We found the food to be very good but the beautiful setting is really what I will remember most vividly from our visit to The Millhouse. Far from the madding crowds that await one in Queenstown, this restaurant is situated on hundreds of acres of a beautifully manicured golf course. The wait staff were knowledgeable and very friendly. I had... More

The food was simply superb. The ambience was a lot more formal than is suitable for a slightly hyperactive toddler but then, it is a fine dining place. Did I mention the food was great?

To start we ordered two bottles of recommended white wine, a Sauvignon Blanc and a Chardonnay. Both were not cold. When we complained we... More

Beef has never tasted so good. The restaurant snuggled into the basement of an old millhouse is an ideal setting for some of the finest food I have eaten.

Nice ambience and staff who are very professional and friendly. Menu is a good balance of traditional and chef creativeness all based on local produce as much as possible. Wait staff will explain the dish and flavours upon delivery - if you choose. Very enjoyable dining experience. Highly recommend.
