The service was good - prompt and attentive. The seafood chowder was nice but slightly lacked flavour. The linguini was good. Pleasant atmosphere and plenty of parking.

We have been to Ripples on various occasions and have always found the food to be of high quality and and good value for money along with the service and atmosphere being first class. Added to that there is a fine view across Corio Bay.

Had a family lunch here recently to celebrate a birthday. Lots of options on the menu - breakfast/brunch, burgers or more hearty dishes. Prices ranged from $15 to $35. Service was friendly but casual. Meals were beautifully presented and delicious.

Went to Ripples for Mother's Day breakfast and was very disappointed. Food took too long, was too average and too cold. Breakfast burger looked great on paper but was far from it.

Went to breakfast at Ripples on the Bay last Sunday. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal with great atmosphere and Staff. Would definitely recommend. This was not our first visit and will not be our last great place to dine at any time of the day.
