I've owned a cabin and bit of bush in the Lac La Hache area since 1990. I've always had to temper my expectations of local restaurants, but not any more, now that I've found Vidas! In fact, I dare say that I may have had one of the nicest meals last week among any restaurant I've ever visited, from Vancouver to Toronto to Dublin or Oslo. This place is wonderful, with excellent service, outstanding food (quality and menu selection), great atmosphere and very appropriate pricing. A value and a gem and one should not pass by.
My extended family passed through last week and on a whim we decided on Vidas. Decor is log cabin, simple, cozy and clean with burgundy interior walls and local art tastefully hung. A nice view to the south over the lake would make a beautiful sunset meal. Tables, settings all clean and modern. Plenty of parking out front and easy to find from the highway.
We ordered a very reasonably priced bottle of red wine and perished the menu. Choices were excellent including chicken, turkey, lamb and pasta. Everyone, including the vegetarians, found something that appealed to them. My kids both ordered a mushroom Alfredo pasta, half-order size. I had the turkey breast with lemon wine reduction and baked potato. What arrived was a beautiful plate with a modest portion of turkey balanced with excellent sides including red cabbage, beets, carrot, corn-on-the-cob and potato. All perfectly prepared, hot and flavourful. Quite a surprise to have an elegant meal rich with sides. The turkey was perfectly prepared, tender, and well matched to the meal.
Five adults, two kids, bottle of wine, milk for the kids and juice for grandpa, and three desserts plus tip for $200 was a very reasonable dinner out indeed.
My father had stopped by the night before (a Saturday) and the place was packed. They recommended we make a reservation for Sunday, which we did, but it turned out quiet that night with just a couple of tables plus ours. Nice conversation with friendly locals was a plus.
What a jem!
