Buried in the Douro Valley's wine vineyard cloaked hills and a small village dedicated to creating exceptional wines, is a precious restaurant serving scumptious local dishes with an elegant, personally attentive flare and care. Similar to the humble restaurant's exterior sheltering a uniquely rich and warm persona, under Rosario's genuine interest and passionate devolution to delivering to guests some of... More

The restaurant is situated in s small village about 40 minutes of driving from Peso da Regua and the route there is alone worth taking. The road which lead to Toca da Rapose offers splendid views to Douro river and valley though it must be mentioned that the road is very narrow and not recommend for drivers who are shy...... More

This is certainly one of the best restaurants in Douro, excellent regional food and very friendly service. Great wine list, paired with knowledgeable advice from the staff. We came here twice during our stay in the region - its definitely worth a visit.

Set in the mountains above the Douro valley, this small family run restaurant offers excellent regional quisine with friendly service. Don't go if you're after a quick bite, for this is a whole evening. Advice on wine is happily given, but go for the locally made ones from the village. Never had a bad meal there, in two years of...

The food and wine were really great. If you are looking for a special yet traditional meal from the Douro region the Toca da Raposa is definitely the right choice. I had a great four course menu with matching wines from the Douro valley to a quite reasonable price. Also the service left nothing to be desired. The waiter was... More

We had engaged a tour company, Wander Steps, to take us around the Douro Valley Region. Lunch at the Toca da Raposa was included in our tour. A very modern restaurant located in a small village in the mountains surrounded by vineyards. Not much of a view from inside but who cares when you can dine like we did. Service... More
