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 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

We ate at this restaurant three times (evenings). Nice ambience, more imaginative menu than many but service can be slow when busy (we waited over an an hour for our main course on our last visit).

What a find! Great decor, good service, lovely wines, good music and delicious food. we really enjoyed everything about it and would definitely recommend it to other travellers. The menu is quite small but interesting. Booking essential in season.

Rituals looks much nicer than the food tastes. With a menu that spans everything from thai curry to squid ink pasta, it's hard to work out exactly what they're trying to be. Seems they aren't sure themselves and that shows through in the food which lacked any real flavour. Disappointing & overpriced.

Been here twice so far in a 4 day stay in the area. All dishes were very nice (steak, burger, fish and curry were tried) and found to be good value at around €14 ave. not really a traditional Portuguese place but excellent service, food and value are what we received. Staff speak good English and friendly too.
