Finding a place to chop, or should we say eat, is not difficult in Kumasi, but as with most large cities, making the final decision can be difficult. What should you eat? Should I try Ghanaian, Chinese, Italian, contemporary, or even local cuisine? Kumasi has an abundance of restaurants.

Momo's Pool Bar

The secluded gardens and the location make it ideal for a peaceful getaway. The bartenders are pleasant, and the food is reasonable. Our only concern is that if you stay at the Guess House, you should expect your evenings in the bar to be crowded with day guests who have come to use the bar and sometimes the pool.
The bar and pool are open daily from 10 a.m., with the pool closing at dusk unless there is a private event.
