Very near to where we stayed anne found it disappointing Service was below par although trying to act like a top notch restaurant. But never asked how the meal or wine was and merely went through the motions of serving without much care. was found the so called called fresh fish tasteless and soggy as if it had been frozen....

One I had the steak and it was to die for, cooked perfectly and the ladies are so nice and friendly. I did find it very quiet though, definitely not party central. The second night was their Sunday BBQ with a guitar... More

The Anchorage Restaurant at the Sunset Resort in Raratonga provided us with one of the best meals we had while visitng the Cook islands.

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

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
