (almost 40mins) to come out. Overall a good experience but not as amazing as we were expecting.
Fabulous food!! Service wasn’t as good as our past visit. Bit loud with the road noise.
Hi NatM, thanks for the 4 stars! Although we are sorry to hear our service didn't meet up to your expectations. We love that you enjoyed our menu in your overall experience.
Enjoyed the whole experience. Food was delicious and service very attentive.
I asked the Maître d’ which was the better wine having picked two to have. They did not know and said they would ask someone and come back. Still waiting for her to comeback. Asked another waiter and he did not know either, totally useless. Eventual just picked one. The restaurant was not busy and staff were NOT attentive. Did not fill the wine glasses, did not refill water glasses, did not clear plates when finished did not ask for desert orders. Had to ask staff every time, NOT proactive in their service. Claiming to be Five-Star, would give it one star. Overall a terrible experience and would not recommend this place. I would expect the rest of the hotel to be of a poor service standard.
Since our last visit a few months ago the improvement was outstanding! The service was attentive but not invasive. Did was great and enjoyed sharing the small plates as entrees. All over a lovely evening was enjoyed by all the family. Thank you
We had a fantastic meal here and we chose everything that our lovely waiter suggested to us and loved every bite, we will definitely be back!
Hi AleishaB! Thanks for the great review! We will go ahead a let our team know about your comments and we look forward to seeing you soon!
On the pricey side, especially the drinks. $58 for a bottle of house wine...
Time limit on booking so order quickly otherwise the over attentive staff will make you feel rushed, so definitely not a relaxing vibe.
Upside, food was beautiful, setting was lovely and the staff very polite.
Would probably go back just for dinner on a special occasion, not a catch up with old friends.
Food is ok, most of the dishes were fine, but fish was way over cooked and under seasoned. When mentioned to a waiter he just said “Yeah” and no action or at least a simple sorry I mentioning it to the chef.
Thank you for your review! We're disheartened to hear that your experience with your meal was not up to expectations, this is not an experience we pride ourselves in. I'll will pass on your comments to the team and we look forward to having the opportunity to welcome you back again soon.
A fabulous location & view towards Southbank ...a small but thoughtful menu with plenty of variety to choose ...we enjoyed the BBQ octopus & spammer crab betel leaves for our entrees which we shared amongst three of us. The 8 hour shoulder of lamb looked tender & delicious & it was - we ordered a side of roasted potatoes and chargrilled broccolini to complement the meat & accompanying zucchini squash salad - all beautifully cooked & presented ... there were leftovers! .... purely as an indulgence we shared a couple of the desserts ! Good portions & yum. We enjoyed our Shiraz and found the waitstaff helpful and cheerful. There was some low level noise from the street but that is part of city dining but we loved looking across the river to the lights of Southbank. Our only small negative comment was the background music was ‘meh’ and we felt not particularly vibey for the restaurant .... but we will certainly return ... city prices but good value for money .... nice ambience & decor !
Thanks for taking your time to speak with us; BrissieViv. We're glad you love the location and view of Three Blue Ducks looking over the beautiful Brisbane river and Southbank precinct. We will give our chefs and waiters your positive feedback and we love to hear that you had an overall exceptional experience with us. We look forward to having you again at Three Blue Ducks.
