About us

Welcome to Alfama Restaurant, where we invite you to experience the true flavors of Portugal in  Dublin. Founded by a passionate immigrant couple, Paulo and Edi, Alfama is more than just a restaurant; it's a celebration of the rich culinary heritage and warm hospitality that defines Portuguese culture.

Our Journey: Our story begins with a dream - a dream to bring the authentic taste of home to the vibrant streets of Dublin. As immigrants, we carried with us the cherished recipes and culinary traditions passed down through generations. Alfama is the culmination of our journey, a place where we share the love, warmth, and flavors that remind us of home.

Real Food, Real Passion: At Alfama, we believe in the power of real food made with love and passion. Every dish on our menu is a testament to our commitment to quality ingredients, traditional cooking methods, and an unwavering dedication to authenticity. From the sizzling aromas of grilled sardines to the comforting richness of our famous bacalhau, each bite is a journey to the heart of Portugal.

A Home Away from Home: Step into Alfama, and you'll find more than just a restaurant – you'll discover a welcoming space that feels like a home away from home. Our warm and inviting atmosphere, inspired by the charming streets of Lisbon's Alfama district, sets the stage for memorable moments with family and friends.

Our Philosophy: At the core of Alfama's philosophy is a belief in the power of good food to create connections and evoke cherished memories. We are dedicated to providing an experience that goes beyond the plate, where each meal tells a story and each guest becomes part of our extended family.

Community and Sustainability: We are committed to being more than just a restaurant; we are stewards of our community and the environment. We source our ingredients locally whenever possible, supporting local farmers and producers. Our commitment to sustainability is reflected in every aspect of our operation.

At Alfama Restaurant, every meal is a celebration, and every guest is a cherished part of our story.


Bom apetite!

Paulo Miguel and Edi Nunes
