Unique Menu

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

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

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.

I need to confess right upfront, I'm not a vegetarian, but from time to time, especially in the heat, meat loses its appeal. Well, what a delight - here was a vegetarian platter that was beautifully constructed and each part as delightful as the next…Fresh asparagus presented in a champagne flute with a cheesy dip, a small vegetable quiche, roasted...

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
