My dish, pork roasted in a local manner with clam stuffed potatoes, was very good. My wife's, a specially ordered grilled sea bass was a bitter disappointment. Small, as in tiny, and without taste. The accompanying vegetables were OK. The exorbitant price (30 Euros) deepened...More

Great riverside setting and ambience. Excellent fine-dining style food - which is more than comparable with a 1 or even 2 Michellin star eatery. Excellent choice of wine (although a touch on the expensive side). Good and professional services. Enjoyed our dinner - thank you!

This splendid property cantilevered right over the Douro River in the middle of Douro wine country is a foodie destination for exquisite cuisine and an outstanding selection of wine. Be sure to view other members' photos so you can see DOC's remarkable location. Highly recommended.

We had a delicious lunch at the terrace. The food was good (just not as good as we expected). The location is amazing. Views are stunning. The chef made a special pasta for our kids. Service was not on the same level as the food...More

We had lunch there in December and attended in casual "wine tour" clothing. I think for dinner it would be very much the same. I would consider this an upper end restaurant but it is located in the countryside and I don't... More

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. "
