We had a very enjoyable dinner after the Oyster festival. The staff is great, very friendly and accommodating. Oysters were awesome as was the line-fish of the day (Angelfish) -- dessert was great too. The prawns were not very good. Just to be aware, we saw (and looked into) the freezer near the bathroom and saw sole and other seafood... More

We came here because our BnB booked us a reservation here. A cozy cute restaurant, menu with decent variety of seafood, beef and vegetarian options. We had the Tower of Mushrooms and Stuffed Pepperdews which were both good. I had the calamari salad and my husband had the sole, both were good as well. Dessert of Malva pudding and Amarula... More

Despite its fairly inconspicuous location, the Anchorage is really a top restaurant. We had fish cake starters (which were divine), and our main course of the angelfish was a very generous serving, and was prepared excellently. The wine list is not extensive, but we found it (compared with similarly priced seafood places in Cape Town) very good value for money.... More

We stopped in at Anchorage as most restaurants in Knysna are closed on a Monday night. The food was okay but very pricey we had the Mossel bay sole which was R140 on menu, but we were charged R159 each?? Even at R140 it is expensive. Pembury's sole is only R118 and the ambience and service is far better. Sorry... More

I really liked the restaurant when I was in Knysna and couldn't wait to go back this year. The service was excellent but the specials board was the same as last year. The food was good but I thought it was a little better last year, I am hoping they just had an off day and will be back to... More

Was here is December 2014. My dad came to visit from De Aar, and he LOVES fish. So we tried a new place, Achorage. And when we arrived we were sceptical, but as soon as the food came out, I know we made the right choice.
