Though it is located out of town it is worth to visit the restaurant. Service, food and wine were excellent. The oysters d'jour as an entree were delicious as well as the grilled calamari rings, prawns and kingklip. If you like dessert you have to taste their creme brulee. Going to the Wreck was an excellent experience. Highly recomandable.

Our guest house recommended this restaurant and it was certainly a most pleasant surprize. The location although a little out of town, is superb overlooking the sea. The staff were smart,attentive and prompt. The choice of dishes was good and the plated presentation excellent. The food also entirely lived up to the presentation and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Would... More

Whilst staying in Swakopmund we ate dinner at the Wreck restaurant and also at the Tug. They were both very good and quite different to each other. The Wreck is the more formal of the two restaurants and worth the short drive from the centre of Swakopmund, We had a very enjoyable dinner and the service was also good.

This restaurant is a good 10 minute drive from Swakopmund but the setting is worth it. We had a lovely meal here although the waiter was a bit of an unfriendly sort of fellow who seemed to have been in a bad mood,was rather abrupt and spoke English badly!.

On a recent getaway to Swakop we accidentally found the Wreck Restaurant, and what a gem!! Out of the hustle and bustle of the town, much closer to our accommodation and fantastic food! The service was excellent and the view matched the quality cuisine. And completely affordable too!

My family and I had a good experience. They were accomodating to our young children. The location is really nice looking over the ocean and my oldest son thought we were dinning on a real ship so he was exited.
