A little difficult to rate. As a bar, i's very good and has a working restroom which is not to be taken for granted in Tamale. As a restaurant, the are in pretty bad shape, I'm told the owner left to Accra and that they kind of went downhill. Four out of five dishes I ordered (in 2 days) the... More

This is the restaurant connected to the Giddipass bar. First, the good: it has a rooftop deck that gives you the best possible view of the center of town. But trust me, it's not worth it. First, the service: it's terrible. You can easily wait 15 minutes for anyone to notice you. And then, good luck getting a menu. If... More

My wife and I went here in the afternoon to escape the heat and have a cold drink. Unfortunately there was no seating available on the roof top, so we had our drinks in a nice enough space out the back of the restaurant. I feel this place has great potential if they would put some nice seating on the... More

I normally only get rinks here for the outside ambiance and the view. I've never ordered and food that lived up to it's price tag, but it's still a cozy downtown spot.

The drinks were nice and it was interesting to be up above the city looking out. Its probably the best view you could have of the city, but I wouldn't set your expectations too high. We were a pair of women just having beers and we felt like we got lots of stares and a bit too much attention. We... More

Crest restaurant and its footop bar Giddipass has been the centre of Tamale nightlife for years - although now to be eclisped by the better Chuck's Bar. The rooftop is too hot in daytime (no shade) but great for views over Tamale at night or dusk. The Crest restaurant serves passable Afro-chinese dishes very, very slowly (check what is acutally...

I tried to go here for lunch and deeply regretted it. The service was terrible and slow and I had to ask the waiter several times to put down the phone so I could talk to him. They seemed to be out of everything on the menu, and we had to change our order 3 times. They also had no... More

Food is not worth it. Supposedly they have ice cream downstairs but it is hardly ever working. The only meal I've eaten there was below average. Staff are not very nice. Big party mood in the evening/night. But they will let you climb up on the rooftop during the day if you buy a drink and you have a good... More
