“Laid back charm!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

A destination in itself, not just for those with a bit of time to kill before or after a splendid Mola Mola tour! Hearty and tasty food at sensible prices

“One of the best kept secrets in Walvis Bay!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

We've been visiting the Bay for many years and for some reason only found this gem this year. Located in the Broadwork, around the corner from the Raft and Walvis Bay Yacht Club, the Anchor is a true find. We had the line fish special of the day which was superbly cooked and accompanied with crisp chips and a complimentary side salad, plus a cold bottle of Chardonnay. Both of us agreed that it was the best meal we have had in any restaurant we had been in during our times in Namibia. Of course sitting outside overlooking the water on a clear blue sky day all added to the fantastic dining experience. And thanks to our waitress Nancy for the great service. Whatever you do when in Walvis Bay, the Anchor should be on top of your list as THE place to dine.

“Rustic, harbour front view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

This is a rustic place with a great ambience to enjoy seafood and decent steaks and watching the harbor activities. The service can be a bit slow if the place is full, but so are most places in town. The calamari is divine, and so the line fish (ask the waiter re catch of the day!). The quality is consistent. The home made bread is excellent - do not over eat.

“Anchors, our second home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

When you walk into Anchors, being greeted with friendly smiles, makes you feel like a welcome guest in a friend's home. The setting is picturesque, whether you are having breakfast; watching the pelicans and boats, or sitting watching the sun set with the flamingos in the background and a cold drink in your hand. The only thing that comes close to being as good as their calamari is the big 5 platter - it's a great way to share a meal (and some good wine) with friends. The weekly specials add variety and they often have delicious fresh fish. This is may not be 5* gourmet food, but it is tasty, healthy (relatively) and definitely the best value for money in Walvis.
