Step into the restaurant, and you step out of Africa, and into a German brauhaus type place. Good solid German food, and efficient fast service. Some good beers on tap. A good place to go in big groups.

I will not go back to Brauhaus!! The food was excellent. I do consider my upbringing to be cultured. I have been fortunate to experience different cultures and living abroad for the past 18years but the servers at Brauhaus were not very welcoming. Our server finally "warmed up" to us. Aside from her we were ignored and given awkward stares... More

As an overseas German (or someone of German descent, call it what you wish) I do occasionally enjoy visiting remote German outposts in far-flung areas. I suppose if I had been desperate for one of Germany's best-known (=most boring) beers it would have been more fun here. But fact is the pre-lunch beer service was so disinterested in us as... More

It is my second visit and it was better than the first. We had an event. The Restuarant was not booked out exclusively, but we took most of it. I believe the other tourists enjoyed it as much as we did. A big crowd always gives the Brauhaus a wonderful vibe. The entertainment was also great. You have to try... More

After a long drive from Windhoek, we found this wonderful place. The beer is ice cold and the food very delicious. The waitress can be a bit more friendly and helpful, but maybe she had a bad day. Otherwise this is a 2 thumbs up for drinking ice cold beer and eat a delicious meal. Will recommend this place to... More

Make sure to reserve a table, if you plan on eating there on the weekend. Eventhough the Brauhaus serves all the classic German dishes imaginable, we decided to order seafood instead with a starter of game carpaccio and draught beer. The food was very good and comes in big servings. As the restaurant was fully booked our waiter was very... More

We visited the Brauhaus last night and the place was packed. I ate one of the best eisbein's ever! The crackle was crackling just the way I like it, the goulash soup was great and the service efficient and quick despite the large number of people. My colleagues had steak and fish and they all thought it was very good.... More
