I love to visit the Venue ,the food is really good and there is a large selection on the menu. I always start with there pizza baked bread with a variety of sauce to spread on, and the home made spicy olive oil. The atmosphere is great, and the owners Tony and Linda makes sure you feel welcome and comfortable.... More

Stayed in The Venue for 3 nights, full board, during a business-trip. The Venue has an overall very friendly atmosphere and staff. Meals are without exception fine too: nice beef as well as fish-dishes, made with the client in mind. Conveniently located just off the centre of Accra, not far from Accra Mall and the Airport. To be recommended!

Without minding the price, the grilled fish was tasty with the pepper sauce for the rice. They have a good arena suitable for a date and you can propose in there. The only negative thing is that it may be a little clumsy to locate, because there were no visible signs of the restaurant.

Love the atmosphere of this place. Just the right amount of privacy if you're on a date and the food is pretty good. My only thought is that menu hasn't changed much in the last 5 years... so we don't go all that often at the moment... but it's still a firm favorite and the prices are very reasonable.

By the time my date and I made it, they were out of the tilapia they are so known for, but my seafood platter was also really well seasoned, I kind of wish everything wasn't fried though? The service was great, everyone apologized for being out of tilapia and they were super attentive. This was a good example of things... More

Let me be clear. If you're looking for the newest, hippest, fanciest place in town, this is not it. But if you're tired of paying through the nose for mediocre (or inconsistent) food, glacial service and apathetic (or corporate) owners, you must come to The Venue. This is a family restaurant in the old and glorious tradition of family restaurants... More
