We are living in Accra en whenever we invite people for an important occasion we tend to invite them at the Movenpick. On previous occasions we were very happy with the service and the food. Not so yesterday. We went for dinner with very good friends/collegues and the service was really bad. One of the girls came to often to... More

Came with friends to celebrate colleagues birthday. Service was very good. Staff are very much engaged and happy with their guests. Buffet very average. Shame they have a area for live cooking which is not being used. Over all though a nice time

I dined here with a friend for lunch. There were several conferences and even though the restaurant and grounds were full, we were still able to have an intimate lunch without filling crowded or having to speak loud to be heard. Granted that this hotel hosts many events, it's a great thing that they've nailed it with the layout and... More

I have had some of the best lunches at the Sankofa Restaurant, especially their Sunday buffet lunch is one of the best in Accra. They cater not only for the western palate, but for the local too. On offer is traditional sunday roast, bbq, pasta dishes, japanese sushi, great deserts and local foods like fufu and jolof.

We ate here whilst staying at the Movenpick - there was a huge choice on the buffet option for starters - mains & desserts - each night there is a theme to the buffet offering variety to those staying a few days - service for drinks was sometimes a little slow but you could not fault the happy attentive service...

We went to Movenpick for Mother's Day dinner when my husband and I were in Ghana a few weeks ago. I was disappointed with the lack of service we received.

The restaurant is nice, staff is really nice and the overall quality is good.But I advise to stick to international cuisine because some may not like African food style its a matter of taste. It has a very nice terrace outside especially at night.
