Great new restaurant in the middle of town. We were there around 2 weeks ago had a delicious oxtail soup as a starter, probably the best salmon i ever had and a ice cream for dessert...only disappointment was that the ice cream was not homemade,but still delicious!!!The service was extraordinary for windhoek, our waitress knew the menu perfectly well, recommended a great wine, very charming and on top of that spoke german fluently. We will definitely be back very soon!Thank you for the great evening and many more to come!!!

“Cheap, slow service, food ok”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014

Was there some time ago. The building itself is a nice setup – old living house converted to a Restaurant. But that has it’s fall back as well. We were seated in the last room furthest away from the entrance and Bar. After having placed our order, the waitress is not to be seen anymore until your order arrives – or with some luck you can catch her eye, when she serves another table. Literally I had to get up at some stage to go to the front and get attention. Food is quite ok though was not prepared to order at the first place, but there was no issue with getting it redone as ordered. Parking is an absolute horror. No proper space around this place for parking your little car – not even talking about safe parking! Though, all dishes are rather on the inexpensive side – yet, for me this does not make up the shortcomings.

Dear Thomas K, we are glad to respond on your feedback. Sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your visit, as much as you should have. We opened our restaurant mid-October 2013 and you visited in December 2013. We agree that we were unexpectedly busy in a very short time after opening. This had its pro's and cons. Our current service will live up to your expectations - of that we are sure. Secure parking is possible in Fidel Castro street in the yard of the Nursery School across the street - just enquire beforehand. We do have a car guard as well. Parking in Wernhill's parking area just around the corner, is also very safe. We are aware of the parking problem right in front of the restaurant and are planning on providing parking space, as soon as the Municipality give us permission to go ahead - so please bear with us ! We are looking forward to your next visit.

This new restaurant is just next to the Wernhill shopping mall and has good parking facilities. The people who work here do their work with passion which you will tast in the food. A very original menu.
