I always go to this restaurant when in Swakopmund. The food is terrific and the staff are very well trained and well presented. I've never had an issue with service - ever! The setting however is still one of the most amazing places to find a restaurant. Unbeatable!

Tables appeared to be laid out for maximum capacity with staff writhing and twisting to move about. Main course arrived before starter. Starter never showed. Wine arrived after food. "Gratinated Kingkilp" turned out to be tough (had it been frozen?) with a thick layer of melted cheese on the top. The rattatouille was the best bit on the plate. My... More

Excellent food but waited 1 1/2 hours for our starters. View is magnificent and good atmosphere. Pricey but worth the wait.

This restaurant is pricey but the food is outstanding. It is a tight space for kids-leave them behind. We had superb tuna and fa fish soup which were both excellent. Expect an expensive candle lit evening but worth the indulgence.

The restaurant serves amazing food, well presented, good portions and it taste amazing!!! I tried the kingklip and prawns skewers... I wish I ordered a second one, not because the portions were small, just because it was fabulous!(no space though!). Chips are also of an amazing quality!!!

We visited Jetty 1905 on a blustery evening, walked up the jetty and then were faced with a queue for our reservation! Not to worry though, as it was because a group of 23 Spaniards had bottle necked things (so despite previous reviews, this restaurant does cater for those large groups touring Namibia). Once seated, we were given the table... More

Was here for the most amazing sunset, the management was super and the waiters very professional. The food was the best in Namibia and would recommend to all how visit Swakopmund.

Lovely setting ( despite having to brace ourselves against the blustery conditions along the pier in the dark), warm welcome inside which is very modern in styles...and then a great meal. Good choice on offer: I had a wonderful seafood soup and then the best seared tuna dish I've ever had. My wife also warmed up on a veg butternut... More

We went to The Tug on our first night and Jetty 1905 on our second night. Our experience at Jetty 1905 was far better. The Tug caters for large groups which Jetty 1905 has decided not to go for. So if you are travelling as a couple or a small group, Jetty 1905 is the one to go for in... More

This has been by far the best restaurant in Namibia, we've been too. Notably the seared tuna was stunning! Also the wine selection is pretty impressive. Prices seemed fair for what you get (and not overly excessive). Hint: Make a reservation at least a day in advance. They seem to have not a very smart seating system as they only... More

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
