Rui Paula

Soul Kitchen

The creative source of Rui Paula’s dishes focuses on the use of genuine regional produce: a kitchen that absorbs inspiration from the Northeast-Douro region to which the Chef gives a personal touch. However DOC’s cuisine is not only about regional products: with the sea nearby, it was fundamental to complement it with the best fish from our coast, crossing concepts where contemporary and traditional gastronomy intersect in a perfect symbiosis.

About

In the heart of the Douro Wine Region

Stunning scenery

Located in Folgosa, Armamar, on the road along the river between Régua and Pinhão, DOC is one of the most beautiful and romantic scenic routes in the country.

The building, which lays on a pillar base, extends over an elegant wooden deck over the river, and includes a river structure integrating two piers – with a capacity for 15 boats – a wine cellar and a car park.
