About Us

Restaurant Akwaba, which means Welcome, is located in the Rosemont-Petite-Patrie district of Montreal.

Akwaba proposes a culinary journey combining African and Greek treats with a modern and original touch within a pleasant, warm and welcoming atmosphere.

At Akwaba, we offer traditional African dishes such as Kédjénou (stewed chicken), variants of choukouya (beef, lamb, goat or chicken breast braised with a mix of African and Greek spices (kankankan) onions and peppers), Yassa (chicken or lamb cooked in an onion-lemon-mustard sauce), Mafé, Tiep bou dienn or yap, braised marinated fish, the unforgettable Alloko (fried plantains), attiéké (cassava couscous) and much more …, traditional Greek dishes such as Moussaka, etc. and dishes resulting from the fusion of the two such as African Souvlaki etc …

Indeed, the chef and owner is very knowledgeable in African and Greek cuisine. He was previously a restaurant owner and chef in Greece. He has worked closely with many great African and Greek chefs and has an excellent command of both cuisines.

The Akwaba concept aims, on the one hand, to increase awareness by promoting the true flavors of authentic African cuisine in all its dimensions and on the other hand, to introduce ingredients of African cuisine in a few Greek recipes: thus, the potato is replaced by the yam (sweet potato) in the Greek Moussaka, tuna is substituted by salmon in the Bassamoise Salad etc. The addition of cress to the ingredients of this salad brings out a special taste that is very appreciated (it is the Queen of our salads). Furthermore, all our salads are seasoned with home-made vinaigrettes made with extra virgin olive oil from Kalamata (Greece).

Dessert includes, among other things, Pineapple Chutney Crêpes cake with Pinacolada sauce, the comforting Akwaba pie served with lime sorbet, dêghê, Baklava (Greek) etc.

At Akwaba, the freshness of the food is essential. Come with your friends or family, many pleasant surprises are waiting for you.
