It has been many years since we stopped at Milly's. Our previous visit was before Milly's was destroyed in fire. The new restaurant is very nice. Very clean restroom? Efficient service and good food. It can get a bit crowded during long weekends. Be patient and enjoy hospitality and food.

The restaurant's architectural design and construction as well the simply decorated walls is brilliant. The tranquillity of this restaurant on top of the dam is amazing, makes for perfect and ideal place to relax and enjoy the fantastic offerings on the menu. I had lamb curry for dinner and farmer's breakfast, I must say I thoroughly enjoyed them. The restaurant's... More

Rest rooms are spotless, loads of preserves to... More

We used to enjoy stopping at Milly's on our way to Kruger or Nelspruit, but unfortunately things have changed at Milly's. The location and the restaurant is great, the view over the dam perfect to take our mind off the road for a couple of minutes whilst you replenish you mind, body and soul for the long road ahead. This... More

This restaurant is a great stopover on the way to and from the Kruger Park. Unlike fast food franchise the food is homely and they offer interesting dishes like bobotie pie, lamb vetkoek and venison pie. The farm stall sells artisanal products from all over the country.
