The service was amazing and after we orded we got a little soup from the house. We both orded a fish and it was amazing. The dessert looks amazing and tasted even better. Thanks for an amazing evening.

The food was excellent and very reasonably priced considering the quality, and service was lovely and attentive. Some of the incredients were a bit unusual which was really refreshing. Decor was lovely too. All in all, warmly recommended - I'd happily go again.

Small restaurant with excellent food and cocktails. Great presentations, great service, and delicious entrees with some very inventive taste experiences. Prices a step up from the surrounding places, but still reasonable for a high-end dining experience at a remote island vacation spot.

Milpa is very laid back, no real dress code. But their service and food will certainly deserve a nice outfit.
