Great food

We dined during our stay in Swakopmund and were very happy with the quality of the food, price and service. A little too formal compared to our normal kind of restaurant but this was our only issue.

Unfortunately visitors to Swakopmund will no longer be able to sample the delights of this wonderful place. The business had to close after a 7 year battle with a local developer, (who incidently has now decided not to build next to the restaurant), over the license issued to provide a dining experience to the public. A sad end to a... More

Sadly the standard of service and quality of food deteriorated and the meals we here in January 2015 were a massive disappointment. Since then the restaurant has closed down (for reasons other than mediocrity).

This restaurant is a short (10-15min) drive outside the town but there are several good hotels nearby in which case it is just a walk. We booked on-line for the following early evening. The restaurant called back to confirm. The restaurant has panoramic views out to sea. As this was the first time we hadn't camped in almost three weeks... More

Possibly the worst meal I have ever had; firstly when we arrived we were ignored by the "manager" when he eventually looked up we were asked to wait because our table wasn't ready yet. When we sat down my husband ordered a starter which was okay; we ordered our mains at the same time; which eventually arrived, I ordered grilled... More

I loved everything about this restaurant. Our B&B in Swakopmund arranged for a driver to take us and pick us up. It is a very modern restaurant. The food was fabulous. Service amazing. We really felt as if we had a special night out!
