On our first evening in the area we had dinner at El Ancla. At this time of the year it seems to be a quiet place and we enjoyed a very attentive service, had nice starters and a fantastic grilled fish! Whilst it might appear to be a bit pricey at first sight, the quality of food and the experience... More

We visited after seeing the advert for the Mixed Seafood Platter for 2. It was tasty and plentiful. Friendly waitress and nice terrace.

El Ancla is always good and we have been coming for many years, it used to be called La Bodega but much of the menu has remained the same. The service is very good and very friendly. The appetiser of warm bread rolls, ali oli and sardine pate is delicious but it can fill you up a bit too much... More

We decided to try this restaurant after seeing it being refurbished back in May. We had a table on the terrace which overlooked the sea and it was a great spot. My 3 year old daughter chose the fillet steak off the children's menu and both myself and my husband also ordered the fillet steak. Well I can honestly say... More

We always pay at least one visit to El Ancla; the menu, though limited is of excellent quality. I would highlight the cream of vegetable soup and the moules mariniere. It's a little pricey but well worth a visit for these alone.

I would recommend the beautiful duck dish and there is a vegetable soup to die for ! Chef is excellent and the food whilst not cheap is of a very high quality. Georgina is also an excellent waitress who likes cats - so that's a plus for me !

El Ancla is well worth a visit especially on a lovely evening when you can sit outside and listen to the waves. It is at the end of the main street passing lots of other restaurants on the way but is worth the effort. The food is more expensive than some of the others, but, as they say, you do... More

We visited this restaurant on the 31st of July (our last night in Callao Salvaje). Our party consisted of 4 adults & 2 young children. I can honestly say that this is not only the best meal that we've had on the island, it would put to shame many of the restaurants that we frequent in our home city of... More
