The reason for our dinner booking here for our one night in Windhoek was the outside view from the hillside - and it did not disappoint. It was absolutely the perfect spot to watch the sun go down and city lights go on. Personally I'd have preferred to have a less pretentious meal on the terrace, but we were committed to enjoy the unique setting despite the high cost and limited menu choice.
Service was friendly and efficient but not quite as polished as you'd expect. The waitress clearly didn't know the wines on the winelist, a mix of language menus was handed out (1 German, 3 English), food under cloches didn't arrive simultaneously, bread basket wasn't removed until the end etc. The food was complex and sophisticated but the plating was busy with too many competing flavours. Overall impression was that dishes were rich but not particularly tasty or memorable.
The desserts were decadent and we did enjoy our evening at this unique castle on a quiet Saturday evening (despite the considerable expense).
