We ate here on our first night in Knysner, the hotel had already recommended and booked it for us as it was early December and the restaurants get fully booked, so it's not wise to leave your bookings until the last minute. If you want to eat at the better places. I have only given this place 4 stars because... More

I think the problem is Knysna just doesn't do good food. Compared to the rest of south africa this was by far the worst meal we had and other people we met on our travels said the same of Knysna. The Anchorage is probably the best of a bad bunch. I had the grilled squid but it came lightly battered... More

We enjoyed our meal here. The resturant was full and it was obvious that it was popular with the locals as well. Had an enjoyable meal which left us feelling very full after. Waiters were fun and added to making us feel welcome. Highly recommended and great food.

After eating here on a recent Wednesday night I found this restaurant to be lacking in quality food. The owner/ manager was unfriendly on our arrival. The waiter was pushy in a comedic way. When we decided against dessert he definitely turned off the charm. My mashed potatoes were terrible, the sole ok. The best thing was the side of... More

Knowledgeable about the wines and the extensive menu . We both had three marvellous courses and a wonderful Pinotage and desert wine . The Line fish was Gurnard which was excellent and beautifully presented... More

We had dinner at Anchorage - to reserve a table is a absolute must as it has not too many tables. The team is very well organized - when arriving we were immediately informed that the kitchen is very busy at the moment and it might take a bit longer for food. I really appreciate if this is just said... More

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.
