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, Lamb Shank 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.
Excellent wine list!
Good views of sea from the majority of tables. The food was good, although I didnt like the taste of my starter which was breaded mussels. The rest of the meal was good and the wine was excellent.
Lovely table overlooking the ocean added to the atmosphere of the evening. Excellent fish, good wine selection and overall good service.
Beautiful location. Professional staff, wonderful service and food. Thank you.
Fantastic meal and atmosphere. Thank you.
Very enjoyable meal and restaurant.
Great! Second Evening there, it has been a pleasure
Amazing Staff and amazing seafood. RACCOMENDED!
Wonderful atmosphere! A bit rustic like on a tug. We took a drink at the cozy bar and enjoyed talking and having fun with the staff. After that we got our reserved table (exactly the one I tried to reserve!) and had a memorable evening with fantastic meals, Drinks and superb Service. My wife tried meat, me some fish - both were absolutely delicious. If you are somewhere in the middle of the room it's of course a bit loud, but that's not too bad. We're looking forward to our next evening in The Tug. For those who can't decide between the "typical two" in Swakopmund: This one is more rustic, cozy and "special", the "other one around the corner" is a bit more noble. Both offer a superb seaview, great meals and perfect service!
ristorante carino e caratteristico, pesce troppo pasticciato!
It was nice to go to a restaurant during our trip in Namibia. Location is nice but you have to be lucky to have a table with sea view. Decoration was nice. It is a very busy restaurant because all tourist come and have their dinner here. This makes the resaurant somewhat crowdy. The different dishes were ready in 5-10 min, which is good if you are really hungry but we got the feeling that we had to leave asap so the next clients could have our table. In general, food was OKbut atmosphere was not relaxing.
excellent food in a cozy atmosphere. Honest price /Performance
We had a fabulous birthday dinner at the Tug. The food was delicious and the service was great. The selection of dishes and drinks was wonderful as was the ambiance of the restaurant. What a great spot!
Sehr schöne Atmosphäre, super Service. Das Essen exzellent. Nicht billig für Namibia aber absolut seinen Preis wert
everything perfect see you again sept 4!
Excellent food, good service and attention. My grouo enjoyed it very much
We had a very disappointing experience at the Tug. Our high expectations considering the high prices weren't met at all. Our seafood and fish was almost cold when served, and the taste was disappointing. The waitress' service was slow and all but motivated, and she didn't even ask if we enjoyed our food. Furthermore, we were freezing inside the restaurant. Won't book again.
Perfect table overlooking the sunset for a special occasion. Thank you so much for doing this. Fish is superb - especially the John Dory! Great service too. Thank you!
Very good restaurant, a must stop in Swakopmund!
A very nice location, but a little bit noisy - i guese the table was not in the most comfortable place in the restaurant. The price was good fair considering the quality. The fish were well cooked but not as tasty as expected. A quantity was very satisfying.
Leckeres Essen und schönes Ambiente.
