Description: Located on Swakopmund's historical iron Jetty which, after being closed for 10 years was renovated and reopened to the public by The Lighthouse Group on 6 August 2010. Breathtaking views looking back from the Atlantic ocean to land, or out to sea. A varied menu serving seafood dishes, sushi, steaks and more. Perfect for that romantic date or special occasion. A must for every visitor to Swakopmund

“End of pier dining”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Great position at the end of the pier with friendly staff, but the fish selection was limited. Kingklip was OK

“An idyllic afternoon”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

The Jetty is located, guess where, at the end of the jetty on Swakopmund. We had a wonderful afternoon sitting ourside watyching Swakopmund to our right, and the sunset on our left. Can't find a negative thing to say about this place. Great menu, great service, great location, and a great place to spend some time

“Mmmmmmm”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

Our travel agent made our reservation about two months ago, but the restaurant has a new reservation book – fortunately they found the reservation in an old diary and decided to “make a plan” to “create” a table for us, after insisting that we did not have a reservation. We offered to pay the bill in full, even though we hardly touched our main courses, in order to avoid an argument – they somehow thought that we should not pay for one of the main courses. Quite disappointing.

“Average with poor service.”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

For a fish restaurant they seemed to be out of alot of fish dishes. Nothing exceptional and the waiter battled to explain dishes. It was also rather annoying that we were seated at a table that had a family with small children who kept running around screaming, lying on the floor and just generally being disruptive. Not conducive to a relaxing dinner at all.

“Great for a special occasion”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

Going to this restaurant was a treat for us while backpacking. Compared to prices at home it was extremely great value for money and easily ranked as fine dining.
The staff were very friendly our host made great conversation as well as being very knowledgeable about the menu. We had a selection of game meats that were beautifully cooked, great portion sizes and overall quite fancy.

I would recommend this if you want something a bit special. Head there at sunset, the location over the water is stunning.
