We went with the 50% offer and we loved the experience, however had we paid full price we would have been a lot fussier about the value for money. Entrees were delicious: saffron spaghettini and egg pappardelle, but the mains were a little of a let down: the fish and chips was blend and the ingredients in the salmon somehow did not complement each other.

Last night we celebrated my best friend's 40h birthday at Ripples - a place we had all longed to experience. It didn't disappoint with romantic raindrop views of sparkling lights and a dark ocean bay. The food was an absolute highlight - meatballs for entree and some amazing mains - mine was lamb which was absolutely delicious. The cocktails were decadent and we all came away beaming after an entertaining and attentive waiter pampered us all night!

About Ripples at Chowder Bay

Waterfront wonder Ripples Chowder Bay, located in Mosman, is on the Taronga Zoo to Balmoral foreshore walk, and offers magnificent views of the famous Clifton Garden’s Bay. Its opening marked a momentous occasion, as it was the first time in over hundred years that the general public could enter this historic space, once reserved for secret military operations to defend Sydney Harbour. Featuring a Modern Australian menu with European influences, Head Chef Kristian Gamble uses only the freshest seasonal produce to create simple flavoursome dishes. Diners have a wonderful selection of share plates, pastas and more substantial mains to choose from. This spectacular waterfront restaurant is open for breakfast on Saturdays and Sundays, lunch 7 days and dinner Friday-Saturday. (we love coming at lunch time so you can fully appreciate the beautiful outlook). Perfect for dining with a group, a special celebration or a nice romantic meal for two, Ripples Chowder Bay has become one of the top favourites amongst Mosman, Cremorne and Neutral Bay locals. Best Dish: Yamba prawns with garlic, chilli, lemon, parsley, smoked capsicum powder.
