“Wedding Anniversary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

We booked the Millhouse for our wedding anniversary dinner. The wine list and menu are both extensive and the waiters are knowledgeable and very helpul. From the beautiful taster to the perfectly cooked steak and fantastic dessert, every course was a delight. This meal was the highlight of our stay and I only wished we could have eaten here again to sample more of the delicious sounding menu.

“Best meal EVER!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2012

Drawn to the Millhouse Restaurant by the Salt Caramel Tart, I am delighted to say that not only was the dessert everything I had hoped for, but the preceding course of Blue Cheese Ravioli was simple OUTSTANDING. I will certainly dine here again, and highly recommend it!

“Ate there twice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2012

We stayed in the condos near there and went for "a dinner." It was so good, we cancelled reservations elsewhere two days later and went back. Lovely food, great service. Pricely but worth it.

Dear TerrieRobbins,
Thank you for your recent post. It's lovely to hear that people enjoyed their experience at The Millhouse so much they came back again within the same trip. Every evening at the Millhouse the chefs and management team provide something a little bit different, making no two dining experiences the same. One thing that is consistent is the superb food, great service and relaxed atmosphere, resulting in what we believe is one of the best dining experiences in the area.
Once again thank you for taking the time to make your comments, we really appreciate it.
Kind regards on behalf of the owners and team at Millbrook Resort and The Millhouse.

“Amazing Experience / Superbe degustation menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2012

We had heard from a friend in Auckland about this restaurant and sent a special request by e-mail to know if a degustation menu was possible.

We were blown away by the quality of the 5 courses with matching wines that were served to us during this wonderful evening. The staff was great (especially Paul), the place is spotless, I STRONGLY recommend to anyone that wants to experience a very well constructed degustation menu at a very reasonable price .

The only drawback if you are staying in Queenstown is the Taxi fare to get there, but they offer a shuttle service from Queenstown CBD (even though the schedules of the shuttle weren't that convenient for us) but none the less, GREAT experience, definitely on our list the next time we pass by Queenstown
