This restaurant is in a pleasant setting at Bougain Villa in Klein Windhoek. It is possible to eat inside or outside in the courtyard. The place is very nicely furnished and has a huge feature wall/cellar displaying their good selection of very good wines.
There is a small menu which is designed to showcase Namibian meat which is a good idea as Namibian meat is so excellent. Basically this restaurant is a grill with a few extras. I ordered the lamb shanks and was told they were not available even though we arrived quite early - clearly they have a problem in maintaining a consistent source of supply.
We waited a long time for our food and were finally told by the manager that the delay was caused by a problem with the deepfryer which was needed to cook the chips which came with some of our orders. Oh dear, were our steaks cooked ages ago and now languishing under the plate warmer while they fiddled with the fryer? Unfortunately yes, my medium rare steak arrived medium well done and dry along with the soggy, pale, McDonalds style fries that they call chips. The steaks should have been served when ready, with our without the chips - I would have been happy to ditch them or substitute them for something else, but was not happy to substitute the steak I ordered for the overcooked, dried out one that arrived. To make steaks wait for chips shows a lack of common sense and restaurant judgement.
One of our party ordered the "culotte" I think this is a Portuguese cut from the upper rump. It was much better than my steak (bigger and probably survived the wait at the warmer better). It was cooked properly and had great flavour and shows that this restaurant can deliver the goods.
Service is good to average depending on who you get. The wine list is good and ranges from about N$100 to heaps for their top wines. You can get a very nice wine indeed for around N$200-300 (as one would expect) however the wines at the bottom end are fine too.
