Great Food

Very high quality food and extremely knowledgeable staff. Quite a small place but even with the hotel seemingly full never saw the restaurant reach full capacity.

We had dinner here with our friend and all being Aucklanders, we agreed that it was as good as anything in Auckland. Good service, great wine list and super menu.

This was probably the best meal I have ever had. So many tastes and flavours on one plate and all completely delicious. The staff are amazing we had Rory and Lenka - impeccable service and their knowledge of the food is outstanding.

We enjoyed a lovely meal accompanied by good wine. Four of six of us had the lamb and it was excellent. Dessert was also a must. I don't usually order dessert it they looked too good not too and was worth the calories. Highly recommend having a meal here.

Booked for birthday treat but felt a little disappointed with the meal. Soup was meant to be parsnip and Parmesan but was completely tasteless and needed seasoning.

Staying at the Hilton in Queenstown we grabbed the Millbrook shuttle to dine at the Millhouse. The drive is totally worth it! The meal was outstanding. Have the Lamb dish. Best in my life - a real taste experience! Thank you so much 😊

I took two friends to the restaurant. We had the choice of Western or Japanese. MMMM loved them both I had Japanese and my friends had Western The Chef needs a medal GOLD the food was delicious. Attendants could not do enough for us, you need to go here if in Arrowtown or Queenstown, anywhere actually!
