“Food is Consistent. Service is Not.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

My husband and I decided to stop in at Woodford Cafe in Price Plaza to order take out on our way down from the airport a Sunday afternoon. We placed our order and had a couple drinks while we waited. The wait was so long, we could have almost left the establishment drunk. I could not understand how the preparation of a meal could take so long, since the restaurant was not busy that afternoon and most of the patrons there seemed to be having drinks. After close to an hour and checking in with the waitress who took our order duriing that time, I proceeded to speak with someone who looked like an authority figure. Our meals eventually came out a short while after that; total wait time was just over an hour. When we got home and had our meals, the food was quite good. But was it worth the wait? Maybe not.

On another occasion about one month after, I had lunch there with a girlfriend. The wait time this time around was reasonable. We ordered an appetizer and our meals at the same time. The appetizer came out shortly after ordering and just as we were finished having our appetizer, our main course came out. The meals were both filling and tasty. One appetizer was enough for both of us to share.

Tasty food. Good value for money. Nice ambiance. How about consistent service delivery going forward?

“2 Thumbs Up for Happy Hour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

Visited early Feb 2014. For drinks and appetizers and to celebrate one of our party's Birthday. The drinks were excellent and were 2 for one. They even catered for the kiddies who got the drinks sans Alcohol.

The Wings were delish but the best appetizer over all had to be the Saltfish Accra w. tamarind sauce. Please try it!!!

To top it off the service was great and complementary cake and ice-cream followed, for the birthday person.

“Be vigilant”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

Myself and three colleagues visited this restaurant one Sunday afternoon a place we have been to before, on this occasion they were out of our favorite seafood 'salmon' no problem we ordered grill talipia and another item. The delivery of the meal was tardy, the grill fish was not grilled as ordered and to compound the horrid experience we were billed for the item they we out off. This was rectified but on further tallying of the bill we realized that the 15% government tax was actually billed at 16% this was explained off as 'that is how the system is'......No way, eventually this was corrected. My advice to all be very careful, from now on I am going to be double checking all my bills at all restaurants. Will not be returning just imagine how many other patrons were robbed and will continued to be robbed...This matter will be reported to the relevant authorities.
