Large room with a balcony. Good food and great wines/drinks in the restaurant/bar. Nice view with the Flamingo Lagoon just outside the hotel.

After a busy day exploring the dunes of Walvis Bay, Flamingo Bay was a lovely place to enjoy dinner and drinks. Highly recommend making a reservation–we had to sit at the bar since the restaurant was fully-booked. The restaurant was packed, but it was a...quiet atmosphere with fast service.More

For my personal choice… this is the best place for a meal in Walvis Bay. The place is divided into two separate areas on the ground floor… a bar area, and a restaurant area to the left. Both of which I enjoyed. As to the...restaurant, I will admit that I like it very much. The place is relatively new, with a fantastic and modern décor, comfortable seating, and very… VERY pleasant atmosphere. The view over the bay is fabulous, and the flamengos don't let you down... as they are visible from the table next to the window. Service is fast, attentive and very professional. Staff know what they are talking about, and recommendations are up to speed with this category of restaurant. As to the food, it is amazing. The carpaccio starter was fantastic… and the fish (kingklip) was prepared to perfection. The choices of wine were amazing, to fit any pocket… and for a very reasonable pricing, we had a South African wine that absolutely hit the spot. I know that pricing is not cheap in this place… but I always say that I do not mind paying good money, for fantastic food… and that is exactly what you get at this place… excellent food, not cheap – but VERY fair for the quality that is presented. After starter and main… as much as I wanted to try… there was no steam left for desert… so we rounded off the evening with a decent attempt at an expresso coffee. Yes, the evening was a pleasant surprise in my books. So, summing up… FANTASTIC food… for me (up to today) the best meal in Walvis Bay, at a “fair” price, with amazing service… You cannot ask for better than that. I will come back, next time I am in town.More

We had an excellent steak there last night - top quality food and outstanding service. Unfortunately they’re still using Styrofoam boxes for doggies bags and for take aways !!! Definitely not environmentally friendly ! Most restaurants in Walvisbay have made the change already - please...can you ?More

Were not sure what to expect as not many places open on a Sunday when we were in Town, but despite some ostentation attached to a boutique hotel the food was good quality and not over-priced, eating area was a little sterile but generally comfortable...with a degree of ambiance.More

First time visiting and enjoyed it very much. Called ahead to make a reservation and to request a nice table since we were celebrating our anniversary. The main reception was very professional and suggested that they decorate the table for us, which was a nice...perk that we didn't have to ask for. Waiter was diligent, fairly knowledgeable and gave us ample time to make our choices. The salmon starter was excellent with a larger amount of salmon; sirloin steak was fantastic and dessert was also tasty. We had a bottle of wine and even tried the restaurant's version of "pap" (a traditional Ovambo food staple). One mark comes off for lack of ambiance. No background music! We asked the waiter why this was so and he said that the music system is hooked up to every area of the hotel and guests have complained that it was too loud in the hallways outside their rooms. Obviously this is a terrible design flaw that must be corrected. Pricing is a little higher than other local restaurants, but the food and service are also top-notch. Also, when compared to European or North American food prices, this place is still a steal! (N$830.00 for two starters, two mains, a bottle of wine, a mixed cocktail and dessert!) Restautant and outdoor patio were very busy - a good sign! Friends of ours have been to the bar for snacks and drinks and have also given this place a thumbs up.More

We had just arrived late into Walvis Bay and this was the closest restaurant to our hotel. (Egumbo Lodge) The lodge had made the reservation for us but when we arrived the table was not set and no one knew about it. They quickly made...a table up and we had a very good meal. Service was slow and the waitress looked like she would rather be somewhere else. We made fun of it and it didnt spoil the meal.More

It was great that we had help going into the restaurant - a wheelchair is always a bit of a problem when the occupant is rather big and the carer is rather small. (My husband is the big one and I am the small one)...The ambience is great and the service fantastic. Brian ordered a fillet steak, medium rare. Wow! In his own words; "I've never had a steak that can compare with this. It's in a world of its own." I ordered the Norwegian smoked salmon. Everything about my plate of food was sheer perfection. We were pleased to meet Chef Carvaldho Olivier. He's a down to earth young man from Rehoboth, who's had on-the-job training.More
