As Good As Ever Was

Over all the years that I have been to The Millhouse, it stills gives me pleasure. The setting right by the old mill and pond - very relaxing. Charming staff and beautifully executed food

What can I say? The dinner here was a highlight of my trip. Starting with the Wild Hare Loin and Confit leg followed by a Teriyaki glazed Duck Breast - the flavours were outstanding. My wife had Crispy Whitebait followed by a superbly cooked Cardrona Merino Lamb rack and shoulder. Deserts - Sticky Date Pudding and Chocolate & Raspberry Assiette... More

It was chefs choice re the choice of food. The soup, potato and leek, was amazing. So creamy. Two entrees were enough for my palate.

This is the best restaurant we have ever been too and yes we travel and eat out a lot! The staff are efficient, knowledgeable, polite and friendly. The decor and ambience is romantic and rustic with the restaurant overlooking the lake and 9th hole. There is a very extensive and impressive wine list that includes a range of NZ and... More

Went here with my son who is a chef and who was recommended by his boss. The food cannot be faulted. My son said it was the best meal he had tasted in Quenstown area. Service was also faultless. Setting beautiful but weather was cold so couldn't sit outside.

I've reviewed Millbrook before but they never fail to impress. We had a big family gathering for a milestone birthday and Millbrook, and especially the Millhouse Restaurant, went the extra mile to make it special. Our favourite place in NZ to relax. Seriously, you have to go there.

We went to the Millhouse for New Year's Eve. It was a set degustation menu which they adapted to accommodate my shellfish allergy. All the dishes were fabulous and the service was great too.

We had a lovely meal here, located in part of the Millbrook resort, it has a great setting for some fine dinning. I had the lamb which was apparently one of their signature dishes, while it was nice it wasn't mind-blowing. My wife had the salmon from the grill which was great although they did forget her side order. Overall... More

With the NY only just started I don't want to jinx anything and say this place will be hard to beat as my #1 for 2016 but.... From the setting, the great service, knowledge of the dish and wine and of course the food. The little touches such as arranging a fantastic birthday cake, and singing, to the children's menu......
