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.

The restaurant agreed to accommodate us despite being full which was very kind. From the moment we arrived we were exceptionally well looked after by the three waitresses. What I loved is that they knew every detail of the menu and the food when it arrived. They described each of the plates and all its contents. The food was beautiful... More

The staff couldn't have been more accommodating for a late walk up. Created an extra table for two with a great view. Great service and great food

We joined a group of friends who had recently dined at the Millhouse, promising a fine dining experience. Certainly did not disappoint, the presentation and flavors on the plate for all courses just lovely. The scallops for entree, the aged beef fillet for main, followed by sticky date was an enjoyable meal. Like many restaurants in Queenstown, the wine was... More

We had high expectations of this restaurant but we're disappointed. We asked for a table next to the window to enjoy the view but were put next to the door and reception counter even though there were other free tables in a nicer area. Two children constantly went in and out the door which was annoying. To top our night... More

Dear Guest, I was concerned to learn of your recent disappointment with your experience at the Millhouse restaurant. With regards to your seating allocation in the conservatory, whilst I was happy to know that we were able to seat you in the conservatory to enjoy the view, I was sorry to note that you were also close to the door....

We dined in the Millhouse restaurant on Thursday evening 4th December. 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
