A good menu with attentive, friendly service. Our group of 7 had no complaints about the choices & the food was excellent. Unfortunatly as the night progressed so did the noise level increase. I expect most people accept this but we find it detracts from the overall experience. Definitly worth a try.

Red Peppa went out of their way to create a special menu matched to regional wines from Peter Leake's Kimbarra Vineyard. The tasting plate received rave reviews from our table. I opted for two scrumptiously fresh oysters gently topped with a light 'seafoam'.. The taste of the ocean clung to the palate. Perfect accompaniment to the Riesling which was surprisingly... More

$40 for a steak main.......which was very average. Desert ok. Would not go back. Try the Mallow instead. Menu is to broad. Maybe suggest focus on doing three/four signature dishes which are worth the cash.

Located in the Main Street of Ballarat. Fit out is good, but that's where it ended. We were one of two small groups in the restaurant. Service was slow. I ordered a steak medium and it came out well done. The colour was grey and I took one bite and had to send it back. It was like rubber. I... More

This is quite a nice restaurant and Ballarat is very short of these! The food is OK - desserts are definitely very good although mains and entrees are not so good. The service is pleasant but slow and the wait staff are not attentive to what is going on. We went on a quiet night so I would worry about... More

We ate at the Red Peppa on a Monday night while staying at the Novotel in Creswick on the basis of good reviews. Although the restaurant was quiet it certainly lived up to its reputation. Excellent lamb rack with gnocchi and a chicken dish with dried fruit that was also very tasty. The service was friendly and understated and the... More

Our waitress, a lovely French lady, Corrine, made sure we were well taken care of and service was impeccable. The menu was awesome, lots of unusual and unique menu items that were mouthwatering.

Another visit to Red Peppa and another lovely experience. The service is always fabulous, fast and friendly at Red Peppa and the food is consistently delicious. The gnocchi is amazing; light and delicious. The lamb shank with goats cheese was an interesting combination which I really enjoyed. And as for the chocolate pudding for dessert AMAZING!
