In the area of Osu, very close to Danquah Circle, you can have a very nice meal at Venus Restaurant. The place is based in street that goes from Cantonments Road to the American Embassy and the Salvation Army Guesthouse.
At Venus Restaurant you enter a very nicely decorated place with a roof and chairs made of bamboo and tables made of tree brenches. The lights at night are colourful and the music is pleasant.
On the menu you find a lot of international dishes like a wrap with shoarma (veeery nice!), pizza's, but also indian food and french fries. Another specialty are the cocktails you can order here.
The prices are about average for Ghanaian standards: about 50.000 cedis ($ 5,-) for a normal maindish.
Trip to Accra
Kotoko International Airport became the entrance point to me for African traveling.My cheap flights to Accra gave me the most relaxed voyage I have ever had in my life. The airport is located in Accra, Ghana. I just took a taxi and moved towards my hotel, which I had already booked for me via internet. Hotel services were awesome and the environment was excellent. After one night I started to get around the city. I visited National Museum, Kwame Nkrumah memorial Park, Idependince Square and the National Archives of Ghana but unfortunately I forgot to visit W.E.B BuBois Memorial Center. Believe me Labadi Beach was the place where I enjoyed the most. After spending 4 days in Ghana I flied to Harare, Zimbabwe.
Rasta_Rob's Accra Page
I was about to build my VT Ghana page, but then realized I never saw anything but the capital city, hence an Accra-only page.
I visited Accra briefly on business in January 1999, after spending a couple days in Conakry, Guinea. The trip also included short visits to Abidjan and Lome. As the only Anglophone country on our trip, Ghana was quiet different from its Francophone neighbors. I found Ghanaians to be very friendly, warm people. Accra is a surprisingly attractive city, with modern buildings, wide streets, and lots of grass, flowers, and trees along the roads.
I stayed at the Labadi Beach Hotel, which was VERY nice! I didn't manage to get out of the city during my short visit, but I understand there is a rainforest canopy walk (similar to ones found in Costa Rica and elsewhere) somewhere west of Accra near the coast. Perhaps I'll get there on my next trip!
