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.

Was very special to go back here after a 14yr gap. Food and service just as I remembered and a view to die for! A great evening. Keep up the good work.
The Tug is sailing in the wrong direction. Much better before!
The noise in the bigger rooms, is sometimes very loud!
After previously good experiences arather disappointing evening starting with being given a table where the light was out and offered a candle.The waiter was then very pushy.No oysters.A feeling that we were being rushed.Staff stacking chairs at 9.45
Very good fish and meat. Big choice of good wines. Nice setting on the beach
Obe of the guessts had been strange... the restaurant was outstanding!!!! Just perfect
Service to get drinks was very slow.
We really enjoyed the evening, excellent service and food delicious, with a good view over the water and pier! Nice to see such good restaurants exist, and our company commented on this. Namibia has a lot to offer, and also many negatives, but all in all a really good destination!
one of the best in Swakop
Would have been happy if you had paid more attention to our needs and requests!
Great place to dine at.
I was very excited for my family’s visit to the Tug after 10 days camping in the desert. Unfortunately the “courtesy bus” was 30 minutes late so when we arrived we were tucked away in the furthest back corner with no view and and light. The food was good and the service very friendly not the location and time to rectify issues was disappointing
We had a great time, the food came fast and it tasted very fresh and good! Service was good and very friendly but sometimes it was a bit difficult to get noticed by the waiter. The atmosphere is nice but a bit crowded, tables stand quite close. Besides that, completely recommendable. We´ll come back soon!
We had a lovely evening at the Tug. Thank you.
I booked a table for my wife's birthday during our trip around Namibia. We were really well looked after and seated a prime table with an excellent view. The seafood dishes we had were 1st class and my wife was treated to a rendition of happy birthday with dessert! A really memorable meal - many thanks!
Absolutely incredible food, amazing view, and very friendly and accommodating staff. International standard.
Stanley was brilliant. Very efficient and friendly. It was a pleasure to be served by him. The food was great and we wouldn’t have changed anything. Well done,
Excelent food and service.
Dear Roswitha and Tug Team This was by far the BEST Christmas Lunch we've had in a very long time (even without the traditional fare). The service was impeccable - Edward our waiter was simply the BEST. The food was WORTH EVERY DOLLAR. A well-deserved 5star rating. Thank you! Wishing you all a Prosperous 2019.
Cucina eccellente in un ambiente caratteristico con servizio attento e cortese

Excellent food, drinks and service. Beautiful view. We will definitely visit every time we are in Swakopmund!
