For a coffee in a real very COLD area, without WiFi connection!!! For a dinner, without any Wi-Fi. Dinner a la carte, we must go again and again brinking plates... The sweets of chocolate are terribly full of sugar, as a kind of marmalade... The pieces of chocolate full of fat, much more the any large limits... Clean toilets, a... More

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.

We had enquired before going there and we were told by the hotel staff that there will be good indian dishes (Eg biriyani / tikka / fish / prawns)... More

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

We arrived around 2100hrs on a Friday evening. There were about 5 tables with guests. Every time we wanted attention we had to call waiters over. For the menu, for drinks and when we had problems. Three of us had the buffet and the fourth ordered soup, followed by fillet steak. Soup arrived ok whilst we went to,the buffet. After... More

I am always amazed at how stunning the hotel is whenever I walk in and that makes it even more disappointing when there's a serious lapse in service. Prior to this experience I'd only eaten at the Movenpick one other time. The food wasn't memorable then but my friend and I were in the neighborhood and wanted some breakfast so... More

This restaurant is at the Movenpick in Accra. The breakfast buffet is excellent with plenty of choices to suit American, European and African/Middle East tastes. Dinner buffets are themed with plenty of choices. Service is adequate but nothing to rave about..it was a challenge getting coffee at breakfast.

Hosted a dinner for my friends at the Sankofa restaurant at Movenpick, Accra, during my visit to Ghana last week. We went for the dinner buffet. The spread was good and the services was great. The cocktails and drinks menu as equally impressive and the waiters were well informed. The best of course was the dessert spread. Overall a nice... More
