“Seems to be a cult place in Windhoek”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2008

This is a very large place, but with great food and very friendly and attentive staff. From the outside it looks like nothing's there with an almost unreadable sign - you might even have trouble finding it if you don't know where it is. The interior design is something difficult to describe - better come and see for yourself :)

“You have to try the Bushman Sosatie (kebab)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2008

We ate at Joe's Beerhouse on our last night in Namibia and it was a great experience. The atmosphere is great and the food is excellent. They serve a combination of Namibian and German foods, combined to create an experience you'll remember for a while.

We were a group of 19 when there and 18 of us had the Bushman Sosatie, which is a shish kebab with Ostrich, Crocodile, Zebra, Kudu and Chicken pieces on. The other guy had a Zebra steak which looked really nice.

Back to the Bushman Sosatie though. It came highly recommended by our driver and I can see why. Some of you may only have had Chicken before but the whole thing tasted great. Ostrich tastes similar to a combination of lamb and beef, Crocodile tastes like Pork and both Kudu and Zebra taste similar to Steak so you're all sure to like it.

Compared to some other places in Windhoek it can be a little more expensive but it's worth it. Plus compared to European standards it's still quite cheap. I highly recommend a visit here to anybody that visits Windhoek.
