The buffet had a selection of options but the service leaves a lot to be desired. We had to wait a really long time to get the bill after we had finished eating

I would highly recommend Sankofa Restaurant in the Movenpick Hotel. The food is of excellent quality and the display is magnificent. I would especially recommend the African buffet served once per week (Friday when I was there).
