We got there by chance as everything was fully booked. The restaurant didn't have any table available either but accommodated my family for some tapas. Everything was great, highly recommendable. Service was also awesome and price reasonable.

Despite the fact that I am Spanish and also come from the área, it took my english friends who came over for my wedding to give this place a go. They loved it so much they booked again for the following night. Then my husbang and I decided to take my parents and some friends for dinner and we went... More

Being here for the second time and again very impressed with the modern touch given to local products, sometimes with an oriental twist. This restaurant is located in the back of a long unwelcoming hall, where every sound person would have doubts to enter (not that it is dangerous, after all you're in the safe mountains) because you don't expect...

Most elaborated food in town by far. Great presentation for each plate, very original dishes and pretty good price Really enjoyed the ternasco (baby lamb), hake and cod were also of excellent quality Deserts very elaborated, enjoyed the home made yogurt a lot. All of this with a nice bottle of Somontano for 30 € per head: unbeatable

I took some Spanish friends to Vidocq as I had enjoyed it so much two years ago. I was very disappointed this time. There was nobody in reception, no one to take our coats, we had to wait ages to be seated. It was cold so I kept my coat round my shoulders. No menus were offered until we had... More

It was driving snow outside but the atmosphere in Vidocq was warm and welcoming. And the food was delicious. Comforting rich casserole was perfect. Formigal has some great places to eat but this is the best in my view.

This restaurant is a nice break from the other restaurants in the wonderful ski resort of Formigal. We visit everytime we are in Formigal in the winter and went again last August. The food is of a high standard and the service attentive although if you don't speak or read Spanish it is difficult to understand what you are ordering... More

To cut to the chase, we would not return to Vidocq. Ever. Maybe if someone else were paying. Maybe. This is a hard review to write because of "overall ratings," as there was an unevenness in our experience. So here goes: The restaurant is lovely, the service, attentive and professional. In the bouillabaisse-style soup (main course), the fish was overcooked,... More
