This restaurant has a long history at a different location in Windhoek. Now it sits on a busy crossing and allows interesting views over the heavy traffic. The food is "Italian Style" with many Namibian quotes - which does not necessary speak against it. The service is good, the TV is a nuisance, their baguettes and ice creams are the... More

Would definitely recommend Joe's Beerhouse to dine out. Their food are great and the design of interior building makes you feel like you are in the woods and African culture. Would visit them again. Have been there a few times.

Both dining occasions found a full house. This tells us something locals know - the food is very good. However, when there is a packed house, which is often, the servers are really scrambling to keep up and unable to really provide the attention for me to give the place 5 stars. The proprietors try to check in with diners... More

I love coming here with my family. I always enjoy the food I get. When going for Dinner or lunch, we go to enjoy ourselves and we do not go to judge everything around us. As long as the food and drink arrives and is lekker and we enjoy each others company, I am happy. I will go back again... More

Only real Italian option in Windhoek, thus more or less a must go. Very noisy atmosphere, very crowded (if it is fully booke you have to ask have off the guestst to stand up in order to make your way to the toilets), extremly poor service, expensive (big salad N$ 140 - normal is N$ 70-80) and the food was...

Stopped for a quick lunch and it looked nice and clean from the outside. Not such a friendly owner sitting behind the counter, but very friendly waiter serving us. The Greek salad was really fresh and yummy and our pizzas were nice. Not blown away, but just what we wanted. I thought I'd see some really good Italian dishes on... More

The food is ok but often too salty for my own taste but most of all the owners are really so unfriendly to clients and staff that it does not make me enjoy this place. The TV always on is also not a plus.

We went to the Sardinia on our last night in Africa. After 3 weeks of touring we were all tired of steak or chicken and as a Vegetarian I was especially ready for a meal that wasn't an after thought. I had the spinach ravioli and it was wonderful. Homemade pasta and homemade bread--what more can you ask for. Our... More

Sardinia is well worth visiting. The menu offers a wide range of options (classic and the more exotic). The quality of the food was good and the portions large enough to satisfy a table of hungry men. In addition, the wait staff were friendly (By Namibian standards). Despite being busy, the food was prepared quickly and arrived hot.
