This restaurant just didn't work for us. Service was poor. When we got to the restaurant, there were a number of empty tables, but the staff just let us wait at the door. They were all in a room toward the back, hanging out. We finally had to seek them out to get seated. Our server, once we got seated, was fine.

We didn't like the food. My husband had some fish special that was smothered in cheese. My meal was also smothered in a heavy sauce. Perhaps it is the German influence, and these types of dishes might appeal to some, but not to our palate. We went to many other fine restaurants in Swako that didn't suffer from this problem.

Nice little restaurant tucked away opposite the Swakop Hotel & Entertainment Centre, simple menu with tasty food. Good stroganoff and good steaks.

The service is the finest in Swakopmund, professional, graceful, unassuming, polite and friendly. The food is also amazing, fresh fish and tender steaks, however the salad's are quite uninspiring (but then there's not much green salad in Namibia). The prices are very reasonable for the quality and for value for money definately the best in town. The atmosphere is lovely and quiet and stylish, but not at all stuffy.
