“Nice food, BIG portions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

We had dinner at JB twice and really liked the food. The portions are huge. We had game kebab, goulash and local is lekka dishes. Do try the sweetcorn mieliepap, it was no problem at all to change the side dishes - which we found surprising as the beerhouse was buzzing with people. So all in all great food and great staff. Only tiny downside: The tables are big so if you come as a couple you sit at a table with many others, so if you want some privacy maybe this isn't your place.

A must for anyone who spends even one night in Windhoek. Calling all carnivores looking for exceptionally good food, ambience, service and and experience to keep dinner partiy conversations alive for years to come.

This was our third time at Joe's and it remains a fun place to eat in Windhoek. The food is good and the menu offers some unique options for the traveller or tourist. I recommend Joe's.

“A Must”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

Joe's Beer House was recoomended to us but we had no idea what to expect. What a pleasant surprise. The restuarant is made up of different areas very interestingly decorated. You really need to walk and look around. We were there for Sunday lunch and the buffet was extensive and delicious as were the desserts.Take your time and savour the food because you can go back as many times as you like. The staff were friendly and the service was good.
