Our hotel recommended this place for beer, and if you like lager or wiess beer they are good, although they have no darker beers. However, the meat was great -- all kinds of game meat -- oryx (our favourite here and throughout Namibia) kudu, zebra, springbok and even crocodile. Some of it was undercooked (we ordered medium-rare) Service good. The... More

It really is a "must" to visit Joe's Beer House when in Windhoek. Fantastic steaks - both beef and game - and ever so friendly service, and of course the Windhoek Draft kept on coming. We were very lucky the the B&B owners where we were staying told us about this place and actually gave us a lift there -... More

When in Windhoek, do spend an evening at Joe's! it is a lively, laid back restaurant and bar with a terrific atmosphere and a great, interesting eclectic collection of old memorabilia. The food, while average, was enjoyable and the service attentive. On a warm evening choose a table outside and be sure to make a booking to avoid disappointment.

We were lucky enough to be able to get a taxi from our guest house to go to this bar for drinks and dinner. Our last night in Namibia. It was very busy but luckily our excellent guide had booked a table for our party. The portions of food were huge as ever in our experience in Africa. Our guide... More

This is our second time to Joes and again a very good experience. We visited for lunch this time on our way back to Joburg. We had bratwurst and the pork schnitzel. Both very tasty. The waitress was very efficient and pleasant. A definite must visit

When we were in Botswana, we were told that we had to stop by Joe's Beer House. It's a one of kind place. I think we counted at least 5 bars at Joe's. Very unique decor, it's hard to explain. Joe's had a good variety of beers including some craft brew. I recommend it for a fun evening out.
