“Good food & service”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

Good food/service and excellet location in the cener of Cape Waterfront. Due to a misunderstanding we had missed to prebook a table for four but although the resturant was "full" they manage to fix a table for us.

“Good food and atmosphere but pricey and not child friendly”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

Fancy restaurant with nice views over the waterfront. Better suited for celebrating occasions than having lunch with your kids. Seafood was good.

“A nice place to rest and have food/drink”
Reviewed April 2, 2013 via mobile

We stopped here for a light lunch and a drink. It was @14:00 hours and it was not busy. The service, food and view were all very good and it reminded us of our days in Belgium. Caprese salad and Salmon plate were excellent. Our B&B owner said this place is one of the better spots on the Waterfront.

“Great view but disappointing food”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

Den Anker has a great location at the V&A Waterfront with wonderful mountain views and is a lovely place to enjoy a beer overlooking the mountains. The food on the other had is disappointing and VERY expensive! I had the chateaubriand - the meat was lovely but the sauce tasted like undercooked packet gravy and the vegetables it came with consisted of 4 cherry tomatoes and 3 beans. My friend had the mussels and wasn't too impressed either. Was shocked at the hefty price tag and won't be returning to eat there...
