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

Both quality, variety and prices are all in a good balance. personnel may need to improve its skills, just a smile isn't enough always.

I had the buffet for both breafast & dinner on several different days. The food was always fresh and tasty. Watch out for some of the peppers though!

Since the Mövenpick hotel opened, nothing much has changed in this restaurant. Decor is stunning, especially for Africa, but food depending on the days is between mediocre and eatable. The wine list has certainly been made by somebody who does not know much about wines! Breakfast is certainly the best of the available meals, even if both the croissants and... More

went out for a buffet here on my visit to Accra and wasn't impressed with the options available. The food on offer is quite limited compared to other hotel buffets in other parts of the world. For example - had about three or four sushi options and had only four pieces per option. No sashimi on offer. Dessert was just... More
