Entering the restaurant specially at night you can enjoy a great view! The atmosphere is a mixture of classic (tableware and setting) and modern: the furniture. The food was quite good, modern without excess. In particular we liked the fish appetizer. But also the Black Forest dessert (disassembled) was delicious. Fantastic wine cellar at an affordable price.

I ate dinner at Leo's at the Castle and it was one of the best dinners I have ever had. I had the chicken breast filled with fresh thyme and kaffir-limes. It was so good I had to give my compliments to the chef (which I have never done anywhere before). This is the place to eat in Windhoek even... More

Best view on the sky line of Windhoek. Good place to experience the sunset on the mountains surrounding Windhoek. Very good food served.

This is an excellent restaurant by any standards! The staff were very friendly and efficient. The wine menu should be the envy of many restaurants. The wine may appear to be expensive but they are all aged in their local fabulous cellar: a must see! The menu has many dishes to choose from but the Namibian trio of Game and... More

If you are looking for a fine dining restaurant, then this is it. Some dishes are better than others. The game meats and seafood were delicious (albeit over-salted), whereas the Italian (ravioli, risotto) sub-standard. Having said that, it was overall a good experience. We were disappointed that we were unable to dine out on the beautiful outdoor terrace - which... More

Stay away from the highly touted Leo’s Restaurant. We reserved a table at 7:00 to celebrate our last night. We ate on the terrace overlooking the sunset and the city lights. It was beautiful until the service started. The service was slow (I would describe it as glacial). We ordered the chef’s special (Carol had loin of eland) and I... More
