Rhinos Restaurant

Reviewed By DennisCom - Centurion

Great meal in a small town

Had a coffee at Rhino's on my way to Swakopmund and decided to have a meal there on my trip back which I did.It was a bit busy and the food took some time to arrive but it was well worth the wait !! I ordered a chicken schnitzel with mash and a salad it was very surprised with both the quality and the quantity when it arrived. Service was slow but as I said earlier, it was busy. I noticed that virtually everybody in the packed restaurant were locals and were been greeted and treated by the staff as old friends. This told me that the place was the local "place to go". Although mash was not on offer, it was specially made for me and it was the best mash I have had in any restaurant.It was a very satisfying, wholesome, and inexpensive meal. Definitely worth the visit and I would go there again any time!!

Garden Cafe

Reviewed By Vienna68 - Hampshire, England

Don't Miss this great cafe

Came across this great cafe by chance whilst looking for a coffee stop on route to Windhoek and our flight home. It's run as a community project for out of work young Namibians who are given training in cafe/restaurant work - and the best of them are employed by the cafe itself. The service was polite and friendly and everyone was delighted to see us. Has both indoor and outdoor seating and is nicely decorated. Parking is safe in its own car park. If you are in this area, do give the cafe and the people a visit.

Grand Lake Spur Steak Ranch

Reviewed By brokgoud - Den Bosch, The Netherlands

a good place for breakfast and lunch

We were with a bigger group and had a late breakfast here. The waitresses were very efficient and friendly and spoke Afrikaans to us. We had excellent platters with eggs etc. And the service was quick. The place is part of a chain but still pleasant also for children.Dear brokgoud,Thank you so much for taking the time to review our family restaurant. We are delighted to know our branch lived up to your expectations of food and service. We hope to offer you many more Spurrific experiences with us in the future. Many thanks, Spur Family

Visit the statue of Hosea Kutako, a nationalist hero, in the gardens surrounding the Tintenpalast, the seat of the Namibian legislature, or chow down on ostrich kebab or zebra steak at Joe’s Beerhouse before leaving on a safari into the Namibian wilderness.
