“Serious stuff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014 via mobile

This is a serious restaurant. The food is so good that it almost always comes as a surprise. The location is magical in summer; the decor is a bit tired but very comfortable; the welcome warm. Each year the standard improves and the smart use of local, fresh produce is obvious. This quality food would be 50% more expensive in Dublin. To be critical the wine list relatively unsophisticated for a restaurant of this quality.

“Brilliant evening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2014 via mobile

Just had our first experience of the Mill House . Staff and service were excellent very friendly and welcoming. The menu was very good could have excluded a chicken dish maybe. Our only complaint was the lamb was not served pink as requested but overall it was a brilliant experience. Will defiantly be back soon.

“1 of the best restaurants in Ireland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014 via mobile

Had my 2nd experience in the mill last week with a group of ladies , from start (booking) to finish , the staff couldn't do enough. The canapés at the start was fantastic, the entire meal was amazing , so full of flavour & and so fresh. Will be returning and recommending , thank you to all the staff and management

“Restaurant With Rooms”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

We stayed here for three nights mid-June & enjoyed a relaxing gourmet experience par excellence. The setting beside a Lough, the comfortable beds, the friendly helpful welcome and the incredible staff were all eclipsed by the standard of the food. This restaurant merits being awarded a Michelin Star so visit & enjoy it now before it is "discovered" by the pretentious foodies & the table availability decreases in direct proportion to the escalation of prices!
We met a fellow diner who regularly travels across from Derry to sample the delectable cuisine - it's that good.
If you are in Donegal you need to visit this jewel in its crown. Like Caesar's wife it is beyond reproach.

Great service, great food, lovely location, no faults, will definitely return if back in the area. Set just outside a sweet village.
