All the food was excellent - generous portions, balanced in taste and presentation. We asked for advice on wine, which was very helpful and informative. The room is small but not crowded, and had a very good atmosphere - relaxed, friendly service

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.

    The first time we came here we were blown away and immediately booked a second return- we weren’t disappointed. The food and service are lovely

  • ((((( 16 February 2019 by Chris from Cardiff

    This was an excellent evening. The welcome and service was friendly but appropriate. The restaurant is pleasantly decorated with original and interesting paintings, the tables a decent size and comfortable seating. The menu offered good and pleasantly original choices, each of which (including vegetarian dishes) were really interesting combinations: we both want to return to try the other dishes. The ones we chose were excellently cooked and presented, (my duck was just rare enough), portions were well judged, the dishes complete and sufficient. The wine list was similarly good with prices commensurate with the food. A really good place to which we look forward to returning frequently.

    Our coats were taken and hung up for us by the manager, who was very knowledgable of the menu and recommendations in terms of the best wine to have with dinner. I asked for a blonde beer and was recommended a local product which was naturally great. The meat we had was cooked to perfection. We had the lamb and the pork. We particularly liked the sample of the pommes topped with Parmesan. The dishes were amazing from the first taste to the last bite. Loved the ceilings too!
