Absolutely beautiful in every way! The menu is innovative and delicious - I am still thinking about the eucalyptus soup! Brilliant setting, right on the river. Staff are exceptionally well trained and master the art of efficiency and neatness without creating too formal an environment. The chef visited each of the tables to introduce himself and talk about his food which was a really nice touch. Definitely recommend for a special family meal and, equally, for a romantic evening out as a couple. 5 stars and more, looking for an excuse to return to the douro valley and visit DOC again!
