We had the buffet dinner and thoroughly enjoyed it. The place has a real nice cosy feel about it. Even the way the food is kept warm on open fires is neat

The restaurant is very small and therefore can only accommodate a few diners. However, when our party of 11 arrived for dinner, we immediately felt that we were in the way of the busy waiters and people trying to eat and intended to leave - The staff noted this and made a plan to seat us outside in a private...

If you want fine dining and overly attentive service, this is probably not for you. But if you want a taste of hearty, unfussy, (and meaty) local cuisine; friendly atmosphere; a good range of drinks, then certainly stop by! The food is hearty and delicious, if basic but at no point does it not do exactly what it says on... More

So we visited this place for old years eve because it received such great reviews. As we walked in the owners introduced himself and read us our rights. Cash only, you pay for your drinks and food upfront and collect your own order from the bar and the food from the kitchen. Well okay that seems ok until you have... More

Opens at 6, but if you'll be there at 6 you might not get a seat - be there 5 to 10min before. Live music from time to time. Ordered Pizza at 6:30, got it at 7:55 since they lost our order. Pizza was not "Italian style", nevertheless it was good. Kind service!

Nice pub with great atmosphere. You have to be lucky, to get a seat when coming late, but you can usually join another table. Food and drink were alright and the waiters very friendly. I have spent two nice evenings there and will always come back.

Very nice food. This restaurant us for the type of person who likes small, cozy and rustic vibes. Not a lot of ventilation as well as seatings. A bit crumped.

This is probably the best restaurant for dinner in Luderitz, they only open at 18:00 and don't take reservation. The prices are reasonable and you have a choice between a buffet or a la carte. It is a limited menu but the food is not bad. I had the grilled chicken which was fine, some in the party had Eisbein... More
