Namibia Restaurants

You won't find much truly Namibian food (although local venison, seafood, and Namibian oysters are superb); the cuisine is mainly European, often German, though international variety and standards increasingly are found in the larger towns. Lodges usually serve good homestyle cooking—pies, pastries, fresh vegetables, lots of red meat, mouthwatering desserts, and the traditional braai (barbecue). Because of its past as a German colony, Namibia is known for its lager. South African wine, which is excellent, is readily available.
