Lovely Lunch

Have been to Red Peppa many times and it never disappoints. Had the Thai curry, very tasty. Staff friendly and efficient as usual.

Disappointed with this restaurant as the prices indicate a more fine dining experience. We order the rib eye steak which was supposed to be slow cooked, so ordering to your liking was not an option; not that it was an issue, I was looking forward to a steak being slow cooked which means the meat should just fall away from...

Red Peppa had a new menu and it was a bit rocky. The special curry was not available and the rib eye was substituted with a scotch fillet. Wine list good but ran out of a couple of wines. Entrees lacking in presentation. Pork Belly and Japanese Chicken boring and unappetising to look at. Tasted ok. Rockling main course was... More

Yeah. Sometimes it's called Red Pepper, which is confusing. but Red Peppa is the place. I was there today. Sitting outside in the garden was very pleasant. You are caressed by a warm breeze, and invited to share a fountain and a herb garden and a lovely old grape vine. The external area is all old walls, maybe 100 years... More

My husband and I visited Red Pepper on a Monday night, it was one of only a few restaurants in Ballarat open on a Monday. We have eaten here before for lunch and had lovely meals. Our meals this time were lacking. I ordered the fish of the day, which was Rockling. A firm fish, but cooked correctly a lovely... More

I spent the day at Ballarat and went to Red Peppa for lunch. I selected a green Thai curry with seafood. The curry was beautiful, with fresh seafood and crispy asparagus among the rice and veg, yum. The surprise was the price of $21 which included a glass of wine. This brought the cost of the food to around $15,... More
