Great seafood restaurant with excellent choice of wine. Difficult to choose from such a varied menu. Non seafood choices also very good.

We had oysters, which were sweet and delicious, and then we tucked into the seafood platter. It had grilled calamari tubes, grilled calamari steak, prawns, sole, gurnard with... More

To keep it simple: I've visited many restaurants along Garden Route and this one is maybe the best. Went there one day and had to return the next day to try different dishes. On the first night I chose game meat specials (zebra and ostrich) and at the other seafood (sole and seafood platter). You realize that it is a... More

We ate there on our first night in Knysna and it did not disappoint. The menu was comprehensive and also had some interesting meet dishes including ostrich which one of our guest loved. Nicely appointed with a nautical theme and close to the Rex Hotel where we stayed

Arrived alone on a cold winters night. Was greeted warmly by the owner and waitress and seated close to the heater which were set on high despite the gas shortages! The restaurant atmosphere is really cosy and welcoming. The owner came and greeted me personally and even helped me decide on my meal. I ordered the the steak and calamari... More

A lovely location and wonderful place for early evening meal. The menu is fantastic and prices give good value. The place is always busy and it is definitely advisable to book before going. The whole atmosphere of the surroundings are magical.

The Anchorage has been around for a long time in Knysna and they deserve support from the locals as well as tourists from other cities. Although they do not have wonderful water views their food and service are of a high standard and they have a good selection of seafood on the menu. It is a small restaurant so booking... More
