This is a small restaurant with the dining room up a very narrow, winding stairs. Once there the room is very quaint and the food very well prepared in a very traditional Portuguese way.

A veal-steak of almost half a square meter (ok, that's a little bit exerated) very large portion of fries, good tomato salad, half a liter of good white wine, a coffee. And a glass of port-wine on the house. 12 €!

Vasco da Gama is a family owned and operated restaurant in the main street of Vinhais. They serve meals based on what's best in the region, and generally grilled. The meal is cooked by the couple who owns it, while their son (who came back to the town during vacation) serves the food. Everyone is very friendly and the food is amazing. We had the lamb and the steak, both recommendations from their son, and it was probably the most tender and tasty lamb we ever had. For desert, we had a homemade cake with nuts, and it was also one of the best cakes of this kind we ever had. Prices are very reasonable, and the experience was unique. Note: meals of this kind cannot be found in New York, where we live. It is amazing how simple cooking of the best ingredients is still the way to go, forget about fancy techniques and brand name chefs...
