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.

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.

Hurtig og effektiv betjening. Dejlig mad til rimelige priser.
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.
Alles ganz wunderbar, tolles Ambiente direkt am Hafen mit Blick aufs Meer. Super Essen und sehr nette Bedienung.
Awesome as usual
Heel goed eten en bediening
Great evening. Thanks.
good evening, good food, very good service by Kano...
I have taken groups of friends to the Tug many times and never fails to impress. ... I will be returning with another group,in 3 weeks... 5 of whom are returners whom are already looking forward to dining there... thank you all at the Tug
Super dining experience
So many thanks for my wallet that i forgot in your restaurant yesterday night. Pierre
All was great! If I had something to say...the plates come a little bit too quickly. But for the rest, PERFECT!
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.
Great food, great service, special environment. Super catch oh of the day.
Great food and amazing service. Had a great time and special touches on the desert for the birthdays were very special. Great job Ludwig.
If you book early, you could be spoilt with a window table and admire a glorious sunset! Luv EVERYTHING about this place, BUT...the staff is impeccable EVERYTHING. LOVE them!
Excellent food and perfect service in a wonderful atmosphere. Great!!!
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.
The most wonderful evening! Exquisite food and service to match! Couldn’t recommend highly enough! The best restaurant in Swakopmund. Thank you!
Der Service war super gut, das Essen fantastisch. Wir haben uns rundum wohl gefühlt und können das Tug nur weiterempfehlen. Das Beste Restaurant in Swakopmund!
Our waiter was very nice and always there in the right moment. Meat and Fish was fried to the right minute being very delicious.
Schade, das der Tisch bei frühem eintreffen um 9 uhr verlassen werden muss.
So happy we chose The Tug!! the food, drink, and setting was amazing. Enough cannot be said about our server, Stanley, he was so kind! One of the highlights of our trip
