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

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

The food was good and the staff were good. It is the ambience which really makes the place. Large and popular and the food was very varied and good. Well worth a visit if in the area

Eisbein and beer in an eclectic atmosphere. Happy smiling service and a great German food in the heart of Africa.
