We went for a lovely meal to First On Windsor and it was delicious. We opted for the Valentines Day special and it was awesome. Well done First On Windsor as always it was a lovely experience, a real treat. Thank You. Anne-Marie Keville. Invercargill.

Have eaten here before and had an enjoyable meal, but the last two experiences more recently have not been great. The service was good, and the atmosphere, but sadly the food did not rate as well. Beef stir fry usually implies there is some meat in the meal.

They do lunch specials which are quite delicate and small...even the 96 year old grandmother complained about the size and she makes Meals On Wheels go for 2 nights so tells you something. Muffin was dry and lacking flavour.

this is a place to go for a quick and appetising meal where the cost is affordable and not too dear to take the family

My partner and I have eaten at First on Windsor many times, mostly for lunch. The food is always good and the staff are very friendly. The service happens at a nice pace and your never rushed. They have a good wine list which we are working through (although we do have our favourites which we drink time after time).... More

Had lunch here last weekend.I have always had the fettuccine but ordered film parcels. Should have gone for the normal fettuccine. Maybe time to update the menu
