A clean but atmospheric restaurant that somehow manages to combine modern lightness with traditional elements like heavy wood, stone, wine barrels and the like. As a result, you'll feel right at home whether you are wearing a tuxedo or T-shirt. The staff is well-trained to cater to international clientele and the owner moves about, chatting up customers and asking if... More

I had dinner here twice. The wine list is extensive, service great, and food fabulous! Dinner portions are generous, and could be shared if you have smaller appetites.

The lunch time buffet brings self service to a new level in Joao Pessoa. Unlike most of the other buffet restaurants the choice is limited but adequate. The standard excellent.

Adega was a great experience we had in João Pessoa, everybody well dressed, good food, great caipirinhas. The appetizer was regular, nothing special. It's very full, I recommend skip rush time or make a reservation prior. Good for couples, it's a romantic place.

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 food at the Adega is nearly always up to standard and the portions quite generous. The salt cod dishes are perhaps its strongest point. However, the service on our last visit to the restaurant was very slow and we even had to ask for the bill twice.

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.

Em 1979, surgia em Joao Pessoa , com o projeto de Janete Costa, uma tipica casa portuguesa: pequenina , mas muito charmosa. Com segredos que atravessaram o mar e geracoes, a Adega abriu suas portas e uma nova fase da gastronomia em Joao Pessoa.
Hoje o restaurante expandiu seus horizontes, incorporando sabores alem- mar e mais conforto para seus clientes com um ambiente agradavel e sofisticado. Tudo isso sem perder o charme e a tradicao de uma tipica casa portuguesa, com certeza.
