The restaurant is nicely located, right next to the zoo park, in the very city centre. The staff, including the boss who exchanged a few words with us, is very gentle and nice. And finally, the food we took was very good and tasty. I...More

There's a reason there are no locals eating at this place - and it's not the prices. While the location is gorgeous & central and the shady ambiance is lovely the food is pretty terrible. The supposedly Senegalese stews lacked spice or herbs or any...More

They grilled pork was excellent and it was served with a side salad and a bowl of extra chips! Couscous was aromatic and light. Ice cold ciders and very quiet and relaxing atmosphere. Great décor style, comfortable sitting. Ideal for birthday parties

Lots of choice on the menu and if you don't see what you like, ask your waiter, he might have a surprise for you. Be careful, there is another restaurant on Independence street called "La Marmite" (looked nice, but it is not the same).

Saw a lot of negative reviews of this place, but decided to give it a try anyway because it's one of the few places offering African cuisine (why is this?). I'm glad we did, because none of the things the negative reviewers complained about happened...More

That's definitely a good option if you are around central Windhoek. Nice variety of well prepared food, good service and good value in a quiet, green corner of a park right at the city centre.
