This was recommended by friends. Doesn't look much from the outside but the food is excellent and the staff are friendly and very helpful in explaining the food recommendations . Brilliant-don't be put off by the outside appearance because you'll miss a treat.

Had a great meal at Anchorage at very reasonable prices. Great service as well. We were a party of five and everybody agreed that the food was great.

Impossible to recommend a better place if you are a seafood lover. Delicious sole fish (the "house special), king prawns, seafood platters, can't get any better. Small scale restaurant with personal attention from the staff.

If you like fish, this is the place. Their fish was obviously very fresh and beautifully cooked. You probably need to book.

I will start with a confession: The Ancorage was not our first choice. Or second. We followed the Trip Advisor ranking and tried other places first, but since we arrived at Knysna in the evening we could not find a table in other restaurants. We did not regret this for a second.

The Waterfront is a must when visiting Knysna. But once you tire of the crowds of tourists, make a beeline for The Anchorage. No more than 500m from The Waterfront, but with a view of a parking lot, it is always fully booked. That should tell you plenty. The atmosphere is relaxed, with a mix of locals and tourists, and...
