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.
It was a wonderful evening and Sonja our waitor was perfect. Dinner was delicious and our table beautiful near the Ocean.
Great place! Thanks.
Overall the restaurant was fine. The food was decent but the restaurant denied us to cut a cake for a friends birthday unless we bought extra deserts. We were a group of 13 people and it felt like they just wanted us to spend more and not enjoy the experience.
Great athmosphere and food, but also quite expensive for Namibia.
Great restaurant, I would highly recommend visiting the TUG!
It was a superb experience. Thanks for the good service and excellent atmosphere.
Great place to have seafood for dinner! Meat also isn't bad! Excellent service! Always happy!
food was nice, service was perfect (Abigail) 😁👍🏼
My favourite and best restaurant in Namibia! There is no one like this.
The Group Totally loved their experience and want more yumminess!
The restaurant has become extremely expensive. It seems like that you only want tourist to come to your place and no locals because us local can hardly afford those prices. The way the Menu is set up now is very confusing. Either include side for all meals or exclude them for all. some are and some are not makes thinks way to complicated since us local must also think of the bill at the end of the evening.
Our waitress Sophia was amazing and made our time very special!
Wine list unreasonably expensive. Steaks are very average and bland.
In total a great experience with perfect food. Unfortunately our waiter was not very attentive and even brought the wrong food. The visit before was perfect though.
Very fresh seafood and helpful service. Might be a little noisy...
Another wonderful experience!
Everything was perfect. Loved the garlic prawns in cheese and the namaklava dessert.
Maten var mycket god och vår servitris var mycket trevlig. Men vi blev störda av personal som frågade hur vi hade det. Utöver servitrisen var det ytterligare tre personer som ville ha våra synpunkter
We visited the restaurant this february. The staff are very nice and the restaurant has a great location. However we went there to eat fresh fish. We are in the coastal zone, so we think it is a legitimate expectation. Instead of that we ate frozen fish and we pay a lot. I think that when a restaurant wants to stand for his quality, there are some requirements that they should fulfill.
I have the privilege of dining at the best restaurants anywhere in the world through my travels. My dining experience at the Tug was exceptional. The efficient and charming staff, the food, excellent wine available by the glass, the location .....and the sunset combined to make it a truly memorable night. Thank you.
