The Venue gets the atmosphere and the food just right! The pizza is great as is the fish and beef. This is one of the best places to eat in Accra. Note that it is open evenings only on weekdays

This is a review for both the restaurant as well as the bed and breakfast/ hotel. Over the last three years I've spent more nights in Ghana than in my hometown of New York. I travel constantly and am never in the same city for more than five nights which is simultaneously fun and terribly exhausting. I spent the first... More

Given how highly this restaurant was rated i expected a little more. My girlfriends fillet was undercooked and when we asked for our order of medium it was simply returned to the pan (not freshly prepared) and then dumped on the plate without any resting which consequently meant a mixture of mushroom sauce and blood. The staff are friendly, but... More

Had a late Valentine's diner at the venue. And again is was a perfect evening out in a nice and cosy atmosphere. The starter was yummy and the Tilapia could have fed two persons. But I am a new addict to the "Dutch Apple Tart"... Thanks to the owner for his wine recommendation - got one who was not on... More

It was just a normal Sunday night at any restaurant I guess. The staff were nice, the food was nice but overall it wasn't anything special. Most of the staff seemed to be busy with getting home as quickly a possible.

A little off the beaten path, but like anything else in Accra nothing is too far. We went on a Tuesday so somewhat of a quiet night. The food was good and the menu is fairly large and decently priced. Very nice atmosphere. Very Clean and cool and inviting,

I've been hearing about The Venue since I moved to Accra 3 years ago, but given that I live in Cantonments, didn't feel like fighting traffic to go for dinner. I finally made it. The decor is above-average for the city and is well maintained. The menu is broad and the prices offer great value. I had the escargots and... More

My friends and I have been studying in Ghana for the past semester and over these 4.5 months we have come to The Venue on almost a weekly basis. As a long-term vegetarian I can most certainly say that the Vegetarian pizza at The Venue is the best I've EVER had. Just be prepared to take some home because it... More

We were a party of 8 celebrating at what we expected to be one of Accra's better restaurants. Not so this time. Several of us did not finish our main courses. Much room for improvement in the kitchen, or the supervision of it, we felt.

Wow, nice atmosphere, full of expats. The appetizers were delicious including hummus, roasted zucchini, and feta cheese. After the great appetizers the pizza was a surprising dissapointment. The sauce somehow was either too little and not flavorful enough or too much, as it might have been better with just cheese and something else. I don't think the pizza was poor... More
