Great ambience, fantastic food, over the top service. I'll recommend this restaurant any time. I liked the Oryx steak, medium done, but all the food on the menu is good. Reasonable cost when dinning at Gathemann's

Superb cuisine very delicious on the palate. In a historical building overlooking the historical zoo garden in the centre of city of Windhoek which is quite relaxing . You must see the Christmas city light.

Gathemann has changed its menu from a German type to a more cosmopolitan type menu which in my opinion is a bit disappointing but none the less the food available and served was delicious and well prepared. If the fresh Luderitz oysters are available they...More

We were lucky to get a table here, since many tables were reserved. We chose the beef carpaccio and the springbok carpaccio. They were both very nice! The main courses (chicken fillet and beef) were also great, so we even decided to take a dessert....More

We ate at this restaurant twice - dinner and lunch. Both times we sat on the balcony which was lovely. The menu is expensive for what you get and not a huge choice for those that don't eat meat......
