We went for our anniversary dinner, on entering restaurant we were told to go a different spot and wait, same person, who appeared to be manager in charge then asked us if we had a booking, then showed us two different menus, because which menu you choose, ascertains where you can sit! The seafood menu for their second restaurant (which... More

Waiter was off-handed. White tablecloths have disappeared, food ordinary - could have cooked better at home and cost $230.00 for two. When we paid we were asked to pay a surcharge for Amex, waiter said MasterCard was fine and then another waiter came to transact the payment and hit us with a surcharge for MasterCard. This restaurant really needs to... More

Hi, We went for dessert couple of days before and for breakfast this morning. Amazing restaurant and service. The setup is waterfront and views to Marina. This has become our not to miss destination whenever we are in Port Stephens either staying with anchorage or somewhere else.

My fiance and I had been looking forward to dinner here given what we'd heard about The Anchorage. We arrived and after a short delay finding our booking we were ushered to a table outside. Over the course of the night we ordered proseco, rosé, the flatbread starter, lamb, buffalo mozzarella, calamari entrees, and chocolate dessert. Overall the food &... More

My partner and I went to the Gallery Kitchen on our last night in the area. My only regret is I went on the last night of our trip. The food was exquisite and the service was incredible. We got flatbread to begin. salmon and sirloin steak for mains with green veggies and roast potatoes for sides. The whole night... More

There actually two restaurants here,at the Anchorage this is the cheaoer restaurant , the more expensive one had beautiful looking food but the flavour was virtually non existent. This is open every evening and there was nothing wrong with our food but nothing special about it. Suffice to say I cannot now (four days later) remember what we ate except... More

We once again (fourth time eating here) booked the Galley Restaurant for our anniversary dinner (it was our 2nd wedding anniversary). The Anchorage has now changed their restaurant offering whereby the inside is now a seafood restaurant and the outside is now the Galley Kitchen, the latter offering a variety of meals - this is what we chose as we...

We were taken here by friends from Sydney who rate The Galley Kitchen - we were not disappointed. Superb service from a very professional waitress who knew how to interact with restaurant guests to enhance their experience - very well done!! We started with the best flatbread we have ever had the pleasure of eating. Roasted garlic and Parmesan flatbread... More

The food was fine and the service good but it worked out a bit pricey for what you got. But it was lovely to sit inside a watch the rain.
