“Good Eatery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

We enjoyed the food and the fact that the place is on the beach - fantastic view of sundown. It was so nice that we went back the second night. Very friendly staff and good food.

“Average”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

Nice place for sundowners but not my choice for dinner. Food not to good, service was friendly. Loved the venue, with the sea a couple of feet away from you but one of the worst meals i had in Swakopmund.

“Average lunch experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

we ate lunch here on one occasion

the restaurant has good views overlooking the sea ,we sat outside , the beer was nice and cold!

we were served quickly by friendly helpfull staff ,but the food quality was nothing to rave about .
we shared a seafood platter that inlcuded mussels with a cheese sauce , pan fried white fish , fresh oysters , and grilled prawns

the dish was large and substantial but the fish had been overcooked .
i preferred the location to the food

“Distinctly average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

We were advised to go hear when we asked some locals where to eat. Although it was not bad ... it also wasn't that good. The staff seemed more interested in closing up than serving and the food was certainly nothing special.

If you have a night or two in Swakop ... I suggest you go elswhere.

“Better than first impression”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

On entering the Lighthouse restaurant it feels a little like a cafe/pub. The menu is stupidly large so makes it difficult to read but after ordering we started to relax a little.
Restaurant gives fantastic sea views and the food tasted great. Plenty of seafood available and the portions were massive. Highly recommend the Lighthouse steak for very hungry guests.
Ignore initial impressions of the place, the food will win you over
