Great view and great food. It’s gets pretty busy outside so there will be a wait for both a table and for food (about an hour) so grab some sangria and enjoy the water and free WiFi.

There are not loads of places by the seafront but we stopped here for a coffee and a snack. The food was average and took quite a while to be served. Drinks were ok too.

Premium location, on the beach, stunning sunset, immersed in the sound of the waves and the smell of the sea. Just for that it would be worth the visit. But add to that some good food, great wine and amazing sangria and you have one...More

Located right by the Matosinhos Anemona and overlooking the beach, Vagas is a good spot for a swift coffee, beer or snack. The missus and I popped in twice during our stay in Matosinhos - once for an afternoon beer when we first arrived in...More

We ate here twice and both times the food was delicious. We had seafood both times and it was cooked to perfection. The servers were busy but attentive and you can't beat the view.

Right on the beach - the scenery is excellent. But the food is average. Service was friendly. Eat inside or outside.

We visited Vagas two days ago and enjoyed the view and food so much we went there twice in one day. We had a seat on the patio in view of the ocean both times. A bottle of sparkling wine was 12 Euro and food...More

Food and drinks are ok, and a bit expensive. The best of this place is the view, if you can be in the part you see the ocean. About service, it is poor. Usually - and I already tried three times - the waiters do...More
