Fresh seafood and lots of it. On the waterfront with a view. Nothing fancy but great food and the prices seemed reasonable. A recommended stop to dine.

Being winter (May), it was very cold, but adequate heaters. The view was pretty good, watching people long the beach and jetty. We hadn't seen the sun set into the Atlantic in Namibia, and it was quite spectacular. Seafood was quite good, service was busy,...More
