This was an incredible place and it's sad that it had to go. The head chef, David Thomas, now collaborates with several others in the capital of Windhoek and more of his food can be tasted there at JoJos in the old breweries complex.

We went to the Lyon des Sables last week. The building is locked down and empty, apparently closed down. I have learned later that apparently the one owner has moved to South Africa and the other is working at the Yacht Club Restaurant.
