A pleasant afternoon relaxing with a lovely view over the interesting water hole outside the cafe. Surprised at the price of $15 for a glass of Pinot Gris. Even more surprised at the less than generous measure (see photo for measure ...no measure level on the glass). 20 minutes after ordering and not receiving our wine (it was not busy!),... More

Popped into The Hole in One Cafe for lunch with a friend. Great food and reasonably priced. We were very happy with the service we received until we were leaving; we were served by the 'Outlet Manager' 'Laeticia' whose attitude, we both thought, was very rude and we left with a sour view of this venue.

Despite staying at Millbrook many times over the past 10 years this is the first time we have used this café as a sit down dinner venue. Service is prompt, efficient and pleasant, We had a pizza which scored 8 out of 10. Recommended for a casual meal.

We had enjoyed a round of golf and were able to relax in a beautiful location in the outdoor area of this restaurant. There were heaters outside to keep the chill off whilst enjoying the gardens and the golf course. There is a warm and welcoming indoor area as well. The food was exceptional, fresh, innovative and presented well. Staff... More

We were at Millbrook to play golf and we had lunch before we teed off. Lunch was very good, fast service and a casual environment. We ended up playing 27 holes and we played late enough that we stayed for dinner too. The menu was essentially the same as lunch, but they have nice selections and we were both happy.
