We went out for my mothers 70th birthday and had a great evening with excellent food. The age range of the guests was between 8 and 70 and no one was disappointed. Our waitress was as enthusiastic as the food was great. The restaurant was very full (on a Thursday night) and as a result the service suffered a little... More

And the meat options looked very good, too, as they passed our table. The oysters from Arniston Bay were delicious as were the prawns and fish. Some of the tastiest fish and seafood we have ever eaten, and great care is taken with the sides as well. The service was really great and we were made to feel completely at... More

We arrived a little before restaurant was to open and were invited in to order drinks. They had local oysters which husband said were good and very good fresh fish and mussels. The waitress was very helpful choosing local wines and food. Was a fairly small restaurant that locals seemed to frequent also. Enjoyed ourselves immensely.

Usually one does not look for an exceptional restaurant in a strip mall-like location, but this is one of them. This restaurant had excellent fresh oysters on the half shell as well as many options for African game that one would usually not see on the menu. One night I was there I had an Eland steak. It was tender... More

We had a nice time at Anchorage. Good service and even better food. From starters to dessert was excellent. Only complained is that they only have grilled calamari and not battered.

Lovely, cosy restaurant. Excellent service. Excellent food. Wonderful atmosphere. This restaurant has been going for years and is well worth a visit. The locals are frequent visitors so that tells you something. We will definitly be back!

We were not disappointed.We love to eat different things so we started with bobotie spring rolls and calamari (OK not so different!) and for main had zebra steaks which were delicious. A... More
