Restaurants in Accra offer all kinds of gastronomical options: from local flavours to international cuisine, you can find all types of culinary offerings. But even though the traditional Ghanaian diet heavily relies on meats, you can also find a great variety of vegetarian restaurants in Accra. Here’s a rundown of the best vegetarian restaurants in Accra.
Best vegetarian restaurants in Accra
PAT Vegetarian Health Food and Products
If you used to think that Ghana could not offer true vegetarian food, this place will prove you completely wrong. We could describe it as the traditional Ghanaian “chop bar” but in a vegetarian style. They also have a variety of fruit juices available.
Fufu is served with light (tomato) soup or Palm and Peanut soup, also called Nkatebe. Boiled yam or plantain goes with evergreen nkontomre (cocoyam leaves sauce). Brown rice with fried kakro (ripe plantain/corn doughnuts) and fresh vegetables is another example of dishes available.
Compared to other vegetarian restaurants, this is very affordable (with big portions), a fast and friendly service. Please do keep in mind that it can get crowded. Great choice to support a local vegetarian business!

Gaia organics Cafe and retail
From the grouper wrap with chimichurri sauce to the thai chicken bowl, the jasmine tea to the lemon cake and blueberry pancakes everything just tastes healthy and fresh. The service is warm and friendly.
It’s a pleasant serene environment with lots of plants, positive phrases hanging on the walls, and soothing music (making it a great cafe to work from).
Their mission is to be the most sustainable cafe in Accra by sourcing their organic ingredients locally and supporting small farmers. They also say that they exist to give their customers a place to feel comfortable and special. We think that is a check for both objectives, or at least the latter one is definitely achieved.
Another interesting thing about their menu is that it is calculated in terms of macros (macronutrient). They’re the three categories of nutrients you eat the most and provide you with most of your energy: proteins, carbohydrates and fats.

Tatale Vegan Restaurant
Despite being located in the heart of Accra, Osu, it is not such a well known place. Shame because it is definitely worth a try! As the name already suggests, this is a vegan restaurant, serving 100% plant based food with a twist of traditional west African interpretations.
The owner has opened the same branch in London, UK which has been very successful. He wanted to try luck in his country of origin, Ghana, which is unfortunately not being as successful.
The heavy meat based Ghanaian diet, has many Ghanaians a little “scared” of vegan 😀
We believe it is more than just a restaurant. It is also an educational space to educate its locals more about the benefits of veganism and that you do not always need to eat a plate of meat or fish to be full up.
You can either dine in, in their cosy space, or order for delivery. Staff are very friendly and attentive, always ready to explain more in depth all the dish options.
Location: 18th Ln, Accra, Ghana
- Opening days/hours: Mon 11:30am-9:30pm, Tues-Fri and Sun 11am-9:30pm, Sat 4:30pm-9:30pm
