    Patagonia

    Beef lovers will feel at home in this elegant steakhouse and seafood grill on the ground floor of West Africa’s tallest building. Imported from South Africa without ever being frozen, the prime cuts are dry and wet aged in house to develop an intense flavour before they are prepared to plate. Fresh seafood in such refined ways as lobster tortellini round of a menu well worth the money.

    Auntie Muni Waakye

    Waakye (a mix of beans and rice served with spaghetti, meat or fish stew, boiled eggs and lots of hot shito pepper sauce) is Ghana’s most popular street food, and Auntie Muni is Ghana’s most famous seller. Former presidents, football stars and expats are seen patiently queuing up with the city's other residents every Saturday and Sunday to get a taste of her feel-good food.

    Burger & Relish

    Gourmet burgers have come to Accra in this hip, industrial restaurant, which doubles as a trendy cocktail bar in the evenings, and a family-friendly brunch spot at the weekend. If you can fit anything else in after one of the delicious burgers, there are brownies and ice-cream sundaes. Regular live-music nights here and at sister branch in East Legon.

    Khana Khazana

    Tucked behind a petrol station (Engen Filling Station, next to Avenida Hotel), this outdoor Indian restaurant is a gem – cheap, delicious and with long opening hours. One of the house specialities is the dosa (savoury parcel made of rice flour normally eaten for breakfast). Sunday is thali (set meal) day.

    Buka

    Ever-popular Buka serves some of the best West African food in Accra, in stylish surroundings to boot. Hearty plates of jollof rice, tilapia and groundnut soup are served on a pretty terrace, which fills up with the local office crowd every lunchtime.

    La Chaumière

    There's stiff competition these days, but La Chaumière remains one of Accra's best and fanciest restaurants. It excels in old-school elegance, with soft lighting, polished wooden floors, classical music and delicious French fusion gastronomy. La Chaumière is renowned for its steaks but there is plenty of seafood on the menu too, as well as the odd North African flavour. Bookings essential.

    Asanka Local

    This canteen style restaurant in the heart of Osu offers a vast selection of Ghanaian dishes: local fish, namely tilapia; and soups such as groundnut and 'light soup' (tomato and goat meat) served with fufu (dough made from cooked and pounded cassava or plantain) or banku (fermented corn and cassava dough). Most guests in the vast dining hall are locals, which adds to the authentic Ghanaian lunch or dinner experience. Note, your right hand replaces cutlery here.

    Lord of the Wings

    This restaurant is part of a worldwide chain specialising in chicken wings and many other fast food favourites such as burgers and nachos. This branch, one of two in Acca, boasts a bright hall in American diner style. It couldn’t be much more suitably situated than close to the US Embassy in Cantonments, but this does mean it's consequently busy despite its rather expensive prices.

    XO Sushi Restaurant & Bar

    There are plenty of Asian eateries in Accra, but this chic restaurant in the booming airport area is unique in that it offers such a variety of Pan Asian dishes. Japanese, Thai and Philippine dishes are just some of those up for order, as are plenty of options for vegetarians and vegans.

    Venus Lounge, Bar & Grill

    Tasty plates of shawarma, hummus and other authentic Lebanese dishes are served up at this all-in-one-venue in the heart of Osu. During the day, Venus doubles as a home office for freelancers squinting into their laptops, but at night it comes alive as cocktails are poured and dance music is turned up, hopefully not disturbing those who are slumbering in the affordable Byblos Hotel above.

    Moka’s Resto Cafe

    This new restaurant and café in booming Labone offers good options from breakfast until a late dinner. Choose between croissants and muffins, Italian-style pizza and pasta, burgers and freshly pressed juice from the outside fruit bar. There are two outdoor spaces and an air-conditioned interior. The only niggle is the cost, particularly after adding VAT to the menu prices.

    Zen Garden

    The kitchen offers pizza, pasta and platters of Lebanese fare in this enclosed garden. There is a little wooden indoor pavilion for the hot afternoon hours, but the outdoor space is the prime pull, especially at night when its warmly lit. Sitting beneath the majestic trees and sipping one of their smoothies (or cocktails) is a great way to pass the time.

    Chez Clarisse Mama Africa

    You have two choices: tender chicken or whole grilled tilapia topped with onions and tomatoes. The small menu doesn’t make this Ivorian favourite any less popular though; this real African food experience includes plastic chairs, eating with your hands and sauces that keep fans coming back. Cutlery available upon request for the less adventurous.

    Coco Lounge

    Feather covered lamps hanging from its high ceiling and artworks by local sculptors make sure this brasserie oozes with a little glamour. However, reasonable prices for smaller bites and a casual dress code during the day (at night shorts are banned) ensure it's a chilled place for a good breakfast and lunch place. The cocktail menu is impressive.

    Bistro 22

    Ghana's tourism authority named this spacious, high-end venue the country's Restaurant of the Year in 2016. Bistro 22 is a good choice at any time of the day: sandwiches for lunch, a coffee on a couch in the garden or lobster pasta paired with one of the many wines on offer for dinner. Prices aren't cheap, but they're fair for the quality.

    Café Kwae

    Despite Accra’s large population, you won’t find many real cafes here. That’s changing with the recent opening of this cafe inside the extravagant facade of One Airport Sq. Treat yourself with homemade pies, light lunches, a wide variety of teas, freshly ground coffee or cold-pressed juice as you make use of the free wi-fi.

    Zion Thai

    With a narrow ground floor terrace along the street, this restaurant is best visited in the evening. Watch life go by and feel the chilli in your nose even before your pad thai or curry arrive on your candlelit table. The Nigerian owner and his Thai wife personally make sure that the food is fresh, spicy and authentic.

    Café Mondo

    The popular Café Mondo is one of the few spots in town to get croissants, pain au chocolat and other pastries that wouldn't look out of place in a French bakery. You can also design your own sandwich, making this a perfect stop for breakfast, lunch or a wi-fi break.

    Tea Baa

    This lively little joint specialises in iced tea (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic) served in hipster-friendly glass jars. There's also a small menu of smoothies and meals (curry and all-day breakfast, for example), and there are DJ nights at the weekend.
