We joined another couple there on a Sunday night. They had a great buffet with plenty of food and many different dishes. After dinner they gave a pareau/sarong display with a couple of willing participants. Very nicely done! My only 'constructive critique' would be the music! They had 4 men playing on their ukes and/or guitars and the music was... More

The banquet BBQ on a Sunday was the goods. Complete selection of meats and seafood, fresh salads with local flavours and if you still have room desserts to follow. Night was topped of with sarong tying lessons and traditional Polynesian dance.

Understandably they were busy. When the food arrived it was outstanding. I would recommend eating out here. A la... More

We ate here twice recently and on both occasions the food was very good. Outstanding most delicious food is the chefs choice anti pasto platter for two. 5-6 delicious samples of the mains. So good that I ordered that as my main next time I went. Pork belly was brilliant on our first night with crunchy crackle and tender meat,... More

During our stay at Sunset Resort, we dined on several occasions at the Anchorage Restaurant. They host several "Special" dinners each week with live entertainment. The food was simply amazing combined with fantastic presentation...Truly Island gourmet.
