As a last minute decision, due to other restaurants being full, we entered the Western Saloon.... as you cross the line into the restaurant you are transported back about 60 years in time. Everyone looks at you, you hear music you thought had been forgotten and the decor is Germany 50 years ago. The service was acceptable and the menu... More

The food, however, is a blend of African and German cuisine. Service was friendly. Servings are very large so you can probably share plates. The avocado ala ritz appetizer was a half avocado loaded with tiny baby shrimp with a dressing reminiscent of thousand island dressing. A small dish of German salad came out between starters and mains. My beef... More

The Western Saloon seems to have been going for quite a few years and has been decorated in an American "Cowboys and Indians" style. It is a small restaurant with fewer than 10 tables and has an extensive bar. The menu is basically German cuisine but there are a variety of steaks and fish dishes as well. The food in... More

We just happened to find this restaurant as we were walking around Swakopmund. We did wonder if we had done the right thing as it was obviously a German orientated restaurant and we were the only British couple in the place. The menu was comprehensive but did contain a lot of German dishes. We could not fault the pepper steak... More

First night in Swakopmund and this restaurant is hopefully a taste of things to come. Fish cooked to melt-in-your-mouth perfection.

I was surprised at the traditional German food in the Western Saloon and even more surprised at the quality of the food. Every dish was delicious, the service was friendly and fast, while the setting was cozy and right in the centre of town.

A small restaurant with friendly staff and good service. The Oysters are amazing- so fresh and tasty. Good beer on tap also.

Most important for tourists and those from out-of-town: The pizza side of the restaurant is on the right. And they do not open until 5:00pm on weekdays (not sure about weekends). The only place we have found that uses real dough (instead of pre-made discs that look like a glorified pita), fresh ingredients and cooked in a stone oven. And... More

There are a number of restaurants in Swakopmund which serve good food, but a common complaint is that service is extremely slow. The Western Saloon served up a great meal for 3 of us (Starters and main course) at a very reasonable price, and the service was impeccable - perhaps because the owner took personal responsibility. The menu had all... More
