The Blue Duck

Sitting prominently atop a sand dune above North Cottesloe Beach, The Blue Duck has become a local institution over the years. With stunning panoramic views of the Indian Ocean that extend all the way to Rottnest Island, it is easy to see why this is a hotspot amongst local residents. From the moment you walk into the restaurant the views of the Indian Ocean dominate your view. No matter what time of day you choose to visit, the views can be simply breathtaking.


The menu at The Blue Duck can be described as contemporary Australian with a focus on fresh ingredients and local produce. The breakfast menu is well-priced and features your everyday favourites like smashed avo as well as surprise twists like the brekky souvlaki. For all the coffee lovers out there you will be pleased to learn that The Blue Duck uses a blend from local roaster, Darkstar Coffee. If coffee isn’t your thing then the Oreo hot chocolate is definitely worth a shot!

The lunch and dinner menu is quite varied and is sure to have something for everyone. Being so close to the ocean means that several seafood dishes feature on the menu. Other options include pasta, Dardanup lamb and confit duck leg. If you feel like something lighter then opt for one of the tasty salads on the menu. The dessert menu looks delicious and the Eton mess with lime curd and strawberries sounds amazing.


Sitting and watching the sunset is made infinitely better when you have a drink in-hand. The good news is that The Blue Duck has a great drinks menu to choose from. There is a wide range of beers to choose from with several local brews on tap. If wine is more your fancy then you will be served by an extensive wine list that can be ordered by either the glass or the bottle. Some warm summer nights call for a cocktail and diners will be pleased to see a good variety on offer, including two signature house cocktails. The Blue Duck is available to hire as a function venue and with views of the sun setting beyond Rottnest Island we can easily see why people would choose to hold their wedding reception here.

A relaxed atmosphere, great service and a fabulous vista all combine to make The Blue Duck a fabulous spot for breakfast, lunch or dinner. So grab some friends and head down soon for a bite to eat and a drink as you watch the sun dip below the horizon of the Indian Ocean, you won’t regret it.
