THIS IS A RESTAURANT NOT A SITE TO VISIT - NOT SURE WHY IT IS HERE ON TRIP ADVISOR!! We ate at Quinta dos Carvalhos three times during our weeks stay at the nearby Vidago Palace and were really glad that we did. It was close enough to walk to and although there were not many other diners, we were... More

Restaurant really caters to the Vidago palace hotel and tries to offer a little more luxury then other local ones but I found the food fairly average and very expensive for local area. Not a bad restaurant but I wouldn't go back, if you have a car Chaves is a short trip with better more affordable places.

Made a stop in Vidago and this place was recommended by the hotel vidago palace. The owners are really nice, not sure why they tried to kill me with food and wine. But nevertheless, a good way to go.... They have an appetizer deal they call the chef's surprise, well it is a surprise that keeps on coming. I don't... More

We’ve stayed at the Palace Hotel and we dine there once, which I recommend, not so much for the food but for the atmosphere. The remaining days we ate at Quinta dos Carvalhos. This restaurant was a big surprize to me, the food, the variety, the Wine list and even the facilities. I must say everything I ate there was... More

Despite Trip Advisor lists it as "Things to Do" in Vidago instead of "Restaurants", it is a must-go restaurant. If you are staying in the excellent Palace Vidago Hotel in Vidago, it takes you only a 5 min walk to get there. It's a much better choice than the hotel restaurant (with typical food and much less expensive). The food... More

We had dinner at this restaurant when staying nearby at the vidago palace hotel. The restaurant is an easy walk away.The atmosphere is friendly and welcoming. The food was delicious and exceptional value for the quality (2 Eur for soup, 3 Eur for dessert) . We would recommend it to anyone staying at the hotel .
