It has a vast spread of food and multiple options. Especially Tuesday's Indian food is fantastic. in the morning breakfast, you will get a live egg counter and multiple options including local food of Yam and stew, which is good at time except it will be little oily.

Very limited option to eat. The label on the food was also a challenge. I suggest you stick to your own food type. Trying African food can sometimes not be as rewarding as I understood.

The Moroccan buffet was the best one that we had during the 3 nights we were at the hotel. The desserts were to die for, if you like baklava and Greek like food. I also tried the Ghana coconut cocktail which I will have again when I return to Accra.

The buffet was fairly good value for money, but most items on the a la carte menu were overpriced. Service was average and the ambience was fairly relaxed.

I did not find much options nearby Movenpick Hotel, so this ended up being a good option. The food is good and they offer local food, however it is a little overpriced.

I had heard so much of this restaurant so we decided to have dinner. They had a buffet with an Asian theme on the night we went. The service is rather slow and overall the buffet was just OK - nothing special in fact bordering on bland. Considering the amount, I would suggest their Ala Carte as probably the taste... More
