Considered to be an indispensable reference for modern cuisine and distinguished with a Michelin star, Chef Rui Paula’s dishes reveal the memory of his origins, preserving flavors, textures, aromas and colors, in surprising recreations, full of originality.
Born in Oporto, simplicity and sense of humor shaped his personality. His Portuguese Northeastern roots fostered his taste for cooking, and the women within the family – his mother and grandmother – inspired the bases that would transform him into the professional he is today: passionate, original and surprising.
Memory of generations, of aromas and flavors which are recreated in every new combination, to achieve palate emotions that result in a ‘ethnic-emotional’ cuisine, with no geographical limits on creation and influences.
In the consolidated knowledge and constant search for creativity and innovation, Rui Paula is rigorous when choosing products – always fresh and of quality – handling them so that his creations meet the most modern and avant-garde trends, combined with creative and original techniques, without ever losing the genuine taste.
His curiosity is endless, resulting in unique fusion combinations, made from crossing products from around the world.
The three Rui Paula restaurants, located in different environments, offer diverse gastronomic experiences.
Found within the heart of the Douro Wine Valley, DOC celebrates flavors in a unique landscape. DOP, in the historic center of Oporto, evokes gastronomic memories of colors and textures. His most recent project, but already well-established, is Boa Nova Tea House, in Leça da Palmeira, designated as a National Monument and distinguished with a Michelin star. Here, eyes upon the sea, all the senses are awake.
