The view is actually one of the best in the city. But the restaurant was a bit disappointed, this because fine cuisine merged many flavours, too much in my opinion, the service is good but it's really overpriced.

I was invited fro lunch and had a starter, main course and desert. The portions and not massive which allows you to have a 3-course meal. The quality of the food and presentation was outstanding. The flavours were also very good.

Great view of Windhoek! I was a bit disappointed that the only true German beer on tap was the Edinger. The food was good, not great. A good stop for drink or two, nothing more.

One of the most beautiful restaurants I've visited thus far. Breathtaking views of the city and mountains. The castle is perhaps just as amazing as the view. Service was quick and the food matched everything else. Definitely a place to visit when in Windhoek

lovely and exquisite hotel with fantastic view from the garden terrace. The staff was helpful and warm. Rooms were done in a stylish and luxurious way although the price one pays you expect at least drinking bottled water on the house..that indeed was disappointing. The...More
