Great place to sit and unwind and taste the locally brewed beers and taking in the scenery. Unfortunately we did not get a chance to taste the food and were in Swakop for too short a time to try later on.More

Lovely place to have a meal while looking out at the ocean. Ravioli was bland but passable. Meat dishes are definitely their speciality - the sausage platter was great!
