The staff are friendly, the view is great, the service is good but the food is average and the restaurant has a cheap plastic feel to it.

The Blue Duck was a great restaurant in the days of Kim Gamble & I must say I haven’t been since he owned it. I should have kept it that way!!!! My 18 year old son suggested going as we could watch the raging ocean...More
