This place has a lot of character! Fun surroundings. Packed even on a week night. Make sure you make a reservation. And if you go in the evening, dress warmly as the interesting outdoor seating areas can get chilly.

We ate here as part of a large group so our food did take ages to come which is to be expected. The drinks were lovely and the whole place has a really cool vibe with the music and fire pit. Would recommend.

Joe's Beer House is an awesome restaurant where you can get a great meal, including game meats and great drinks, even on a Sunday night. It was a great watering hole that served up a motley crew of personalities and people from all walks of life. Great atmosphere!

A large place that has been split into so many different indoor / outdoor / upstairs / downstairs areas that it nevertheless feels cosy. All the quaint decorations do their part to add to the atmosphere. The food is solid, with a good choice of items on the menu and an extensive drinks list. This is a pub-type establishment, so...

A very nice place to try game meats. We went for dinner. Reservations are recommended. We went on weeknight and the place filled up fast. The decor is very entertaining. The staff is very efficient and quick. I wish they didn't rush you so. There is on street parking. The wifi is on open network. Toilets are clean. Place is... More

Joe's Beer House still a very relaxed and friendly restaurant. The food is good, the waitress are constantly checking on you. All in all Joe's still has it and I am recommending it to my friends to try it.

Service is very slow. Food is average but meat dishes are so tough you cannot eat it. The atmosphere is beautiful and unlike any other bistro in Africa. If this is your first time in Namibia, Joes Beerhouse is a must if only to have drinks.

Look, this one of those places everyone tells you that you have to visit.......it may be worth it just to look around but if you are expecting good food don't bother. Our group tried both entries.....butternut soup and prawn cocktail....nobody could eat them. Main meal was Kudu steaks, we covered rare, medium and well done....the rare was sent back twice... More
