Waitress approached us for our order without bringing a menu. When I asked for a menu, the waitress barked at me that I could go and look at it inside. Ordered hake, which was delicious and came promptly:

Had dinner here a couple of times. Overlooks the jetty. Seating inside and out. Need to book to be sure of a table. Great food. I had kapeljou lightly pan-fried and the hake was delicious too. They come with various forms of sauce and accompaniments....More

Usual menu of fried seafood that you find in Walvis Bay / Swakopmund. A casual type of place, but at tourist prices ($150-200). Calamari is the speciality here, and at $110 is an average price for this dish in the area. Comes thick cut, seasoned...More
