    OUTJO CAFÉ-BACKERIE: A QUALITY QUICK BITE ON THE ROAD

    by DAO Updated Mar 1, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    If you are on a road trip through the Northern part of Namibia, your travels will probably take you to Outjo. The Café Bäckerei is a great place top fuel up before an early start from Outjo. You can stop here for a quick pastry or a hot morning meat pie. They also do simple meals like schnitzels, burgers, and chicken. In fact it seemed to be the only dinning option here. I enjoyed a few hot meat rolls early one morning on my way out of the village. Tasty. In fact they have the only 'Meisterbrief" baker in Namibia. If that’s not good enough they also have a Beer Garden and Internet.

    Rocha: Playing pool and pica pau

    by Soili Written Feb 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The restaurant was as they come everywhere. Playing the pool was something that I had never done before, and the evening turned out to be a very relaxing evening. No heavydrinking, but a good evening out with friends.

    Favorite Dish: Pica pau, a plate of small pieces of meat. The sauce is alittle vinegary, but OK. Too salty, though, but then, you can always enjoy one more bottle of beer. Naturally, good Namibian ale.

    The Raft: Very delicious sea food

    by chicabonita Updated Jul 14, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The restaurant is divided in two parts. At the right hand side at the entrance you come to the bar where you can have only drinks. Following to the left you come to the restaurant. Both are very nice decorated with sailing staff and in the floor are some windows that you can see the sea (but when we were there in the evening I coudn't see anything).

    BRAAI

    by DAO Written Jul 31, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Who needs a restaurant when you could be cooking in the beautiful outdoors of Namibia? They are blessed with great weather and you can Braai virtually every night. The word Braai (rhymes with ‘cry’) is Afrikaans for ‘barbecue’ or ‘roast’. To me it translates as simply delicious. You also get to burn stuff to make your meal. Most grocery stores have all your Braai supplies. That includes firewood. It just doesn’t get any better than this. You have to do all the work, but it well worth it.

    Favorite Dish: Texas Steak (large pre-marinated steak from Shoprite) and Boerwoers (a huge sausage of various ingredients and flavours) and some ice cold beers.

    NANDO'S: PORTUGUESE BARBEQUE

    by DAO Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Nandos is an international chain of restaurants that offer a great menu of freshly grilled chicken right in front of you. They use open flames to create a great taste. Nandos celebrates the distinctive tradition of Peri-Peri barbeque that was born 400 years ago when Portuguese explorers discovered Africa food and spices. The first Nandos came into being in Johannesburg in 1987 and here in Namibia (Windhoek) 1995. The salads are fresh and you get to choose your own sauce that the chicken is marinated in. You also select how hot or (or not!) you want this to be.

    Favorite Dish: The Quarter Chicken Meal with medium Peri Pari with salad and rice

    Joe's Beer House: It's a must when you are in Windhoek

    by chicabonita Updated Nov 7, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The restaurant has a very big beer garden which is partly covered by the "lapar" a typical roof. But in the evening (in winter time) it gets really cold if you can't get a table inside. The place is decorated all over with very nice things and souveniers. It is a pleasure to look at all.

    Back again twice in October 2004! On Sundays they have lunch buffet! I ate so much, that I needed a double espresso. The Namibian way to serve it: Bring to single once! :-)

    Favorite Dish: The springboek dish was very very delicous.

    I prefer springboek as meat like it is supposed to be ... But also taste the shooter Springboek it is baileys with peppermint liquor and you have to mix it in your mouth before swallowing ....

    My favourite is the bushman skewer. You get five types of meat: ostrich, crocodile, zebra, kudu and chicken. Didn't eat the chicken as it was to much for me and as I also get chicken in Germany ...

    O PORTUGA RESTAURANT IN WINDHOEK: PORTUGUESE & ANGOLAN DELIGHT

    by DAO Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This place is always busy and it definitely because the food is very good. In fact, this restaurant does superb food, from an exotic and large menu. You can get a peek at your fish (pictured) before they do their magic on it. Ingredients are fresh and tasty and even the economical wines are good quality. If you are in Windhoek for 2-3 days, stop in for a great meal. The menu is massive and varied. Plenty of vegetarian options as well.

    The only thing to be aware of: the staff are slow. It’s a shame because the food is excellent. Also some [people smoke in here. Just give the people smoking at the next table a nasty look and they usually pack it in.

    Favorite Dish: I had the Salad Niçoise for a starter (pictured) followed by an Angolan Fish Dish (also pictured) washed down with some red wine and a cold draft beer.

    Baeckerei Dekker: If in Okahandja,

    by chicabonita Updated Nov 16, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    ....make sure to stop at the Bakery Dekker!

    A "real" German bakery far away from home :-)

    The butterflies are the best! In Germany haven't found a Bakery yet which has as good ones as they have.

    Also the chocolate milk shake is delicious!

    We surely did not made it all the way to Namibia for the food, however, we did try few and you can find in the cities and the camping sites good places where to eat with a high standard of choices and quality.

    The food was also stunning. Well recommended is the seafood extraganza followed by dark and ebony mousse for desert.

    Book early to avoid disappointment

    Favorite Dish: seafood extraganza - line caught fish, prawns, calamari, crayfish to name a few things on the dish

    wish I personally be able to recommend, but will give you a few reference url-z
    The multi ethnic, multicultural history of Namibia is interesting.
    Remember it was a major debate item, high on the agenda of ther security council and general assembly for years, even the world court in the Hague witnessed these activities.

    Favorite Dish: Restaurants offering Namibian-style cuisine which has developed its own particular flavour. ===local venison like gemsbok,kudu and springbok is featured on the restaurant menus. Venison is also delicious when smoked or served as paté. ===OSTRICH steaks, fillets and biltong (strips of dried meat) are also available. ===There is never a shortage of tasty meat dishes, as Namibia is a major producer of top-grade beef and mutton. ===SEAFOOD specialties from the West Coast include succulent rock lobster, oysters, and fish such as kingklip, sole and steenbras.
    ===Like other spheres of life in Namibia, the German influence is also apparent in local foods, offering a wide selection of traditional sausages and polonies, various types of bread, and superb confectionery. ===Local beer is light and refreshing and brewed according to the traditional Reinheitsgebot (purity laws), using only natural ingredients.

    My favourite restaurant is one I can't recall the name of. It was a seafood restaurant in Swakopmund on the beach front down from the Museum. The fish was superb. Most of our meals were usually camp meals and this was a delightful change.
