Breakfast

Was bit disappointed in the "freshness" as they advertise - "bake freshly". Service not so good - have to ask for knifes and forks after we all started eating with our hands - but this was a mess

Best place to eat in Luderitz!

Delicious meals here, went back for a second evening as we enjoyed it so much. Lovely staff, delicious, affordable wine. We had a 3 course meal with a bottle of wine for £18 or something! So cheap. Also had breakfast here which was good but preferred dinner. Walked back to the hostel afterwards which was fine and felt safe. Would definitely recommend!

The Best And The Worst in One Sitting

The vibe was awesome, and I approve of their slogan as highlighted on a sign at the entrance. Food was a mixed bag, the best soup starter I’ve had EVER, a delicious buffet-style dinner and what must have been the smallest, least fresh lobster ever seen in a restaurant. Which is weird, because surely lobster is abundant in this town that claims to be “a drinking town with a fishing problem”? Anyway, it was a very cool evening out despite the dodgy lobster.

Just excellent

This is a very typical good Mediterranean eatery. Not flashy, friendly service and wonderful food. I looked through menu and then finally followed the advice from a chatty and friendly owner and had Cataplana. It was one of the best seafood dishes I ever had. Abounding in shrimps, fish, and mussels and garnished with half of lobster. Add freshly baked bread to it and it was one gorgeous meal. Absolutely the best place to eat in Luderitz.

Tad Expensive but a great dinner experience

Lüderitz is almost the ghost town on Sundays. We decided to try here as we thought it was our best choice on getting a meal. Hansa beer is strangely the only one on tap in most places in Lüderitz. I ordered the lamb shank and all I can say, was that it was absolutely delicious. it was so good that I almost wanted to order another one for my midnight snack. The meals id say were on the expensive side but not over the top. Staff were helpful and friendly and the view outside while having dinner was amazing i'd recommend this place to any friend going to LüderitzDear Patron, I want to thank you for posting your positive review on your recent dining experience in our full service PENGUIN RESTAURANT.

Essenzeit

Restaurant with a beautiful view in Luderitz, Namibia, located at the Luderitz Waterfront serving seafood, breakfasts, steaks, etc. with an outside deck. The perfect place to have cocktails while enjoying the sunset overlooking the harbour.

Good position, good food

We stopped here for lunch on arrival in Lüderitz - the restaurant has a lovely view of the harbour, great to sit outside and enjoy meal, drink or coffee if weather is good.The service, food and selection was acceptable - it seems as if the owner/manager does not train/trust her staff sufficiently as she personally enters the WiFi password on your phone and operate the credit card machine - pity to see staff not being developed. Dear valued clientThank you for your review!! Just to put it all in perspective for you, we have supervisors trained with the system and who are disgnated to operated the credit card machines so that the waiters can stay on the floor, which is crucial during very busy times. The manager/owner's role is that of the supervisors as well when help is needed on a shift. The wifi needs to be handled by just one person, as we have run into trouble with overload and then nobody can use the internet, as people somehow used to receive the password while nit at the restaurant, and passwords needed to be changed regularly to gain back quick usage of the internet.Hope we could clear out your concerns.

nice location, but....

We went here twice when in Lüderitz. This is a very nice location with local ambience, but seating is uncomfortable. On the first evening we had excellent service, but the fish was completely undercooked. On the second evening they had run out of the wine we had the night before (stock up maybe?), service was really bad and the pork I had was was still rare. Sent it back and will look into other options for next time.

Good seafood

We stopped here for lunch while photographing around Luderitz. Having spent my whole life on the coast I have used to some pretty amazing seafood. At Ritzi's I had the raw oysters to start and a fried fish filet with calamari as the main course. These were adequate but the best thing was the bubblegum milkshake which my traveling companion encouraged me to try.Thanks for the visit, and the review.
