My husband and i visited this restaurant on a public holiday, and were pleased to find it open. We had some good wine, Ushi, our waiter was fast and professional, our lunch was received quickly. The meal was average, however our dessert, which was the lemon cheese cake and ice cream was absolutely devine.

This restaurant has a brilliant setting. I looked forward to a great family lunch, but was utterly dissapointed by the service and the quality of the food. The waiter managed to get my order wrong...three times! The food was also not at all as delicious as it was presented, and for the quality you get - it is way overpriced.... More

We decided on a late lunch and went to this restaurant. The place was busy, the service was poor and we waited forever for our food and drinks. My daughter's expensive bowl of chips was okay, my son's calamari was good, my wife's chicken "mole" burger was fair, but my steak cheese and egg burger was a total disappointment, the... More

Sea view, opposite the museum, but the food isn't very good. The best thing about this cafe are the toilets.

Attached to the beautiful Strand hotel in Swakopmund, the Strand cafe is a great option for an ocean side meal. Reasonably priced, excellent service and top quality food. Try the fresh oysters!

The service isn't spectacular but nowhere in Swakop is really. But the food is pretty good and good value for money. It's also got a sea view and is right next to the beach.

We waited aimlessly for at least 15 minutes before asking another family to share their table. Only after we were seated did the waiter notice us!! We waited another 20 minutes to get a drink and the food order took another 30 minutes! The food was delicious and excellent value for money, the location is great, its just the service... More

Intended having a light lunch at the Cafe having visited here 5 years ago. I walked up the steps where there was a sign stuck on A palm tree advising patrons to wait to be seated which I duly did. There were several tables open and two waitresses clearing tables within in 3 meters of where I was standing. After... More
