Though it looks like a tourist place at first sight, many locals go there as well. It's offering German and Namibian cuisine, both very well prepared and lekker! Staff is friendly and quick, so it's absolutely worth a visit!

The service is good (although not the friendliest) even though the place is always packed. The waiters make sure that you always have something to drink. The beer is good but the wine selection is poor; it's a brauhaus after all! The menus is simple but good and food comes quickly. If you want an eisbein, you gotta have it... More

Pretty hilarious place. It was chock full of old, drunken white guys (with a black guy or Chinese guy here and there) who were all in good cheer. Bartenders friendly and prompt - definitely happy to keep the beer flowing here and I respect that. Waiters in 30s-40s and dressed traditionally, including some pretty gals who seem aware of it....

I was here with a group of friends from work. Had a great time. Hostesses were very good and efficient with a large table. The boot of beer is great, best to share! The eisbein is amazing! Let me repeat that, it is amazing. Best I have ever had! Great vibe!!

Great place to enjoy typical German food and an ice cold beer. If you take a seat at the bar and you speak German you might learn to know some interesting people.

You do not have to travel to Germany to experience the typical German Gemuetlichkeit, Eisbein and Bier !In the heart of Swakopmund is 'Das Brauhaus', an ideal restaurant to chill, meet with friends and enjoy the best local and important German beer and local delicatessen like oryx and kudu steak! Get ready to spend a happy time here, where the... More

Unlike some of the other reviewers, we liked the staff. They were friendly en the service was fine. BUT... the food wasn't good at all. The German specialty: my schnitzel was very bad quality meat, greasy and not tender at all. My husband took a steak, that was ok-ish. Then we tried a dessert; another German specialty; apfelstrudel (apple pie).... More

Step into the restaurant, and you step out of Africa, and into a German brauhaus type place. Good solid German food, and efficient fast service. Some good beers on tap. A good place to go in big groups.
