Ethnic chic

The restaurant presents itself as a ethnic chic place: all the chairs are different, the music in the background is jazz or not commercial at all, and the menu offers typical Portuguese food as well as Asiatic dishes. You can also find

We had a nice evening, with good food and good service. The menu has a lot of special tapas. The decoration of the restaurant is tasteful.

A wonderful meal in a beautiful restaurent. Our waitress Marta was fantastic and gave us lots of recommendations. We had a selection of tapas homemade lemonade great steaks and beautiful wine from the local region. I would recommend the batatas Bravas and the gnocchi. The drinks are wonderful the presentation of homemade lemonade for €2.00 is excellent. Quiet and tucked... More

I was here with my family on Sunday 12 July for my birthday dinner. There were maybe 3 or 4 other tables occupied and lots of available space for our party of 8. The waitress pointed out 2 tables that were not together and suggested we sit there (separately, 2 tables of 4) My husband thought this was not a... More

We came for lunch, the list is scarce, the prices and appearance are premium but... The medium stake came over cooked, the kids burgers also over cooked. The waiter definitely not the most sympathetic... So.. It can look good, for the price you think it will be good, but... That's it! Don't expect much more..

We had dinner here on one night of our vist to Milafontes. The decor is very nice, lovely ambience. We were very happy with the food which included salads, vegetarian burger and gnocchi. Staff were really pleasant and helpful. Overall good food and good value for money. Would definitely make a return visit.

Well decorated, a little different from the other restaurants in the town. The service is excellent, but needs some smoothing around the edges. ie you do not serve a G&T by attempting to pour in the tonic unless you ask the customer first, If you wish to go "upmarket" as this restaurant appears to want to do, they need to...

We went to Mil Fontes on a Monday and several restaurants were closed. After wondering around a bit we stumbled upon this great place. We really enjoyed the food and most the all the staff was really nice and thoughtful. Great service. It is also a great place to chill-out after dinner. There was good music and a decent drink...

Bread and garlic butter followed by very tasty gazpacho, tomato and mozzarella salad with pesto, comfortable wooden benches in the alley. Friendly and efficient service. Couldn't ask for more for a light lunch.

Good atmosphere for a romantic meal. The food was nice, but I am not sure it was good enough to make us come back. If you are looking for a tradicional restaurant with food from Alentejo this is not the place. It is the type of restaurant that might probably appeal to tourists than Portuguese that come to Milfontes for... More
