GREAT FOOD AND GOOD VALUE

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

I have to think the Anchorage is possibly a bit underrated, probably not quite "the place" for meal in Knysna but can't see why, whenever we go we always enjoy their food and service, it is excellent.

The Anchorage is a typical casual place where locals and travelers meet. A small place. You get a good service and decent meals at competitive pricing. The service is very friendly.

It's casual and has a nice vibe. The oysters were huge and main courses (fish) were excellent. This is a true fish-lover's restaurant and was recommended to us by our B&B. Definitely would return.

We had a nice evening meal at the Anchorage in Knysna. The owner was on hand to great the patrons and made a point of attending each table to ask about the meal. The location is a bit small so make sure to have reservations. There are a few tables outside as long as the evening is not too cool.... More

Visited this lovely restaurant on a horrendously wet evening . Despite the weather , they were full and turning diners away - so remember to book !! The staff were very knowledgable and friendly but not intrusive. They specialise in locally caught seafood as well as traditional meat dishes. We chose different fish dishes and the meal could not be... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by our B&B hosts and we were glad we took their advice. It's close to the waterfront but not on it so it would be easy to miss if you don't know where it is. But what it lacks in location it makes up for in quality of food and service. The staff were... More

The Anchorage has existed in Knysna longer than any other restaurant and for a good reason. Brian Smith and his team consistently serve up some of the best food in town. Sole Anchorage is their signature dish and the steaks are close behind. Kelly has selected some of the best wines around and is always ready help pair your wine... More
