Five of us tried the new owners menu today for lunch. We were pleasantly surprised and will be going back again. They advertise a seafood lunch menu and a dinner menu with a variety of dishes as well as some seafood dishes. We asked if we could have a few things from the dinner menu and this wasn't a problem. The only problem was trying to choose what to order as we now had two menus and everything sounded so good! We all had an entre plus mains, with Verdelho from their own winery (Bawley Vale Wines). Entres consisted of a pot of mussels, pesto with bread, pork jowl (the best sauce and melt in your mouth pork), crab bruschetta with coriander and chilli. For mains we chose the pork cutlet, goat curry, clam and barramundi chowder and beef fillet. All delicious. The service was very personal, being served by the owners themselves, who filled us in with information on their own wines and animals which that they are breeding on their farm at Bawley Point to add to the menu.
We are locals and are so pleased that their is another quality restaurant in town. Our other favourite is St Isador's at Milton. We would probably put the food at Millards close the the standard of St Isadores but with more quantity and slightly more reasonable pricing. It definitely beats Rick Steins at Bannisters for value, with a very similar quality in the dishes. We have heard the chef is ex Rick Steins and this shows. Looking forward to a return visit.

New owner with new chef. Very disappointed in new menu. Meal was not up to standard. I was a regular client but unfortunately will not be returning.

Fantastic experience all round. Great service food choice, presentation and flavour was fantastic. The service was warm and attentive and included being served by the owners. Seared Scallops, Hogs Jowels!!!! and their Cream Brule was to die for, but their Pork Cutlet was out of this world!!!! Got to get back there for lunch to try their Seafood Hot Pot. A seat in front of the fire was a real treat. Book in and ask for it.

Scallops on blackpudding great.

Steak in wine jus flavoursome but meat was chewy. Vegies undercooked.

Chilli cheesecake interesting and tasty.

Staff attentive and friendly

We enjoy this restaurant and have never had a bad meal. In fact, we liked it so much on our first visit, we decided to have our wedding reception there. It is relaxed and friendly, and all the staff went out of their way to make our reception very special. We have been back several times, and it continues to be a highlight of our coast holidays.
