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.

Our meals were delicious, especially the Chicken 2 ways and the Iberian Pork. The reduction with each were exquisite. Best meal since arrival in Portugal 1 week ago, The Reserva wines clearly the winners when we shared the 2 flights of wine between the 3 of us. Cod Brule Amuse bouche didn't add much. Setting was so nice. Prices very reasonable.

Our regret was not planning an earlier meal start, we worried that the drive back in the dark to destination would be stressful, but it went fine.
Appreciated having the owner come introduce herself during our meal.
Would recommend.

The ambiance was great!
The location beautiful!
The food taste and presentation, serving size were excellent!
The dessert glorious!
The service solicitous and helpful!
If it has not received Michelin star, DEFINITELY deserves 1-3.
We had culinary experience, kudos to the Chef and staff.
Will repeat on our next visit to Pinhao.

The view was lovely.
The steak was over cooked and I would honestly say that I have had better meat in more local Portuguese restaurants.
I definitely wasn’t the worst food I’ve eaten but I feel like it’s a bit of a tourist trap and more about the view than quality of food.

Food was yummy, service was slow, but typical to slower Portuguese speeds. Disappointing in the fact that the whole reason we chose this restaurant was because of the view, but only seating available was inside, inside large glass doors that reflected the light back in and eliminated any view whatsoever

Last night in Pinhao. Restaurant recommended by hotel we were staying at. Arrived to a delightful view overlooking the river. We were graciously welcomed into a pleasant environment, beautifully complimented by the sound of Fado in the background. Menu was limited but everything looked inviting. I had the Portuguese rice and seafood dish, my wife had the sea bass on purée of pea. Both dishes exceeded expectations. What a wonderful evening and highly recommended.

We had a booking somewhere else but due to our amazing experience last night, we canceled the other reservation and went back to La Cozinha da Clara. The food is amazing, the staff makes sure everything is fine and they take care of every little details. The local olive oil is delicious, we even purchased some to bring back home. Also, the wine pairing option is a great opportunity to discover some of their best wines. The starter comes with a white or rose, the main meal comes with red wine and the dessert with a delicious port. Since we came the day before, they remembered what we had and suggest something different. We felt like we were part of the family. Thank you for the great experience
