Ok, kitchen got an African touch, but overall quality was below really good. Service was more than slow, been there with my wife and I had my lunch finished before she got her's. And it was the one and only restaurant in Namibia we went,...More

They grilled pork was excellent and it was served with a side salad and a bowl of extra chips! Couscous was aromatic and light. Ice cold ciders and very quiet and relaxing atmosphere. Great décor style, comfortable sitting. Ideal for birthday parties

Lots of choice on the menu and if you don't see what you like, ask your waiter, he might have a surprise for you. Be careful, there is another restaurant on Independence street called "La Marmite" (looked nice, but it is not the same).

That's definitely a good option if you are around central Windhoek. Nice variety of well prepared food, good service and good value in a quiet, green corner of a park right at the city centre.

Looking forward to a good West African meal but left very disappointed. I had the Cameroon curry which lacked taste or spice and the meat was very tough. Service friendly enough and both the toilets and kitchens could do with a deep clean

I was looking forward to eating at La Marmite after we couldn't get a table at Joe's beer House. It was recommended in the lonely planet guide but sadly did not meet expectations. Interesting menu with lots of African dishes. Goat head, morpano worms, oryx...More
