The restaurant is beautiful and has a nice position overlooking the park. The choices on the menu was limited and the price was to say the least shocking. Never in my life did we see something like that and we are well travelled. The cold drinks were served in glasses, without the cans and were flat. So we were not... More

I ate at Gathemann three times in 2014. The first time was in July during the Namibian winter. We ate inside. It was lovely. The two people who joined me that time found it lovely too. The second and third times were in December just before Christmas. I ate on the upstairs balcony both times. The setting and food were... More

This was a most special meal of our three week trip to Botswana and Namibia. The restaurant was lovely, the food amazing and the service was wonderful. The chef sent out a complimentary appetizer. The rooms were beautiful and the feel very European with African touches. We were there a little late, but never felt rushed. I would a meal... More

This is much more than a meal. It is a culinary experience that will rate at the top of your best restaurant list. We are a family with two older children. We all had 4 courses. Each of us had different menu items. Everything was spectacular! The chef is a culinary genius! We found Gathemann's to have top quality meats... More

We booked at the Gatheman for supper. Though they didn't cater for children (we have 1.5 and 4.5yr olds) - they went out of their way to accommodate them. Even bringing them watermelon and small titbits! Thank you for making our meal so enjoyable!!! Lovely venue

Almost by chance we found our way to the Gathemann Restaurant in Windhoek. Tucked away above the Shops on Independence Avenue, we had a lovely dinner there. We were fortunate enough to be able to have a little Chat with the Chef of the kitchen and told him that we would be really happy if he could serve us whatever... More

yes, it is pricey for Namibiam standards but coming from Europe it is well worth it. We had shrimp salad and oysters as starters followed by kudu fillet as main. Presentation, taste and service were excellent. And the extensive wine list is also a pro! We would highly recommend this place. And as an extra bonus, it is in 5... More

We went to this restaurant our 1st night in Namibia and were not disappointed. It is located on the second story and we ate outside with a quiet breeze. We ordered traditional Namibian food and it was fantastic. The chief came out personally and talked to us and encouraged us to try a dessert made from a local fruit (Monkey... More

We had two meals here, a lunch and a dinner and both were excellent. Beautiful Namibian oysters, and the best steak we had during our time in Namibia. Nice cheese platter for dessert. Good service and a lovely spot to eat out on the verandah, overlooking Zoopark. Can thoroughly recommend this restaurant.
