We visited the restaurant on recommendation of our hotel. The Anchorage is a small restaurant with a cosy atmosphere and great service. My partner had Thai chicken corn soup and duo of fish (gurnard and sole) while I had the line fish which was king klip. All meals were very good and the wait staff went out of their way... More

We went to this restaurant under high praise from a local who ate there regularly. It specialises in seafood as the name would suggest so that is what I opted for. Unfortunately the butterfly prawns that I ordered were over cooked and the accompanying sauce, recommended by the waiter did not improve the meal. My partner was happy with his... More

The food was decent, but nothing to rave about. Service was excellent, however the food did take a while to arrive and whilst good, was not entirely value for money. Ordered the Anchorage sauce (cheese and prawn) and only got two pieces of prawn. The size of the sauces were minute. Usual condiments were not provided, asked for a peri... More

I am not sure that the reviewers of this restaurant are talking about the same place as we went to. My husband and I went to this restaurant on the recommendation of a local man who told us it is the best place to eat in Knysna. I don't know where else this man has dined in Knysna but this...

I tried there the Patagonia Calamari, highly recommended as well as the oysters where no and fresh. Also the seafood platter (Anchorage) was very good. However I didn't like the Mussels, not tasty and dry .. I'm sure they are the imported ones from New Zealand as they had only 1 shell. The server was efficient and well informed.

My wife and I visited for dinner. The food was very good, and also had a decent wine list. Good variety of choice without feeling like there's too much on the menu. Service was excellent for Knysna - very attentive and unobtrusive. I would recommend and visit again.
