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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
