Back in ancient times, the Portuguese called Goa - Golden Goa as it was a link to the outside world - the main port for activity. Welcome to the Bohemian area called 'Al Fama' transporting the diners to that mythical place. The Alfama town square in Lisbon is the inspiration for the restaurant. The unique ambience of this intimate restaurant has romantic balconies and alcoves for musicians to serenade guests during a candle-lit dinner. A replica of the original town, right to the twinkling stars embedded in the ceiling overhead right here in Goa. A must-try is one of the signature dishes - Pan Fried Tiger Prawns served with Amaranth, Mashed Potatoes and Peri-Peri Chilli sauce. Brought in by the Portuguese from Mozambique its spiced flavours still titillate the taste buds. Move on to the Oven Roasted Rack of Lamb with Celery Mint Croquette, Pickled Tomato, Wilted Spinach and Vindaloo Sauce. Let your choice of desserts lie in the Saffron Spiced Panna Cotta with Milk Dumplings, one of the many preparations the chefs are willing to trade from their kitchens.
We went here for a Fado night and it was a surreal experience . Fado is a Portuguese song narrative, the restaurant had a special menu during the Fado. We loved the prawns starters along with the soup. The main course in chicken was okay however the desserts which was a combination of 3 : pudding , icecream and cashew cake ( the best one ) ended it extremely well to go along with the beautiful Fado performances . A different experience , this happens on every first Tuesday of the month , if you are around do go and see this along with some delectable food
Alfama does a great Fado on the first Tuesday of each month. The accompanying cuisine specially crafted by the chef is a blend of Portguese and Goan styles and flavours. This is a great way to experience Portuguese Fado music accompanied by delicious food. The 4-course menu consisted of a salad, soup, main course of dessert. The fish salad was delicate and the yogurt panacotta was creamy and delicious. The egg bread soup made for a great second course. For mains we sampled the tenderloin and the King fish - both of which were very well prepared. We requested for the tenderloin to be cooked "medium rare" and the chef obliged. The King fish too was cooked perfectly. The Tentugal pastry filled with coconut custard and topped with orange ice cream was a lovely way to round off the meal. The team at Alfama really know how to look after their guests.
Nice fine dining restaurant. Very peaceful ambience. Specialises in Goan food. Must try the grilled lobster. Also try the Goan fish curry. Service is good.
My wife and tried the three course menu and were pretty satisfied at the end of it. Their chicken cafreal is must try and so also their salads. The restaurant has a quaint look to is and mimics balconies where you can dine.
One evening we changed to take our food here and paid balance as we had our food included in the main restaurant at the Hotel. This is a lovely restaurant we the best food we had during our visit. Lovely environment and nice staff serving. Thanks for the nice music.
