A really brilliant restaurant. Went on a both a Monday and Tuesday evening and it was full both times. Great atmosphere and very relaxed. The staff were helpful, knowledgable and very attentive without being in any way intrusive. The food was truly outstanding, especially the fish dishes. I wholeheartedly recommend it.

Food, ambience, everything. Best meal in a long time, super enjoyable. We had steaks and local wine. Wonderful hosts, relaxed welcoming and unpretentious. Would return time and time again if we were local. 5/5

We were disappointed by this restaurant which had been recommended to us by previous customers. When the bread arrived we thought it was a joke as it was a finger roll sliced into six, each piece about half a centimetre thich and two inches in circumference. If they had run out of decent bread they should have served a roll... More

Delicious food and warm hospitable setting! The restaurant is quaint and staff are very friendly and welcoming. They offer seafood as well as meats that are a delicacy

This restaurant had good reviews and was close to the Kynsna Log Inn where we stayed. Unfortunately, it did not meet our expectations. I had sweet potato-spinach bake; it had not enough spinach, and the sauce overwhelmed the tast of the sweet potato. We had asked for separate checks, and this turned out to be an almost undoable chose for... More

Ate here on the first night of our Knysna trip based on recommendation from our B&B hosts. We were greeted warmly and shown to a table towards the front of the restaurant. It was really busy at the time - which is usually a good sign! Anchorage offers a good selection of specials, most of which as you'd expect from... More

The Anchorage is a little above average but doesn't earn a very good as the salad starter was poor and the vegetables were not great. The pricing for what was offered was a little steep probably because they cater for tourists. The soles and baby kingklip were very tasty and well prepared. The service was good and the decor has...
