Had an excellent meal at Pio Pizza Cafe tonight after a day exploring Milford Sound. Bit pricey but the food was exceptional. Seafood chowder was lovely for an entrée and hubby had goats cheese which was beautiful and creamey. Had venison for main and I...don't think I have had better. Cooked to perfection and melted in your mouth. Other main of pork belly also perfect. Desert of chocolate mouse and cheesecake didn't disappoint although make sure you are a hard core chocolate lover if you order the mouse. Limited menu but given the location some solid choices.More

Amazing food. Not the cheapest, but the $75 for three courses of your choice is great valve for such high quality. Venison was cooked amazingly. Staff all great as well

The food was exceptional and cannot wait to come back again!! It was fine dining yet such a reasonable price and one we cannot complain about. We were so happy and excited about the meals, we had to get some to takeaway and eat the...next day! Great staff, great meal, great place! Thanks againMore

I was staying at the lodge so decided to have dinner there as well and I was not disappointed. I thought they had a good selection of meals to choose from and there drinks menu was good as well. The service was very good and...efficient. I really enjoyed each of the dishes I had, they were a good portion size, very well presented and tasted very good. I have to say this just added to an excellent stay at the lodgeMore

Oh wow! We were staying at the lodge and booked in for dinner. What a treat. I ordered pork belly, hubby had the venison. We also ordered potatoes and cauliflower to share. I can’t say a bad thing about anything we ordered. I had wanted...a dessert but was just too full to manage it. The staff were bubbly and friendly.More

We dined here when we stayed overnight recently - the Milford Lodge team are attentive and friendly and the food was delicious. Smaller menu, but good options for all 4 of us there. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening!
