Fodor's Review

It's all about location at the Tug, which, as its name suggests, is actually an old tugboat that has been raised up and moored next to the jetty. Swakops is known for its fresh seafood—especially the local oysters—which is quite good here. Creative seafood alternatives include venison or ostrich stir-fry. Try to reserve a sea-view table so you can watch the ocean crashing just beneath you, but reserve at least a week in advance. The outside deck is also a coveted location for a summer sundowner and it's always bustling with visitors and locals alike; alternatively enjoy an after-dinner drink in the bar which is feels like you are in the boat's bridge.
