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.

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.

My partner and I received this restaurant recommendation from one of the lodges in Knysna and we were not disappointed. Our waitress, Tamara made it all the more special. She was very hospitable and friendly, and provided great recommendations on what to order. A bottle of wine, two wonderful dinners, with desert and coffee to cap off a wonderful dining... More

Fantastic meal! Couldn't fault to food I just wished I could have eaten more! Service was the best id experienced in South Africa. Kelly our waitress was great, nothing was a problem and she made us feel incredibly welcome to the small cozy restaurant! If you have room try the dream cake! Mmmmm yummy!

This is a special place to visit. Run by a small crew who know how to cook fish perfectly. Front of house expertly managed. We had the gurnard and soles, both very good. Inventive kids menu.
