Arrive 5 - 10 minutes before 6 pm. Barrels opens at 6 and 5 minutes later all tables were taken. Pub atmosphere, friendly staff, small place. Food is served in large quantities, buffet or a la cart. If you are a meat lover, good place...More

We didn't get to enjot Barrels as there were no tables available even though we turned up early. This is the most popular eatery in town. We hope they either start to take bookings or open a Barrels 2

It's dark, a bit noisy, loudish music, great food. The night we were there huge containers of casseroles- meat, seafood and vegetables - were on special. All serve yourself and absolutely delicious. You could also choose from a menu but most patrons seemed to go...More

This is a cozy pub that serves the best lobster in town and a lot of it. It is server by the kilogram and surprisingly well priced. If not the lobster, then try the delicious but sizeable Eisbein.

The shining light in Luderitz. Very limited places to dine in wine in Luderitz. Barrels offers a delightful option to enjoy a good meal, good beers and rustic atmosphere to enjoy the company of locals and other travelers.

I'm not quite sure how often the management of Barrels read Tripadvisor - I'd suggest getting hold of Kratzplatz Guesthouse (+264 63 202 458) and ask them.
