Best restaurant in Windhoek

My favorite restaurant in Windhoek. Food is very great, atmosphere excellent and the cost reasonable. In winter, sit by the Boma to keep warm.

Why this is just one of those places that you cannot miss when passing through Windhoek (possibly even Namibia as a whole). One of the strangest and simultaneously quirkiest restaurants I have ever been to. The beer selection was obviously delicious, staff were friendly and the food was awesome as well.

the décor is great, the food was nice and the beer was cold! It's a bit cold at night so make sure to bring a jacket.

A must for everyone passing through Windhoek to visit once. Very unusual with lots of different rooms, all furnished with recycled objects, each room is themed. Busy and buzzy, but not too loud to talk. We arrived at 6.00pm on a Friday and had no problem getting a table for four. Food and drink very reasonably priced, good service. Very... More

Joe's beerhouse is a popular stop for both locals and tourists. It has a great atmosphere and should be on every visitor's itinerary when visiting Namibia.

This is a absolute must do in Windhoek, but try and book for dinner. The lunch menu is limited with very poor service, but at night the place becomes alive and it is really magical.

The setting of the place is what will strike you first of all. As you settle at your table and start ordering you will be pleased to notice that maintaining a normal voice tone is possible as the place is not loud in spite of the presence of many and a packed full place. The food and drinks are all... More

We loved Joe's. Fun atmosphere, friendly service. Great game (springbok kebobs and malva pudding were fantastic!) and great dessert. A must visit if staying in Windhoek.

This is one address where any local or traveller will be able to meet up with you. Unquestionably Namibian, with mouthwatering BBQ meat dishes, wonderfully rustic and out-doors type setting, and plenty of locally brewed beer. As god as it gets in a city, with the feeling of being out of the city. One of those "Do-not-miss" places. Not really... More
