Pretty crowded by many tourists. Food was okay, but not excellent and was in our view a bit too pricy for the quality.

Very authentic place that worth’s the visit. We found food just ok. Oysters were really nice but t-bone and fillet were simply average. Bill very acceptable so nice experience overall

You just have to visit Joe's while in Windhoek, what an experience. Great food from various eateries, so many ice cold beer on tap to chose from and the service is always top drawer and with a smile.

I was recommended to eat here and the restaurant is unique in terms of atmosphere and decor. The food was average to good ie butternut soup, sirloin steak with jacket potato and followed by a watery coffee. Service was excellent and comprehensive.

Working in Windhoek for long periods of time makes one go back to the same place more than once. For a relaxed chilled experience, this is the place to go. If you are a big group, prebook a table as they pump every evening. Wear...More
