I could hardly believe how beautiful this place was at night! With the vintage looking villa and fairy lights strung along the edges of the ceiling, it was straight out of a fairytale. The inside was equally romantic with warm lights, vines, and elegant wooden furniture. The staffs were also the loveliest and friendliest human beings. Everything on the menu sounded so appetizing that making a decision was difficult! Strongly recommend starting with a garlic bread for the table. The serving size was massive, and I really liked the texture of the bread they used, although it could do with a bit more garlic butter! The seafood chowder received a lot of compliments. My sister also said the sauce of the lasagna was really well made. I had the prawn pasta, and I could not be happier with it. It had a generous amount of prawns, with the perfect amount of chilli and olive oil tossed through it! The only person who was slightly disappointed in his meal was my husband - he had the pork belly, and paired with the kumara mash, it was just too sweet and rich for him with nothing to cut through it. Nevertheless, we all fell in love with the ambience of Windross, and look forward to coming back during the day time for lunch, and enjoy the sea view ;)

Could not rate this place high enough! Service food and atmosphere are all a solid 5/5! The staff are so lovely and so accommodating. They where SO kind to us all, trying to accommodate all of us where possible. My 6 year old nephew was accommodated all night beyond belief. They feed him well and even took him on a little tour to show him things while we enjoyed our delicious meal. Our table of 6 all had different meals and everyone was very very happy with their meal! Great place for a meal with family or even a date. The view is exceptional and you’re guaranteed to have incredible service.

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. (Food - 4/5; Service - 4.5/5; Ambience - 4.5/5)
