We enjoyed a magnificent platter for two offering an eclectic mix of yummy pieces - washed down with a superb Mills Reef Chardonnay. The service and environment was superb - highly recommend.

Mills reef is set in lovely grounds and also perfect for a wedding or similiar occasion as well as casual meals . The restaurant is slightly elevated so one is overlooking the grounds
