Great Meal

Was staying at Sunset, so I had a couple of meals at the Anchorage. If you go do try the curry its surprisingly spicy. And the chef does a great bbq.

Great restaurant, with amazing meals on offer. Would highly recommend you have a meal here even if you are not staying at the Sunset Resort it is worth visiting.

Amazing chef Tony and his beautiful staff, made our wedding reception unforgettable - from the island style table settings and amazing buffet dinner, we were really spoilt. He is unmatched and an asset to the Sunset Resort, thank you Tony & the staff x

The service is a little bit slow, but the food is good. A little complaint is that there are several ants and small spiders hide in the bamboo-made table mat.

Our experience of The Anchorage was average. During our stay in Rarotonga, we happened to stay at the Sunset Resort, which is where The Anchorage is situated. The first meal was delicious. It was on their Beef & Reef night I believe. They had two people singing which was good because they sung all types of songs. They were really... More

I couldn't fault the presentation and the taste of my first dinner here -Jason the chef. Another meal with Tony the chef also excellent. Then another with the new chef Boyd also top class. The Anchorage served the best food we tried in Rarotonga and would definitely recommend

We stayed at the Sunset Resort and were thrilled to have such a great restaurant right at the resort! The staff is great and the food is very good at reasonable prices. The special buffet on Sunday is excellent. We missed the one on Wednesday but I'm sure it was good, too. The local guys who come in to entertain... More

We were staying at the Sunset Resort and delighted to find this excellent Resturant was ours for the choosing! The Live Muics was very enjoyable listening. We choose the Fresh Prawn Salad, as we were leaving very early the next day and wow what a surprise! It was quite the most delicious Prawn Salad we have ever had!

We were part of a group of 10. Restaurant was not busy, a Thursday night. Service was good for Rarotonga. The Ika Mata (raw fish) was fresh, flavoursome and well presented, far better than I had two days prior at Sails. I had the pork belly special, great presentation, tasty, not surprisingly the scallop part was average. Desserts were pretty... More
