Among the Best Lüderitz Restaurants – The Portuguese Fisherman
The Portuguese Fisherman is one of the latest Lüderitz Restaurants to pull the crowds thanks to its affordable prices, substantial portions and great selection of fresh Atlantic Ocean seafood. You’ll find this popular eatery alongside the Lüderitz Museum in Diaz Street right across from the beach.
It’s close to all the best Lüderitz attractions and accommodation options.
This nautical-themed eatery opened in December 2018 and is bedecked with simple blue and white décor and rustic wooden tables in the outside seating areas. Inside, you’ll find the walls adorned with maritime signal flags and intimately arranged white tables for casual family dining.
Owner, Joe Fontez, is an engaging and attentive host who takes the time to welcome guests and visit each table personally during mealtimes.
What’s on the Menu?
The Portuguese Fisherman serves lunch and dinner daily from 10am and offers an a la carte menu. Some of the top hits on the menu include:
- Hake Tongue appetizer
- Sea food cataplana
- Caldeirada- a Portuguese seafood stew
- Grilled clams and port
- Cheesy oysters
- Seafood Rice
- Tuna steak
Afterwards, you can satisfy your sweet tooth with a generous helping of malva cake to end the perfect meal in Lüderitz.
You can also check out the chalkboard for a host of daily specials crafted from the ocean’s best offerings for the day. If you’re not a fan of seafood, the chicken curry comes highly recommended and vegetarians will love the freshly dressed salads.
The small wine list includes fine South African wines and fantastic locally-brewed and German beers.
The Secret to The Portuguese Fisherman’s Success
While the casual hospitality at this restaurant is commendable, the real star of the show here is the town’s incredible seafood. The cold water of the Atlantic is oxygen rich and boasts thriving populations of plankton, which means oysters, prawns, clams and mussels grow fast and furiously in these waters.
Faster growth means an abundant supply is always at ready for harvest and can be delivered to local restaurants quickly and regularly. It’s rare to come across a fish or crustacean in Lüderitz that’s been out of its watery abode for over two hours.
