    Our waiter was very friendly, the food was fantastic and the outdoor setting in the sun was beautiful. We loved our afternoon lunch and would definitely come back again!

    Lovely setting and very attentive staff. Tables are a bit small for shared entrees and bread (first world problems) but overall a nice place for a meal.

    I love Ripples @ Chowder Bay. Great food, great service, wonderful setting with serene views over Chowder Bay. Hard to believe that you are in the middle of Sydney when dining there. Service is always attentive, never have to ask for a refill on the water or wine. Consistently very good.

    This restaurant is in a beautiful location and is well set out within the restaurant itself. The staff were welcoming and mostly attentive. The disappointment of our evening here was the food. The menu read well but when the food was delivered it didn’t meet expectations for the prices they were charging. Very average meals that could be served at any decent pub. Honestly, I would recommend eating here but a lovely spot for coffee or glass of wine by the water.

    Great location for a very warm March night. Food was good a d service was friendly, and busy for the "Covid" season so I am happy for them. We parked the car across the beach for those who worried about paying parking fee. Thank you for a great night.

    Ripples Chowder Bay has a lovely view and is even better at sunset. The food is well thought out and delicious. My only suggestion is to create better vegetarian/vegan options. The wholemeal linguine was a bit on the bland side. Good service.

    The service was super fast and friendly staff. Although I've asked for a candle to be lit (on my partners bday) when I ordered our dessert but it was not delivered. But all good, we are satisfied with the food and good customer service.

About the restaurant

Waterfront wonder Ripples Chowder Bay, located in Mosman, is on the Taronga Zoo to Balmoral foreshore walk, and offers magnificent views of the famous Clifton Garden’s Bay. Its opening marked a momentous occasion, as it was the first time in over hundred years that the general public could enter this historic space, once reserved for secret military operations to defend Sydney Harbour. Featuring a Modern Australian menu with Italian influences, Head Chef Kristian Gamble uses only the freshest seasonal produce to create simple flavoursome dishes. Diners have a wonderful selection of share plates, pastas and more substantial mains to choose from.

Perfect for dining with a group, a special celebration or a nice romantic meal for two, Ripples Chowder Bay has become one of the top favourites amongst Mosman, Cremorne and Neutral Bay locals.
