Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Sunday night dinner and even though the food was good and the service also good, I did feel a little let down. The price was a little too high for what you get and the menu somewhat limited. Good selection of wines, though.

Great service , however, menu was limited and portions were tiny. There was a 10% Sunday surcharge, even though the restaurant is only open Wednesday to Sunday. Compared with other Pokolbin Restaurants we considered the dinner experience poor value for money.

Quite simply the service was great and the food was sensational. We started the night with some cocktails and they were devilish good. My wife had the scallops to start and I had the octopus. The scallops were cooked to perfection and my octopus was...so tender that it melted in my mouth. Never had octopus this tender, streaks ahead from anywhere else that I had octopus. For mains, my wife had the barramundi and I had the duck. My wife's comments was that the fish was cooked perfectly with crispy skin and the vegetables with it worked with the fish. My duck was cooked perfectly with the meat falling off the bone and the beetroot, beetroot puree, sauce and radish slices meshed with the duck beautifully. We only had the two courses so we only finished with coffee, but it was filling so we really didn't need dessert. The staff were friendly and were not pushy for you to have more. Highly recommend The Mill Restaurant on Estate Tuscany to everyone, and next time I'm at the Hunter Valley I'll be back there to eat.More

We were staying at the Estate Tuscany resort and enjoyed our daily breakfast at the Mill Restaurant as we did with our only dinner at this fine restaurant (we were there from Monday to Wednesday and the restaurant only opens for dinner Wednesday to Sunday).... For dinner we chose the 2 course meal at The Mill. From the time we walked in, the service was fantastic. Kris ensured that we felt as welcome as close family and helped us through the menu, explaining the origin and cooking method for our chosen meals. Entree: Wood fired prawns, avocado, watermelon radish; and, Main course: Humpty Doo Barramundi, green peas, charred cucumber, velouté. The food was delicious and well presented. An enjoyable end to our stay at Estate Tuscany.More

Fantastic venue, well situated with an amazing view of the Brokenback mountain range. Staff were very attentive, and we had a lovely big open fire. Good selection of local wines and the food was delicious. Will definitely be coming back to show my partner.

Our first night in the Hunter Valley and we had a 2 course meal at The Mill. From the time we walked in, the service was fantastic. The food was delicious and dining with my partner we both received our meals at the same time....I know a small thing but it makes a big difference. The food was well presented, and we really enjoyed the meal. Would recommend The Mill if you get a chance, I would definitely go back.More

Dined there for the first time after given a birthday voucher for the Mill. We opted for the 3 course dinner which came out a little slow but was well worth the wait. The meals were tasty and substantial, would definitely return here in the...future if given the opportunity. Photos included of my meals.More

My husband, son and I dined here for a special dinner on our holiday to the hunter. It was such a wonderful night. I had the prawn starter and cauliflower for main, the boys had octopus starter and rib for main - everything was delicious....The side of potatoes was incredible. The food, the service, the view - everything was so lovely. Highly recommend!More

We went there for dinner (family of four) and really enjoyed the food. Decided to have 3x 3 course menu and 1x 2 course menu, which allowed us to sample pretty much everything on the menu. Entrees and desserts were excellent and we tried all...of them. Barramundi was great and the rest of the family had duck. Surprisingly the kitchen managed to overcook a duck leg ever so slightly, so it became a dry. So bit of a warning here. Good selection of wines at very good prices for a restaurant. Definitely an enjoyable evening, good food and great wine.More

We ate here a few times during our stay at the Estate Tuscany. Excellent and succinct menu that offered something for everyone. We were even allowed to bring our Labrador Charlie one night as the restaurant has some tables outside for furry friends. Restaurants in...the Hunter Valley struggle for staff during the holiday period so everyone, especially Kris, had to work extra hard to maintain high standards. Really appreciated it and look forward to eating there again.More

Krishna and all staff were simply fantastic, helping to cater for a fussy eater in our family and going out of their way to offer alternatives for them. The food was gorgeous, flavourful and nicely presented. All plates, three courses each for four people, returned...to the kitchen empty even though the serves were plenty. Overall we loved our experience and will definitely be back. Great value as well.More

We escaped the rat race in Sydney for 3 days and chose Tuscany complex. The highlight of our stay was the surprising and excellence of The Mill Restaurant contained within the grounds. The food quality and range was extremely high and very enjoyable. The Manager,...Chris, was especially welcoming and ensured that our dining experience each night was without fault. It is also pet friendly!More

As everything was booked out we went to the Mill. I have to say it is a must try restaurant. At first you may think it is not enough food, but the intensity of the flavours and the amount served, as well as the experience....Just AMAZING. We will definitely return. On a side note we were more than full! The service was splendid. And a big shoutout to the chefs, from my parents and me. Well done!More
