The quality and presentation of each course was superb, and the service from the very well presented and attentive staff was also of the highest standard one of our party had mobility issues and another serious allergy issues, and the staff accommodated these issues with professionalism and a smile....

Probably the best meal we have had in New Zealand. I had the venison which was cooked perfectly and tasted really good.....there was a theme of carrots used to complement the dish. My wife had the fish special which she reported to be outstanding. We both ordered the Caesar salads which honestly gave us more food than we really needed,... More

This restaurant is highly suitable for a romantic occasion. The setting is wonderful, the service is excellent, we had an outstanding waitress from the Czech Republic, the food and presentation are tops, the wine we had, Black Quail Central Otago Pinot Noir, was perfectly matched to the beef. I can't imagine anyone being disappointed if they dine here.

A formal dinner with the visiting Ambassador of the Czech Republic and a few Queenstown Council representatives. Definitely the best choice to represent New Zealand level of hospitality and cuisine. Thanks to the restaurant team for the perfect service we've received.

My wife & I had dinner at the Millhouse recently to celebrate our wedding anniversary & neither os us were disappointed. The atmosphere was warm & friendly, the food was both sublime in taste & beautiful visually & the service was second to none. And we left feeling pleasantly full without overdoing it. Overall, the experience was almost equal to... More

We spent the weekend at Millbrook and ate at the Mill house Restaurant. This was fine dinning and the service was just the best. The wait staff provided an explanation for each dish which was spot on. The service overall was excellent and we couldn't fault anything on the evening.

We are staying at Millbrook resort and had dinner at the Millhouse. What a delightful experience, the staff is friendly. We ordered grilled beef fillet done perfectly as we had ordered medium rare. The presentation excellent the flavors of the sauces and sides supported the beef but didn't over power it.

Enjoyed our visit but not as high quality as expected (apart from Alaska Bombe for dessert) and was a little on the underwhelming side. Mind you I had market menu not chef menu so was a lot of it but not what I expected (pretty but small). Potato gratin was dry. Partner had hare then fish and his looked more... More

We would like to thank the staff (especially Patrick) for a truly wonderful anniversary celebration. From the champagne on arrival to our personalized dessert everything was just fantastic. The food was sensational and the dishes explained very well by Patrick – he also made a perfect wine match when we asked for suggestions. The décor was cosy and intimate and... More
