Brilliant! Very good place. Tuna steak a bit well done, but dessert to die for. Atmosphere is electric and I love the fact that there are three sections, sushi bar, bar and restaurant. A must when in Windhoek.

Dear Guest
Our sincere thanks for your support, your feedback and your review. We need to get our service and value rating with you up to 5 stars - please give the Duty Manager feedback as soon as something is not 5-star (like an overdone piece of tuna - not acceptable). We look forward to your continued visits.
Kind regards, Alison

The menu is varied, catering to most tastes, and the food tastes spectacular. The story behind NICE is also very heartwarming, as all of the waiters are chefs in training, so they get to experience the sharp end of their future careers. An awesome central lounge area for relaxing afterwards. I recommend the beef or game, as that produce is renowned in Namibia

Visited NICE with friends in November. The food was very good, as was the wine list. Also service was up to high standard, which was really appreciated. The venue is comfortable and classy too. Prices very reasonable for the experience.
