    Highly recommend giving this a BIG miss. Service was non existent had to drag a waiter over to take our order, had to then go to the bar after asking 3 times for water for the table. Meals took well over an hour to come out and when they arrived my crispy pork belly was cold with stone cold mash potato and had to be sent back. The bathroom was disgusting with bits of old toilet paper and old wrappers on the floor No toilet paper in either toilet ,so I went to the disabled toilet to look for paper and found someone had, had a really bad explosion on the toilet which made me heave. The sinks were blocked with dirty water half filling the bowls and no soap. I mentioned all this to the manager/owner who just argued that they were sparkling at the start of the evening and he was too busy behind the bar to check throughout the night. I WILL DEFINITELY NEVER RETURN OR RECOMMEND THIS RESTAURANT.

    A great time at The Mill last night. The staff were great, David was welcoming and had us in fits of laughter. It was just the little things. Hard apricots on the cheese platter, really thick base on the cheesecake, Kiev looking brown rather than golden. Table service just a bit too slow which meant one of our party had to leave before dessert arrived. Other than that…perfect!

    Their food and service great as always. Owner David provides personalised service, easy to see why it comes highly recommended from friends who have been before over the years.

    The restaurant and food was really nice! We just had to wait a really long time before we got our food - we waited 45-50 minutes but we eventually got there!

    Comfortable ambience, server was unattentive, took a long time to come for our order and forgot to bring water. Food was delicious though, we had the roast chicken breast and burger and both were delicious, great portion size and value for money.

    David and son and the whole team at The Mill gave us an amazing experience. We come here every time we come to Melbourne and bring all our team. It's always an excellent meal. The atmosphere is terrific. It is our go-to destination. Jo (Sydney)

    The waiter was extremely helpful and friendly , he offered suggestions and checked what was safe for me to eat with my allergy. It was a nice place to eat in a casual atmosphere.

    David and his team were frist class, proving 1st class attentiveness and care. He accomodated a booking of 20 people at short notice and ensure we all had a fantastic night.

    The food was well priced but the service was slow. Our booking was for 5 pm. No one came near us for at least 20 minutes and I wondered if it wasn’t table service? It wasn’t busy. Our food was slow as well. At 6.20 we were served our meal. The food was like pub grub but fine as not over priced. There was also no soap in the bathroom to wash your hands with. Sadly would not recommend at all.

    Excellent service, meals were fabulous and great serving sizes. The ambience was romantic but also worked well for families… not to mention the hidden bar downstairs! Will definitely be back.

    Went on a date last night at The Mill. From the first moment that we arrived the service was stupendous. I have never met a friendly group of staff. From tapas to dessert the food was tasty, fresh and so beautifully presented. The gentleman serving and making the cocktails has a skill beyond anything I have ever experienced. Each drink cold, crisp, and on point. We certainly will be retiring for another date. Thank you The Mill and it’s beautiful staff .

    Returned to The Mill after a year and it did not disappoint. After speaking quite a bit to David in 2022 about the struggles during Covid it was great to see the restaurant full once again! Food was great and the cocktails were delicious. Would definitely recommend to anyone for a larger group or smaller dinner and will be returning

    I recently dined at The Mill with my family and I have to say it was one of the best dining experiences I've had in a long time. From the moment we walked in, the atmosphere was warm and welcoming, with friendly staff that made us feel right at home. The menu was thoughtfully curated, with a range of options to suit every taste. But what really set this restaurant apart was the service. Our waiter was attentive without being intrusive. He ensured that every aspect of our dining experience was top-notch. Overall, I would highly recommend The Mill to anyone looking for a great dining experience. The food, service, and atmosphere were all outstanding, and I can't wait to go back and try more of their amazing dishes.
