Food is good, service is good. Food is very pricey though :-( Be sure to book at least 1 or 2 days in advance. Best to go before sunset - if you go too late you there is no view...

A must to visit when you are in Swakopmund. The location is to die for! Their food and service is excellent and you get good value for money.

When I visited in the evening it was cold and windy. Several fishermen were enjoying the evening. The cafe at the end of the jetty was closed. It is probably a very nice visit on a warm calm day. It's a good short stroll before eating in the Tug Resturant which is next to the Jetty.

We booked here for lunch as it is rated the number one Restaurant in Swakop. What a disaster!! The service is bad, and the manager is a total spiteful man. Not Manager material at all. We stood up and walked out. Will not recommend this place as it is totally overrated and not worth going. There are far better and... More

Enjoyed our evening here, but found it rather more expensive than local competition, with a less extensive menu. Attentive, but unobtrusive service. Worth a visit.

The setting is perfect for dinner but make sure you arrive before sunset for a magnificent view. The food was excellent and the service friendly and good. They kept their promise and gave us a table at the window as promised when we booked. I will be back.

We went on a night when it was very cold and there was a howling wind and waves so walking out the jetty was an experience. We really enjoyed the restaurant. Had oysters and tuna tartare for starters, both delicious, then seared tuna and sole ( which isn't the same sole as we are used to) both fine. Terrific service,... More

So it's at the end of the pier - so you visit. I chose to go in and found an excellent eatery - great staff and management. As a single diner I was invited to come back - not often a table for one is so well supported!! Great views of the ocean - dolphins and their friends sometimes frequent... More

Was here for a birthday party with a bunch of friends. The Jetty is a perfect beach destination reflecting much of what Swakopmund is famous for. Ideal for families or for couples who want to holiday in beautiful Swakop. The Jetty is a laid-back restaurant with fine dining, great sea food and amazing views of the ocean and beach. Sometimes...

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
