Excellent Typical Restaurant

You'll find the best typical dishes from the Northeast of Brazil! There are some tourists but I guess most of the dinners are locals very well dressed. The food is delicious but carefull with the "Caldo de Sururu". Affordable.

Get yourself on a journey of exploring new odd flavours and tastes and you would like to end up at a place like this. Interesting combinations where seafood is the base will challenge your senses.

It is hard to make an objective review of this restaurant without sounding too enthusiastic. In a few words, it is the best restaurant in Maceió and one of the best in Brazil. Just that.

I usually go on vacations on Maceió. I like this city, beaches and small "pousadas". Probably, I have already visited all goods rest/bars. Akuaba, nowadays, is one of the best ones. Its mix of Northeast and African cuisine is simple and efficient. How nobody thought it before? When you go, try "octopussy on the skewer", a tasty starter and "caipirinha... More

Great food. a Taste of afro-brazilian food made with lot's of Dende oil ( palm Oil) Acarajé is a must. We eat seated under a nice tree.
