Shoopala was a great waiter, it is refreshing to have good service in Namibia. The Jetty was never my favourite restaurant in Swakop, but I can see a big change in management, staff and the cuisine. Thanks for the great experience.

This must be one of the most picturesque settings for a restaurant anywhere in the world! Walk the jetty to your table, and enjoy superb and friendly service with a lovely meal. We loved our table, and our waiter was attentive and super efficient. We enjoyed a near perfect seared tuna, and an excellent mussel pot. I would highly recommend... More

The restaurant is situated at the end of an old jetty, that was restorated some decades ago. So you can see the sea under you and it feels like being on a ship. The meals were excellent, especially the sushi: nice and fresh. Same goes for the seafood platter. This is a really good choice for dining and eating fish... More

I had some of the best sole in years during our visit. Some of our party were not quite satisfied with their meat but their complaints were dealt with professionally. The view during the day and night are fantastic and adds to the experience. Often times the food doesn't match the view but here they get it right

Arrived in Swakopmund in the evening after a long drive and walked towards the old jetty. Decided to stop for a drink only, but decided then to stay for dinner! Best decision ever! The dinner was fabulous and the location is exceptional.

If you like seafood and a beautiful sunset, then this place will not dissapoint. The scenic walk over the jetty to the restaurant at the end, with the cool sea breeze and sea gulls swaying in the wind makes this venue a unique one. The food is a bit pricy, but the view makes definitely makes up for it.

We came to this restaurant by accident, but we saw the please and stayed for dinner. Glad they had 1 table left for us on a Sunday evening. Warm welcome, friendly staff, excellent food and sushi, good choice of wine, great view, not very expensive. This is an excellent place to eat - not only seafood, also meat.

We dined here at lunch on our first day in town. The views are stunning! The menu was varied. Be aware that servings are very large. Presentation of food was very nice. Service was nice. The soups were good. Baked oysters were nice. Calamari had a crumb layer a bit too thick for our tastes.

It was a dark and stormy night... the walk out to the restaurant is wonderful and bracing. We hadn't made a reservation and were told by our hotel that they were fully booked, as usual. But we tried and got lucky. Very friendly service, from the moment we arrived. Great food and wine and wonderful atmosphere.

This restaurant is popular for its incredible location at the end of a very long jetty and the history of this feat of engineering which was built over 100 years ago. We enjoyed part of our meal such as the fresh oysters and sushi but not the pre-frozen sole which was overly blackened and not what we had hoped for.... More

Located on Swakopmund's historical iron Jetty which, after being closed for 10 years was renovated and reopened to the public by The Lighthouse Group on 6 August 2010. Breathtaking views looking back from the Atlantic ocean to land, or out to sea. A varied menu serving seafood dishes, sushi, steaks and more. Perfect for that romantic date or special occasion. A must for every visitor to Swakopmund
