This is a very touristy restaurant. Fun place - I felt more in the Caribbean than in Namibia.

The food is very average and the portions small. I expected something special with big steaks...etc.

As in most tourist places, service is lacking.

This place could be super if the chef would go the extra mile and the staff start smiling!

This spot came recommended and seemed almost mythical in the descriptions. The location lived up to the legend and it was a fascinating place to visit. The food was good (vegetarian friendly) and the atmosphere was fun.

I live in Windhoek and enjoy eating out. Joe's Beerhouse is my all time favourite, and has been for many years. We go there for anniversaries, special occasions, everyday eating out and of course, to take visiting friends there.
And it is always exciting, good traditional German Namibian food, good prices, friendly service and wonderful ambience.
Return visitors always ask to go again and your friends will enquire whether you have been there.
NOT TO BE MISSED!

I loved the wall decor and eye candy that make this place so famous. The meats and mashed potatoes were vey good and it was a nice place to get a good dinner prior to getting started on our tour of Namibia.
