The manager of this Restuarant Johann, is incredibly unfriendly and rude. The lovely waiters seem to be afraid of him, which is horrible working conditions. Furthermore, Johann is stuck up and simply rude & would not advise anyone to go there until the manager goes...More

On a Sunday afternoon, it is always nice to have the traditional coffee and cake at this age old restaurant. Local Swakopmunder usually have something small to eat to reload the "batteries" with something sweet to take on the next working week.
