I normally only get rinks here for the outside ambiance and the view. I've never ordered and food that lived up to it's price tag, but it's still a cozy downtown spot.

The drinks were nice and it was interesting to be up above the city looking out. Its probably the best view you could have of the city, but I wouldn't set your expectations too high. We were a pair of women just having beers and we felt like we got lots of stares and a bit too much attention. We... More

Crest restaurant and its footop bar Giddipass has been the centre of Tamale nightlife for years - although now to be eclisped by the better Chuck's Bar. The rooftop is too hot in daytime (no shade) but great for views over Tamale at night or dusk. The Crest restaurant serves passable Afro-chinese dishes very, very slowly (check what is acutally...

I tried to go here for lunch and deeply regretted it. The service was terrible and slow and I had to ask the waiter several times to put down the phone so I could talk to him. They seemed to be out of everything on the menu, and we had to change our order 3 times. They also had no... More

Food is not worth it. Supposedly they have ice cream downstairs but it is hardly ever working. The only meal I've eaten there was below average. Staff are not very nice. Big party mood in the evening/night. But they will let you climb up on the rooftop during the day if you buy a drink and you have a good... More

We went there 2 different nights, and both nights left disappointed. The first we had good drinks, and ordered food. After waiting 45 minutes for the food to arrive, we asked where it was, and the waitress informed us the restaurant was out of gas and we could only get chicken gizzard kabobs (which were awful!). The second night we... More

We came here on a night out and the ghanians are very friendly sitting us down with them as it was very busy and no chairs free. The men are abit over friendly but you just have to play along and be firm with them. Everyone there gets up and dances,has a few drinks,the bar is downstairs and the dance... More
