Great fish, steak done perfectly and a wonderful desert called "dream cake". Its good solid food and if all you want is fresh fish - this is good bet. The service is exceptional and great personal attention to detail.

With the personal attention of the owner, every meal is superb. A great food and wine menu and European visitors will be particularly impressed with the quality of food and service, which comfortably rival the best food in the major european cities.

We dine at Anchorage whenever we visit Knysna and are never disappointed. This time I was introduced to Wild Beast Brewery Amber Ale - an excellent complement to a quality meal. Consistently good food and drink over more than a decade of dining there.

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.

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.
