Did not eat in restaurant but bought food and ate outside under trees overlooking the trout dam. Food average. Cupcakes were absolutely delicious. Milly's cafe had the most amazing range of goodies to buy which were all excellent. Would definitely recommend a stop at Milly's!!

Conveniently located about halfway from Jhb to Kruger, Milly's is a great stop. Restaurant is on the dam, kids amused watching carp. Lots of trout on the menu, and expected favourites along with changing seasonal specials. It's a neat spot, and worth visiting the shop...More
