“At least SEE the oryx!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2013

Always an experience, this time we were wowed by the sheer size of the portion of oryx served up; more of a family roast than a meal for one! It's a shame the Joe's shop has closed, as the T-shirts etc used to make great presents. My salad was not very good value, and there were no prawns on the menu which disappointed some.

“Great atmosphere and good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2013

After 3 weeks in working in the dessert this place was like heaven! A must try when in Windhoek. Really cannot understand how this food is pub food as claimed by another reviewer. They must be used to some pretty special pub grub!

The best thing though is the atmosphere! Bonfire, cool decor/artefacts....

“Very busy, good to meet other people”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2013

If you like it very full and loud and don't mind sitting together with other guests on the same table then this is the place to be. The food is a typical pub food.

“good food and beer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2013 via mobile

Ate there with a large group of people and they were all very happy with their food. Good beer, wine and cocktail selection.
Food came out a bit slow so be patient and enjoy the unique decor and have a beer.
