New to the Secret Garden!


New to the Secret Garden is our ’Bistro’ restaurant/café, a small cozy restaurant in the heart of "old" Swakopmund where you can enjoy wood-fired pizza, curry, pasta, salads & desserts.


Enjoy alfresco meals in an informal, relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Your hosts are Inga (Odendaal) and Innes Potgieter who are part of the Secret Garden ’family’.


Innes has more than 10 years’ experience as a pizza-man using wood-fired ovens, so we can safely claim that our pizzas are the best in town. Inga is an innovative chef and serves freshly prepared ’meal of the day’, pasta, fish, vegetarian dishes and decadent desserts.

Our licensed bar offers a wide variety of drinks and we serve Italian style coffee, espresso and cappuccino. Weather permitting you can enjoy the tranquility of our garden courtyard.

Opening times are Monday to Saturday from 17h00 - 21h30.

My friends and I visited this place on Friday night and it was so wonderful! The gluhwein was extra spicy and hot. Their pizzas are so delicious!

We stumbled across this place by chance on our last night in Swakopmund. Two excellent pizzas and a bottle of red at reasonable prices. Good service. The interior is informal,- an add-on to a guest house? But it was intimate and, most of all, the pizzas were great.

Relaxed easy going place with the best pizza in town and amongst the best in Namibia, if you like it thin crispy and lightly topped.

This little gem of a restaurant is tucked away down a dark, misty street in Swakopmund. I would never have even known that this restaurant even existed, had it not been for our amazing hostesses at Organic Square Guesthouse making a booking on our behalf.
