I read on Facebook a while back that Milly’s have introduced some vegan options so made a point of stopping here on my way back from the Legogote. What an absolute treat! The lentil cottage pie and potato and bean curry panini were both delicious and filling, and together cost less than one meal in the city. I can’t wait to go back to try the homemade vegan burger, the vegan wrap with violife cheese plus the incredible sounding breakfast option of tofu scramble with toast and veggies, a green smoothie, coffee with almond milk, and olive muffins. A real treat with a view, and pet-friendly too!

Whenever travelling this route we stop at Milly's whether for breakfast or lunch and are always satisfied. Service is generally very good and the food is served quickly which is what you want when you are still travelling. Worth a visit and will continue to return.

Had to write a new review as this experience was so different from our last. We are a family of six, and included a vegan and three vegetarians and all of us had a really good breakfast stop at Milly’s. The service was good and the menu has changed. All of us were able to get a really good meal.The food is very good and we have to recommend the very filling and creative plant based breakfast. We will stop there for a meal again on our next trip.

On our way back from Kruger we stopped at Milly's for a quick lunch. We were seated outside as the restaurant was full and waited for ages before a surly waiter came to take our order. We asked for bottled water and a trout salad. We waited nearly an hour while other patrons( who arrived after us) were served and already left before our salads arrived. We were given no condiments and our salad was not dressed and we had to ask for olive oil,etc. My small piece of trout was served upside down on lettuce leaves with a few baby tomatoes and a slice of dried out ciabatta bread. I asked for a fresh slice and after a long wait was presented with my cold,lightly toasted slice without any butter. During the long wait our waiter left dirty plates on tables and cooldrink bottles, serviettes,etc lying on the floor. Extremely dissapointing experience and our complaint was met with raised eyebrows!

We were going with a group of friends and decided that this was a good place to stop for petrol and grab brunch. The place was full which speaks volumes. We had to try the trout because we were in the area and it was great. There is also a shop where you can buy frozen trout to with you which we did in both directions of our trip (really good prices) I believe they have a lady that delivers to the JHB/Pta area once a week

We have overnighted on route to the Kruger Park a couple of times and have been impressed with the level of comfort the dam facing units have offered. This has now become part of our Kruger trip. The room itself has sweeping dam views onto the hills beyond. They are spectacular, especially when a storm rolls in. Beds are plush and comfy and the bathroom is absolutely fantastic. These rooms are as close to 5 star accommodation one can get without the expense. They are really well priced. Having Milly’s famous restaurant and trout pies a short walk across a boardwalk, makes this the idyllic spot to start a vacation. Some units look like they were occupied by fishermen, so I imagine this is a perfect fishing retreat too.

A group of five of us on a long-weekend motorbike trip stayed there on Sunday 9 February 2020. We stayed in their loft rooms which are newly built, clean and very comfortable. Their downstairs rooms have a great view of the dam, but are more expensive. The food at the restaurant was excellent and they have a good variety - Trout, steaks, curry and rice, etc, etc. The breakfast, not included in the accommodation price, was also excellent. This wasn't our first time at Milly's at Machadodorp and we'll definitely stay there again next time we do a bike trip in the area. The town of Machadodorp is only about 3 or 4 km away, but is unfortunately a dump. But don't let that stop you staying at Milly's or at least stopping for a meal.

The accommodation at Millys was opened about 6 years ago, with views overlooking the dam. We look forward to welcoming you and your group back to Millys when next you are on that road trip.

On the way to our self catering accommodation near Lydenburg we stopped at Bergen cheese, and also got some smoked trout products there. Being a cheese shop ( excellent by the way ) the selection was limited.So we stopped on the way home at MILLIES , knowing the main outlet at Machadodorp.The freezers were stocked with boxes of froze trout, ready cooked meals,and shelves full of baked goods,bottled products one can get anywhere. The gentleman in the shop was not very interested. I managed to get 2 smoked whole trout,at least not frozen too.And here we're in trout country with business from tourism at an all-time low.

Normally we drive past this place, but my friend suggested we have breakfast here on our way to the Kruger Park. I was not disappointed. The breakfast was very good and the service was quick and friendly. The restaurant is located on a dam, one can view the fish from the restaurant. I will come here again.

What a great place to stop if you are going to or from the Kruger. We had trout fish cake, trout fillet, trout pie and trout wraps. The portion size is perfect as. The accompany salad fresh and tasty. They also have an adjacent farm shop where you can buy the pies etc which would be excellent if you were going to the Kruger. The restaurant is on the trout pond which is huge and very beautiful and is situated right next to the motorway so no need for any big detours. Also I noticed there was a security guy actively patrolling the car park so it felt safe and also the loos were clean. Very impressive as a motorway service stopping place.

Milly's is a well-known spot on the N4 close to Machado Toll Plaza that is worth a stop. It has everything you need from a fuel station, various fast food outlets, a restaurant and a Trout Store which has a wide variety of items available for purchase (I can highly recommend you try their rusks). Whether you want to relax a bit at the restaurant or just make a quick pit-stop to stretch your legs and visit the trout store, this is a must-visit.

A thoroughly enjoyable overnight stay and meal at this icon. The rooms were just right with a great view over the lake; just a pity that the huge fish swimming beneath us were Carp not trout! The dinner was so tasty, awesome trout etc. We purchased lots of trout items for our stay at Berg-en-Dal Rest Camp, Kruger National Park and bought a whole lot more on our way back to the Eastern Cape for consumption at home!

What a disappointing meal. Two of us ordered pork belly with mash. Well the pork belly was covered in such a spicy/curry sauce that it was almost inedible and the mash was a watery, lumpy potato mess. My granddaughter ordered a chicken prego, that she eats regularly in other restaurants, but the sauce was too hot for her to eat. On the plusside the burgers and the chicken nuggets were fine To my mind if you are offering something like pork belly the customer should be warned if it is curried or with a spicy sauce as this is not the norm

Very good service on both a long weekend and then returning on an ordinary weekend. Two couples, arrived for breakfast brunch on the last day of a long weekend, with lots of people, very busy restaurant. Sat at outside table with view over the dam. Our order came very quickly and the breakfast was great. Quick efficient service.
