Me and my girl come here a lot. It's the best pizzas in Namibia. Truth. With a slight elevation advantage you get to look over towards the sea, while the old lighthouse looms behind you. There is a super friendly manager guy walking around the...More

Yes, it's very cool to eat in a lighthouse. The location is special; unfortunately, the food is not. Went for dinner and both my partner and I were unimpressed with the meal. Poorly prepared fish with bland sauce. Chewy steak. A server that was attentive...More

Went here for lunch. A combination of pizza, pasta and King clip was ordered between us and there were no disappointments. Good service. Food could have been slightly quicker but not a big issue.

I enjoyed the meal greatly, lunching in the warmness of the Namib sun. I had a plougman's platter which was greatly enjoyable. The lighthouse is a good setting.

I can really recommend this spot for the best pizza (the 22 Degrees South Pizza is a total knockout!) in town. The seafood spaghetti is top notch and the service warm & friendly. It is lovely to sit outside when the weather permits. This restaurant...More

The service is shocking. It took ages for anything to be brought.The food was dreadful. I had tasteless fish served with a few pieces of steamed veggies with absolutely no seasoning, herbs or butter. Yuk! The rest of my families' food was also tasteless and...More
