Amazing food

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?

We are guests if the Millbrook Resort. My wife and I went to dinner at the Millhouse last night with an English couple we had met during our stay. We all felt the Millhouse was underwhelming. To start we ordered two bottles of recommended white wine, a Sauvignon Blanc and a Chardonnay. Both were not cold. When we complained we... More

Beef has never tasted so good. The restaurant snuggled into the basement of an old millhouse is an ideal setting for some of the finest food I have eaten.

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
