Amazing food and service

Brilliant a la carte menu and wonderful staff! The food was of a very high quality and beautifully presented from the a la carte menu. And reasonably well priced for a resort location. Dawn and her staff were always friendly and attentive and really make the place special.

Wow we have eaten here several times. I love the Tuna Nori and any of the fish dishes are fantastic. I would recommend dinner as the best meal to go for. Friendly staff and great food

I used to take the group each year to The Sands Restaurant which Tony the owner had since sold, this year I booked in with his new business The Anchorage and was not disappointed. Tony is very easy to work with and always delivers great results. Staff... More

Tropical breakfasts were delicious - buffet style continental (cooked option also available) Theme nights are very popular, Roast /Seafood/ BBQ .The food is wonderful and the live music a lovely bonus. Service is faultless.

Had several meals at this restaurant whilst staying at the Sunset and enjoyed every one of them. We were a party of four couples and the staff went out of their way to ensure that we could all be seated together. Every meal we had was faultless and the staff were amazing and professional. Great entertainment was provided on several... More
