The food here is just stunning. The attention to detail from the staff was amazing and you can see they take pride in the restaurant. Every mouthful of everyone's meal was simply outstanding and well worth the price tag!

I could have easily called this review "expensive, but worth it." This without doubt will be one of the most expensive meals you eat in Portugal. And also one of the best. DOC is located up a beautiful river valley, all by itself, nestled in...More

Everything about this restaurant is amazing! The food is great, the service, the wine list, the view, location, everything! I highly recommend it! But of course, it is quite expensive, but was worth the amazing pleasing lunch!

Description
Douro is river, villages and suspended vineyards on imposing slopes. It's wine with designation of origin but also D.O.C, Taste of Certified Origins. It was based on this analogy that, in 2007, the DOC restaurant was born. Situated in Folgosa, Armamar, on the road between Regua and Pinhao, in what is one of the most beautiful scenic routes in the country, the restaurant occupies a building of contemporary lines with a picket based that extends along an elegant wooden deck overlooking the river. Designed by the architect Michael Scott, the structure also includes a river dock with capacity for 15 boats, a wine cellar and a car park. It's a place of enormous beauty, blending the grandeur of the vineyard covered mountains and the serenity of the Douro river and the riverside villages, only awakened by the regular passage of the train. DOC serves as a window on this breathtaking scenery, making every meal a unique and special moment. Since it opened, the restaurant has been the target of a growing recognition of press and public. David Lopes Ramos, the 'Publico' renowned food critic, thus referring to DOC, in an article published in the 'Fugas' supplement: "DOC is a unique case, because, alone, made the Douro kitchen Douro sophisticated and creative in a level previously unknown. This in Douro, our most prestigious wine region. "
