About The Tug Restaurant
The Tug, a beachfront restaurant, is built around the original "Danie Hugo" Tug Boat in a setting with panoramic ocean views. Popular amongst both tourists and locals it has a reputation for providing meals prepared with fresh Namibian sourced products in a setting which creates an unforgettable ambience. Seating is available both indoors and outdoors on our terrace overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and the historic Swakopmund Jetty.
The Tug offers authentically prepared cocktails, a selection of more than 140 South African wines, Spanish wines and French Champagne. Special delights from the Namibian ocean include wild caught West Coast Rock Lobster (seasonal), Kingklip, Kabeljou, Angel, Sole, Hake, Monk and John Dory as well as locally cultivated Oysters and fresh green seasonal Swakopmund Asparagus. For the carnivore there are tasty cuts of Beef, Lamb Shank and grilled Oryx steak. Our Head Chef recommends the home-made Chocolate Fondant, Ebony & Ivory mousse or a wide selection of home-made ice creams.
We had to wait 90 min for our dinner to be served - even for a busy Friday night far too long.
Everything was perfect except maybe the table which was not at the window as mentioned and confirmed in the booking. The food is good and dessert extraordinary. The wine list is also very nice.
A wonderful evening with great food and perfect service. Thank you.
If you go to Swakopmund you can’t miss it!!!
very kind welcome from friendly staff
Nous avons beaucoup apprécié notre repas dans ce restaurant ainsi que la gentillesse du personnel. Magnifique vue au coucher de soleil dans un cadre très original.
Mangiato e b Vito bene tuttavia il prezzo e nettamente sopra la media di locali simili in Namibia
A beautiful place to eat with a delicious menu
Gute Qualität beim Essen und der Weinauswahl, tolle Lage am Meer mit bestem Blick zum Sonnenuntergang und sehr zuvorkommender Service.
Top notch - book ahead
Definitely one of the best places to eat in Swakopmund
Un posto molto carino dove si reca la gioventà namibiana e non solo i turisti. Cibo nello standard namibiano, ostriche fantastiche. Servizio ottimo anche se un po' lento. Il locale era pieno e un po' di lentezza nel servizio ci sta. Prezzo in linea con il cibo servito
Good Food. Price was also ok.
Food is good, maybe the best table we did in Namibia, unfortunately we are disappointed. We arrived at 6:30pm, got the starter very sooner and wait two hours to get the main dishes, not correct for this kind of restaurant with this standing! The reason given: there was a group to manage before....what! I do not really care obviously with two kids....they could have at least offer the two first drinks.....
Great atmosphere, we had a wonderful evening up on the top deck.
Perfect service. But make portioneren smaller and the price ad well.
Everything was perfect!
This was the first time at the Tug, service and atmosphere are perfect but there was no Sprite-drink anymore and also IceTea and a few menu items, and at 17:15 so that's is why a give a 3 star for food&drinks. It's a very nice restaurant anyway 👍🏼
Great restaurant, great service, excellent food!
Good food, good service and price, considering even the great atmosphere of the location.
Wir hatten ein wunderbares Essen auf der Terrasse. Jederzeit wieder gerne.
We arrived on time for our reservation (which I did online 2 weeks before) and the reception and service was swift and efficient. We had a great table and gave our children a quick background of the restaurant. They insisted to see parts of the Tug for themselves and thoroughly enjoyed it. The wine list was great, and the food exceptional. The presentation of each dish was done with passion and detail. And each plate was a masterpiece. We had an amazing meals and celebration of our holiday and precious time together. And it all was capped off by a beautiful and delicious dessert & coffee. We always speak highly of The Tug and will continue to recommend the restaurant to friends and family. It is a MUST stop when you are in Swakopmund.
A warm ambiance befitting the excellent service & scrumptious food received!
all perfect from seating arrangements at glass corner facing the ocean to the service and above all the excellent food.
About the food, it is a matter of choosing well... prefer seafood and fish...
