Service is usually great. The view and restaurant are nice looking. On a warm summer day it is hard to beat sitting out the back with a pint, watching the boats! Food wise, largely reasonably good. Occasionally very bland, occasionally surprisingly good. A little pricey.

Came here as a couple for some dinner overlooking the boats in Carrickfergus marina. Has a great area outside to enjoy a meal or some drinks. The only problem with eating outside was that you had to go inside to order food and drinks. We both ordered the ribeye steaks which were lovely and served with onion rings and sauce.... More

Went for dinner and was disappointed. We didn't realise that there was a disco later so before we finished our meal I was asked to settle the bill.

Been to the windrose a few times and the food really is not worth the price you pay for it- all sides for the most part are charged separately at 2.95 each! Been to outstanding restaurants that have cost the same price. Service is also terrible, takes forever to be acknowledged and have your plates cleared, would not recommend!
