Excellent friendly and informative service

Despite not booking ahead, staff always found a table for 2 and made us feel part of their dining experience. We enjoyed lively discussions on food and wine selection and were never disappointed

We were lucky enough to get a table in this fabulous restaurant. Just what we wanted, bistro style, not pretentious and the staff were great, full of suggestions and enthusiasm with great attention to detail. Thai chicken and corn soup and grilled calamari with side salad for starters, then piece de resistance for me was the kingklip steak with fries... More

Very popular place - we scraped in with the last table at 7pm. Good fish, attentive service let down by a mix up on the order, which was however speedily resolved. Pleasant, but we wouldn't rush to return.

Plump oysters - great steaks - and a gentle admonishment by our waiter, Benji, to my girlfriend - refusing her request for steak well-done!

We had a spontaneous stay at Anchorage, without reservation. The service was great and the food really good. The filet steak and the fish were excellent. Can recommend the spot truly!!!

Brian the Owner/Manager, runs a good ship and his staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Primarily a seafood restaurant but with great steaks as well. Food well presented in this revamped Grey Street building and booking in season is essential. He has huge local support during the entire year which speaks volumes for this small and established eatery.

Had to book 2 nights in advance. Were keen to try local fish. Great choice. We had oysters then seafood platter for 2: loads of food! Pleasant waiter, quite keen on up selling from menu. Did warn us (correctly) about slow service....toilets not up to standard of main restaurant.

Fish was very Good. Hendrik our waiter great and helped to overcome the looooooong waiting time. When we wanted to take our drinks inside as we started freezing outside the owner was not very polite by advising or demanding us to a table. Outside sitting means sit on the parking space. Not recommended.
