You know a place is good when it’s not the cheapest yet still retains a loyal local clientele alongside the savvy tourists. This South Shore favorite now occupies a clifftop traditional Bajan building with panoramic views over Accra Beach and the sea crashing against the rocks below. Past the colorful gallery of paintings by local artists is an air-conditioned indoor dining room for sultry lunchtimes (when prices are half those at dinner), but for evening meals be sure to snag a seat on the gazebo or long open terrace after they roll back the sailcloth awnings and you can dine in the trade wind breeze under the stars. You can’t go wrong with fresh seafood, including the recommended cajun blackened dolphin (mahi mahi) and parmesan-crusted barracuda with mashed potatoes; landlubbers will enjoy the herb-crusted rack of lamb.
