Just came back from Alfaia. It was fantastic. My wife and I ordered the cod fish balls as an appetizer. They were great. Then we had a half order of the octopus in the house style with sautéed sweet onions, the most incredible olives, green pepper and tomato. This was one of the best dishes I have ever eaten in 57 years. The octopus was gilled and incredibly tender. The flavors exploded in your mouth. My wife completely agreed. Then we had a 1/2 order of Cod Bahian style that was excellent, but paled against a dish fit for the gods. This was an incredible amount of food. The orders are large. We could not eat dessert. The restaurant is relatively small and the service was excellent. Portuguese everywhere; happy people celebrating. Great energy. We were there for 2 lovely hours. Total price with wine and tip was $R 226. The best place we ate during our time in Rio.
