We went there for lunch. The experience was great ! For less than 15€/pp we had a creme soup, squid or a duo of grilled meat and a wonderful gratin of fruit, wine and coffee. Food was tasty and worth a michelin recommendation. All this served in a wonderful place, with very attentive waiters. We saw some dishes served at... More

We went all the way to Vila Real just to eat here as we got it recommended. It was a Tuesday late evening and we had a baby. It was quiet which helped a lot the case. The food was delicious. We had the prawn with risotto and grilled fish. The staff was very nice. Worth the 40km in panoramic... More

We decided to try the Cais Da Villa restaurant based on the Trip Advisor reviews we read and were not disappointed. This place has a real quality ambiance and provides the food and service to match. We very much enjoyed the quality and presentation of the dishes ordered, together with the attentive waiter service. Thoroughly recommended.

went here based on reviews and wasn't disappointed! We wanted tapas and that was available in the bar area. Amazing grilled mushrooms, Huge portion best ever. Octopus was great too, very thinly sliced. Ended w a beautiful cheese board. Terrific setting in an old train yard building. Highly recommended.

People eat late here in a fashionable place to be. Mainly Portugese when we went on a warm Friday night. Some came just to have a coffee. Limited menu with enough choice and plenty of fish as well as beef. We had the monkfish and rice shared dish which was really perfect example of its type. And plenty of it... More

I can only agree with some of the superlatives expressed by others about this restaurant... it's 5 star in every respect. .. the service is attentive without being intrusive...the food inventive tasty and beautifully presented. .. the wine list almost exhaustive but so representative of what Portugal and in particular the Douro had to offer. ... decor a blend of...
