“A little bit of class by the beach.”
Reviewed 2 March 2012

The best location for a restaurant in this area down by the beach, Windross offers consistently good food and friendly service.

The wine list could do with improving but overall it's hard to fault this place.

Great for that special occasion dinner as the prices are relatively high for the area.

“Amazing Food with Excellent Service”
Reviewed 20 January 2012

My husband and I were very impressed with the Windross right from the moment we walked in. The decor was elegant without being over the top. It is in a prime location opposite the water and they had the choice of seating either inside or on the deck looking at the water.

It was spacious and you didn't feel like you were crammed in next to other patrons.

We both enjoyed 3 courses and each course was delicious. I had the Avocado Shrimp Cocktail, followed by the Beef Steak and finished with the Brandy Snaps. My husband had the Focaccia Bread, The Seafood Platter and the Tiramisu.

And lastly, the service was fantastic. We didn't have to wait long between courses or to be served at the start. Our waitress was friendly and inquired about our meal without being to intrusive.

We will definitely come back here!!

“Wonderful resturant and fantastic service”
Reviewed 3 January 2012

This is one of our favourite restaurants, and in December we celebrated our third wedding anniversary here.

My husband had the scallops as an entree, followed by the fettuccine, while I had the squid followed by the veal.

Everything was wonderfully presented and tasted great.

The service is fantastic.

We will definitely be back.
