Came for dinner, ordered cherry tomato soup as a starter and lamb shank as a main. Food arrived quickly, and it was cooked to perfection. Delicious food, great service and lovely ambience. NICE is always a good idea.

Description
CURRENTLY CLOSED, Reopening mid 2018!

In addition to being a commercial restaurant and venue for functions, NICE also serves as the Living Classroom for trainees honing their skills in the culinary arts and food & beverage service. Many years ago, the land that NICE sits on was once a family home for the Bruckners. The family were prominent in the business community and in the mid 1980's started purchasing land near Sossusvlei while the sheep industry began to fall. The idea was the establish a conservation area free of fences to help restore the land. His son, Stephan, utilised the land to establish a commercial business, Wolwedans, which has grown into a successful collection of camps and lodges promoting ecotourism. However, the problem of finding qualified Namibians in the culinary and hospitalisty industry to employ was always present. Therefore, Stephan Bruckner transformed the home in which he grew up in into the Namibian Institute of Culinary Education
