One can't just add N $50-100 to menu prices because of the stunningly iconic location without following up with service and quality that is befitting and consistent. There is arguably no better seating to be had at any restaurant in Namibia than that which can...More

It's all about the setting and the food's good too. It can be cool on the jetty, so dress accordingly. We had great salads, stir fry, steak sandwiches and a divine chocolate lava cake. We were a big group and the service was fine.

I must say I was really surprised by so many unhappy comments about the staff. My dear friend took me to Jetty 1905 to celebrate our last night of our Namibian trip and we loved everything about that place; especially the staff. From the moment...More

Food is very good but I preferred the nearby Tug where the service is more friendly and less posh. It is not expensive compared to European prices: 2 fish meals,2 desserts,water and coffee for approx 850N $ Reservation is very recommended WiFi not available.

We arrived half an hour earlier, but they gave us the best table of the restaurant. Amazing view, very very good fish and attentive service. Their new restaurant opens in december; The lighthouse, also in Swakopmund

On October 28th Sunset will be at 19:12. Be ready at 18:55. Best spot is on the beach between the restaurant and Hotel. If you have a tripod use it. Bracket your pix. Try the 3 fish 🐟 dinner 🍴

Located on Swakopmund's historical iron Jetty which, after being closed for 10 years was renovated and reopened to the public by The Lighthouse Group on 6 August 2010. Breathtaking views looking back from the Atlantic ocean to land, or out to sea. A varied menu serving seafood dishes, sushi, steaks and more. Perfect for that romantic date or special occasion. A must for every visitor to Swakopmund
