We arrived at 17:20 as we were warned to get there early and we were done with sight seeing. There was already a queue and they don't open until 6pm. We waited in the queue and we're very glad we did. Amazing atmosphere and great...More

We had a quick and small dinner here. Both of us had a very good pizza. Not little and thin like toppings on Italian pizza's nor very heavy-fatty-cheesy like America pizza's. Our company (Namibian and American) had a full tasty dish from Beieren as well....More

Arrive 5 - 10 minutes before 6 pm. Barrels opens at 6 and 5 minutes later all tables were taken. Pub atmosphere, friendly staff, small place. Food is served in large quantities, buffet or a la cart. If you are a meat lover, good place...More

We didn't get to enjot Barrels as there were no tables available even though we turned up early. This is the most popular eatery in town. We hope they either start to take bookings or open a Barrels 2

It's dark, a bit noisy, loudish music, great food. The night we were there huge containers of casseroles- meat, seafood and vegetables - were on special. All serve yourself and absolutely delicious. You could also choose from a menu but most patrons seemed to go...More

Given the history of Luderitz filled with diamonds and fishing we did not expect too much in the way of culinary excellence. However a friend suggested Barrels is a must do if we went with the advice " be there at 18:00 as they do...More

A great little pub, frequented by the locals, with a good atmosphere. The freshly caught lobster is amazing! It is served by the kilogram and is accompanied by soup as a starter, vegetables, choice of starch as well as salad. The greatest value for money...More

I'm not quite sure how often the management of Barrels read Tripadvisor - I'd suggest getting hold of Kratzplatz Guesthouse (+264 63 202 458) and ask them.
