Where does one get frozen oysters as fresh oysters?? That’s all I’m asking, one can’t give frozen oysters as fresh ones. Other than that not a too bad place.

If you have Kids - don't go there. The jumping castle is dirty and the kids will return with more saws and sand than if you go to the beach. The service was up to standard, but the food was OK. We moved inside, after the wind started up and then inside was crammy and the kids didn't like it.

I you are wanting a safe seafood dinner, this place is fine. Part of a South African chain, as other reviewers have mentioned, and probably identical menus throughout the subcontinent. Prawns, calamari and linefish in almost every combination, pleasingly served in a fry pan. Reasonable prices, but if you want crayfish it can go up to US$30 or more. Good service, not exciting but nothing to complain about. Can nearly always get a place when the fancy restaurants are booked out. Used to be sited on the seafront at the lamented demolished Strand Hotel, now on a corner at the back end of town.

This is a chain seafood restaurant. Although when you enter you are in a building that doesn't look anything like a chain, as soon as you see the menu you know you are. Nearly everything on the menu is batter friend. Lots of variations of this with prawns, or that with calamari. The quality was just average.

The atmosphere was referred to as "the chuckie cheese of seafood". It turned out that some kind of team came in shortly after we were seated and they were really loud.

If you're looking for a pretty american seafood restaurant when your're in Swakopmund this one will do it for you. But there are definitely better alternatives.
