Excellent food, centrally located, decent service. But what a gloomy and dark atmosphere!! It has this “Cold-War-East-German-interrogation-basement-chic” quality about the colours and the lighting. Choices must be made: cuisine or setting?

All the hype of making reservations for dinner?! Upon ordering the "sole"... the waiter instead of asking me which "sole" dish I would like since they had 2 which I did not notice being on different pages... he just picked one for me!

The food is good plain high quality pub standard. The service is good but it's all a bit too crowded and the decor is not the place for a romantic date. You'll eat well and the bill is not high but it lacks atmosphere.

Both the seafood and game dishes had very creative preparations. Food was excellent though the salad bar had a limited selection.

We had dinner during our holiday in Swakopmund. Sadly our expectations were not met. Cordon Bleu – not seasoned and no ham inside Kingklip – small portion for high price Eisbein & Sauerkraut – Sauerkraut tastes like coming out of tin Ravioli – only 3 raviolis as a main course

The food is good, especially the fish, but the restaurant has a really old-fashioned feel to it. Excellent desserts.

We visited Erich's last year and thoroughly enjoyed it so had no hesitation in returning last week. Excellent food and service and we will hopefully make a return visit next year on our travels through Namibia!
