We had a superb dinner at the Tug and were very lucky to have one of the nicest tables with the best view right by the window overlooking the sea. Our meal was excellent.

My husband and I loved this restaurant and hope to return next year. My husband had the lamb shank entree (amazing) and Namibian oysters (super fresh and delicious) and I had the fresh fish (wonderful) and the prawn with cheese and focaccia appetizer (great). The cocktail list was so impressive we didn’t even order wine. The service was perfect. It was a glorious day overlooking the ocean and the sunset and we highly recommend this establishment.

Well located and easy to access. Impressive wine list. Food very good and oysters were delicious. However place is full of tourists and very noisy. Waiters were stressed that night, which in return stressed us too, and I ordered Kingklip but got clearly something else, probably cod without being told Kingklip was not available. A pitty... We are unlikely to return because of all this, as there are other choices in Town.
