A charming modern independent bistro, Milkwood champions traditional and contemporary Welsh cuisine. With a simple colour scheme of dark leathers, polished woods and white walls, this is a casual, inviting setting to enjoy tastes of the local area.
The Milkwood menu focuses on Welsh recipes, but with bold, inventive tweaks. Start off with fresh seafood flavours, with the smoked eel salad with nasturtium and horseradish, moving on to spring lamb cutlets with salsa and aubergine. Game delicacies include the spiced quail with hummus, and there are vegetarian options such as homemade tagliatelle with summer truffle.
A selection of dessert wines at Milkwood in Cardiff are perfect to round off a meal, or indulge in one of the puddings, with choices including rhubarb with buttermilk junket and fennel granite. There is also a polished wine list to choose from, with bottles from around Europe.
Milkwood is a cosy space to enjoy modern Welsh recipes, and sits a stone's throw from the green open spaces of Portcanna Fields. Ninian Park Rail Station is a 6-minute drive away.

Amazing food, relaxed atmosphere with friendly and efficient service

Really tasty and reasonable lunchtime set menu. A real midweek treat for us on a rare day off with childcare! Cod was delicious and perfectly cooked and the beef sandwich delicious too.
Real value for money at £17/£21 for three courses/with wine.

Dining at Milkwood was an excellent experience. The welcome was warm and the service very good. The staff were attentive and friendly. The menu was limited but we always think that’s good. The food was fresh, perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. Could not fault the whole experience. Will highly recomend the place to our friends and family and we look forward to returning soon.

Had the courgette flowers tempura- fab! The steak was perfectly cooked to my taste although I felt I needed something else and so ordered mustard. The vin santo and biscotti was just perfect to finish off. We had G and T’s to start and lovely white and red wines. Service was also perfect and charming.

Service friendly, unobtrusive, helpful. Can't remember which French Red wine we had but it was smooth and not too heavy. All courses chosen by the four of us were beautifully presented and delicious.
