Lovely restaurant, really nice pizza ( I had Mexican) great food and good to see the pizza being made by hand and cooked in the big pizza oven. I couldn't finish mine so we boxed it up for lunch the next day. Really friendly staff and great service.

We booked ahead (a must!) and asked if bringing our young baby in a pram would be ok. A table out of the way with space readied for the pram was prepared when we got there. The restaurant was a-buzz and we ordered the gluhwein which was hot and spicy as well as 2 excellent, wood-fired, freshly rolled thin base... More

We had dinner here and look no further than their pizzas cooked in a wood oven the are really excellent the toppings generous and a very enjoyable atmosphere. Make sure you book as they are very busy most nights as they also do takeaways.

My friends and I visited this place on Friday night and it was so wonderful! The gluhwein was extra spicy and hot. Their pizzas are so delicious!

We stumbled across this place by chance on our last night in Swakopmund. Two excellent pizzas and a bottle of red at reasonable prices. Good service. The interior is informal,- an add-on to a guest house? But it was intimate and, most of all, the pizzas were great.
