The South facing Boardwalk Deck is a great place to relax and unwind over a meal or quiet drink. With its awnings and patio heaters it is possible to enjoy the uninterrupted views late into the evening.
I'm sure I would have liked the meal but.... It would have helped if The Windrose was even open....... How on earth can you still take reservations for somewhere that's on lockdown
Our visit just before the hospitality sector was closed for a 2nd time due to Covid19was just as good as always. Food and service is always excellent. We have always felt so safe and well looked after at The Windrose. Can't wait for the reopening!!
We really enjoyed our meal at the Windrose just prior to the introduction of new lockdown rules. Thank you! We will definitely return to the restaurant when the hospitality sector are allowed to reopen.
Great service as always. Just really sad to see them have to close again for 4 weeks due to Covid. Only criticism would be that we would love to see a few more options on menu for children as my two children would be too old for the kids menu and some of the main courses were too fancy for them. Chicken goujons or scampi or roast beef.
Great early supper!
I felt the service was lacking a bit. We asked for a jug of water initially- instead of the waitress saying you don’t do that now- she waited until we had to ask again for the water as she didn’t bring it. Also I asked for a wifi password & explained to the girl who gave me 2=passwords that didn’t work- she just shrugged her shoulders & send it mustn’t be on!!!!!! Not very helpful
Lovely safe yet relaxed atmosphere. Had a lovely meal. Kids gutted that the fish goujons aren’t battered anymore but loved everything else.
friendly staff, very attentive! lovely food too
My dining companion was running horrendously late , the staff were extremely patient on probably the sunniest day in October. Service , given current climate was excellent as was the food.
As usual staff brilliant and food first class as usual definitely be back cant wait lol...
Always lovely food. No better place to be when the sunshines out over the marina.
The service was great and I had no issues while attending the venue.
Thank you to the Windrose staff for a well enjoyable meal and drinks, service was great and food was lovely. nice setting and lovely patio outside looking over the marina... Thanks Vicky.
I use restaurant o a regular basis and find t very good At times service can be slow but I think that is because not enough staff are on Staff that are on are always very pleasant Food good
First time at the Windrose. Always thought it looked old fashioned from the outside and the name, but I couldn't have been more wrong. So modern inside, great view, great service and great food!
Food fabulous Staff fabulous Location fabulous A gem on our doorstep
My haddock & chips in beer batter, the batter was light and not to fatty, but the haddock was an extremely small portion. My son had a burger & chips which was fine, my husband had 1/2 rack of ribs which were okay, the staff were excellent and the restaurant was very clean, I’d say slightly overpriced. The restaurant probably has the best location in Carrickfergus.
Amazing views and great service
Lovely meal,friendly and attentive staff ,great place,very relaxed atmosphere, we had an enjoyable evening
We had a great time at the Windrose and our waitress was lovely and very attentive. Thank you.
Service, and the craic!, we received from our Waiter Peter was fab! He had everyone laughing. Very personal service and would go back because of that alone. Starter and dessert was lovely, however my main let the food down, Chicken Thai green curry, as the chicken was like rubber and tasteless. The curry itself and coconut rice was lovely so I did eat my meal, just left the chicken. Cocktails were also really good. I had the passionfruit martini and gin bramble.
Don't miss out on a superb experience. 👍
Fantastic restaurant with amazing views of the marina. Food never disappoints- always delicious. Friendly & helpful staff delivering a first class service. Can’t wait until our next visit!
Food was fabulous!
