“THE family restaurant”
Reviewed 5 March 2013

This is the ideal place for parents who want to relax without having to cook for the whole family or spending exorbitant amounts for Take Aways. Prices are good, portions are large, the great variety on the menu caters for young kids, boys with huge appetites and light meals for the not-so-hungry. The relaxing atmosphere with uncomplicated and friendly hosts and staff makes this restaurant a MUST for everybody visiting the coast. Watch the press for popular bands playing on the weekends!

“Nice atmosphere”
Reviewed 5 March 2013

Nice place, my wife liked the inside alot. But dont like the food at all, didnt taste nice and not friendly service. Could be a wonderful restuarant if people were more friendly and if the chefs actually made our dinner better.

“What more do you need.”
Reviewed 28 February 2013

When you come to the Swakopmund make sure you stop by this place, the owners are down to earth good guys that make you feel right at home, the staff is friendly and quick, the food ranges from classical Germanic goodness to pub burgers that will leave any person a satisfied client, the prices of drink and chow are reasonable, which in a town that takes full advantage of the tourist is a breath of fresh air.
