Gathemann is still one of the best dinner places in Windhoek, however, our recent experience is not what the restaurant used to be. Service was very slow (waited 1.5 hours for our starters) and the food in general was average; e.g. three steaks ordered, any none of them was cooked as ordered (medium rather than med-rare, rare rather than medium...

What was special about Gathemann's was the menu, which really made use of the products Namibia has to offer, such as sea food from Walvis Bay and veggies from other parts of Namibia, also the delicious game meat such as Oryx, that Namibia has aplenty. The restaurant has a refined atmosphere in the most lovely old colonial building. Service was... More

From entering the restaurant I was impressed. A lovely German waitress welcomed me at the door and allow me to choose a table. As it was a lovely day I choose a table outside. Once my guests arrived we were served quickly. The food was tasty and well prepared, portions generous. No complaints at all and definitely will recommend the... More

We have enjoyed dinners/meals at Gatheman for many years, whenever we have visited Windhoek, and have also recommended it to friends from overseas, but our recent dinner in March 2015 will most probably have been our last one there. Service is friendly, but very slow and not very professional. The menu has become very expensive. A portion of linefish, which... More

Excellent selection of food to choose from, large portions and everything was fresh. I loved to view from the balcony and the restaurant was nicely decorated. I would certainly make it a point to go back

Gathemans has a lovely quiet feel to it despite overlooking the busiest street in Windhoek. A beautiful balcony and a relaxed atmosphere with the street buzzing below. The food is excellent, I have never had a bad meal here. Great for business lunches and dinners. Staff are attentive and efficient. Keep going back.

The balcony is a haven above the streets of Windhoek. The food was fresh and well-prepared and the wine was cold. Our server even called a cab for us when we were done. This was the nicest meal we had during our weekend in Windhoek.

We are never disappointed by the excellent food in this restaurant. The chef uses the best local produce (beef, game, truffels and omajova mushrooms when in season etc) in his well designed dishes. The charming balcony overlooks a park and is a wonderful setting for a romantic dinner. I love this place and the owner/chef.
