Our traditional codfish recipies alternate with seafood and fish, wich were put together to be enjoyed between family and friends, in a warm and cozy ambient. The rich and tasty dishes from the homeland, Portugal, are served by a considerate staff that will have the pleasure of welcoming new costumers as well as those who are already part of our house.
With 25 years of good stories, Alfaia invites you for an unforgettable experience! Come visit us and be a part of our family!
Good memories are made (and remade) at the table. Better yet when they are harmonized with good companies and a traditional codfish. With that in mind, Alfaia opened its doors in 1989, bringing the real “House of Codfish” to Copacabana.
Coming from an experienced group of friends, united by the pleasure of serving a good meal, the project soon mobilized the family’s members, wich never moved away from the restaurant. Even the name was a suggestion of the matriarch of the Monteiro Family: in their most cherished memories of Portugal was the Faia, a leafy tree that united loved ones in its shadow.
