Fodor's Expert Review Bagoeira

$ Barcelos Portuguese

Vendors from the town's Thursday market favor this rustic restaurant with its wooden ceiling, black-metal chandeliers, and vases of fresh flowers. Grelhados (grilled meats and fish) are prepared in full view of hungry customers on a huge old range that splutters and hisses. Other regional dishes served here include rojões (tender fried pork) and papas de sarrabhulho, a stew thickened with pig's blood. The restaurant seats hundreds of diners—and often has to on market days. If you get carried away with the house wine, there is a modern hotel attached (the website has more information on both).
