Ok, so expectations were quite low, it was a Monday night and we were the only people in the restaurant and I began to worry the seafood couldn't possibly be fresh. We ordered various lobster and prawn dishes and they were all incredible. Seafood so fresh I assume they have tanks out the back keeping it all live. I had... More

You have to love a seafood restaurant with it's own boat standing outside. I loved the atmosphere - all the food as very very good - they have chili type of special sauce they make - the best I have ever tasted and I am a chili LOVER. Bit on the expensive side, but s is everything in Accra.

Many people say that this is the best restaurant in Accra and I agree. The service was fast and very well. The food was great The atmosphere is wonderful too. And there are high levels of security before you enter the restaurant, which means its safe. I would go there again
