1. Buka Restaurant

Located in Osu, in the east of the central Business district, Buka is the definition of affordable. Even though most people might say affordability is relative to each buyer’s cash, I still stand by earlier submission. Their services are very good and it has this feel at home kind of setting with lawns and recycled artifacts too. I tried their peppered snails and it’s superb. They have local and other continental dishes especially if you’re not from Ghana and scared to try our foods .

2. Republic Bar and Grill in Osu

It’s an open space where you meet different people from different background. It’s a very good place for socializing as well if you’re like me. I love their fried yam and “yeye goat meat” (goat meat in curry sauce). They have got one of the best bissap drinks (sobolo) as well. You can consider Republic as a night hangout with friends who love to paint the town red.

3. Skybar 25

Skybar is on the rooftop of one of Ghana’s iconic building , the Villagio apartments precisely in the Alto Tower which is rightly opposite the African Regent hotel. The reason I love the place is actually because of the rooftop, it allows you see the whole city at a glance. But if you want to consider luxury then it’s a good place to be and don’t forget to make a reservation a week or more before you go. You don’t want to experience any embarrassment at the gate.

4. The Cupcake Boutique

One of my favorite place at any given moment is the Cupcake Boutique in Labone. I love their iced tea. Their customer service is very reliable. Consider it a hangout for the day with your girls.

5. Starbites

Finally, I love Starbites restaurant in East Legon. You should try their pork and jollof. They have a lovely outdoor setting by the street and it’s a cool place for a relaxed business meeting if you asked me.
