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.

Very great food. Lovely view over the jetty and very freindly staff. A place where you have to eat when you stay at Swakopmund
We were visiting from the UK and both love seafood. We found the Tug was excellent. The Tug seafood platter was really good - the local fish and squid was the best we’d had!
It was a pleasure having dinner in your amazing Restaurant. We very much enjoyed our evening in this romantic atmosphere - thank you very much!
Servicd was somewhat slow, hence only 4 stars
Best restaurant of Namibia!
The best restaurant in Swacopmund
Wonderful food and excellent service, so good we visited twice!
Perfect organization. Very nice location with Ozean view.
Alles war wirklich gut!! Insbesondere das Schokoladenmousse;) Und gefreut haben wir uns auch über das sehr gut funktionierende WLAN. Aber das nur am Rande.. Und obwohl ich bereits ein halbes Jahr vorher per Mail reserviert hatte, lief alles reibungslos. Gute Organisation. Essen lecker.
Posto molto caratteristico, un po’ rumoroso ma nel complesso una piacevole esperiamo con un servizio decisamente cortese e cibo di buon livello.
Great service from Simpson.
Fantastic place, good food&wine, great people! Hope to come back one day!
Very efficient and friendly team.
Service, food and location was exceptional. Cannot rate the restaurant highly enough. Have brought small groups previously and will continue to do so in the future.
Essen, Getränke und Service sind sehr gut. Leider hatten wir einen Tisch mitten im Raum - dadurch war es recht unruhig und laut.
Still the number one restaurant in Swakopmund
We were 2 families and had a wonderful meal! Food was delicious! Wine was great and service was really good! Stanislau helped us and he was really attentive! Thank you for a great evening
Very nice restaurant on the Swakopmund sea front. Delicious food and extremely good service, our waiter Marius was awesome. Also very nice and efficient booking system.
It was a nice evening as always. The light above our table was not working and we had Ronald for a candle. This could have been sorted out before we arrived.
Everything is amazing:)
Great service from Collin and fantastic table - thank you!
Fantastic venue with great food and service, what more can one ask for!
I booked a table many months prior to our visit and as a request asked for a table with a view. I am delighted to say we had a table with a fantastic view - thank you. Furthermore the food was gorgeous (fillet steak) and the service outstanding.
The online reservation is quick and simple. We got a table at the windows, so we can enjoy the atmosphere during the sunset . The food was incredible good and the service excellent. Thank you for this great evening.
