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 was there for breakfast around 8am on Saturday at the deli cafe and the waiter was really unprofessional. It was as if we were a bother to have come early for breakfast. Whiles he prepared de sandwiches, he was virtually chatting non chalantly with a colleague as if we didn't exist. That aside, we wanted to use de back... 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

It's my first night in Ghana and I wanted to try this restaurant - so glad I did! I was warmly welcomed by charming hostesses. The buffet looked nice, but I usually prefer to try the menu selections, and I wasn't disappointed. My waiter Samuel was very knowledgeable about the menu and steered me in the direction of the potato... More
