We had a tasty meal at the lighthouse setting in their extra room. Our pasta was very good and the waiter recommended a nice Namibian wine. The service was a bit slow, but gave us more time to socialize with our friends. A very satisfactory night out!

At the Resturant we were served by Shiaa. A very polite young woman who took her time with us . The food was cooked to perfection & came in time. On a chilly night, they had heaters which was well needed!

My friends and I went for dinner at this nicely located restaurant. The overall experience was good. We didn't make a booking but managed to be accommodated. The waitress, Shiwa, provided good service and explained the specials they had. I had goulash and polenta which was not only great value for money, but also delicious. Great experience overall

On the day we went, the waitress informed us that there was a special for the day which was polenta and goulash. I still say ordering it was the best decision because it was so succulent. If you're ever in Swakopmund try this restaurant at... More

the restaurant is ok, food is ok, setting is cozy but of course one would expect a lighthouse ambiente when eating in the lighthouse, but this was not the case

This restaurant is in a beautiful lighthouse. It's a really authentic unpretentious place. It's a lovely peaceful restaurant that serves great pizzas, Very good service and the owner was charming. I think he is Italian. You can park right outside too. Definitely worth a visit when you re in Swakopmund.
