We recently dined at Windross House for a family celebration. We were a medium sized group and were very happy with our seating which was slightly away from the main dining area. The service as always was on point, friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. The food was pretty close to perfect. The teenagers enjoyed the very generous pasta dishes and the adults were very pleased with their entree and main meals. We have been several times and highly recommend the scallop entree and calamari entree - our favourites and always delicious. The location is lovely, directly across the road from beautiful cockle bay beach which makes for a nice dining experience.. Highly recommend a visit during the summer months so you can enjoy the view from the verandah. Overall a great meal in a spot on location.

Mike Tan - Visited May 2019

I’m not an East Auckland local (anymore) but I stumbled upon this place looking through some reviews and Cockle Bay/Howick is very fortunate to have a restaurant like Windross. The setting is well done and the restaurant is comfortable with great intimate lighting. The service was exceptionally good with enthusiastic and informative staff, friendly and pleasant. The food and wine was great and flavoursome.
