Joe's made me feel like a "tourist" in my own country. They have unimaginable kinds of food such as ostrich and crocodile. My foreign colleagues enjoyed the crocodile but I enjoyed the ostrich (at least it sounded more like chicken to me so I thought I would rather try something normally eatable!). I especially enjoyed the atmosphere and the creativity... More

Very fun (and touristy) place with so much to look at. The food was really great--I had zebra, kudu, crocodile and ostrich! Will definitely return. The only reason I didn't give a 5 was because the servicer wasn't very friendly or helpful.

It's a place that everyone talks about and for good reason. The atmosphere is brilliant, especially at night. The food is usually excellent, but be prepared to wait. That applies to drinks too. Get your waitron to bring a bottle of wine, or an ice bucket of beers and the wait for the food won't be so onerous. There's no... More

We just had drinks but the menu looked fun. Lots of game choices. They messed up the drink order and brought 3 girls 13 and under drinks with run. Second set ordered specifically "virgin" came back with alcohol again. Maybe just not tuned into kids. But the decor is fantastic. would definitely go back and eat there next time. Check... More

We stopped by one evening. We had heard people mention it. We thought it was a little beer place. Boy, were we surprised! It is a very large restaurant with a few bars. The areas are divided so you can dine inside or out and in different venues. I had a selection of meats common in Namibia and wanted to... More

It's a huge place, yet reservation is required. You can get all sorts of meat/game dishes there, good value for money. In the winter huge bone fires are lit in the center of the semi-oepn structures. Wonder why this place features as an attraction rather than a restaurant.

We tried this restaurant the first time looking for a quick beer on the way home - from the outside it does not look great but totally redeems itself on the inside. Great (predominantly outdoor) dining experience - which in Windhoek is nearly always good. As befitting the name, the beer selection is excellent, but the menu really surprised us... More

Windhoek does not offer many allround dining experiences. this one is outstanding in all areas. Great food and good professional staff. we'll be back.
