Reservation required as this restaurant serves excellent range of food from steaks to line caught fish and seafood and is always busy. Extra tables out on the pavement for late bookers.

This was recommended by our hosts at Hide Away to visit. So glad we did- the food was exceptional having the beautiful fish platter for 2 for just 30.00. All different types of fish seafood and special sauces . Thoroughly recommended if you want something special and are prepared to pay the price. The staff were very nice and chatty... More

We had grilled sole 2 times the week we stayed in Knysna. It was as good as we had hoped. The waiter was very friendly and told us a lot about Knysna an South Africa.

We had a good if unspectacular meal here for dinner. It's a small restaurant with a cool menu and really friendly, attentive staff. I highly recommend it!

We had a lovely meal at Anchorage. It was away from the waterfront development, and much quieter and more intimate. The quality of the food was excellent and the service was friendly.

Anchorage is just back off the Waterfront development up Grey Street, and looks very ordinary from outside. But do not be put off by that. Quite small, so booking essential, but lovely atmosphere, excellent food and attentive service.

This was our best meal so far on the holiday. The restaurant is intimate and beautifully decorated with seaside/harbour artefacts. The staff are well trained and efficient, attentive and friendly. Paul was overseeing it all and doing all the drinks. A well oiled machine. The food was delicious, our starters of boboati spring rolls and Thai fish cakes were lovely... More

A busy place - best to book. Lively and friendly waiters who make you feel welcome. Food was excellent. The chef came out to ask if we enjoyed it which was a nice touch. Would go back.
