I couldn't resist to use this well known advertising slogan, simply because it was the first thing that came to my mind when I decided to review this lovely on-the-beach restaurant.

Situated on the southern part (approximately 150m from the world renowned jetty) beach of the beautiful Swakopmund in Namibia, this was probably one the best value-for-money restaurants that I have ever visited throughout Southern Africa. Although it is a so-called self-service restaurant (where you pay for your food which is then delivered to you table by a waiter), the service (at the till) was so good, together with the beautiful scenery, that it didn't take any of the shine away from this family restaurant.

The food was very good (and excellently priced) but we were amazed to find Stellenbosch wine (from South Africa) some more reasonably priced than in Stellenbosch restaurants! The wine list is fairly simple but efficient for any wine lover.

The people were friendly and the sunsets unsurpassed.

If you visit Namibia (and in particular Swakop) and you look for value for money, this is a definite YES!

TIPS:
* This is a beach restaurant and kick off your shoes beforehand.
* Try to secure an outside table or beach chair early for sunset.
* Credit cards are accepted.

8 of us went for a sundowner at Tiger Reef (compulsory when in Swakop!).
Yes, you have to order at the bar and pay there, but that is no different to a lot of pubs, so was a non issue for us.
The service was prompt and smooth.

We were all hungry and decided to eat.
The food was divine! We had a variety of different meals (burgers, fish with wine sauce, steak etc) and they were all perfect and all of us were absolutely amazed by the quality of the service and the food. We had desert as well (ice cream, chocolate brownies, sticky toffee pudding) and OMG they were even better.

But what topped it all was the fact that this amazing food was so affordable.Even from a local point of view, it was truly astonishing.

I go to Tiger Reef each time I am in Swakop. From now on, I will eat there at least once per visit as well and can only recommend it!

You enter this nice place next to the sea but when you want to oder drinks or food you have to stand up from your table, walk to the bar area, order and pay for your drinks, take your table number and go and sit at your table. After 2 min your drinks are delivered. Now for the nice part, if you want more drinks you have to stand up from your table again and walk over to the bar area and follow the process. Same story with food. It is a atmosphere breaker

This was a short walk from our hotel and located right on the beach. It is a little exposed but has some coverage for when it gets a bit cold. It's cafe style where you order at the counter. The counter staff were quite pushy for tips which I found a but intimidating. The waiting staff however were great and the fish and chips was a large portion and very tasty.
