Friday evening, the begining of the Waitangi weekend. The evening sun is setting but the summer warmth is still in the air and the tide still out. Dinner calls.

A wedding party, in a closed-off area, just settling down to their celebrations. Table for two, water, glance at the menu and there is much choice. The other tables started to fill up for the evening.

Shared the squid rings and prawns. The glass of Cloudy Bay bubbly a good selection.

Fish of the day fillets ( orange roughy ) arrived moist and succulent. A new discovery and an appreciation, by me, for this much overlooked species. A glass of pinot grii just as good.

Shared the trio of ice-cream to finish the evening.

A busy evening for Windross but the staff manage to get our plates to us in god time. This is our "local" so to speak.

Will keep it "our local". Walk there and walk back.

One of faves, beautiful little villa by the beach. Food is basic but well done and very friendly people.

This restaurant is in a stunning location and the food is top class. The staff are friendly and helpful and this is a great location for a romantic dinner for two or for a few friends to get together

The location is amazing, directly across the road from Cockle Bay Beach. We had a great table in the bay window and sat there on a superb barmy evening. This Italian restaurant has all things you would expect and our mains were great. I was just disappointed I only had four scallops in my entrée. The staff are lovely and very friendly. Our group had a great night.

My family and I visit Windross regularly for catch-up dinners as well as celebrations for birthdays and anniversaries. We usually go here for Christmas Day as well. So great to have a local restaurant that is classy and elegant. The food is always great, well-cooked and hearty - my favourites are the Veal Marsala, Eye Fillet al Pepe, and Chicken Mango. It's a must to try these three dishes if you go! The service is always great - attentive and friendly. Would recommend to everyone as a beautiful local restaurant that serves consistently good food :-)
