This is my 8th visit and never been disappointed. The food served here is truly for foodies and created by chefs with talent. If you are a picky eater don't bother coming because this is not the place for you. Service is incredible. Atmosphere is perfect for romantic dining with that special person.

The exceptional menu was only overshadowed by the superb service. I have seldom had such a perfect evening.

Great food, even in offseason. Small serving of veggies, they are well prepared and delicious. I could have eaten a bucket of veg.

Lovely little spot. Food was creative a delicious, service was attentive. However, the portions for most of GE meals were a little small and generally over priced. Overall a good night out with friends.

Excellent quality food intelligently prepared. We have always found well-thought-out vegetarian options here and the environment is very pleasant. For some, it may be out of the way, but we find it well worth the country drive to eat here.

A special thank you Fred who made our dining very enjoyable. Fred was energetic and very helpful as well as Amy who was assistant I believe. Very charming young lady and well informed of our meal.

The environment was very quiet and nice. The rib steak was a bit pricey, but it was very large as well as tender and juicy. The kangaroo was also good, if a bit dry. Would recommend for anyone staying in the area.

Another great fine dining experience at the Millcroft. An interesting menu that tasted devine, full of wonderful flavours and techniques for all 3 courses, our choices were kangaroo, venison and sable fish for the main course.
The service was spot on, we had a very knowledgable waitress.
My only disappointment was not having Chablis available this visit (a wine that is hard to find in restaurants in Canada..I am English) but a good alternative was served instead.
Now that my husband and I have moved into the area the Millcroft will be our local fine dining restaurant and we will be bringing more friends. A restaurant worth a visit even if out of area.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 day stay. The only problem we encountered was the noise at 2 p.m. from the wedding guests outside our room (210). We also thought that the room could certainly use a much larger TV set. The service was excellent, the staff was very professional , friendly, and especially helpful. We shall return in the future.
