We stayed in Quinta de la Rosa for 3 days and ate in the restaurant every evening - never disappointed! Try booking Clara's table - it's a great experience!

I am glad you enjoyed eating at Claires table - it can be quite fun meeting whoever happens to be staying. And I am also thrilled you ate at our restaurant every night of your stay.

Easily one of the best food experiences in Douro! Food was wonderful, service was excellent and the view of the river is breathtaking! You must visit this place if you are around Pinhão. Also recommend touring Quinta de la Rosa and tasting their ports!

Description
The philosophy of Cozinha da Clara is to serve local Portuguese cuisine at its best – simplicity is the key. We also want to include a touch of the family’s heritage, by adding some of my grandmother, Claire’s favourite recipes. Executive chef, Pedro Cardoso, has worked in the Douro for over 10 years. Using locally sourced products and vegetables from our garden (named “Paradise” by Claire), Pedro has developed many of his recipes from the Tras-os-Montes. Sit outside on the terrace, the restaurant must boast as having one of the best views of the Douro River. A great place to come and taste La Rosa wines and ports.
