“Best steaks in Windhoek”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

Best business dinner of the trip. Service, menu, presentation and quality of meat highest experienced in Namibia. Good value in context of european prices which I am used to. If I return to Windhoek this would be my first choice of restaurants to visit

“Good Food & Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

Stellenbosch Wine Bar and Bistro is certainly among the top restaurants in Windhoek. The food is of good quality, diverse, and it is good value for money. Main courses range from 70 - 170 Namibian dollars. The service is generally good but can be a little slow when the restaurant is busy. Bookings are required on weekends. The atmosphere trumps many of the other nearby restaurants. The only reason for giving it 4/5 is due to its gradual loss of authenticity since it opened. Something only a local will notice.

Good Day Erika1810

Thank you very much for taking the time to review The Stellenbosch Wine Bar and Bistro following your dinner with us on Saturday the 31st of May 2014.

While it is great to hear that you, Chris, and your guests enjoyed your Rump, Fillet, Sirloin and Ribeye cuts; it is disappointing to hear that your Chicken Penne Pasta and Kassler dishes were not as warm as they should have been. I do apologise for this and will be sure to bring it to our chef's attention so that we can, especially on cold nights such as Saturday, ensure hot dishes be served to our guests.

In terms of our bread basket service; I believe there was some misunderstanding as we do not generally serve olives nor paté with the breadbasket but only only order from the menu. Ultimately I am glad that we could meet your request for a paté

I once again also wish to apologise to you for the far less than tasty Irish coffee selection that was served to you. As George, our manager on duty, explained we would gladly have substituted them with another fresh round as clearly they were not prepared to standard, however, we happily removed them from your bill as you did not want anything further.

Please feel free to contact me should you wish to discuss this matter further or if you could perhaps suggest any way in which we could improve on the dinning experience for our guests.

Kind Regards

Michael Smith
General Manager

“Fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

Not our first visit, nor our last. We love it and the food is always top notch! The wine selection is great, as well as the outdoor patio and their wine bar as well. The service is great and the wait staff is terrific.

This restaurant is situated in a beautiful complex.
