We stopped here for lunch while heading back to Windhoek. I had planned to bring a group of people attending a conference in Windhoek up here for lunch the following week and wanted to check it out. It's no longer the Garden Cafe as previously reviewed. A sign is still out on the main road but it is now the... More

This is a restaurant that I have the privilege to visit often. I have had nothing but good food and service. To be very honest, I always order one of the burgers. I also order (most of the time) the chocolate peanut butter milkshake. The burger: Thick meaty patty, well season, cooked to a medium heat. Never rubber! Cheese, tomato,... More

The service was attentive and the food infallible. The waitress knew how to speak to the kids and dessert was the best. Incredibly scenic and warm place to be in.

It was quite cold, so we had an excellent dinner close to the fireplace. Food is good and waitresses so kind! Of course if you sleep at the Okahandja Country Hotel, it does not make any sense to drive away to have dinner, because there you can have a great meal!

The Garden Cafe was recommended to us by a friend. We stopped there for a very nice lunch after spending the morning at the local wood carvers market doing some shopping. There were four of us, and we all enjoyed our food (the milkshakes were great) and the service very much. I assume the training aspects of their operation contribute... More

Came across this great cafe by chance whilst looking for a coffee stop on route to Windhoek and our flight home. It's run as a community project for out of work young Namibians who are given training in cafe/restaurant work - and the best of them are employed by the cafe itself. The service was polite and friendly and everyone... More
