The Lighthouse Pub and Grill in Swakopmund does exactly what it says on the tin! It serves up burgers, steaks and pizzas in a well drilled format - pick your main offering and add whatever side dishes you fancy. We visited on a Monday evening and they seemed to be struggling a bit in the kitchen even though the place... More

Service is attentive and friendly but when questioning whats on the plate, different story. My girlfriend got a perfectly cooked springbok steak, but my burger turned out underdone. Pointed that out and got the same thing back just heated up. However in the end I got compensated with a new plate of burger with all the extras I could not... More

This restaurant has only just reopened after a period of renovations. I like the location of the restaurant and the layout and feel the outdoor area is a great place for a beer during the day.

we went there to check what has changed after the renovation... and this was the last time I went there. Burgers were not eatable, got wrong side dish, and the stuff was chaotic... it is really a shame that such nice place has got such poor food...

Went here for lunch on our last day in the town. There service was quick and the staff very pleasant. Food was OK, but lacked the WOW factor. We would probably try the place again if we went back to the town but it wasn't a case of we cant wait to get back there.

We arrived at about 830pm and they were about to shut the kitchen so the waitress said we could order if we did so immediately. We thought it was quite early to close up but picked a few dishes as fast as we could and some drinks. Had their house pizza -have forgotten the name, which was tasty. The standout... More

This restaurant impressed us on a previous visit but we were not happy this time around. Prices were expensive, quality of food not good, tables and floors were not clean and we did not enjoy this.
