What people are saying about Mills Reef

  • "Visited for lunch. Beautiful food and excellent choices of wine making the experience very, very enjoyable. Attentive and friendly staff. Good menu, recommend the liver and porcini paté for entree, rich but not too heavy. The scallops with artichoke risotto were beautiful and made me want more. Good wine menu as would be expected at a winery! Visitng the tasting room added a lovely finishing touch to the whole experience.
    Not our first visit and certainly won't be the last!" Jan A

 

  • "Loved our luncheon - good weather enabled us to eat outdoors. Service good, food fabulous. For entree we had liver & porcini pate with walnut crostini - delicious. Mains were double baked goat cheese with a wonderful salad; my husband had crab & prawn cakes, again with salad. Then a decadent chocolate tart with chocolate mousse. Mills Reef reserve Pinot Gris was a perfect accompliment. Will definitely return." Sarola

  • "The food was delish, the service impeccable and wine lovely. Gorgeous setting just outside of Tauranga. Love the giant table they have in the garden which could easily seat 50 people. Sat outside which was lovely. Would like to return for a wine tasting or dinner." Sten H

 

  • "Excellent choice of food and wines to enhance their flavours. Great to sit outside in the glorious Bay or Plenty sunshine, eat beautiful food, drink scrumptious wines with friends or as a couple, listening to local musicians on a Sunday afternoon. Lovely setting inside too for those romantics." Sue
