Went late for food around 2015. Table not Free so with an other persoon at THE table. Service was friendly possible to do THE buffet if you are really hungry. We opted for steak only. Beer was good and cold. Steak was great. 4 beer, two steaks 260 ns! And live music

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

Barrels is a very small bar/restaurant which offers a a-la- carte menu and a small menu, their eisbein is good. Go early to secure a table . One of the better restaurants in Luderitz

Went on a Thursday night. Place was not full, sat at one of the big tables with a few others. Had the buffet meal, an all you can eat deal. This must be the best deal in town. The food was terrific, goulash soup, fish paella, roast lamb, and the best of the lot the lamb ribs. Don't forget the... More

Barrels fills up very quickly so try to get there when they open. You may still be required to share a table with other guests. But its worth it - the eisbein is a real winner. The buffet is excellent value. And the experience is not to be missed.

Place was packed with no place to sit - kitchen closes kind of early. Never got to eat, only drink. Staff was pleasant.

Excellent address in Lüderitz. Very homely and with an absolutely excellent food buffet. It's simple but the quality is excellent. Great atmosphere ... we were asked often is everything was ok, and due to the setup, we were soon talking to other travellers and locals. For food or just a drink, I highly recommend Barrels. It was a really nice... More

Barrels is another tourist spot- it's got an energetic vibe on the weekends and fun decor. A bit crowded/cozy around dinner time with not so many tables. Service is ok- pizza takes awhile to cook (but it's really good and only N$70 for a small and N$100 for a large). A daily buffet is also offered for N$145. Don't leave... More

The buffet is good. The atmosphere is nice (more like a pub than a restaurant). Here you can find some nightlife in Lüderitz.

A lovely place to have dinner. Fully occupied every night. Superior food. A buffet consisting of inter alia oxtail, paella, spare ribs, soups, veggies, pasta.....for 145 Namibian Dollar. It is well worth it!
