The chicken and cheese quesadilla was absolutely delectable! The area was tiny, but somehow was designed in such a way as to make it feel very comfortable none-the-less.. My husband said that his fish tacos were excellent.

If you have not been here you owe it to yourself to hop on your motorcycle or in your car and make a trip here. The food and the waitstaff are both first class. I would not hesitate to come back over and over..EXCELLENT

We were looking for a low key dinner. We hadn't planned on Mexican food, but we are glad we chose this place. The food was great and my daughter is not a fan of Mexican food. When I asked if they could just make her a chicken and cheese quesadilla (not on the menu), they couldn't have been nicer about... More

A real gem in the Stonington Borough. Authentic as it gets. It is small, cozy and informal. Hope made chips to great food and margarita selections!!

This eatery is VERY popular. The flow of incoming diners never stopped while we were there. Clearly, other diners must like the place so perhaps judge for yourself. I found the food to be average. The entrees were just ok and the beans and rice sides tasted like they came from a can. They were also over salted. The waitress... More

After reading reviews online and meeting a couple that recommended Milagro, we decided to stop for lunch on our travels to Stonington. We couldn't have been happier we came! We honestly didn't expect such good Mexican food in a tiny seaside town. The food was so fresh and tasty, with excellent ingredients. The Guacamole was probably some of the best... More

We've been regulars, since they opened and have always left happy. Every visit for us starts with a fresh margarita and the tuna ceviche. We often order the fabulous chile rellenos and the cochinita special. Last night the scallops with avocado were sensational. One diner who thought she did not like Mexican food became a convert.

Some people love this place -- but I think maybe for the margaritas? The food was bland and bad…so bad that I never went back. Usually I give a place 3 tries but once was enough for me here!

Milagro is my absolute favorite restaurant! I live nearby and always bring visiting guests here. Yes, it is tiny so there is often a wait, but it is definitely worth it. Charming atmosphere, warm and attentive service, and wonderful food!

Small, bright, cheerful, inexpensive. The waitstaff is friendly and obliging. The food is VERY fine--traditional Mexican cuisine (i.e., not standard-issue Tex-Mex), prepared perfectly and made with the freshest ingredients. Unless you're exceptionally hungry, skip the first course: the tortilla soup is superlatively good, but you'll want to leave plenty of room for the entree. I can't recall ever having had... More
