We had just finished a 9 day camping safari and ate here with the entire group of 22 people. All of our meals arrived close together, well prepared. I ate a filet of Kudu (game meat) which was very lean and tasty, but not quite as tender as beef. The mushroom sauce was very well prepared. The fish my wife... More

Went here with 3 colleagues. The 2 vegetarians had filling but uninspired meals. The meat eaters had exotic meats and were not disappointed. Nice beers, friendly staff and a good atmosphere in a very large beer hall

We came to legendary Joe´s Beerhouse with high expectations. They were all disappointed. The place is cramped with people. After asking for a table outside we were then being placed inside tightly to strangers, about as close as on an economy seat in an aeroplane. Seat as many people as you can on space that is not available, this will... More
