Fantastic restaurant, great food, relaxed atmosphere, warm and friendly hosts and very well priced. A little gem in East Auckland. We will definitely be visiting again soon.
Beautiful atmosphere, wonderful italian dishes, lovely service, great location and reasonable prices... fantastic!
Amazing food and atmosphere. Incredible staff.
Such a nice quiet place to come dine. Excellent food with impeccable hosts. Have now been twice and would recommend and happily go again. Thanks Windross.
This restaurant has a beautiful menu which caters for everyone. The service is fantastic, in fact it's outstanding. I can recommend any of the dishes as I am a regular here. The tiramisu is to die for. The best. To finish your meal enjoy one of the finest ports.
Great friendly restaurant, spectacular location. We always find Windross friendly with a great menu and awesome service. Veal marsala is our favourite dish at Windross but it has one of the best menus you'll see anywhere, something for everyone.
Good wholesome Italian! I went here for a celebratory dinner with my family and some family friends. We booked prior to coming which payed off because it was packed to the brim. The waiters and staff were very friendly, helpful and accommodating as our family friends were vegetarians. They offered to make them any dish but take out the meat which turned out great as our friends could get the true taste of the food. Would definitely recommend their chicken risotto.
Lucky to have Windross as local! Situated in a really beautiful setting directly across the road from Cockle Bay Beach, Windross has a great Italian menu which the chefs can change if need be to suit coeliacs or gluten free diets. A plus for me! We have been here several times and have only ever experienced awesome food, awesome service (the owners are super friendly!) and awesome atmosphere. A restaurant that we love taking our visitors to. Tip: It pays to book ahead as it always seems to be really busy which I think speaks volumes for any restaurant!
