“Brilliant value”
Review of Shearwater Oyster Bar - CLOSED

Shearwater Oyster Bar
Cuisines: Seafood
Restaurant details
Reviewed April 1, 2013

It is not surprising that the oysters are best at a restaurant that's being run by an oyster farm. But they are truly great and the choice is between raw and three kinds of grilled ones. At $4/oyster indulge yourself and eat your fill !
The bar itself is quite sparse but with a nice view and the service is friendly.
Definitely not to be missed when in Luederitz !

Lüderitz, a small port town founded by German immigrants more than a century ago, is famous for its oysters, and the best place to try them is the small cafe at the Oyster Farm within the port. The cafe is very casual, but the oyster selection is good and visitors get a good introduction to oyster aquaculture as they enter the restaurant - this is about as fresh as oysters get. There is a small wine list (Graça, a very crisp and light Chenin Blanc from South Africa pairs well with the bivalves) and a good selection of beer. Prices are good for the freshly shucked oysters as well as several styles of baked oysters. I particularly liked the oysters with lemon, herbs and a bit of Parmesan cheese that were just run under broiler enough to warm them through. The oyster "burger" was also excellent, very reminiscent of a New Orleans po'boy sandwich.

Only needed to walk 5 minutes to the Oyster Bar which is located on the premises of the company that farms them. Best in Southern Africa by a long shot. Usually had them grilled as insides a bit delicate these days to attempt them raw!

WOW WOW .... is all I can say about this place! it does not look like much when you arrive until you get to the top of the stairs and are amazed by the little oyester bar! we had 30 oysters and the kids even tried two! they are the best ever! we then went back the next day again and had more oysters.... I won't admit to the number! they have great grilled oysters with bacon and blue cheese yummy! but not as good as the original raw oyster!
