Fabulous food, fabulous service, fabulous venue and fabulous location! We all enjoyed our lunch at Windross House Restaurant yesterday, celebrating my parent's 57th Wedding Anniversary. The food was well presented and portions were of a good size - we all had an entree and a main, and felt 'full' without feeling 'stuffed'! Service was friendly and paced perfectly. Highly recommend Windross! 🙂

Thank you and your team very much for Saturday and for helping to make it such a special day. Everyone enjoyed it all so much, and Mum and Dad were especially thrilled with how it all went

We have had dinner at Windross a number of times over the years, and this visit was to the usual high standard. We particularly enjoyed the steak and orange roughy we had as our mains. Lovely atmosphere, even when busy, and good service. Everything is cleared off your table promptly but you are not pushed to make quick choices off the menu. The Howick Botany area has lots of average restaurants that can be good and bad depending on luck of the day Windross was excellent place to dine Great service, beautiful food and good wine. It does not have the feeling that it deviates from this high standard either Glad we found this place We will be back

Fantastic food and service, had one of the best steaks I have had in a long time! Perfectly cooked (medium rare) that melted in ones mouth with a mushroom sauce to die for!

Amazing food and service

Allan Marsh - Visited August 2019

Superb food and very warm and cozy on a wet winter evening. We were in a party of nine and eight of us really rated the food. You can ignore the ninth, he is just fussy.

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.
