Food was OK, mainly French style, but service was very slow. Restaurant was not full so no excuse for the long delay in receiving our order.

Our first experience with Erichs was so good that we decided to go there again - event though we stayed only for 2 nights in Swakopmund! Try the 'Superior Chicken' - amazing!

Two couples on a Saturday evening. Plates weren't served at the same moment. Had to wait for a part of the ordered vegetables and fries, Service can be better. Food was good.

The food was tasty and well presented. The service was friendly. The only negative was the lack of atmosphere

We had two nights in Swakopmund and enjoyed our first visit for dinner to Erich's so much that we returned for the second night too. Friendly and helpful welcome replicated in service from all staff.

We had a wonderful waitress! That is the best entré for a place I'm going to! Meat prepared to perfection - medium /rare; not an easy one! The starter "mixed caprese" really something new, very tasty! The cheesecake to be shared with hubby... He didn't get anything... For food lovers a place to go!

Very friendly waitress but the food was extremely expensive. We had to pay for every extra like chips, potatoes and vegetables. The price for a small piece of fish was N$165.....thumbs down

This restaurant re-opened very recently (Nov/Dec) under new management and with a new chef. The restaurant has a new fresh look inside, and has much more light as they have put new windows in on one side of the room. The menu has been changed completely; for the main course you can choose from a list of different types of... More

Table not set after it was booked. Tablecloth dirty. Treated with complete disregard! Although food was acceptable, we won't return. Definitely give it a skip!!
