Fly in and land yourself a great meal at Three Blue Ducks
Just the name alone intrigued me - Three Blue Ducks, let alone the food that was to come our way. I was invited by my daughters to try out this exciting 'new' restaurant located at the W Hotel in Brisbane city.
Three Blue Ducks Menu
The Three Blue Ducks is part of a restaurant chain which originates in Byron Bay and was the brainchild of a group of friends who were wanting to share honest real food. They were striving to create interesting dishes with lots of flavour using quality and sustainable local produce. They also have a restaurant in Bronte down in Sydney before they decided to bring their concept and restaurant to Brisbane.

They choose a fabulous spot at the W Hotel on North Quay overlooking the Brisbane River. The restaurant is elegantly arranged and has an air of fine dining even though the real atmosphere is friendly and simple and very welcoming.
We enjoyed a Sunday lunch here a couple of weeks ago and would highly recommend it to others as a place to go.
Then menu was quite varied and easily catered to the different taste and dietary needs whilst at the same time delivering fresh tasty meals. They have large wood fire ovens in their kitchen and you are able to witness the chefs at work preparing your meals as their kitchen is very much open plan. My choice for lunch was the Harissa Pumpkin, turmeric and cashew cream, kale, radish and sauerkraut with birdseed mix for a very reasonable $20.
My son opted for the Spiced Beef Both, shaved brisket and roasted cabbage with Asian herbs again for $20.
My daughter chose the Porchetta, smoked parsnip puree, beetroot and apple salad with fennel granola mustard jus ($38)
The special on the day was the Sunday roast with roast vegetables and a glass of wine for $38, perfect for a cool Winters day.
They have an extensive drink and wine list and I enjoyed the Ducks Rose Spritz whilst taking in the ambience the place had.

The Three Blue Ducks restaurant is open 7 days a week for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. They have a Breakfast Buffet from 6.30 - 10.30 as well as al carte menu from 6.30am to 11am. I have been told that the breakfast buffet is pretty good with lots of fresh, interesting and tasty dishes.
They are also open for dinner from 5.30pm to 10pm.
Parking available at the Hotel for a cost or you could catch Public transport and walk the short distance to North Quay.
This is definitely a place to revisit especially to try out the breakfast spread.
