We ate here as part of a tour with Douro Exclusive Tours. We can't say enough good about this restaurant. Gorgeous location, wonderful service and amazing food. Quite frankly our meal here was one of the most enjoyable meals we have ever eaten. We started with sparkling wine and local breads. The amuse bouche was lovely (a pork slider). We... More

Often, as my rule of thumb, restaurants with 'outstanding', 'awesome' or 'breathtaking' views serve average food as you're distracted by what's outside of the window and not on your plate. DOC breaks this rule. The food was outstanding, awesome and breathtaking...it was also very tasty and I'd have happily sat with my eyes closed and eaten my meal. The restaurant... More

When on holiday I tend to steer clear of "celebrated" restaurants, as they are places I can (and do) visit in London where they are usually better. This place is good though. The location is wonderful - perched on the edge of the Douro. Service crisp and professional, but right side of friendly. Food, a delight. Special, different but not... More

Great food and service. Staff speak very good English . I had the Menu do Azeite (olive oil tasting menu) with wine pairing - €105. Excellent! Right next to the Douro River. Great food, service and location.

When in this part of the Douro Valley the DOC is a must. You'll be cheating yourself out of a spectacularly European view and an onslaught of sophisticated culinary expressions with the possibility to enjoy it all with expertly paired wines from the region. Somehow my glass was never empty. Don't live in regret!

Superb place, delicious food, great staff and professional service. Huge selection of wines. The food is modern, one may say mediterranean but with a subtile but noticeable portugese touch. Loved it, I went there twice during my stay and will go back!

A surprisingly modern, spacious (with large terrace) refined restaurant on the banks of the Douro, in the small village of Folgosa, Armamar. Both imaginative menus and a la carte; great wine list; superb service! Very nice salads, great fish and tasty suckling pig, inter alia! Attention is paid to presentation and details; there are complimentary little pre-starters, a selection of... More

It's a beautiful location but much more. Rui Paula offers intense flavours through some fine dishes, we had excellent cabrito and monkfish amongst many very fine dishes. They don't forget the fine wines that the whole of the north of Portugal offers and the service is friendly but well judged. I will be back.

If you're looking for the latest in culinary development - go to DOC. Food was very good, inventive, modern - as was the decor. Staff friendly. Good wine.

Quite pricey, but very interesting food, so worth it for a treat. I had roast kid with kid rice. Very good. Petit fours at the end included a white chocolate filled with olive oil. Surprising and delicious. Fantastic wine list and lovely setting on the river.
