We dined there 3 times during our one week stay. Each time was a culinary adventure . Creatively prepared food. Excellent quality produce. Lamb, beef and venison all excellent. Mains $42nzd each. And the 2009 Taras Pinot was the finest Pinot we have ever had (2009 vintage, $110 bottle). Finally, the waiters were attentive but not over the top. Full... More

Once again, we had the most delicious food at The Millhouse. And it's not just about the food, which was fantastic, but the staff make your meal the best experience. I don't know where they find the people they employ, but they always have the best staff.

We dined in the Mill House last week at Milbrook. The food was the best meal Ive had in a long time. I highly recomend the Duck. We ate out in Queenstown all week and this was the best service by far.

We returned to Queenstown with a visit to the Millhouse pre-booked. Sometimes this can be a gamble but it didn't fail to satisfy. Even our 9 year old now raves about The Millhouse! We had the angus beef and the lamb mains whilst our daughter had the pasta. She did end up eating some of our meals as well after... More

Fine dining at its best The staff were very professional but extremely friendly The was excellent! We have two criticisms of this restaurant Firstly the restaurant has open fire but is not in use! Secondly, we felt that the wine was overpriced!

What a shame we could only go to this restaurant once on our five day stay. However it was worth it. The service impeccable, food simply stunning and the ambiance inside an old mill - priceless. Well deserved plated restaurant. Keep it up !

Quite an enjoyable dining experience. An amuse buche of calves tongue was an interesting start, followed by a delicate salad of beets, goats cheese mousse ,Granny Smith apple scorched pear and red wine caramel. The pork jowl main I thoroughly enjoyed. Cooked to perfection. The kitchen staff kept wowing us, with dishes that while perfectly executed , seemed more substantial... More

Elizabeth and I decided to take a break for 3 days in Millbrook for our 7th Wedding Anniversary. Whilst there we decided to have dinner at the Millhouse. It was an outstanding experience. From the mid-winter chill outside to the open fire inside, fantastically attentive staff, intimate surroundings and a simple yet sophisticated menu. The Millhouse is now our favorite... More
