The location is GREAT but the menu is a bit too complicated if you are in for a quick bite. It was our first night after a long drive and we were famished: the steak was overcooked, the kid burger was tough, the fish was excellent. The plates are covered in food so we wondered how people can order more... More

Excellent location with a beach & sea view, great food and very cosy atmosphere. Make sure you book well in advance through your hotel or lodge.

After a very long trip by plane and a six hour drive through an amazing countryside we arrived at our hotel to have a sundowner on the terrace. Between us and the ocean only the restaurant "the wreck"! So, shower and over to get some food! Greeted by some very friendly staff in a michelin-star atmosphere, we were escorted to... More

The ambiance with a sun set sea view was great and the waiter service is excellent. Treated with chocolates on arrival. Food was served on time and with excellent presentation.

Our best meal by far in Swakopmund. Wish we had tried this restaurant earlier. Can definitely recommend the Chicken and Prawn Curry and the Chocolate Brownie.

Went here for the first time. The view from the restaurant on to the sea is great, and the ambience is lovely. The service is efficient and very friendly. The food is very good. The batter of the tempura prawns didn't taste like real tempura, and the mussel sauce that smothered the steak we found a little overpowering, but overall... More

Simply put, this was one of the best meals I have ever had while travelling. The food was exquisite, the service exceptional and the atmosphere was lovely. The calamari appetiser was the best calamari I've eaten to date. The kingklip mains were fantastic as was the peanut butter ice cream and chocolate brownie dessert. The sunset view while eating was... More
