Loved the burrata flatbread / bianca pizza and the margherita. The seafood pasta was delicious too. Olive oil pannacota was average. We were lucky to get a table super quick. Loved the vibe around the old biscuit mill on Saturday. Definitely worth going.

The food is average, not worth the huge price tag. Our waitress was lovely and attentive, but the overall experience was that we were doing them a favour by eating there. The Biscuit Mill is always busy anyway, but when a restaurant is not busy,...More
