Loved it!

Thank you, we will be back!

The restaurant is very intimate, tables are very close together. Difficult to have a private conversation but you could easily sample another table's entree.

What You'll Get


A Portuguese restaurant is a better place for a date than a hole in the ground full of barking French dogs. Have an experience that’s both Portuguese and not traumatizing with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $39 for a Portuguese dinner for two (up to a $108 total value)
  • $72 for a Portuguese dinner for four (up to a $216 total value)<p>

For each person, dinner includes:

  • One appetizer (up to a $12 value)
  • One entree (up to a $32 value)
  • One glass of Alabastro vinho tinto, Monarchia Battonage chardonnay, Monte Velho vinho tinto, Quinta de Cabriz vinho branco, vinho rosé, or vinho verde (up to a $10 value)<p>

The menu includes appetizers such as fresh cow’s milk cheese with housemade walnut-raisin bread and entrees such as grilled scallops with watermelon and sautéed bacon-wrapped filet mignon with Mission figs.

Alfama Restaurant

Mimicking Magellan’s journey from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean in miniature, restaurant partners Tarcísio Costa and Miguel Jerónimo set sail with Alfama Restaurant from the West Village to Midtown East after a decade in business. At their new location, they infuse Portuguese flavors into modern dishes inflected by the country’s former colonies in Brazil, Southern Africa, and the Indian state of Goa. In the kitchen, executive chef Carlos Arriaga sautés bacon-wrapped filet mignon and serves it with Mission figs and grills scallops to plate with fresh watermelon for an entree as refreshing as a nap in an ice chest. The restaurant’s in-house bakery opens each day at 11 a.m. to serve freshly baked breads such as Pão de Deus, a brioche-like sweet bread with a coconut crust.

Behind the marble bar, bartenders pour crisp, light-bodied vinho verdes—featured in Wine Spectator for their felicitous pairing with heirloom tomatoes—from a mostly-Portuguese wine list. Though cocktails aren’t central to Portugal’s drinking culture, wine and spirits director Costa still makes sure that each has a relevant story to tell: “One cocktail, the Route to the Indies, is inspired by Magellan the navigator—when he was looking for the Spice Islands in the East,” he told the Village Voice of a potion that included curry powder and orange anise liqueur.

The dining area reflects the bright flavors of the food with vivid orange banquettes and blue and white tile work. The restaurant’s focus on Portuguese trade routes shines through as well: walls are ornamented with both the scenery of a Portuguese village and glass-stenciled maps of the world.

At their new location, they infuse Portuguese flavors into modern dishes inflected by the country’s former colonies in Brazil, Southern Africa, and the Indian state of Goa. In the kitchen, executive chef Carlos Arriaga grills Piri-Piri-style organic chicken and serves it with fries and a salad, or roasts veal breast with broccoli rabe and baby potatoes to create Portugese-style entrees.
