Dined here twice for dinner.

First time I had Scabbard fish as I'd not had it for a few years.Much as I remembered it,it was okay.Wife chose the Tuna steak(it was beautifully cooked)

2nd time of dining we both had the Tuna,it was as good as the first time.Would certainly recommend this choice(in fact we both had it again for lunch)can't remember the last time we'd had such a superb tasting fish dish.Chef and kitchen have a winner on their hands here?

Staff very pleasant and service as one would expect of a 4 star hotel.

Do try it if you are staying in hotel or nearby

Brilliant staff - excellent food served to the table - unhurried - quieter than some of the other restaurants - our favourite. Just a pity they close on Sundays and Mondays, but the staff are so good they deserve their days off.

Staff were very good and friendly and the food was excellent. The only shame was that the restaurant is closed Sunday and Monday.

Dear Client,

Just a short note to thank you for your feedback about Alfama and happy to learn that you have enjoyed it. Thank you also for sharing your opinion on TripAdvisor.

Regarding the closing days I have taken good note of it but please understand that we do have other gastronomic options within the Vila Porto Mare that can be a good alternative.

We will always be pleased to welcome you whenever you decide to visit us.

Warm regards

The menu has a good choice and the meals are very well presented. Like many Madeirian restaurants the chefs are a bit heavy on the salt for the British taste. Both meat and fish dishes were very good. Caters well for those with a Gluten Intolerance.

as this is predominantly a fish restaurant. It was very tasty but I didn't quite get the fried banana with it. The service is very good and it was fado night so we were entertained during our meal.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for being at Alfama restaurant. This restaurant is one of the four gastronomic options of Vila Porto Mare. Alfama is our Portuguese/madeira restaurant.
Fado night is an evening where we combine a fish theme night with Portuguese music Fado. Other days of the week the restaurant runs with a menu with local food options between fish and meat.

It will be a pleasure to see you in our place in a future visit to Madeira.

Warm regards

Muito obrigado,
