We visited Vidago in a cold night of December. When we entered the restaurant, we got not a very warm welcome by the owners but also a comfortable and warm room to have dinner. We ate the "naco", which is a piece of veal. It...More

Looks nothing from the front but entrance at back reveals a spacious modernist restaurant. Family run with great atmosphere and fun loving staff. Little English but that is no barrier. Large portions of good quality local dishes. Many dishes have to be preordered e.g. Goat...More
