The Anchorage Restaurant at the Sunset Resort in Raratonga provided us with one of the best meals we had while visitng the Cook islands. It's a pity we only discovered this on our last night there.... the Seafood marinara in a tomato based sauce was a delight and my husband enjoyed a beautifully grilled piece of of fish with a...

We were staying at the Resort and decided to go to the Surf 'n' Turf night with great local entertainment. The whole meal was fantastic and the desserts amazing. Thanks

We were staying at Sunset Resort. We ate here on our first and last nights of holiday. Absolutely loved both meals but the second one was the best meal out I have ever had and we eat out A LOT!. The first night I was the lucky one of the group as my fish was fantastic. The other 4 of... More

About an hour later our mains arrived but no entre questioned the waitress and within five minutes the entre arrived, Three deepfried scollops with... More

The Anchorage is so much better that a year ago. The food has always been great, but last year the staff was not so nice. This year they are very attentive and gracious. Especially Violet. The change in management is noticed and welcomed.

The service was the best we had, very attentive. And the food was amazing. I had the seafood marinara and my partner had the baked fish- which was the best meal we had all week. We ate here again for dinner with the rest of our party and they loved it too. The other people around us were also raving... More

After our disaster at the Sands restaurant we thought to try this restaurant a couple of days later for my birthday. We weren't disappointed despite the terrible weather. The food would have to be the best I have eaten anywhere (including Auckland). I would class this as fine dining and the subtlety of flavours in our seafood chowder was hard... More

We stayed at Sunset Resort for our wedding anniversary and ate dinner twice at The Anchorage Restaurant. The chef Tony has created a new menu and everything we tried was delicious especially the grilled tuna - best tuna I have ever eaten. We definitely recommend the coconut bread & butter pudding as well it was fantastic! It was the most... More

I don't know if I was comparing this to Edgewater's food but I thought this place was great. I had a couple of meals at Anchorage and they never let me down on service and cuisine. Dawn (manager I am guessing) was streaks ahead of a lot of other places for her service and chattiness.
