The Raft Review
Brought to you by the builders of The Tug in Swakopmund, The Raft enjoys a similarly spectacular view from its perch out over beautiful Walvis Bay Lagoon. Divided into two parts—bar to the right, restaurant to the left—this warm and friendly establishment is the place to be in Walvis Bay. The menu is massive, with the usual array of seafood, red meat (including many game options), and the requisite pasta and vegetarian options (pizzas and burgers available at the bar only). At the time of writing, the menu was undergoing a revamp, in recognition of Walvis's food bar being raised from a standard of decent filling food to truly fine cuisine. Expect a slightly pared down menu, new homemade pastas, and sides like couscous and grilled veggies (instead of the standard parboiled rice and french fries).
