I would highly recommend Sankofa Restaurant in the Movenpick Hotel. The food is of excellent quality and the display is magnificent. I would especially recommend the African buffet served once per week (Friday when I was there).

The a la carte menu is limited. For one visit, it is perfectly fine. If you are eating here regularly because you are staying in the hotel, it is easy to get tired of the food quickly.

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
