Myself and three friends attended Windows today and had a lovely afternoon. On arrival we were met with a lovely young woman who took our coats and brought our drinks and water. We were given ample time to choose our dishes from the Christmas menu and the food did not disappoint. It was delicious. Two of us had the vegetarian... More

Had a lovely, long, leisurely lunch with my two sisters who were treating me for my special birthday. Staff all very friendly and attentive, particulary Jacqueline. Good choice on the set menu and all our choices were very tasty and well presented. We had a couple of problems- no chocolate sauce on the sundaes and the coffee was very strong... More

We celebrated a trio of family birthdays (18/50/80) with lunch today at Windows Restaurant. We hadn't been there before but it was a great choice. The lunch menu had something for everyone, the food was very tasty, the staff were wonderful, and the view was great. We couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable family meal. I'd like to thank...

Always great to find a new place you can thoroughly recommend. Had a lovely family lunch celebrating our son's 18th birthday before he headed out with his pals later. Staff were wonderful and the complimentary birthday cake was very much appreciated. Will be back to sample the delicious looking afternoon tea. Thank-you all

The location is good, with rooftop views out of large windows. The restaurant is bright and airy during the day and I suspect quite romantic at night. Definitely a small oasis of calm in the city. We went for afternoon tea and the service was pleasant efficient and helpful full marks to the waitresses. The afternoon tea sandwiches were good... More

Market menu is great value. Service was good. Drinks are reasonably priced. We also had afternoon tea here, which would have been better with a greater selection of teas. Great views of the city .
