Al fresco dining Ripples Sydney Wharf  
Why waste a day eating indoors when eat al fresco on the wharf overlooking the Harbour Bridge, watch boats pass by and check out exy apartments. On a glorious sunny day half of my family and I went out for lunch at  Ripples Sydney Wharf (56 Pirrama Road Pyrmont) while the other half of my family did their own thang... they missed out big time. Usually I prefer to be seated inside and eat stress-free avoiding the wind, rain, heat and passerby's but Ripples is in the most beautiful space. (They also have awnings and shelter to keep you dry and warm when needed :) )

I think this is my new favourite restaurant to eat outdoors for lunch, I've ALWAYS found the service perfect - they're professional, lovely, spot-on and very attentive. What's even better is their portions - they're very generous with their servings which makes it even more affordable :) You'll see what I mean about portions below - my growing adolescent brother could not finish his Fish & Chips main and my entree would have been enough to fill me up if it wasn't so tasty.

Onion & Cider Soup with Gruyere Toasts

 
Yamba Prawn Tart with Creamed Leek, Feta Cheese and Tomato Salsa
♥ so crispy and creamy with huge prawns omg LOVE

 
Seared Scallops with Pumpkin Tortellini, Boudin Noir & Goats Cheese Sauce
I love my carbs... this was my entree and I had the spaghettini for my main but they were both so good.
The scallops were JUMBO size and OH MY GAWWD the Pumpkin Tortellini was perfection to die for. I wanted more!!

 
Ripples Famous Fish Chips, Homemade Tartare Sauce, Lemon

 
Vongole and Crab Spaghettini
VERY NICE right amount of everything and I loved how it wasn't so saucy - too bad they don't currently have this on their menu

 
Char grilled Beef Tenderloins with Oxtail Ragout

Will definitely be back here to unwind and enjoy really really great food.
