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.
all perfect from seating arrangements at glass corner facing the ocean to the service and above all the excellent food.
About the food, it is a matter of choosing well... prefer seafood and fish...
We had a lovely early evening dinner there. We enjoyed the Seafood Platter for 2.
Great wine list atmosphere and food. Will tell it to everyone!!
Lovely food in a beautiful location
The food was great had the sea food curry. The decadent chocolate with mollten center was the best
The starter was very good, nut the mail was disepointing.
Excellent restaurant. So pleased we had booked in advance. Great location, excellent food and service and friendly staff.
Great restaurant in a perfect location. Eating here is a must when visiting Swakopmund!
Very good food but had to wait over an hour between starters and Mains being served. Kitchen was obviously over committed and no feedback was forthcoming on when meal would be served during our wait. Very disappointed as we had visited this restaurant for our 25th wedding anniversary 8 years ago and had a lovely meal with good service.
Clients of us Fischreiher Guesthouse rate The Tug Restaurant and service very positive. Small things like helping clients to choose a whine make a big difference,
Just perfect thank you
Not the best table
Super gutes Essen in wunderschönem Ambiente!!
La nourriture était très bonne mais malheureusement les plats étaient tous presque froids!!! On l'a signalé au serveur, mais cela ne l'a pas fait réagir plus que ça!!!
Good friendly service an enjoyable meal and well worth a visit
Bestes Restaurant im Ort!
Excellent food Excellent service Congratulations
Excellent evening, best meal we had in Namibia
Really disappointed. Meals over priced and small. Just sort of 400ND for 4 lobster tails on a cantata. 55ND more corkage than any restaurant in Windhoek or Swakopmund DESPITE buying a bottle from your list too. Of course you have a history and a lovely view. But we can have the view from our suite too. Feel that we've been taken advantage of. Pity. Nothing g to do with the perfect service and pleasant demeanour of Franco. Thank goodness for him.
Everything was wonderful!
Slow service, food reasonable but not as refined as expected. Noisy guests alongside. Overall just a bit disappointing.
I have been to the Tug for dinner on multiple occasions and have enjoyed my experience. My family was visiting me from America, and i was so excited to bring them to the Tug. Our service was below poor, each wine that we selected was not available and even when I ordered a Sprite it was not available. Our waiter was rarely around and had to call on other wait staff around as we waited for our dinner. While our food was great tasting, the customer service experience is enough to not want me to return. Iunfortunately don't think I will find myself back at the Tug.
