This is possibly one of the best sunset views in the city. And the city lights after sunset were beautiful too. The food is exceptionally well crafted in fine dining style. Waitrons were attentive. Wine list is very comprehensive. Ask for a seat as close to the edge as possible for the best views. Making a reservation if you aren't... More

This is a great place. They need to advertise more because they are their own best kept secret. THe service is great, the wine cellar fantastic and the apps, sides and mains are very creative, well presented and delicious to the palette. We have been here several times and each time was a delight. All the food is delicious but... More

The restaurant is elegant in decor and a nice location. We had the set menu and it was really good, interesting dishes - from a flavour and visual point of view. The wait staff of which there was many did not quite match the elegance of the food or the decor. At one point there were 2 standing in the... More

Belongs to the great Heinitzburg Hotel. Only few tables and served by attentive staff – they knew we were on our honeymoon and decorated our table with rose petals! Vast wine list (probably unique in Namibia). We went for the recommended menu which included a very flavorful springbok consommé and eland tenderloin which was fantastic. The dessert, a plate with...

Entering the restaurant specially at night you can enjoy a great view! The atmosphere is a mixture of classic (tableware and setting) and modern: the furniture. The food was quite good, modern without excess. In particular we liked the fish appetizer. But also the Black Forest dessert (disassembled) was delicious. Fantastic wine cellar at an affordable price.

I ate dinner at Leo's at the Castle and it was one of the best dinners I have ever had. I had the chicken breast filled with fresh thyme and kaffir-limes. It was so good I had to give my compliments to the chef (which I have never done anywhere before). This is the place to eat in Windhoek even... More
