It was my second visit and it remains one of the best pizzas in Swakopmund. It is quiet and intimate and the food is excellent. Recommended for a quiet night out.

Family run bistro with a menu that offers something for everyone. The pizza was freshly made in a traditional pizza oven. Good selection of wine too. Service was excellent. It can be busy as it's a small restaurant so book to avoid disappointment.

Secret Garden is a nice place, atmosphere is good. The pizza is prepared in a traditional way until the point they add a bulldozer of cheese, which in my case pushed all the other flavours to the background. Not my taste.
