Sea view, opposite the museum, but the food isn't very good. The best thing about this cafe are the toilets.

Attached to the beautiful Strand hotel in Swakopmund, the Strand cafe is a great option for an ocean side meal. Reasonably priced, excellent service and top quality food. Try the fresh oysters!

The service isn't spectacular but nowhere in Swakop is really. But the food is pretty good and good value for money. It's also got a sea view and is right next to the beach.

We waited another 20 minutes to get a drink and the food order took another 30 minutes! The food was delicious and excellent value for money, the location is great, its just the service... More

Intended having a light lunch at the Cafe having visited here 5 years ago. I walked up the steps where there was a sign stuck on A palm tree advising patrons to wait to be seated which I duly did.

I ordered a simple crumbed calamari, which, together with the self made chips were so delicious that they didn't need the dip into the also tasty lemon sauce. The ambience is great - you can enjoy the sea view under palm trees but dress warmly if cloudy. The service fast fast, friendly, witty and humorous. The waiter manager also came... More

This place completely met expectations as a beachside cheap and casual eat. Our waiter was efficient and friendly and quickly recommended the special 'big burger' which is literally the biggest burger we have ever seen. The meat was not the best quality but sufficiently satisfied and the wine was cheap and cheerful.

We went to this Cafe for tea and a sweet treat. Their Bar One Cake was a winner and the Fudge Picasso a tea time heavenly treat. The service was quick.Their restroom was the best ever that I have seen at a restaurant - so clean, modern and beautiful! This was a good experience,
