Expensive by Portugal standards

Nice restaurant with good service but expensive and quite pretentious in comparison to other near by restaurants. Would still recommend but would also recommend exploring other near by treasures for more inexpensive but equally tasty food.

You can't do much wrong with this place. We had the suprise entrees for three persons, the barcon-larded steaks and the cod "quinta style". Pretty much everything was perfect, the steaks were excellently grilled. Service was friendly and the prices are reasonable, like 10-14 for a main course per person and around 14-25 for a main course for two persons... More

We love this restaurant. Everytime we go there, we go to taste the wonderful food of this restaurant. The boss will advice good wines. Cooking is just simple, great and you enjoy from small tapas, to meat or fish. All the family is taking care of you. We will come back next year

I was looking for a restaurant in the region, and found Quinta dos Carvalhos here, I'm TripAdvisor. I am glad I did, because the food was amazing, the owners were extremely nice, it was an all-around great experience. We had the pork "pernil" roasted in the oven, and the meat was very tender, and well cooked, with just the right... More

We can only agree with all the good things that have already been said. Food quality was superb, with great wine all at a good price. We can highly recommend. We ate on a Saturday night and were glad we booked earlier. The place got really busy as the evening progressed but the small team seemed able to cope well.

This family run restaurant was recommended by the concierge at the Vidago Palace. We didn't expect much but were blown away. The hospitality was warm and charming. The room was basic but clean and fresh. However, the food was simply out of this world. Down to earth, hearty local fare. Simply prepared from the best ingredients. The veal was so... More

Tucked away close to The Vidago Palace hotel, where we stayed, is the Dos Canvallos restaurant. A family run restaurant which provides top quality food at a very reasonable price. Excellent friendly service by the owners Carlos, Audreia and Maria Jose. Spent several evenings there and also recommended it to other guests we met at The Vidago Palace, they enjoyed... More

set in the village of Vidago, within walking distance of the Vidago Palace Hotel is this gem of a restaurant. Veal and pork dishes seem to be the specialities and there was food envy as each of the dishes were brought out! Good value for money
