This is one of the best restaurants in Windhoek, with a varied menu, delicious food and good service. All four of us enjoyed our different choices. They also have a sensible wine list with good choices from reasonable to fairly expensive wines.

Ambience is reasonable, but crowded & noisy & rather cold inside even before the winter sets in. Soup was good but already only lukewarm. 'Medium-rare' fillet steak was well done to overdone & had obviously been standing & drying out, the Manager contested this persistently before eventually agreeing a replacement which was fresh juicy & good.

I had booked for me and my husband in advance as it was our wedding anniversary. I had asked that they make my table abit special (candle light, perhaps a board with a slogan happy anniversary) as this was a suprice dinner. We got there and nothing was arranged. It was just an ordinary table. I didn't query or ask... More

We had a good meal here. After hearing about it from our Windhoek colleagues we expected a lot and I must say it wasn't quite as mind-boggling as all that but the meat was good and the staff were friendly. A nice lively atmosphere, maybe too much so, but I guess you need to choose a quiet table for a... More

Just a great place to end a week in Namibia! I've been to Namibia and Windhoek the last 15 years on a anual basis and this is top notch in Windhoek. Still it's very noisy from the wine bar and it's not my recomendation to have your meal there, better to book in advance and choose a table! I'll be... More

Stellenbosch has a great setting and coming in the evenings for dinner it always has a stunning relaxing atmosphere. Bookings is a must especially if you are a big group. Went with a group of lady friends last night and we were shown to our table immediately. It was only 6:30 in the evening and the restaurant was already busy.... More

Visited the Stellenbosch Wine Bar and Bistro several times, booking the round table every time, as we are a family of 9 and in this way we all can be part of one conversation! The quality of the food and good service was always outstanding! There was only coarse salt on the table and we thought it is something different,... More

This restaurant is set in an awesome building with a open garden setting! The staff are friendly and know what you as the guest expects! The food is wonderful and there are many special wines to choose from! From a Cheese Platter for two for a starter to a Gourmet Steak - you can definitely make this a top restaurant... More
