Really enjoyed it

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

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.

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

The restaurant is a bit too dark inside, So we moved outside. The food was very good and the waitress understood gluten free so that was nice. Pricey but worth it. 3 of us 190 dollars this was for starters, drinks and main. Glad we ordered extra sides as would not have been full up as not enough vegetables on... More

So we've visited Red Peppa in Ballarat three times in the past couple of months. Thought we would do a review until we'd tried it a couple of times as experiences can vary so much! Well it's safe to say that this little restaurant is exceptional in all aspects - every meal we've had has been so delicious, beautifully presented... More

We dined here and I believe this was the best meal we have ever had in Ballarat. I had the scallops and then the salmon, and both were delivered beautifully and cooked to perfection- it was a true restaurant meal! Well done!

Absolutely packed for New Year's Eve, but the service was still fantastic and the food reasonably priced and delicious.

A family gathering Christmas Eve at Red Peppa could not be faulted in any way and thoroughly recommend this restaurant. We had several food allergies amongst our group and staff were extremely helpful in catering to our needs. Entrees of Saganaki, Pork belly with scallops, duck pancakes were superb. All Mains were delicious, inc steaks, lamb, tortellini and salmon. Nice... More

Food was phenomenal, water was constantly being refilled which we didn't ask for which was great! The food was rather pricey but didn't disappoint. The lady serving us had an attitude and seemed like she really didn't want to help us, didn't see her smile once. The restaurant was very clean but lighting was too dark.
