This was the most fabulous dinner during our round trip through Western Cape. The restaurant is a real inside tip. We enjoyed a fantastic seafood platter and an unbeatable signature desert - the dream cake. Service is very very friendly. An absolute recommendation.

We had an amazing night. We did not have a reservation but they managed to squeeze us in. Ate the surf and turf as well as the hoof and scale and both were amazing.

Ate here when we visited Knysna 7 days ago. Good unpretentious seafood at reasonable prices. Service was also very good. Just 2 blocks from the rather unremarkable Knysna Waterfront.

This small restaurant is a gem. The food was fresh and delicious and the service was outstanding. Recommend the baby sole appetizer (perfect for a smaller appetite) and the oysters. If you're lucky, Benjamin will be your waiter and you'll have a great evening.

After reading the reviews we decided to try this restaurant while in Knysna - we didn’t have starters as the SA portions are quite large. Two guests had fillet steak and I had fish. The food was just ok - the steak was tender but...More

Anchorage is a restaurant that we have visited previously and the meal on this occasion was good without being excellent. The venue is crowded and the decor dated but the food is solid fare and provides a value for money option in a town that...More
