Lovely venue and friendly staff, but sadly the fish was badly overcooked. Prawns so dry the shells couldn't be peeled off! But the mussels were superb.

We had dinner after the sun had gone down, which minimizes the impact of the ocean right outside the windows. However, the food was excellent, and the service very good. A bit expensive, but worth the effort.

This was the best food that I had on our entire trip throughout Southern Africa. The staff was very professional and friendly. I would love to eat here every night. Make reservations!

On October 28th Sunset will be at 19:12. Be ready at 18:55. Best spot is on the beach between the restaurant and Hotel. If you have a tripod use it. Bracket your pix. Try the 3 fish 🐟 dinner 🍴

Located on Swakopmund's historical iron Jetty which, after being closed for 10 years was renovated and reopened to the public by The Lighthouse Group on 6 August 2010. 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
