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!

Got to be one of the best restaurant I've ever been to and best food I've ever tasted. Was served a chef's complimentary entree. And then the mains were just out of this world! Definitely coming back if I ever have the chance to visit NZ again

Myself and my family visited the mill house early last week. The food was out of the world, I've never tasted so many flavours on one plate and flavours that we would never normally put together. The waitresses were exceptional and were highly knowledgeable about each item on every plate. With each meal came it's own story which we all... More

We are local Arrowtown residents and have dined at the Millhouse previously on a few occasions. On this particular evening we were hosting a visiting couple who four years ago had been married in Queenstown and had celebrated their wedding day with us at this restaurant. It was their anniversary so we decided to again dine at the Millhouse. Knowing... More

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?
