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.
We got a table in the corner with view to a wall, after asking we got a slighter better table. Our original table was empty the rest of the Evening. Why?? Main focus on big groups, not couples. Food was good , atmosphere bit disappointing.
Excellent food, welcomig service, we had a great time!
All the group was very satisfied with the experience
We were recommended to dine at the Tug by friends who had visited the Tug and also by our tour operator, but being busy I was told to book as soon as we arrived in Swakopmund. However, I booked online from the UK and how glad I am for doing so! Our first night in Swakopmund was made really special by our visit to 5e Tug! Fabulous food, first class friendly service and a wonderful ambience! ....but I must return to the food, excellent quality and perfectly cooked and worthy of a Michelin star! We were so impressed we booked for our second night and the staff were so helpful they managed to get us a table! Come to Swakopmund and you must go to the Tug.....no, come to Namibia and you must go to the Tug......NO......come to Africa and you must go to the Tug!!!!
Very helpful staff. Delicious food. Fab setting.
We were Lucky with our table with direct view on the ocean, food and wine ok, as well as the service by a trainee who did a great job!
Zu lange Wartezeit, bis unser reservierter Tisch frei wurde. Insgesamt war mir das Restaurant zu laut und zu voll.
Great seafood, excellent service, nice ambiance.
Schönes Restaurant, gutes Essen, einwandfreier Service aber im Vergleich mit anderen Restaurant‘s überbewertet
it really deserves the experience, go in advance to enjoy the view. Super recommended
Any time again!
Many thanks to Neville an Greetings to Tomeo. And we will see us again in 2019.👍🏻
Tolle Lage ,sehr entspannte Atmosphäre und leckeres Essen . Im Gegensatz zu ‚The Jetty , wärmere und wesentlich angenehmere Atmosphäre ,da nicht zu laut
Staff were very friendly! Food superb!
Wie beim letzten Mal in angenehmer Atmosphäre (obwohl es sehr voll war) sehr gut gegessen. Hervorragende Weinkarte, empfehlenswert.
EXCELLENT SERVICE •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Wonderful place, situated right by the sea. Very good food for really fair prices. Every dish has its wine recommendation. Extensive wine list with very accurate descriptions. Don‘t be surprised when the sun sets over the ocean and everyone rushes to the windows to take a photo. Looks silly but only few minutes later you‘ll understand.
Truly delicious food, friendly staff and a great atmosphere!!
Had two good meals at the Tug in early august. I particularly recommend a table form two in the wheelhouse at sunset!
Lovely place but little slow ... food decent
Excellent fish restaurant Easy to reserve a table via internet
We had to wait 90 min for our dinner to be served - even for a busy Friday night far too long.
Everything was perfect except maybe the table which was not at the window as mentioned and confirmed in the booking. The food is good and dessert extraordinary. The wine list is also very nice.
