On our recent visit to Swakopmund we decided to give the Wreck Restaurant a try. And it was simply fabulous. As a matter of fact we booked a second evening and was once again treated to superb food and good vibes. The ambience, the food, the wine... but most extraordinary the staff and waiters. Nothing was too much trouble and... More

You will not find a restaurant with a greater view here. There are huge windows looking out onto the ocean. The staff were super friendly. We had an excellent meal, I cant reccomend the fish curry! Definitely worth a stop!

If you want to taste the most fabulous oysters, try them at the Wreck Restaurant. This is one of two restaurants we ate at in Swakopmund and both were excellent, both in food and staff.

Just such a nice place to have dinner. The food is realy good as well as the service. The location is the best. We always eat there atleast once. You have to book well in advance.

Really enjoy dinner at this restaurant. Food was served quickly and was excellent. Design of the restaurant was contemporary with pictures of shipwrecks lining the walls.

This restaurant is a bit formal and you may need reservations. Because we usually ate dinner around 6pm we were able to eat w/o reservations but it filled up very quickly. The food was good. I'm a vegetarian and there were some options for me.

Amazing food, even better desserts. Decor classy though a bit dated. Service was friendly and helpful. Extensive menu. Best restaurant we've eaten at so far in Namibia.

Might be a very comprehensive menu with a lot in there. But service when we where there was great. Went big and did a three course meal, happy with the service but our table beside us was not that lucky. However, starter amazing. Well timed. Mains, huge portions (fish). But dessert which I only tasted not that great. Sent it... More
