Booked for a business meeting - like the email interaction that allowed for changed numbers etc. The ambience and location is great - but the views are a bit less by the plastic awnings on the outer seating area - would be great on a warmer night or lunch. The food was great - if a somewhat limited selection. The... More

Great great spot. Day time or night.Full of people..amazing view..it's worth it! Nice restaurants with this great view..you can cross the river by ferry from Circular Quay to Milsons Point. It's also possible to cross the bridge by foot. The best time is before 1am, when the main lights are switch off.

The Lamb shoulder here was really good. it;s a large serve, so be prepared to share. the only disappointment was the lack of wines available, and the suggested red wine be the waiter, was not the tastiest with our meal.

Ripples is located next to Luna Park with great views of Sydney and the Harbour. A 5 minute ferry ride from the city to Milsons Point puts you right as the front door of Ripples.

Took some overseas visitors to Ripples. More casual dining with great views. Good variety of food choices. Kids menu offers enough variety to please most kids. BYO wine at $16 per bottle corkage. Food is modern approach but on the pricey side.

We invited friends from Victoria to have lunch with my wife and I and they were blown away by location, service and that we could BYO. Not enough can be said of the opportunity Ripples provides by doing BYO at only $12 corkage per bottle and as soon as they looked at the wines, they offered to decant both bottles!.... More

Go along the ripples and enjoy the view. That's easy to find, by train or naturally by walk on the beautiful harbour bridge. Stay for a coffee or take away. Beautiful!

The staff were incompetent and lacking greatly in service. The staff had never tasted the food and did not know the menu, there were particular staff who were rude and repugnant. My friend and I had the worst dining experience ever. We did however love the food. It was lovely. It is such a shame the wait staff let the... More
