- Comida excelente. - Serviço é lento e desatento aos pedidos. - Não está plenamente preparado para o calor e vento ao mesmo tempo. - Valor dentro dos padrões.

We had a lovely dinner, thank you! The food was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. (The tomato soup was not served with a baguette as indicated on the menu, but we still enjoyed the soup with the bread basket)

We had such a lovely time. First in last out. We absolutely enjoyed the few hours spent wining and dining upstairs. Food as always was lovely. Stunning presentation. We missed the Tug so much. I wish the borders can open so that the parking lot can be full and the place buzzing from early to late.

Fantastic meal at the Tug. We are not huge seafood fans but our steaks were superb. We had an ocean view table which was superb. One of the best experiences of a holiday with many great experiences

Beautiful venue. When making my online booking some few days before my arrival in Swakopmund, I requested a window seat for a romantic sunset view which was duly honoured. This was much appreciated Thank you
