Very nice setting around the courtyard. Service on our evening was rather. My husband had the Pork, which was very nice. My steak, well, I left half, so that says it all. But yes I would go back as it is such a nice setting.

This is an excellent restaurant. The setting is delightful, in a Mediterranean style courtyard. The wine list is extensive and of fine quality, at reasonable prices. The fillet steak was one of the best cuts of meat I have ever had the pleasure to sample. The service is friendly and efficient. If you are passing through Windhoek, I would highly... More

And the food in my opinion is the best by a long mark. International in style overlooking a very pretty courtyard, there is a great range of steaks, but I stuck with seafood on the two occasion I dine there last year in November 2013. I had calalmari tubes done in a very executed beurre blance sauce and the second... More

If Namibia is has the second best beef fillet on earth, here is the place to prove it. There is a reason why a reservation at any given time is a must. But once in, just whow.

We are regular visitors to Windhoek and always make a plan to visit 'the Stellenbosch': one of our favourite eateries in Windhoek. On Saturday July 26th my mate Eduardo and I had gone for an amazing mountain bike ride in the surrounding rolling hills. The cycle built somewhat of an appetite - which was well taken care of by the... More

Probably one of the best restaurants in Windhoek. Beautiful atmosphere, great service. It's all about THE meat. Everything else on the plate seems a little forgotten by the chefs. The side salad is rather disappointing. But about THE meat...nothing but praise. I do find the amount of cigarette smoke that lingers outside on the terrace rather annoying.

One really nice place in Windhoek offering you excellent service, tasty food, fine wines all served in a very romantic ambience. Do not miss visiting this place when in Windhoek - you'd probably enjoy it just as much as I did.

Nice spot, but a bit hidden one - Nevertheless, slow service,plates were cold and the worst: Our Waiter interrupted us while we were talking and took away the plate while there was still a little left.
