Stopped here while walking the Camino Portuguese. It was lunchtime and crowded with locals and pilgrims alike. The atmosphere was rustic-cozy with a nice bar in front and a separate dining room in back as well as several tables adjacent to the bar. I ended up sharing a table with three local businessmen who (even with my limited Portuguese and their limited English) were kind and most welcoming. They even helped me choose what was good to eat from the menu. I enjoyed a large plate of bachalau croquettes, a bowl of rice and beans, and a delicious and rich vegetable soup. I think the bill was about 7 euros - fabulous value! The proprietor, Antonio, who is featured in my Camino guidebook was super friendly and kept checking in on me throughout my meal to make sure everything was okay. He even signed my guidebook. And this is why I walk the Camino - to discover off-the-beaten-path towns with authentic and compassionate people who treat strangers as new friends.
