“Great service and overall dining experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

Great service from restaurant manager as well as wait staff and stands out as a clear service winner in Windhoek. Great steaks and overall experience - first night in Windhoek and was taken by my hosts to a real winner

“Disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014 via mobile

Was so looking forward to traditional German cuisine.

The portions was indeed in keeping with fine dining, the food however did not match that expectation.

The meat was over cooked on my plate, excessive use of salt and so forth.

Wine list is not bad, pricing is on the expensive side, but the first two choices not in stock.

Pricing: not in keeping with the value, rather go elsewhere. A pity for what is known as / has a reputation as an institution of German fare in Windhoek.

Suggestion: get rid of the hordes of staff standing around and train those you have well. All about the basics.

“Excellent food from an excellent chef...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

The view from the veranda is nice, overlooking the main downtown street and Zoo Park. The salads and soups are excellent, and entres that I have tried (6 visits) have all been very good to absolutely outstanding! The wine prices are also good, and they have a wide selection of wines, most of South Africa or Germany.

You will have missed something if you don't try this place out while you are in Windhoek.

“Special Birthday Meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Took my husband to Gatheman's yesterday for his birthday. What a great surprise. Table was specially decorated. Food was awesome and although my husband ordered his meats rare to medium and they were sent out well done, the mistake was rectified within minutes and came back perfect. Then we also received a 50% discount on his main meal since it was his birthday. Service was great and portions big enough to satisfy your appetite. Will definitely come back.
