    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This was a welocme break from the travelling we were doing - we all neeeded lunch. The restauarnt appears to be part of a chain - but do not let that deter you.

    The atmosphere was good and I am sure when it is busy it is even better!

    Favorite Dish: pizza and beer

    Many: Shoes everywhere

    by solopes Updated Mar 1, 2015

    I can't resist! I have to tell you the story:

    We were strolling in the old quarter of Lugo, and I was surprised with TOOOOOOO many shoe stores, door after door.

    While Fernanda was enjoying the celestial pleasure, I kept looking around. Suddenly, at the end of the street, against the sun, a placard announced: "....atos para sordos".

    My god! "Sapatos para sordos"? Shoes for deaf people? How come?

    I had to approach, and, as soon as the sun was covered all the placard was displayed - "Aparatos para sordos".

    Do you see what despair can do to your mind?
