Santoku restaurant

For those seeking something a little bit special, Accra is home to some exceptional restaurants for haute cuisine. Predictably, some of the best are French, but Asian and Italian flavours are also served up from the capital's finest kitchens. Prices range from reasonable to budget-busting - be prepared - but if you're after fresh, expertly-crafted dishes, attractive surroundings and the chance to mix with Accra's elite, these spots are where to eat. Some of these places are seriously popular, so make sure to book where possible.

Santoku Restaurant & Bar

Critics' choice

Santoku is the best restaurant in Ghana right now. There are other pretenders to the throne opening up soon, but the blend of incredible food, effortless service, and truly well-designed surroundings make this a cut above the rest

La Chaumiere

Critics' choice

La Chaumiere’s sophisticated French dishes have been delighting Accra’s discerning diners for more than a decade. There is a smattering of North African flavours for good measure – find dishes such as grouper with harissa and mint yoghurt – the mainstay is classic French cuisine, from a crispy Nicoise salad and a wonderfully thick and sticky onion soup au gratin.

Urban Grill

Critics' choice

At its heart, it is a high-end steak house. The meat is corn-fed and imported directly from Nebraska, and cooked over a charcoal grill to perfection. It’s the best steak in Ghana. As good as the steak is, the menu really gets interesting when he fuses his Nuevo Latino passions with local ingredients in dishes such as squid three ways, the amazing pork belly with kumquat glaze on crispy fried cassava or, his signature dish, the plantain-encrusted grouper.

Bistro 22

Critics' choice

This new venue is a great addition to the Labone eating scene. It is the kind of place that takes the marbling of its beef very carefully and therefore the kind of place we like.

Labone

Bread & Wine

Critics' choice

Great French food, a wine cellar, a beautiful location, real croissants made by a French pastry chef – what’s not to like? This is a serious set-up. =

Osu

Soho

Firstly, let’s get the sushi out of the way. It’s good. Really good. The sushi chef knows what he’s doing – that much is clear. However, it’s across the rest of the Asian fusion menu where the creativity begins to shine. The crispy salmon takes the often indistinct texture of ceviche and cleverly added a tempura-style crunch packed with flavor.

Buka

Critics' choice

Conveniently situated close to the centre of Osu, Buka is, without question, one of the best lunch spots in the city. =The food itself hinges largely on Ghanaian and Nigerian specialties – dishes include okra stew and eba (a dough ball eaten with stews). Service can slow down during busy lunches.

Heritage Indian Restaurant

The Ghanaians are fans of Indian food, and Heritage often gets pointed to as one of the best curry houses in the capital. The atmosphere inside is elegant and quiet, with some fabulously detailed Indian carvings on display. The food is equally pleasing, authentic and spicy. Service is attentive, but relaxed.

Yasmina Lebanese Cuisine

Critics' choice

This superb restaurant, on the same complex as Marina Mall, is rightly recognised for the quality of its Lebanese food. There’s incredibly flavourful cuisine on offer here.

I think trip advisor is more informative. Your top restaurants list does not mention top restaurants. It's more like those that have advertised with you get to be the top restaurant. The top Indian cuisine restaurant is the Tandoor Indian Restaurant in north labone. A little bit of research would have taken you there. It's the oldest Indian restaurant in Ghana. Please do a bit more research when giving information to people out there.

The photo is of a Japanese restaurant. I think that I will avoid that and stick with the bar and grill and Indian restaurant.
