Visited a number of restaurants in Swakopmund and Walvis Bay, but our best meal by far was at The Wreck! Steaks were perfectly cooked and our side dishes were delicious. Our waiter, Stephanus, was on point and extremely friendly. Not to mention the amazing view...More

We went for a nice quiet dinner. Good wines to choose from. We had a 3 course dinner and extra sweet stuff. Make a reservation and just enjoy the good food. They only have a limited number of seats. Highly recommended.

Good coffee and snacks and free wi-fi which is difficult to find in Walvis Bay. They take SA Rand which helps if you've come from there.

We stayed here for two days and went for dinner once and twice for breakfast. Fantastic views of the beach and ocean - really worth booking for dinner, although our steaks were not completely up to standard - my rib eye was way too tough...More

Has a lovely leisurely dinner here with friends. Quiet atmosphere and good service. Excellent quality food. Staff were attentive but not always peering over your shoulder.
