Excellent, attentive service and food was spot on. Nothing was too much trouble. Ambient atmosphere and lighting. A little on the pricey side but when the service and food is good I don't mind paying a little more. Would definitely return .

Came here for dinner after recommended by friends who couldnt fault it. Its very scary that this is one of the 'top' places to dine in Ballarat with food this quality. The service I must say was really good, our waitress was really friendly and professional. We ordered entree and mains. I ordered sweet potato gnochi with 'blue cheese', more... More

Why haven't we been before? That's what I keep asking myself? We have this excellent restaurant and we hadn't been before! We really had been missing out! The service was excellent, the young lady that waited on us was never without a smile and certainly knew her job! We didn't have a booking but they were able to find us... More

We really enjoyed our meal here, prices are above average and you don't get a massive feed.. But the food was awesome. A great place to go for a special occasion.

We walked in for dinner on a Monday night and were greeted with a smile. "No booking ? No problem - yes we have a table." The 2 waitresses, Tammy & Cherie, were very pleasant, even though the restaurant started to fill up. The 2 girls handled the tables and guests with ease and a smile. The food was superb... More

Have visited this restaurant twice lately and both times have had the lunch special. The gnocchi is very memorable, that's why I went back again. They have a lunch special with a glass of wine under $20. On reading the dinner menu I will be returning with my husband for sure.

We had dinner here with friends on the Saturday of the Labour Day Weekend and it was lovely. The menu is nice, it has a lovely atmosphere and the staff are really wonderful and always up for a joke. They offer good service so it is well worth a visit

My partner and myself dined at Red Peppa recently and found the atmosphere, food and service to be amazing. Upon walking into the restaurant (which harnesses an intimate atmosphere with subtle lighting) we were promptly greeted and shown our table. It was a few years since I last visited Red Peppa so I was unsure what to expect meal wise.... More
