Lyon Des Sables
French-Fusion Cuisine in Walvis Bay
One of the top restaurants in Namibia is located in the tiny shipping industry town of Walvis Bay. Lyon des Sables is located on the upstairs level of a small oceanfront shopping complex and boardwalk. After dining on our own campsite cooking for the past several days, our Chanterelle mushroom and parmesan risotto, oryx steaks and apple tart were a welcome change of pace. The restaurant is run by two French men so, naturally, the menu describes it as a "French-cuisine concept" restaurant. I'm not sure whatever that means, but it was excellent.
