From the warm welcome into the restaurant, with the added touch of personally being assisted by the manager on the appropriate wine selections, this restaurant is a definite stop, on any day trip through Windhoek. Cozy atmosphere and excellent food. You could not ask for a better evening out.

I was invited to dinner by an old colleague who is currently working in Namibia. We had a booking and were greeted warmly on arrival. It was a lovely warm evening so we asked if we could be seated outside. Our host was unsure whether there were available tables in the courtyard, but quickly accommodated our request. The venue is...

Main course (hake) was unfortunately burnt and tasted like leather shoes. French fries were half done and had a taste of washing powder.

I have never experienced such exceptional service in Namibia except for this fine restaurant. The manager on duty is just amazing and the food is divine. Although I found the menu a bit limited I love going to this place for its excellent location, ambience, food and most importantly service. At the end of the day we leave with a... More

We went with my boyfriend to the restaurant with 5 other friends on the evening. The place was nice, but the food not too good. I took a salad, there were too much salt and pepper, my boyfriend took the sirloin, it was very raw. He still decided to eat it, but did not really liked it, something was wrong,... More

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.
