There are three branches of Maquis Tante Marie. There’s one in Accra Mall and another fast-food-style place in Marina Mall, although the original Labone branch is, by some distance, the most atmospheric. All the seating is open-sided and the tasteful bamboo furniture and bright yellow tablecloths give the place an exotic vibe. The menu is definitively African, with authentic dishes predominantly from Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire. These include tilapia and banku, nyama choma (grilled, spiced meat, usually mutton) and fish yassa (fish grilled in a tangy lemon marinade).
There is the second Maquis Tante Marie branch which lacks the vibe of the Labone outlet. Happily it serves the same food, although some of the prices are slightly more expensive. The menu is African, with authentic – and mostly delicious – dishes predominantly from Ghana, Nigeria and Côte d’Ivoire. Like its sister restaurant, it’s a good place to try different cuisines, and it’s the best bet in the mall.
