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

We have been to The Tug before on our last trip 3 years ago. It has still the stunning view. But the meals are not so good as before. The seafood soup has more paprika than fish . In the fish extravaganza is no crayfish anymore.

Another wonderful dinner at the Tug, and thank you very much for the lovely table by the window. The food was superb and the wine delicious. As before, we were particularly impressed by the wide variety of lovely dishes and wines the impeccable service. One asterix missing for atmosphere because of the high noise level in the restaurant. We will be back!

Das Diner, die Location war wunderbar und sehr schön. Die Einrichtung mit den verschiedenen Bereichen ausgezeichnet. Der Service ausgezeichnet und sehr aufmerksam. Wir waren zu zweit in einem grösseren Bereich platziert, wo es rund herum viele Gruppen hatte. Dies hatte in der Folge einen negativen Touch, da es zu laut war und die Ambiente für ein Tête à Tête zu laut war. Vielleicht kann man da, bei der Platzierung etwas Rücksicht nehmen, denn wir hatten im Voraus bereits reserviert. JP :=)

Spoilt by poor service. Two wine choices unavailable, the only a problem with a table next door, and then the waiter demanding a tip!!!

We were two times in your restaurant last 4 years during our holidays and this year we would like to return one more time. When I booked from Switzerland 10 days before the lunch, I asked to have a table near the window for the view. Unfortunately, we receive a small table behind a wall and without any view. I can't be satisfied with this. Next time I will travel in Swakopmund, I think that I will choose another restaurant.

The bar staff and wait staff made us feel at home and took such good care of us. We enjoyed sitting at the Captains Bar before our meal and the cocktails were delicious! Our food and wine were superb as well! Truly wonderful experience.

I had the mussels and coconut hake and whilst the sauces were nice both dishes were incredibly dry. We were tea disappointed as we had heard such good things. Service was lovely though.

Sogar ohne Reservierung haben wir auch noch am nächsten Tag ein weiteres Mal im Tug gegessen und mit Freunden den Abend verbracht, da das Personal flexibel und geschäftstüchtig Möglichkeiten aufgetan hat. Hervorragend!!!
