Great service and great food

We stayed at Sunset Resort so we had morning breakfasts and ate at the restaurant 3 times for dinner. Everything was delicious and the staff are very friendly. Bbq Sunday was fab and the meat was tender and delicious. $10.00 cocktails were a fav of mine..

We decided to try this restaurant as friends had stayed at Sunset Resort and told us to give it a go. It was fine food wise, just good simple food really, waitress wasn't that flash as completely mucked up what we were requesting which was- a soup and then a selection from the starters but as a main. To our... More

We stayed and had our wedding at The Sunset Resort. Not only did we eat at The Anchorage Restaurant on a regular basis for general meals they also catered for our wedding of 64 guests. The food was amazing as well as the service from staff. They looked after myself, my hubby and our guests (who all just raved about... More

Fantastic food and great service - what more could you ask for? I thoroughly enjoyed my meals (I got all 3 - entree, main & dessert!) at The Anchorage. Would definitely give them the gold star for taste and presentation! Will be back for more visits in the future ;)

If we had not gone back for a second dinner my rating would be better. We first dined here on our anniversary and had a wonderful dinner, I had the pasta special and my husband the tuna. A little pricey but we enjoyed the entertainment and since it was our anniversary we didn't mind. We were really looking forward to... More

We stayed at Sunset Resort (which is great) and ate 3 nights at their on-site restaurant The Anchorage. Open-sided to catch the breeze (but with roll down clear blinds in case of rain.) It's friendly and efficient staff made us feel very welcome.The cocktails were great -especially the $10 cocktail of the day! Our meals were very nice on each... More

Everything was perfect, from the staff to the food to the drinks to the entertainment. We had evening meals here 5 out of the 7 nights and the food and service were top class. The daily breakfast was my idea of perfect - fresh tropical fruit, yoghurt, toast. Make sure you try all the different fruit !! I loved the... More

We have been here before and the food has been nice but expensive but thats ok but this time the amount of food was so small we had to go and get a burger afterwards and after spending all that money on a steak we were very disappointed. This is one local who will not be returning or passing on... More

We had light dinner here three times on our visit. Lots of local produce and fish, well-prepared and presented. One night the staff was suddenly inundated with about 20 un-expected diners, and they coped very well. They were attentive and tried to keep everyone happy.
