My wife & I had a dinner at Windross on a warm weekday and we were welcomed by the lovely seaview on Shelly Beach Parade outside the restaurant. It made us forget about the roughness of the wind. The wait staff was friendly & cheerful. My wife's House made lemonade, lime & bitters was great. Garlic prawns were fresh & lovely. Chicken livers were nicely matched with beautiful cream sauce. Masala veal & salmon fettuccine were just as good. Tiramisu looked amazing, but subjectively, I preferred to have it a bit sweeter. Anyway, it was a very enjoyable dinner.

Windross house restaurant was amazing place i love historical building, wonderful host and food. It ticked all my boxes 😊really nice Italian meal and garlic foccaccia to start with.

Went here for lunch on a Saturday to look at using this place as our wedding venue. The first thing you notice about this place is the extremely warm welcome by the owners. Especially Juiliana. We were so well looked after all of the staff are lovely. The location is gorgeous as it's right opposite the beach. The food is yummy, nothing fancy and could have had a bit more veges but really impressed with this place. The service will have us back and we look forward to having our wedding here too!

A beautiful gem out east. I went here for dinner to celebrate Mother's Day. And what a great choice it was. We were welcomed in for our group of 7 and we ordered a variety of dishes. The staff went above and beyond for us and I thoroughly enjoyed my meal, as did everyone. I ordered a beautiful eye fillet that was perfectly cooked medium rare accompanied by succulent vegetables. From portion size, taste, to presentation and time, this meal was cooked with love. Definitely returning to this restaurant 👍🏽

Overall A lil disappointed. Nice lovely place, The restaurant was crowded! Waited almost an hour and a half for our food to arrive. The food overall isn't horribly bad but it's a lil too over priced. $29 for prawns w spaghetti -Portion size was alright- but tasted a little bland n the prawns were tiny

We've been coming here for nearly 14 years and it has been consistently great. It's a great spot for celebrations and also just for catching up. I can highly recommend the cocktails as they are some of the best I've ever tried.

Wonderful experience this weekend at Windross, food was exceptional and service was amazing as is always. Thank you Windross for making our celebration extra special.

Got married here on August 12th 2006 the staff and the owners were great the meals were top quality they really looked after us all, there was sixty of us and it was quite well priced. So for our tenth wedding anniversary I thought I would get a group of people together and head back there a trip down memory lane just a small group this time of eight people once again the meals were served on time the size of the meals were just enough and our friend aren't little people don't tell them I said that, we all had entrees mains and quite a few drinks we had a sober driver so could. The meals were of top Quality, I think they really looked after us all once again the price for us all was $840.00 not bad and still the same owners. Thank you Billy and Juliana for another great evening The Duffy Clan

Disapointed. Was a busy night and resturant was like a sauna with no air conditioning. For close to $200 we got below average pre frozen sea food served to us. I would not expect this low quality of food at the price we payed. We will not be coming back. Completly under whelmed and over charged.

Have just read the most recent review on here and I should have read it before we went to this restaurant which was last night. Agree with everything said. For me its stuck in a time warp from 15 years ago, menu very standard with nothing eye-catching. Both our meals were average at best with the vegs and salad on my chicken dish about the level I could do and that's not great, really! My wife said her pasta very plain and definitely not home made - in an Italian restaurant? disappointing was hoping for so much better.
