We arrived unexpected on a Monday evening at the pousada Acajutibiró. The restaurant Bon Appétit nas not open, but we were offered a delicious and simple meal: fresh greens and raw vegetables salad with a perfect seasoning, and a tapioca with shrimps on a coconut sauce. Fresh fruit juices followed by a maracujá (passion fruit) mousse and caramelized apple tarte completed this pleasant sensorial experience. We stayed one more day, which resulted in another culinary highlight: a seafood risotto so fresh, tasty and well prepared many italian chefs could learn from it. The owners-cooks excell in combining french, creole and brazilian tastes and textures with such creativity (not obvious at all in this secluded area of Brazil), were they located in more well known and accessible areas, they would be good candidates for a Michelin star!
Small but revealing details: Beautiful and tasteful local cotton tablecloth, Laguiole cuttlery (uh-la-lah), fresh flowers decorating table and dishes, rustic wooden tables and benches in a rustic room next to the kitchen with a wonderful view on sand and fresh smell of sea... veeeery romantic!! And a perfectly kind and feel-good service.
It's a shame it's so far away... We would love to come back again and again...
