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.
Initially taken aback by the pre-order & deposit request but we received a fabulous service on arrival & the food was hot, as ordered & very tasty! I would recommend the Windrose for a relaxed family meal or a night out with friends. Very reasonably priced & very adequate portions. Nice touch that they now have their own lager!!
Excellent renovation of the restaurant. Loved it.
Took and hour and 15 minutes to receive our main course and judging by the amounts of complaints for other dinners they where all experiencing the same service as us. Just think another chef would speed up the output of food. Nice decor and surrounding just a shame
Was our wedding anniversary and waitress wished us a happy anniversary and also wrote happy anniversary on receipt which my wife thought was a lovely jester
Great food, great service. Online booking was easy.
Food was excellent, reasonably priced and good variety available on the menu! Atmosphere was also great, very relaxed and chilled. Service was much faster than i expected having taken less than 30min from arriving to food being served.
service was a bit slow at times but staff were friendly and food was nice.
Great service and food in a lovely atmosphere
Very slow service, my wife’s meal was lukewarm, deserts were horrible, we left them. Will not rush back, very dissapointing.
Good food, very friendly atmosphere and good service. Will definitely be back.
excellent 1st class
We were shoved into back left-hand corner because I am in a wheelchair and there doesn't appear to be any other places for me since the refurbishment. Friend had to lift me sideways in wheelchair since no room to manoeuvre. Still difficult to get in front door and no access to boardwalk area. Very disappointed at lack of interest or care for disabled people. WE are customers too! I felt I was being hidden away because I use a wheelchair.
Lovely nice fresh food not abit greasy kids loved the skinny fries kids meal was good portion my sweet potato fries where the best thank u 😊
Went to see the refurb and have lunch with friends. Refurb a bit overdone for me. In terms of the food - no mussels so mussels and chowder were out; no ribs; 3 out of 4 of us had to re-choose a dish; no Hophouse beer or decaf coffee; both the battered fish and mushrooms ordered by 2 of us were more batter than fish or mushroom. The Caesar salad ordered by one of us was good. The service has always been patchy in the Windrose and I’m not sure it’s improved - please remove empty bottles and glasses as you go along; bring jug - a nice carafe or modern jug would be one up from a cheapo one - of water when people with menus at the start. Disappointed all round really.
Service was a little slow.
Food was great service was not so good there was a bit of confusion with orders, we were left sitting with no drinks for around 20 mins and although we had pre ordered our food it still took over an hour for our food to be served.
I had the chicken goujons which were lovely but I had to ask for a bigger plate to eat them on. The thin small plate was totally impractical. The staff I spoke to was very happy to provide me with a proper size plate so I could eat my dinner without spilling onto the table and also add my chips to the plate. Excellent service by lovely members of staff who could not do enough for us. Had a wonderful time and will definitely be back to try another new dish. Thank you.
Food was the last word, excellent...
Has to be the best restaurant in Northern Ireland .... hadn’t visited tbe upstairs Marina Restaurant before..... whoo!!! Can’t wait to tbe new downstairs opens at the end of March
I ate dinner and everything was okay
good food, nice surroundings, pleasant staff, value for money, average level of service.
Terrible customer service from start to finish.
Well i wasn't exactly able to enjoy the experience as of last notice, i was contacted that my reservation was cancelled due to the establishment going until refurbishment. It was obviously not something that was decided last minute and had 6 days to let me know this information, rather than ruin m mothers celebration plans for her birthday. Very disappointed with their lack of contact and very angered.
service at the beginning of our meal was good enough, but as a couple of more tables arrived it got much slower and staff were less attentive.
Food was beautiful and staff excellent. Shame there was no entertainment on but understandable with renovations going on. Look forward to returning.
