Competing in the breakfast space (using the current jargon) in Sydney is tough. Ripples scores well, not for innovative dishes but for fairly standard fare executed very well. It's surprising how many places serve lukewarm eggs and bacon. Ripples avoids this trap. Coffee is very good, toast all the usual stuff done well. And, except for the fact that it... More

We made reservations for lunch and I really think we had the best seat (best view & quiet corner) in the restaurant. The servers were very friendly and fairly efficient despite the full house and all our requests were met quickly and with a smile. We had the antipasto board ($28), stuffed zucchini flowers ($20) and grilled whole snapper with... More

We had a great night here and enjoyed not only the good company but also the views. The food was very nice and although not cheap where else can you have such an amazing view with nice wine.

I was there for a business dinner. The location is great, the food was average. The service was very slow and the waiters seemed not too care too much. We asked 3 times to have some chilli sauce then we gave up. You basically pay for the view.

Was here with family and it was great for a casual family meal. Nice view of the bridge and good service. But the food was mediocre. Tasteless fish and chips. Tasteless salad. Still--was great to be with family in a lovely setting.

Great location with decent service and food to enjoy stunning views of the bridge, the opera and the harbour while enjoying a drink/meal. Must reserve a table. Recommend.

We ate at Ripples on our last night in Sydney, the weather wasn't brilliant and so the awnings were up to keep out the rain that had lashed the city during the day but we were still able to enjoy the view looking back at the city from across the harbour. We all ate the fish and chips it was... More

Visited this establishment last week for a small birthday dinner - was told the restaurant was chosen for the view but unfortunately the weather was a little on the moody side so the view consisted of a mere blur of city lights as seen through wet plastic sheeting. I sensed all was not well when the waitress greeted me at... More

Overpriced and less than average food; poorly trained, unhelpful and inefficient wait staff; and we were charged exorbitantly for all the extras they could add to the bill. But a great view. So we discussed where we will go for our next lunch while enjoying the view as we will be unlikely to ever return to Ripples. I had the... More

Booked on line and they were very keen to ensure we were coming. There were numerous emails and even text messages reminding me and to confirm or my booking would be canceled, that was the only negative of the whole event. Booked the early session as we wanted to see the sunset over this wonderful harbour city, being situated right... More
