The service, and the Food got so poor the last months, I can not recommend this place any more. The prices went "non realistic" up, and on a e-mail the managers don't answer. Bad Food for high prices😤. We were there bevore very ofter, but...now not anymore!More

So disappointed! Except that the owner is friendly everything was not acceptable! We wait for nearly 1 hour to receive our seafood platter. The lobster was bland and prawns were over cooked. No crab as proposed on the menu, as we noticed when we finally...received our plate we received some more prawns under cooked this time…. Such a deceptive experience!!More

Great, low- key spot to try local seafood. Good quality, friendly and efficient service. Only blemish was a local dance/singing group came into the restaurant and right up to our tables which was a bit of an imposition (went on for 20 minutes). Overall recommended.

On a busy Saturday night in Swakop, our guesthouse owner managed to get us reservations at the Fish Deli. We loved this casual place, starting with delicious oysters and a (big) glass of wine at a price you’d never see in America. We followed up...with plates of local fish that we also enjoyed. At one point, a group of local singers popped in for a rousing performance of a couple of mesmerizing African songs and then a familiar piece from Lion King. The diners loved it even if the waitstaff seemed to be merely tolerating it!More

Fish Deli is a small restaurant that was able to take us for an early dinner, but they filled up quickly as the night progressed. We ordered the very flavorful mussels with garlic and fish soup for starters (the large soup is pretty big!), and...the fresh catch for our mains. The fish was flaky and tenderly seasoned to ensure the original flavor wasn’t overpowered. A highlight was the live music that arrived just as we were finishing. In all, it was a delightful experience with good food and excellent atmosphere.More

Our server was extremely kind and efficient. The restaurant is very clean. The food quality was not good. The fried calamari was rubbery and tasted mass produced. The prawns were seriously overcooked. Even the French fries were subpar.

Really relaxed place with great range of seafood. We had a smoked platter which had a wide ranger of foods. There was then a mai shellfish platter for two, as well as set main courses. Well priced for westerners, too range of drinks, and superb...service.More

What a surprise. I had the sushi platter and my wife a delicious fish soup. The sushi was so fresh with decent portions and beautifully presented. We did not book and at first we were the only people in the restaurant. Nearly al the tables...was reserved and within an hour the place was packed. I ordered Herring for desert because all the fresh fish displayed looked delicious. I did not mention the extremely reasonable prices for a five star product. Also did not know places like these still exist where waiters are so friendly , helpful and knowledgable. After a 3 week holiday through Namibia this restaurant was a highlight.More

I walked here from a nearby hotel and was pleased with our choice. They had a good selection on the menu and we were served quickly. Although it was quiet when we first arrived, it quickly filled up with locals and large tourist groups.

Our hotel staff recommended this place as their second choice, since we’d already been to their first choice the night before. We had the mussel special as a starter. Taste was good, but frequent sand particles while chewing were not appetizing. I had the prawn...mango curry. There was no mango, rather they passed canned apricot slices as mango. Not prawns, but tiny shrimp on 2 skewers. My husband had swordfish that tasted fine, but at the end of our meal we had to remind them about the salad that came with his meal. They finally brought that to him after quite a bit of wait. No one ever came during our meal to ask if we wanted wines refilled or anything else. The whole experience was disappointing.More

For me this is truly the only place that ticks all the boxes - unless you went on an off day and I mean, honestly we all have those days. But 99.9% of the time, Fish Deli is exceptional. Thank you Grace, the chef and...everyone else for going above and beyond so that I could enjoy my delicious grilled calamari and chips 💞 I've lived in RSA, Germany, Spain, travelled across Europe - but nowhere comes close to the level of quality, consistency, flavour portions and affordability. I checked out all the restaurants in Swakop over the years - old and new - but what is often quite disappointing in holiday spots, is that the food is pricey and just not worth it. Not at Fish Deli, though. Amazing work, bless you! 🙏🏽🐟✨More

Yes as far a I know everything on the menu can be "taken away". They also have a deli where you can choose what you want. They also have frozen & fresh seafood and fish for sale.
