The friendliness of the staff may have been the result of our apparently well known local host, but was quite remarkable and started our lunch off well. Service was prompt too and the meals all round were good and quite large. Traditional German salad brought before the main meals was also excellent. I can imagine this becoming a standard go-to...

Nice terrace, efficient and service minded waitress. The menu consists of the traditional burger, pasta, salad,steak options but they also had some nice suggestions. The game osso bucco was a tasty option. Don't expect haute cuisine, but a good value for money lunch (eg side salads offered).

Have ate at quite a few cafes and restaurant in Windhoek, but havent come across anyone like this. Most of the locals say the service in Namibia is illusion and its true for most of the places i ate. But this one was different. The food was very good but the overall experience was brilliant.

The staff is very friendly and efficient! The food is good. It is a cafe with long traditions so the decoration and the restroom is a bit outdated, but for me the food's quality and the staff is so good so I give the place a score of 4.

We've been dining here for years on our annual 3 or 4 day stay in Windhoek and have always found the food tops, reasonably priced, friendly and prompt service and seems to be very popular with tourists and local business people. We find it best to sit indoors as it can get a bit chilly outside if the wind starts... More

We had our last lunch before departing. We wanted to have Schnitzel and got one. Generous size with chips. Together with a Rock Shandy to complete. Good tasty food. A buzzing place with many people going for lunch. Pleasant to be here.

.. but i must say some of food is quite salty. The goulash and spatzle (dont know if i have that right) is overly salty for me. I just had a cornish pie now and that too was quite salty. The chicken salad roll is also quite salty, im used to having them a bit sweet. I love their breakfasts... More

I normally have lunch here. The food is quite good and the portions are worth the price. Staff and management is very professional and friendly and service is relatively quick. I would recommend this place for a quick yet hearty meal or a coffee.
