What a pleasant way to spend lunch on Christmas Eve. The service great and food was lovely. The only complaint was the sun shining in through the window - and the waitress soon sorted that out. Can’t wait to go back in February.

Since starting to work in Carrickfergus in 2016 and then moving here in 2019 The Windrose has fast become my favourite local. The food, service and ambience are always first class not to mention those spectacular views. Lockdown has been difficult for everyone but in the periods that The Windrose has been able to open I have felt entirely safe and never had a sense of over-crowding. The Marina Restaurant upstairs is the crowning glory and I love bringing friends and family to enjoy the experience. I hope to visit many more times in 2021 when we are able to put Covid-19 behind us.

I only had one problem and that was being asked to leave after an hour and a half after being told that the table was booked for people after us.We are supposed to get 2 hours at the table and this made me feel very rushed and uncomfortable

Good atmosphere given necessary restrictions. Fantastic food, fillet steak was the best I’ve ever had. Really enjoyable meal, good wine list.

We had a lovely meal, it was a company Xmas meal. The staff were so friendly and fab customer service! The atmosphere was more to do with Covid not the Windrose's fault! i also ate there on Friday which was perfect too! Jacqui

We were upstairs in the Marina restaurant. The food (beautiful), service (excellent) and ambience (ahhhhhh) are just perfect. Highly recommended. The covid-19 restrictions are well adhered to, I didn't feel that anyone was encroaching on my space.

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.
