This place is nicely tucked away at the water end of rippleside park offering great views of the bay. The menu was different and very tasty. The staff were attentive with great personalities. Definately worth a return visit.

My friends and I got together for lunch before Christmas at Ripples and we were very disappointed with the food and menu , It was very expensive for the size of the serves and we won't be going back there again.

The food we ordered was nice but it took about 15 minutes for our coffees to come, let alone the actual food. This place is very understaffed. Not good enough for a Saturday.

We had a table next to the window looking out over the bay. Magnificent. The meal was 5 hat and the service excellent. Nothing was a problem. Highly recommend.
