Had a 2 day ArchiCAD training course at NICE. The conference room was well equiped and well positioned to prevent unnecessary disruptions from the rest of restuarant operations. The food was delicious as always and they really were generous woth their servings and serving intervals! Definate must if your planning a function or intimate event. Worth every penny.

My husband and I had lunch here on our last day in windhoek. We sat outside where they have small pools and trees and it's cool and peaceful. Food was delicious and service top notch. Definitely worth seeking out.

I was very impressed by this restaurant. I was dining alone and had not made a reservation, but I was seated within 5 minutes of arriving. The layout is interesting in that there are several large rooms separated from one another. Some much quieter than others. I found that the menu is broad for the average fine-dining restaurant in Southern... More

I recently attended a 30th birthday party at NICE. What a beautiful venue, and the food is absolutely amazing, but the waiter service and the bar service is super disorganised, slow and not very well trained! This restaurant serves some of the best dishes in Windhoek. I often recommend it to guests staying at our guesthouse.

A pleasant experience in Windhoeck. The sushi was good, but not exceptional. In the end, we wished we had order something more typical. It was worth going, specially for the staff and nice environment.

Their food is made by chef's in training from the university and i must have given them a 4.5 rating on this, but can't! Trust me, their food are the best in Windhoek, although a tiny bit more expensive, but worth it as they make it so much special plus you are welcomed with a smile and directed to your... More

The NICE restaurant is it my favorite in Windhoek, the place is excellent, the food superb, but the service a bit down as from last visit in 2015.... I recommend it in any case!
