Me and my friends were sitting at the strand cafe we waited 15 min for service and our table was dirty we asked it to be clean. Our food was great a pork schnitzel but our food came before our drinks. the waiter was friendly and everything but not recomended.

Recently we had a very good lunch at the Strand Cafe, Swakopmund. It was a simple meal (my husband had fresh fish-of-the-day and chips, and I had a huge Greek Salad filled with olives and feta cheese) yet overall beautifully presented and absolutely affordable, including drinks and tips. Service that Saturday was impeccable.

But best of all, we had our little doggie with us and they immediately brought out a bowl filled with water for her, without asking. We were highly impressed. When I mentioned this to the manager he said, "We welcome dogs." Highly impressive as very few restaurants do this.

The Strand Cafe is an outdoor cafe, with a beautiful view of the beach and sea. We always have a lunch there when we are in Swakop: I highly recommend the Strand Cafe as they lived up to their motto, "A great place for a great meal" - it certainly is!!

It was a beautiful day and we felt like something light to eat. Good to note that when it’s not high season in this little village, most of the restaurants are only open at night or over the weekend so we struggled to find a place.

While walking along the beach front we spotted the Strand Cafe. The best choices by far were the fish & chips and the calamari dishes. Our waitress was incredibly friendly although we were warned by locals not to expect too much when it came to service.

I think if you are spending the day on the beach and feel like a quick lunch this is a perfect fit for you.

The restaurant is outdoor close to the beach and a very nice spot to relax. We ordered 2 of the biggest burgers, and the are BIG!!! ( see photo) also the ciabatta with salmon and fries was good.
The couscous with dried tomatoes tasted also very nice.
A nice place for a lunch!
