8. Joe’s Beer House
At a time when there’s very little that’s really new. Where true discoveries are harder to come by, and real connections are harder to make, it’s great to know that there is still one road, that will take you on a journey like never before. To a destination like nowhere else, into the heartland of Namibia, where real community still exists.
THAT PLACE IS JOE’S BEER HOUSE
Inspired by the fascinating character of Namibia and its people, Joe’s is where a love for adventure, stories and living to the fullest, comes to vibrant life.
Through our unique combination of delicious and authentic food, heartfelt hospitality, and our one-of-its-kind atmosphere, we feed the mouth and soul, celebrate old memories; and build new ones with you.
It is one of Windhoek’s most-loved restaurants, a sanctuary of great food, combining the best of Namibian and German cuisine. The exciting menu includes typical Namibian game meat such as ostrich, crocodile, springbok, and kudu. For more conservative diners, traditional dishes such as pan-fried kingklip, lamb shanks, and pork knuckle (eisbein) are available, as are a range of vegetarian dishes. Opened in 1991, the restaurant’s fun-filled interior has an earthy feel and is decorated with memorabilia that the owner and master chef Joe Gross collected during his travels. While sipping on a glühweinor a local lager, diners can sit around the enchanting open fire in the outside boma.
