We stumbled upon Barrels in the mid afternoon and went in for a drink and stayed for dinner. The atmosphere is great, the staff were friendly and attentive and the food was delicious - try the eisbein. I was wishing we had a dreary day...More

We had a quick and small dinner here. Both of us had a very good pizza. Not little and thin like toppings on Italian pizza's nor very heavy-fatty-cheesy like America pizza's. Our company (Namibian and American) had a full tasty dish from Beieren as well....More

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

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.
