Staff are always friendly and helpful. Coffee is good and the setting perfection. A great place to stop whether you are staying at the resort or on a walk

We visited here mid afternoon on a weekday for a break during the business day. We were served promptly and found an outdoor table. The menu had a wide variety of dishes from salads and burgers through to more substantial meals. The prices were reasonable compared to what I expected at such a resort. The setting is just beautiful overlooking... More

Over the past few days we have been here several times and everything on the menu is delicious. The pasta of the day is packed with flavour and plenty of veges which is exactly what we wanted.

We had lunch here twice over the last couple of days. Vegetable soup was very hot & tasty - especially in this unseasonably cold weather. Margarita pizza was fresh. Caesar salad was very good. Service was very friendly and efficient! We were able to eat outside today in the cool drizzly weather because there are heat lamps on the patio.

This cafe sits within the magnificent Millbrook resort. We were here 3 times whilst staying in the resort. The food is ok and the service is less that perfect. One exception was Catriona. A lovely Irish girl. But the view is amazing.

We enjoyed a warm afternoon with a large group on the patio with drinks and snacks (the fries were great), and then a light evening meal in the cafe one evening. The food was well-prepared, generously portioned, and very tasty. The staff was attentive.
