Part of the first-of-its-kind establishment in Namibia will be three top-class restaurants that will occupy the ground floor. One of the eateries includes the Ocean Cellar, – a speciality seafood restaurant, Oyster and Wine Bar with an open show kitchen and Sushi & Shashimi eat-at-counter.
Situated on the historic Swakopmund Mole, just a few meters from the beachfront, the Ocean Cellar offers both indoor and outdoor restaurant and lounge seating all with spectacular sea views. It is open 7 days a week from 12 noon through to 10 pm serving not only lunch and dinner but also all day snacks.
“O&L Leisure finds delight, not only in the exquisite menu which awaits guests to the Ocean Cellar, but the set-up of the restaurant will also contribute immensely to the ultimate experience. A sleek, yet casual design with the open kitchen at its core, in a recessed area where the chefs diligently practice their craft in open view of the customers. Even the color theme of the restaurant blends in perfectly for an ultimate seafood along the coast experience,” said Executive Chef, Dallas Orr.
There is also indoor seating, embraced by the most contemporary decor of the Strand Hotel Swakopmund’s five food and beverage outlets. The open-air veranda provides for closer view over the Atlantic Ocean and the mole at large, while the large, refreshing outdoor dining area takes you closer to the sea, allowing the diner to breathe the invigorating fresh sea air while enjoying exquisitely prepared seafood.
Chef Dallas adds: “All three restaurants at the Strand Hotel Swakopmund offer unique experiences. The Brewer & Butcher will provide for a laid back ‘chilling’ adventure, while at the Farmhouse Deli you can have a great family meal in absolute quality. At times you might be in the mood for something lighter, yet more intimate and sophisticated, and of course a fresh and delightful seafood experience, which the Ocean Cellar will accommodate for.”
