I was looking for a new restaurant in Knysna and we found it in the Anchorage which apparently has been going for a long time. Quite expensive but we had a really good meal. My husband had 6 oysters which he said were excellent and we both had grilled prawns which were sweet and very enjoyable. I am happy to... More

Despite the fact that I cannot stand fish (and am strict vegetarian so would never eat it), this restaurant had quite a few options for me, even gluten free, and it was very good! My friend loved her fish and the service was good too.

This place has a good choice of seafood, though no view of the sea itself! Oysters were terrific, the hake not so great. Service was fine, though it's never great when you are by yourself! Seemed to be chatty and friendly with bigger tables so people looked happy with service generally. A good place to get a selection of fresh... More

We loved the seafood platter and had a great wine with it. Service was very good and we had a very good dining experience with our family of four. Recommendable !

Started not so good with my wife's mushroom starter having cocktail sticks in it that she almost swallowed but just spotted them first. We were told that the waiter should have mentioned this. My leek and potato soup was very good. The sole was excellent, absolutely first class. Would we return, yes

We were staying at Graywood hotel, and this restaurant was quite close by. It was rather busy, but we were lucky to get a table for two. We had starters, Thai fish cakes and Potato&leek soup. Both excellent and tasty, maybe a little bit on the large side for a starter. For Main course my husband had Sole, and I... More

We arrived around 8pm and were lucky because one table was still available (we sat outside on the patio). We ordered the mushroom tower and springbock carpaccio for a starter and the beef fillet and line-fish of the day as main dish. While all the dishes were very good, the beef fillet was outstanding. We also enjoyed chatting to our... More

My friend and I wanted to make sure we ate great seafood while visiting Knysna. This place had been recommended to me from a friend. The service was lovely, we chatted and talked about what we were looking for, and our server recommended cocktails and tasty dishes (appropriately sized) for just the two of us. First time I really appreciated... More
