My husband and I stayed as we were attending a wedding reception close by. Booking the restaurant was very easy. Staff were attentive and friendly. The Salmon Niçoise salad was delicious and the steak perfectly cooked.

    Wanted to go for a long time and eventually booked online a Sunday morning and went at 1230hrs same day...nice decor and pleasant waitress/waiter but pretty basic/ bare tables with little to no atmosphere at the time could have done with some background music e.g.....food was nicely presented and served however nothing startling and have had better cheaper in nicer surroundings locally without an hours drive each way. we are in the bar as restaurant only seems to open at night so maybe that's better?
    Years ago we are at Ducks when it was in Eyrie Place in Edinburgh and it was much more atmospheric and delicate foideise so maybe we got the wrong impression at Aberady...certainly not as good as we anticipated/ accepted

    Very disappointing.

    Everything about the meal was good, but I would have preferred to have an a la carte option.
    The waitress was a joy.

    Not quite as expected. On previous visits we had been in the dining room but this is no longer open at lunch time. However, as usual, the service was first class as was the food.

    My experience at Ducks was everything I hoped it would be. The bar is quite cosy and full of real character. They also stock a fine range of malt whiskies.
    For my evening meal I had a beautiful soup of the day, steak sandwich and chips. This was first class, and service was very efficient.
    The staff, particularly the bar tender Tomas, were cultured charming and caring. They were friendly and accommodating to a lone traveller such as myself. I will definitely return here in the future.

    The a la carte meal was of Michelin star quality. It was exquisite in its detail, taste and texture.
