“Fantastic and relaxing place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

Am Weinberg has that "something special" to it: location is in the hilly area of Klein Windhoek, overlooking the suburb. Restaurant is set in an old-architecture house, which adds to the flavor! Great food, elegantly served, but what I enjoyed the most was a Beach Bar set outside in the restaurant's palm yard! Sea sand, beach chairs and cozy cushions decorate the bar area, creating atmosphere of the coastal, beach resort. The day I visited, an eloquent and entertaining barman served us most delicious cocktails and amused us with his knowledge of all the drinks' names and ingredients by heart! I visited there more than once.

“Fancy schmancy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

Certainly premium, but it lives up to the prices. Great setting overlooking Klein Windhoek to the hills (great t sunset). If you are feeling flush, then its a good treat (though not exactly a "happening" spot).

“Never again”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

I always refer to trip advisor for hotels and restaurants and for years have trusted the honest opinion of fellow travelers who have nothing to gain or lose by their reviews and do so for the good of others. However on 1 April 2013 we were traveling from Namibia back to South Africa and decided to have lunch at the unfortunately no 1 rated restaurant in Windhoek..
I was traveling with my wife and 3 kids (the youngest being 5). On arrival one of the owners dogs attacked my 5 year old daughter scratching her fairly badly while he the owner did very little but watch..

We ordered gazpacho soup which as outstanding. My kids had pasta and gnocchi which were both good and my fillet on pepper sauce was average.

We ordered dessert for the kids: ice creams and an apple strudel. The ice cream was average. The apple strudel was actually a meat pie!!!!!!! Additionally it had icing sugar on it and was served with ice cream. I find is sort of error unforgivable in any restaurant. The owner then said " oh sorry - the kitchen staff took the wrong item out the freezer". The fact that it came from a freezer and wasn't made fresh leaves me totally disappointed.

The owner removed all the desserts from the final bill and apologized.

Seriously - if this is the number one rated restaurant in Windhoek, Namibia, my faith in trip advisor has been seriously eroded or the owner of the restaurant only has friends and family eating at his restaurant and reviewing it.

Weinberg-Restaurant, Owner at Am Weinberg Restaurant, responded to this review, April 9, 2013
We would like to thank you for choosing our Restaurant and for your review. If one knows one’s mistakes one can avoid them! We are sorry that you and your family didn’t enjoy your stay at Am Weinberg Restaurant.
Regarding the ‘’dog’’, she is not even four months old and wants to play with everyone and everything, of course we are sorry that the puppy jumped your daughter and that she got a fright and suffered some skin irritation. We have made the owner of the dog aware of this and she agreed to go to dog school with her.
Then of course the dessert, we realize that this is a mistake that shouldn’t happen and we do apologize for this again. As you mentioned we did take it of the bill and offered another dessert on the house.
We hope you reconsider your decision and come back to Am Weinberg Restaurant some day, so we can prove to you why we get such good reviews from other guest on trip advisor.

Kind regards
Dr Roland Losch
