“Restaurant Has It All”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2014

The two of us dined for a birthday celebration. We are Queenstown locals and have never been disappointed with what the Millhouse provides. Every time we drive over and dine here we say this beats the other dining venues of the same calibre in Queenstown. The setting is amazing overlooking the pond, our table was private enough for two but inclusive so you had the restaurant vibe. The food we had on the night of the 14th was amazing - so much so we made a point of letting the chef know who was humble in his response saying " it was a pleasure to serve you". Fabulous again, great memories again.

“Lovely Setting/Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014 via mobile

Four of us had dinner here recently. The room itself is lovely as are the grounds. Service was attentive but not overbearing. We all very much enjoyed the amuse bouche. Two of us had the beet root and goat cheese salad - very tasty if a tad odd. Three of us had the lamb combo which included two small very tasty ribs as well as a very tender piece of lamb shoulder roast. My husband enjoyed the soup but was not enamoured of the duck confit - usually one of our favourite dishes. All in all, a good meal, well presented with some interesting flourishes but on the expensive side.

“Beautiful surroundings, great food, fab service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

We stayed at Millbrook as a special occasion for our 10th wedding anniversary. Ordinarily we would have eaten somewhere in Arrowtown away from 'resort meals' however seeing the TA reviews we booked into the Millhouse for our celebratory dinner. So not disappointed! The setting was sublime - one of the most beautiful we have ever experienced from international travels - on a lovely Arrowtown evening. We were able to sit outside beside the lake however the inside was equally gorgeous. Meals were beautifully and knowledgeably presented and described by the well trained and friendly staff. On top of that, we were brought complimentary bubbles on arrival for our anniversary (which I had mentioned in our booking but not really expected to be acknowledged) plus a gorgeous amuse-bouche and a lovely sorbet with 'congratulations' written in chocolate on th plate. I'd like to note that we lunched at Amisfield (separate review) the day before - which we have wanted to do for ages - and it was VERY average compared to this on all fronts, including value.

“Excellent Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014

My wife and I dined here during a stay recently and found the whole experience fantastic. We dined in a little alcove looking out on the pond with ducks swimming back and forth with the sun setting through the trees. The food was well presented and very very tasty, the wine by the glass is limited in range but excellent quality. Our only comlaint would be that it was a bit difficult to understand the waitress who was another of the many young foreigners Millbrook has working there. It's pricey but well worth it.
