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!

Great food and views. A corner of Sydney many may never have seen. Stunning in all aspects. Have never had a bad meal at this beautiful place. We keep going back.

The resturant manager is very nice. happy for us to change the booking time earlier. Food is ok but would prefer the chef to check carefully with the bone fried fish.

We had a 50% Dimmi deal, so that took our bill down considerably; can be on the pricey side. Amazing service and very enjoyable night thanks to their attention to detail!

Service was good. Food did take a while to come however it was busy. We ordered the beef and pork belly both meals were delicious.

The food was good and we were given a table with a lovely view of the water. It's such a beautiful spot. Unfortunately the night was tainted by a group of loud and obnoxious people who made it difficult to maintain a conversation due to their volume of noise (as well as their offensive language). Their behavior was visibly disruptive to various other customers but unfortunately it did not seem there was any attempted intervention.

One of the best views in Sydney, I highly recommend for people visiting or wanting a special meal out. Choose a sunny day and go for lunch to really enjoy the scenery.

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.

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.
