The Tug, a beachfront restaurant, is built around the original "Danie Hugo" Tug Boat in a setting with panoramic ocean views.

Seating is available both indoors and outdoors on our terrace overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and the historic Swakopmund Jetty.

Overall good, but service is a bit too fast (but I think this might be a cultural difference).

It 's always a treat to dine at your place if we can get a reservation. We enjoy the food and service very much... the 'price' for succes is that it is always crowded.

Der Seasalter Sauvignon Blanc war sensationell. Kabeljau, Kingklip, Calamari und Lachstatar mit Ananas und Erdbeeren waren spitze.

We loved dinner at your restaurant and were very pleased with the service. The food was delicious, the meat and fish so fresh. We were sorry, not to choose your restaurant again the day after.. ;-)

Table location good. All wines really expensive. Strange to have peanuts in shell as apitiser. Asked for mayo for chips took ages to arrive as did the bill when we requested that. Mints tasted like toothpaste.

Sehr großes Restaurant, mit fester Esszeit, nach 2 Stunden muss man den Tisch verlassen. Relaxen und genießen ist nur begrenzt möglich. Personal freundlich aber langsam. Essen lecker.

We book a lot of our clients here for Sundowners and Dinner. Service very good and the food is amazing. The Tug is busy, but this gives it the atmosphere that we like. Vibrant and Experiences shared. You better book in advance.
