Lovely atmosphere , good food, wine and beer. Friendly staff. The Cray fish is divine, a must have. A good buffet available as well. A place to relax and enjoy some good food

Ver quirky (and dark) place. Friendly staff, very affordable prices and good meals. The portions are massive (Pizza, Steak etc). One of the best dinner sports in Lüderitz, especially on days with life music. Daily buffet also available.

This is the kind of place that gets a lot of traction on tripadvisor due to the likable atmosphere in the restaurant, but unfortunately it doesn't meet the expectations. We took the buffet and found ourselves eating overcooked stuff. We ate in the back side...More
