We were looking for a place to have lunch while shopping and we were directed towards Gathemann. I loved the place, very nicely furnished and decorated. The food was excellent and well presented. We had to wait quite a while for our lunch but it...More

Very nice food (although, frankly we had better oryx later in our holiday) and romantic setting- the interior of the restaurant is fascinating and great terrace. A slightly strange ending when the waitress asked us if we wanted the change back from our bill! I...More

Situated in the old part of central Windhoek with a terrace looking out over a park. Superb gourmet food, made by a Swiss chef. Great taste and textures. The menu is slightly limited, but the daily specials are always excellent. The chef makes extensive use...More

Great supper at a hidden gem in the centre of town. Great atmosphere and a wide selection to choose from.

Excellent as always. We were never disappointed by the Gathemann. It is always a treat to eat there and I have never eaten a better Carpaccio than at Gathemann.

We were a group around 30 persons and were split up on different tables, but in the same area, which represented more or less 50% of the restaurant space. As far as I remember buffet is out of question in such a gourmet... More
