Food not that great but a lovely atmosphere. Will not go back after my last visit food was too salty even our snails. I could finish anything. I was very dissapointed after my last visit because the previous visits was very pleasant and the food was always great.. I prefer, like most people not too much salt in my ....

The best food, the best vibe, the greatest place in Windhoek to eat or grab a beer. There is no other way to put it. The set-up and way the place is decorated is incredible it blew us away. Do not miss having a meal here if you're in Windhoek. The best!

Huge place and great atmosphere. Unfortunately our food was served during a downpour, the poor waitress was soaked carrying it from the kitchen, plates and food were wet from the rain which had splashed the liquor that's served with some meals over the veggies and chips too - it tasted awful

We had to try out the famous Joe's Beer House and it did not disappoint one bit. Amazing steak, cook to perfection, with brilliant sides - baked potato, onion rings and coleslaw. Great atmosphere... Booking seems essential as we pitched up 25 minutes after they opened on a Sunday afternoon and the place was absolutely packed.

I really loved this place. It's crowded and you can observe people from all over the world. It's really necessary to book a table in advance. After I was there for the first time, I had to go again before I left Namibia :). Maybe it was special because of nice company and my first game meat experience, but the... More

We went here for dinner one night: fun place, tasty food, and good fast service -- even when packed. Some observations: - reservations are a MUST for dinner. This place is very popular. - the beer list is pretty small. I was really hoping to have some variety, but it's the standard Namibian fare. The wine list is paradoxically more... More

This place in just AWESOME!!!!!

Came here with a large group of friends, some tourists but many locals. There was a diverse crowd in a very lively atmosphere and cool decor. I had some really unique food like a zebra, oryx and other things I have not had before. It wasn't quite cooked the way I asked but very good nonetheless otherwise I would have... More

Joe's is an institution. It is a large space with very unique setting and decorations. It is a very lively atmosphere. The menu has wild game (Zebra, Oryx, etc), but also some more traditional fare, though heavy on the meat. Large portions. You sit at shared tables with others, which adds to the ambiance. We did not realize that you... More
