Super tasty, cute interior, extremely friendly service (thanks Flavio!), and we thought well priced. Get the grouper and the ceviche!

On our 10th evening in Milfontes we decided to go to Alento. We asked if we could sit near the open door and nothing was too much trouble for our wonderful waiter. The food was excellent! We had the shrimp curry with couscous and the...prawns were juicy and plentiful and the sauce was spicy and fruity with a great depth. I had my first ever white port and it was so delicious I know what I am taking home with me. The menu is varied and I know we will be back very soon!More

Me and my partner found the Alento Restaurant by chance, just walking past the restaurant and admiring it's tastefully stylish but modest interior, without previously checking any reviews. And it was more than a stroke of luck! We spent there three wonderful evenings, delving into...the the concise, but very refined menu. And each time it was a pure foodie feast! Whatever we took, be it vegetables from the oven with half-(over)baked egg, seafood ceviche, vegetable risotto or tagliatelle with marinated tuna and wakame, it was always a delight. All dishes come with a slight twist of fusion cuisine, which added some interesting layers, and were prepared from daily catch and very fresh ingredients. A cherry on top was a great choice of Portuguese wines. Ask for Flavio, he'll guide you through the evening.More

My husband and I booked a reservation (wisely) for a Monday night dinner on our latest night in town. The entire experience was top notch. Our server was delightful. She provided not just courteous but warm and gracious service. She had the bartender double check...on my husband’s drink order to make sure it was exactly what he wanted. The meal itself was exquisitely prepared. We shared a perfectly seared ahi tuna (deep red rare in the middle-yum!) and a monkfish risotto. Both were absolutely delicious. After our meal concluded, she brought us to the back to introduce us to the whole kitchen staff including the masterful chef. Everyone was so kind. In our three weeks of traveling all around Portugal this month, this experience earned top honors. Make a reservation. You will not regret it. Cheers!More

Stopped here to break up a road trip, and picked this restaurant based on other TripAdviser Reviews. We were not disappointed. This was one of the best meals we had in Portugal. Everything was deliciously fresh, thoughtfully prepared and we were well advised on what...to chose by our server. The food and service exceeded expectations. This is a gem of a restaurant. If you are in the area don’t miss it!!More

What a great restaurant Alento is. The risotto Tamboril was really good and the tiramisu as well! . But who really made our night was Flavio! Sometimes you meet special people in life. Flavio is definitely one of them. We wish him all the best!

This restaurant is high quality all around. My family and I had a great dinning experience. Excellent food and wine. You must try razor clams (lingueirão) mmmm. We went a second time as they were so tasty… Flávio and restaurant staff were very attentive, warm...and welcoming. Highly recommend. 5*More

It is wise to book a table in advance! At entrance a warm reception and you are leaded to your table. A cool atmosphere. We were lucky to have Paulo, an Alentejano young man that made the most to make us feel well. Starters were...great. Pay attention to the typical bread within a nice cloth bag and resting over a bark of cork oak. We shared two dishes that the Chef was kind enough to split in the kitchen and serve first one than another. We had a delicious risotto of saffron mushrooms and chestnuts and a roasted rack of lamb in a bed of vegetables and crunch bread. To accompany a red Alentejano wine Jose de Sousa a blend with Grand Noir an uncommon grape in Portugal. In summary a cool ambience, great food and top service. A note as well to Flávio that speaks perfect English among other languages and did the most to make us feel well.More
