The back patio was just like in an alley in Paris. Great ambiance & lots of little nooks. I was with a good friend, but will be back with my husband for a romantic dinner. It's great that Milford has a restaurant like this!

Since the last time we went, the quality has gone way down. The paella was dry and bland with few of the elements to make it a seafood paella. We ordered four small plates and the mushrooms and duck were fine, the clams were middling, the artichokes were good.

The orange hued walls welcome from the moment you enter Bistro - the small bar up front is comfortable with friendly bartenders to sit leisurely and even dine there... But tables out back outdoors or partially covered area give a secluded and foreign feel to the dining experience. The tapas choices are inventive, with daily specials available. Sardines, mussels, cauliflower tapas were excellent. Main dishes of paella, sea bass, lamb and grilled meats did not disappoint any of our party. Wine choices are good and pricing reasonable. This was not my first visit nor will it be my last.

It was our first time, we tried the squid in ink, very tasty.
Overall a good restaurant, the paella was very good, lots of shrimps, scallops and stuff.
Would definitely go back
What is it with east coast restaurant not to offer California wines?

We turned to tripadvisor for an unplanned stop over in Milford, CT. We were making our way back home from a great trip in Maine, and thought our culinary experiences were behind us. We ended up staying in Milford for the night and found this great restaurant through tripadvisor. We decided to split some tapas dishes rather than the standard entrees. We had a good mix of sea food, vegetables, and meat. Each dish totally stood on its own, and they were delicious. We were lucky to get in on the early side on a Saturday night, and the place we filled during the prime time for dinner. Great energy, exceptional taste, and a very competent and warm staff. Again, thanks, tripadvisor and the contributors.
