Located in the old lighthouse, this is a wonderful spot in Swakopmund. Italian cuisine With an African touch as not all ingredients can be obtained in Namibia, and that sometimes takes a bit of improvising. Special treat was the Namibian wine.

The restaurant and its menu seem authentically Italian, and it's a quaint but charming atmosphere, though we did not actually sit in or atop the lighthouse like I had imagined. It was surprisingly difficult accessing this restaurant in our car, perhaps because of the direction...More
