“Once upon a time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2014

Once upon a time the Hansa Hotel used to be the finest place in Namibia and when it comes to the cuisine, it still belongs to the upper ten. Where else is your coffee brewed freshly at your table? There is a reason that some old families from Windhoek fly in only for that fabulous Sunday dinner.

“A superb, high quality restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2014

We were made a reservation here by our guest house for a Sunday evening. There is limited choice in town for dining on this day so we didn't have many other options. However we were absolutely delighted with the Hansa Hotel.
The hotel is very classic and traditional. It is a formal setting and seems a pleasant reminder of the past. Staff are in traditional uniforms, service is silver service, and meals are elegant but with a modern twist.
I ordered a starter of shrimp (huge portion) and shared the chateaubriand with my father. The range of vegetables and side dishes included was excessive. My husbands fish was beautiful, and my mothers steak was equally good.
Included in the meal was sorbet between courses, the service and more importantly value for money was extraordinary. I cannot recommend more highly.

“Elegance and grandeur”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2014

We where invited to share a meal with another family, we arrive earlier and where directed to the bar to wait for their arrival. Comfortable seats with attentive batman offering soft drinks for the youngest and a sweet full cream sherry to temperate the cold night.
After a nice chat we proceed to the restaurant and the table was really set beautifully. Cutlery and glasses sparkling. Large selection of dishes with African cuisine plates present.
I will highly recommend the fillet Baudelaire for two that can easily satisfy three.
A bit pricy but fully justifiable.
I will recommended for especial occasions

If you enjoy good food, in an old world elegant setting with a very special menu and equally special food and desert then this hotels dining experience is a must. The waiters were friendly and attentive and the manager Heino makes sure that the restaurant operates smoothly. The ambience is great !

“GREAT food EXCELLENT service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014

Enjoyed a wonderful meal in a quiet elegant dining room with attentive waiters. Heino (restaurant manager) was particularly caring and made us feel so welcome. Went back again and experienced the same treatment. Was an amazing dinner both times.
