“AMAZING”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

Joe's is by far the COOLEST bar I've ever been to. Great service, really cosy feel and very friendly staff. Food was exceptional, though was a bit upset as they didn't have croc or zebra on our first visit (at the start of our trip) and then on our second visit a few weeks later, they didn't have any again. (This was 2011, so might've changed menu etc since then). All in all we had a very enjoyable few nights, the atmosphere is fantastic. If you have a flight the next day then I would recommend staying away from Stroh rum, which the bartenders conveniently changed the name of each time we went to the bar so we'd order another. haha.

“Something for everyone”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

Joe’s beerhouse, a legendary & unique slice of Namibian hospitality & cuisine, offers a wide range of local yet exotic flair & sumptuous meals to satisfy even the most conservative to experimental palates. :) And a Windhoek Draught is a must have

“Not hot!”
Reviewed June 10, 2012

Went to the famed Joe's last night dissapointing food and service, Ran out of food items and no freshly baked bread! A pity as everyone recommended it as a must do dining experience definitely below average.

“Excellent food and atmosphere”
Reviewed May 19, 2012

This restaurant has a fantastic atmosphere, full of quirky artifacts and stuffed animals.
There is a great range of food (mainly meat) and the portions are huge
A great night out for either a few drinks or a great meal

“Poor service”
Reviewed April 12, 2012

Since the new owner took over in 2011, the service is poor and the food is bad! Last time we waited for more then 60 min. before we could eat! I think Windhoek has better places to eat zebra's, gemsbok or other game meat.
