I know that restaurants for tourists are usually "one-meal" places. I've tried it anyway and it was nothing special. The fish in the red-red was 100% the fishbone, no flesh on it and as for the rest, well I've had it better elsewhere.

This is a good place for Ghanaian food. They have a long menu and we ordered some tasty dishes with the help of the waiter. The service, though, was a weird combination of slow and eager that we leave so that they could go home early on a Friday night.

A group of us went out for dinner at this pleasant place. Dining is on the upstairs terrace. We had the red fish stew which was snapper cutlets deep fried then cooked in a thick, spicy tomato based sauce. Very tasty. We had it with plantains. Others tried the fried tilapia, which was a large whole fish. Also good. One... More

Food was ok, menu was quite extensive...the service was unenthusiastic at best, not too much effort on behalf of the serving staff. Might return but not excitedly.

We enjoyed our visits to Buka restaurant. Very good food, reasonable prices, big portions. service rather quick compared to other restaurants in Accra. the grilled red fish and guinea fowl are really nicely grilled and very tasty. Very nice setting. The open terrace is lovely. Though not very easy to find the place at first as most people in Osu... More

The palm wine is a hallmark, not to mention the great beans and fried fish dishes. A place where the elite crowd in Accra congregate.

I usually enjoy my Buka visits. The food is tasty and I'm generally happy. Well today I had a complaint about my food and got the WORST TREATMENT EVER! I was sitting for almost 15 minutes waiting for a manager to attend to my issue. Instead he sent the waiter to tell me that "you should have noticed the problem... More

Well established local eatery in the back streets of Osu. A limited menu with the trade off that our food came in decent time (very quick for Ghanain food in comparison to other places). My party variously enjoyed Tilapia, Guinea Fowl and Goat Light Soup. Our waiter was really good, attentive, proactive and informative. Nice setting too, with a wooden... More
