About the restaurant Cozinha da Clara

Wonderful open terrace with views overlooking the Douro river. Easily accessible from Pinhão. Set in a working vineyard so you have an opportunity to taste all the wines and ports from the family owned property. You can visit the vineyards and winery separately. There are 23 rooms available to stay on the property.
Cozinha da Clara is named after the owner's grandmother, Claire who was given the vineyard, Quinta de la Rosa as a christening present over 100 years ago. Renowned chef Pedro Cardoso comes locally from the Douro and is passionate about local ingredients and developing recipes from the Tras os Montes.

Beautiful setting, excellent food, and very good and very friendly service. A bit noisy for our liking due to a large tour group, but overall very pleasing.

Excellent food in a gorgeous restaurant right above the Douro River. The reserve wines from the winery itself were very good and reasonably priced. Service was excellent to start with, but fell off as the evening progressed.

We arrived at 8 PM (20:00). Looks like most of the patrons arrived at 7:30. The staff was flying around the place doing their best, but it was 15 minutes until we got some water and 40 minutes until wine, meals came at 9:15PM.
We are americans, so this was not our expected time frame - all that being said, the meal was outstanding! The view and setting are beautiful and well worth the trip. We ordered the chicken, quinoa salad and Iberian Pork - all were superb and flavorful. The House Red (Quinta de la Rosa) is all you need, right from the barrels next door.
If you are on a budget and expect to be attended to and served promptly, this is probably not the place to go. If you want a great meal and in idyllic setting - do not miss this place.

We had an 8:30 reservation and wished to sit outside. We were told there would be a short wait for a table. 30 minutes later, no one had updated us on our table & three tables were empty outside. We approached staff again and were Finally seated. One dinner of Iberian pork was so-so. The other, chicken was delicious. The wine was great. Being ignored for half an hour was not acceptable.

Slow service before order taken but the view isa lovely way to wait. From ordering onwards the service could not be faulted nor could the food. Wine was quite good as well. We will certainly go back.

Sunny terrace overlooking the Duoro. Quality restaurant with helpful friendly service - speak English. Tasty local ingredients presented inventively. Generous portions of lamb! Choice of their own Quinta de La Rosa wines and ports.

Food was delicious, we ate here for 2 nights. On the first night we were able to sit outside on the terrace and thsi together with the food made it a truly enjoyable evening. The secong night we had to sit inside due to bad weather, and though the food was again of a high standard the ambience wasn't quite the same. Try and vsiit when the weather is good!

beautiful building and grounds with a gorgeous ocean view. indoor and outdoor seating available. tables are big and elegantly set. dining chairs are very comfortable. first class all the way. food preparation, presentation, and quality is excellent. very creative menu with an emphasis on octopus but plenty of other options that can satisfy all diners. executive chef / owner and his lovely wife spent time chatting with us which always adds to a memorable dining experience. waiters were knowledgeable, responsive, and good guys. i work in New York City and have dined in fine restaurants around the world. do not hesitate to book a table.

Service was extremely inconsistent
We could have ordered another bottle of wine if our serverd were more attentive to maintaining the wine at our table we had to call them over for all parts of our meal and for our check at the end
