About The Windrose
Based in Rogers Quay, Carrickfergus, The Windrose Bar and Restaurant has gained a well established reputation for providing an excellent standard of service along with quality and freshly prepared delicious meals.
As well as the highly acclaimed restaurant we have the Marina restaurant boasting of fabulous views making it the ideal location for weddings and other special events. Our experienced management team are fully equipped to help you plan your big day to make sure that everything at the Marina restaurant goes to plan.
In addition to hosting weddings we host a range of events including casino nights, live music and more.
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.
We were not informed we would be seated in a raised area. Having my mum with us who is registered blind this was not ideal. Found this area very dark. Waited at least 40 mins after ordering before receiving any food. Food came but no cutlery. The menu was very limited and although we found something we liked would have preferred more of a choice.
Thank you. Enjoyable evening, window table as requested. See you again.
Delicious food, friendly atmosphere, friendly staff, lovely music. Scenic view so close to the marina. A very nice spot indeed. A very good dining experience. I would certainly go back there again.
I booked afternoon tea for a party of 8. The assortment of sandwiches and range of cakes and scones was excellent. We had more than enough to eat and ended up bringing those items we could not eat at the time, home with us! There was a wide range of hot drinks available and we were offered 'top ups' should we have wanted that during the meal. I would recommend afternoon tea at the Windrose as a good way of socialising informally with family and friends in a welcoming and pleasant environment.
Would have liked more fish options on menu Been several times and my partner enjoys SeaBass which wasn’t on menu
Nice atmosphere, great food and attentive staff
the service was excellent, they catered for a food allergy really well. The steak was great, nice atmosphere. We had a very nice meal and evening. Will definitely be back. Thank you.
Score low for service as a side dish was missed of the order drink order forgotten and no one came to ask if everything ok with your meal. There was a new waiter in training who was very polite and worked hard to give good service.
Great service but slow......
You can find better food if you're prepare to pay more for it, but Windrose food is excellent for the price. The décor is very good although atmosphere was a bit muted at lunchtime on Saturday. Some background music would have been better than SkySport on TV.
One of my fav places! Customer service is amazing! Guy with the glasses always goes above and beyond and even when my non alcoholic cocktail got mixed up the staff apologised and made me a new one and couldn’t have been more apologetic! I’m pregnant so they wanted to make sure it was right! Food amazing also! Couldn’t speak more highly of this place! We always have our girls nights here and travel from all over. Thanks

Was at the windrose yesterday for a work lunch, considering there was 22 of us they breezed through service with not a hitch! Excellent food and the staff are the nicest people and so attentive! Will be organising work days out here in the future!
A lovely New Years Day lunch for 18 of us. Went very smoothly, food was delicious, great value for money. Staff all attentive and pleasant and willing. Looking forward to coming back again.
Had a lovely Boxing Day lunch with the family, food was great and we all felt really at home. Our waitress Amy was excellent and added to our enjoyment. Many Thanks
