Reflecting the spirit of the Douro vineyard, the restaurant has a ceiling "torn" by giant wine leaves. The winding "wine cellar" surrounds the entire space. Marble, velvet and wood dominate the various dining rooms, open or in more reserved nooks. The dining room extends outside where a comfortable esplanade overlooks a magnificent view of Porto.
