The Codfish at Adega do Alfredo was excellent! Should order the "Bacalhau com batata ao murro". It was simply delicious. The service was very good... Nice ambience... I tried a very good Portuguese prosecco.

The codfish dishes served at Adega do Alfredo are simply delightful. The single portions are sufficient for one person as they are sided by white rice or potatoes prepared in virgin oil an herbs.

Two visits there for dinner. Nice buffet and good choice of main dishes. Attentive service, good value, very enjoyable food. Pity about the pianist but you can't have everything. Recommended.

Nice setting. Good cold self-service buffet. Attentive service. Very good local cuisine. Try the thick-cut codfish, which was especially tasty.

We were initially a bit unsure about eating Portuguese food in Brasil but actually we enjoyed our meal here. The restaurant is located just off the beach near the tourist centre - a couple of minutes from the artisan market. It is in the building of a hotel (the Royal I think). It is quite dark inside.
