The Olive and Anchor has become one of our Horseshoe Bay favourites and we have always enjoyed our meal. Make sure to ask if there are any specials available; we had halibut the last time we were there which was prepared perfectly and absolutely delicious.

Great brunch on Saturday until noon. Never open on Sunday. Great food, great service. Not to be missed. By the way, all their food is tops. Not just brunch. Faces the water. Cozy and casual. Locals love it.

While the decor may be understated, the food and service at the Olive & Anchor is excellent. The smoked salmon flatbread is one of my personal favs and the pavlova dessert is absolutely fabulous. It is in a beautiful location and well worth the drive.

Wow, how often can you find a ferry terminal with a restaurant that is so super? Certainly not in the UK. The four of us ordered a range of dishes, all were good sized portions, hot when served and very palatable. A really good meal...More

Somewhat a lack of ambiance, more like a pub inside but maybe that's what they aim for. A good assortment of wines offered. My wife had a Fried Brussel Sprouts appetizer($13.00) that was tasty, and an order of Yam Fries, lots in the basket! I...More
