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.

The wines choice was huge and good. The atmosphere was very nice. The building is modern but its not cold. I recommend it, and... More

We were visiting the area, so a dinner at the DOC was a must. We had the menu #1 with the wine package #2 and everything worked great. The food/wine pairings worked well and the service was very good. The starter and the desserts were the highlights. If I knew Portuguese and would live in the area (more time) I... More

With all wonderful reviews we expected much more. We arrived to a relatively empty restaurant with staff ready to serve. The night started with a gift from the chef, a pork salad burger for me and a salmon one for my wife. It was a nice gesture, but both were dry and under seasoned. We shared a scallop carpaccio with... More

As part of our Douro Exclusive package, we stopped at DOC for lunch. Lovely location overlooking the Douro River. Our lunch was very good with Portuguese food taken up a notch. Each serving was paired beautifully with a nice Port or Wine. While the food was very good, the service was beyond excellent and would rival any Michelin starred restaurant.... More
