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

Eat here when I stopped in Swakopmund. Food was very good and service ok. Location is a great plus. It was recommended by the hotel and we weren't disappointed.

“Delicious”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

We had a super yummy meal here on our first night in Swakopmund. The sprinkbok was cooked to perfection. The chocolate fondant for dessert was just insanely good. We popped outside to watch the sun set over the Atlantic and were treated to a flamingo flyover - magical! Would recommend this place for a classy Swakop dinner.

“Terrible disappointment”
Reviewed March 8, 2014

I had dinner there with my two children last month expecting a lot more than we got. The only positive is the view so if you want the best table ask for one right at the end of the restaurant. Sadly that is where the good times ended. The Tempura Prawns were soggy and tasteless. I ordered the line fish having been told that it was fresh Kob (a really good tasting sea fish from South African waters), however when it arrived it was off. This was confirmed by the manager as I asked him for his opinion, and it also turned out that it had been imported as frozen from South Africa as they were having trouble with their local supplier, so the waiter lied about it being fresh. I also found the attitude of the manager to be less than apologetic. To make matters worse when we had to pay for a disgusting meal (they took off the price of the Kob) the credit card machine was inoperable so we had to go back the next day to pay. To be avoided.

“Absolutely marvellous!”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

The Jetty 1905 is probably the best place to eat in Swakopmund. The fish is always fresh and cooked perfectly. The sushi is very good as well. Well priced, good wine list, and always full of people! Make sure you book your table in advance!

“Valentines Dinner”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

My wife and I reserved a lovely table at this special restaurant with its totally awesome location. We arrived and were shown to our lovely table right at the window with the waves swirling beneath us. Even the seagulls roost on the water and it's a delight to watch them bobbing around the pier. Again the service was not up to par and bore the typical Namibian style which is ...drinks order taken then wait...then they are delivered ,..then wait, wait, wait then place your meal order...We selected the oryx fillet and the pork schnitzel. It was nice but rather bland and could have been better presented ..especially as it was Valentine's Day and some menu effort would have gone a long way. What really made us uncomfortable was the wait that other patrons around us had to endure - just totally unacceptable. This restaurant has probably one of the finest setting that any eatery could ask for, yet they don't seem to capitalise on this privilege...
