one of the best in Swakop
Would have been happy if you had paid more attention to our needs and requests!
Great place to dine at.
I was very excited for my family’s visit to the Tug after 10 days camping in the desert. Unfortunately the “courtesy bus” was 30 minutes late so when we arrived we were tucked away in the furthest back corner with no view and and light. The food was good and the service very friendly not the location and time to rectify issues was disappointing
We had a great time, the food came fast and it tasted very fresh and good! Service was good and very friendly but sometimes it was a bit difficult to get noticed by the waiter. The atmosphere is nice but a bit crowded, tables stand quite close. Besides that, completely recommendable. We´ll come back soon!
We had a lovely evening at the Tug. Thank you.
I booked a table for my wife's birthday during our trip around Namibia. We were really well looked after and seated a prime table with an excellent view. The seafood dishes we had were 1st class and my wife was treated to a rendition of happy birthday with dessert! A really memorable meal - many thanks!
Absolutely incredible food, amazing view, and very friendly and accommodating staff. International standard.
Stanley was brilliant. Very efficient and friendly. It was a pleasure to be served by him. The food was great and we wouldn’t have changed anything. Well done,
Excelent food and service.
Dear Roswitha and Tug Team This was by far the BEST Christmas Lunch we've had in a very long time (even without the traditional fare). The service was impeccable - Edward our waiter was simply the BEST. The food was WORTH EVERY DOLLAR. A well-deserved 5star rating. Thank you! Wishing you all a Prosperous 2019.
Cucina eccellente in un ambiente caratteristico con servizio attento e cortese
Your service was brilliant I will always recommend this restaurant The food was outstanding. The waitress was professional We hear some bad reviews but this was rubbish. Well done
We just love the Tug
Excellent food, drinks and service. Beautiful view. We will definitely visit every time we are in Swakopmund!
The service was not as what we expected. We waited a very long time for our food while others around us who ordered after us got their food much faster. Even when asking, the service could not give us appropriate explanation or even a real excuse. Maybe this was just bad luck since the other tables seemed to have quite a good service. However, the food was very good.
Excellent Christmas lunch
Sehr leckere Fischgerichte, insbesondere der Salat mit Fisch, gibt es als Vor- oder Hauptspeise, ist zu empfehlen.
The service and food was incredible!
The Tug is by far the best restaurant in Swakopmund. Always a pleasure and a real treat. Thank you Brett and team.
Great, as always...
Grilled calamari was so fresh and tasty! Menu was great but a lot of fried options vs healthier.
Great location, atmosphere and food. Booking ahead recommended. Service on our visit was slow. Although they responded well to dealing with a food intolerance it took a couple of attempts to get it sorted.
It was a great evening and excellent dinner in a wonderful atmosphere.
