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 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.
Allways again.The welcome was very friendly.The dinner delicious and the service so nice.We booked a table at sea side and got it.We enjoied a beautiful sunset and did feel much impressed.We will come again and can highly reccomment the Tug.
I had a wonderfull evening
Super Atmosphäre bei hervorragenden Speisen und toller Bedienung
Essen, Wein und Service waren hervorragend, der Tisch war ungünstig platziert.
Disappointed with the food. Cooking for quite a few large table numbers. All our fish was dry and over cooked. We were a table of only four.
Great location - very quick and slick service- booking essential!
food, vine and service were excellent; highly recommended! don´t forget to make online reservation some days before - easy via homepage; and then enjoy the evening!
Excellent food and wine. Really enjoyed our dinner. Seafood medley was excellent.
Very good restaurant. We enjoyed it very much.
Good food, service a bit slow, great atmosphere
Leider sehr laut. Mit weng Dämmaterial an der Decke und den Wänden liesse sich der Làrmpegel gut reduzieren
We drove 4 hours from Windhoek and stayed in Swakobmund overnight just to have dinner at The Tug, so it's easy to tell we really like the place.
Our table was booked for 8.30. We arrived and was told to wait in the bar. At 9.05 pm I received a TEXT saying that the table had been changed to 9.00pm. At 9.20 we finally sat down.
Obwohl ich einige Zeit vorher den Tisch online reserviert hatte, saßen wir unmittelbar im Eingangsbereich an eine Art Beistelltisch. Das war leider nicht so schön. Dafür waren der Service und das Essen gut.
We are only in swakopmund for 3 nights. We enjoyed it so much we have booked again tomorrow, Saturday for our last night. Food, service and ambience was great.
Great restaurant just by the jetty. Good atmosphere and great food and service. Would recommend requesting a window table overlooking the sea and jetty
it's always our pleasure to visit your amazing restaurant
Quality of food and service was very good. I booked table many weeks in advance and was not shown to a table until 30mins after reserved time. The table was not in Avery good position close to entrance passageway. I would have expected a good table to be reserved and to be available at the time arranged. It appeared that too many diners were being catered for at the expense of quality of experience.
Great food, OK service mix up at booking in that a table had to be separated to accommodate the booking we made. We were exactly on time of our booking and the table was still not ready and being separated and prepared. Don't put so much emphasis on people having to arrive at preset times (and vacating a table by a certain time) if you are not ready for them or in our case give us the table that was ready but only booked for 7pm. There were other tables completely open and prepared when we arrived at our booked time but we were told we had to wait for them to separate the table we were to sit at, but the other table that was behind where we sat saw no guests till 7pm just before we were to leave, you could of put us there instead of making us stand around like lost tourists in a hurricane while your staff prepped a table that should of been ready at least 15 min prior to our arrival. Nothing I love more than being made to wait due to Namibian perception of time management!
Bester Seafood in einmaliger Umgebung! Absolut empfehlenswert!
Very nice staff and delicious food. The steak was a bit to small but anyway the taste was very good. We also loved the onion burger sauce and the marula salad.
Service, especially welcome desk had an attitude and someone didn't feel welcome. The portions were small, if you compare it with other restaurants in the same category.
Nice location near the ocean with good meals and friendly service
