Sharing is caring, and Milagro Spanish Restaurant in Singapore’s Orchard Central cares very much about Spanish food. So much so, that owner Raymond has kept the prices of his classic, beautifully plated tapas good and low, so he can share his love for Spanish delicacies with as many people as possible. The setting of his Orchard Road restaurant is unfussy, understated, but charmed – like the Spanish and Basque food and drink you’ll find on the menu.
Basque country stews, paella from Valencia, Catalonian desserts, fine vintages from La Rioja and beer from Barcelona, or, heck, a martini glass of leche de toro – a celebratory measure of genuine bull’s milk. The proof is certainly in that particular pudding – there’s a true passion for Spanish cuisine at work at Milagro, the restaurant that is quick becoming the default destination for tapas in Singapore. Already popular with in-the-know gourmets, Milagro’s chic Orchard Central mall premises are incredibly convenient to shoppers along Orchard Road. Book a spot before it’s too late and discover the charms of Spanish tapas for yourself.
If patatas bravas, salted and sautéed pimientos de padron, Galician octopus, or simply the word tapas doesn’t impel you to book a table and hop on the nearest form of transport to take you to Orchard Road and Milagro’s Iberian heaven, then perhaps their weekday lunchtime set menu will. If you’re walking or working in or around Orchard Central, why not pop in to Milagro and check out what the chefs have prepared on a given day. With small-sized, affordable (and all the more moreish) tapas, the sky’s the limit when it comes to culinary imagination. Milagro even like to challenge Singapore’s foodies to try their chilli crab tapas, and test whether the Spanish version holds up against the Singaporean classic. We think Milagro passes with flying colours!
Great service, great food. Love their soft shell chilli crab tapas with a local twist. The 20% discount on mains if you order before 7pm made it value for money. Will definitely be back!
Good service from the young female waitress and overall good food. My two friends who were in this restaurant for the first time were impressed. 😊☺️😀🤗👍
My second visit.. Still worth to spend your money. I will definitely coming back here with friends. Sometimes they don't have records of the reservation. Jejejej
Food was great and there was a happy hour promotion we took advantaged of since we came early. Ambience is suitable for a date or gatherings.
Was surprised the quality of food was very good. We ordered a variety of tapas - beef stew soup, calamari, tortilla, buffalo wings, croquette, patatas bravas, jamon and a squid ink paella to share and was pleasantly surprised with the portion sizes to be rather generous and to be very reasonably priced. It was all very tasty without being over powering and salty which can often happen. Special mention to the patatas bravas so nicely done, simple but very tasty. The service was good even though it is not charged - we thought the service was great and worth tipping. Kudos for all food arriving piping hot too which is quite rare in a lot of restaurants it seems. The atmosphere was nice and staff allowed you to sit and chat after the meal without feeling you will be rushed out. I would like to add the self service bread was quite a delight. Some of the nicest fresh bread I've had in Singapore for a while - and you simply go to and help yourself. Only slight comment on the squid ink paella perhaps need to be eaten before eating anything too overpowering. I made the mistake eating the buffalo wings just before I ate the rice and I couldn't fully taste the rice until halfway through. Would definitely return again to try more tapas.
Pretty good experience, nice view out the window, promised and delivered. Recommended: - Mushroom soup with truffle oil - Very rich and delicious; felt like the mushroom bits were chunkier than the other ones you get out there, the sliced mushrooms were just exploding with flavor - Chicken Harissa - Nice cut, tender and juicy; with delicious spicy sauce! - (Dessert) Leche Fritas- Less usual, but the crispy outer skin with the rich filling just complemented the meal so well - Grand marnier infused cream caramel - It's real awesome too, the creme was literally lit on flames, the cream taste was really rich but I guess that with the rest of the lunch menu I'm too full to enjoy this one any further, still worth trying though Neutral: More ordinary, but not bad - Soft shell crab - Pasta with Jamon With regard to the app, there wasn't any issues, I guess I just didn't know if the staff at the end confirmed that they processed the reservation. They eventually did.
The food was not that good. The Octopus a la Gallega was just normal chewy octopus with not much of flavour. The Champignon Mushrooms al Ajillo (Spicy) was super salty which we feedbacked to the waiter and the chef made us a new one but it was still really salty. The rest of the food were alright. The drinks - White sangria, was quite expensive since they only serve by glass. When asked if a jug was available, waiter replied that mixing it by glass is more authentic and tastes better. That was unacceptable because the other authentic Spanish restaurants we've been actually had a choice of glass or jug for more people.
My friend and I visited Milagro for dinner on 1 September. The Norwegian Salmon was really good as it was fresh although a tad salty for me. We were very impressed with the waitress who was very courteous. Although she was busy clearing another table, she responded to our call for assistance without hesitant. Her amicable smile enhanced her excellent service! Kudos to her! We sincerely wish her all the best in her endeavours...
3 of us met up for lunch at Milagro. It was nice and quiet on a weekday noon, with only 3 or 4 tables (including us) filled. I had the healthy bowl that consists of brown rice, butternut squash, broccoli, shimeiji mushrooms, bean sprouts and pan seared tuna. Ok, not exactly Spanish but delicious nonetheless, though I wish i had the option to replace the brown rice with another veggie. My friends ordered the black angus ribeye, and they both agreed it was good.
Lovely food although they ran out of two items I wanted to order by 8pm. The crowd seems to be done by 8pm, so the waiters were buzzing around before that. Complimentary self service bread was amazing as well. The paella was served in a very generous serving. Will be back for the paella and the octopus that we didnt get to order!
