Hi Brian and Kelly,
Thank you for a wonderful evening. After many years of producing good beef my steak was probably the best I have had in Knysna. Great hospitality, really relaxed and warm atmosphere.
Thank you again.
Pete and Mart

I often bring guests to Knysna via my tour business and have eaten at Anchorage (jus off the road walking down Gray str to the K waterfront) a few times. Its quite and peaceful compared to the K Waterfront and all the restaurants there. After a hectic day you need outstanding food and fine wines to match in a relaxed and cosy atmosphere. I have NEVER been dissapointed !
Have recently eatablished that the waitress (Kelly) is an ex owner and is MOST knowledgable about wines and has a professional manner about herself. She is a Gem !!
Steak and seafood are both exceptionally good value for ££'s and I stake my reputation to recommend the Anchorage. Allan Korsman

This restaurant is extremely overrated on Tripadvisor. Again, a total disappointment when I look at the other reviews. Honestly, there are better restaurants, with better service and most importantly better food. If a restaurant burns grilled vegetables, to the point that the edges of the vegetables are black - what chance do you have of getting perfectly cooked seafood?! Also, the wait was over an hour for a simple line fish and calamari combo in a restaurant that was 50% full. Calamari was fair but the fish was dry and under seasoned. Was it fresh? - probably but after been so overcooked it could have been frozen for all I know. Service was friendly but as the restaurant got busier, her attentiveness and friendliness wained. We only managed to get hold of our waitress again at the end of the meal to point out the burnt vegetables which were uneaten. She apologised and then offered us a replacement which was a bit late since the rest of the dish was finished. The vegetables should never have made it to the pass or even out the kitchen! The waitress seemed visibly upset when we declined dessert. She could have offered us coffees in lieu of the dessert. Instead we got the bill faster than we were served the entire evening. There were a few other tables also complaining to each other around us and the general impression is that this restaurant has been riding the coat tails of it's ranking and award from Tripadvisor for far too long. You're better off ordering take out fish and chips or even going to many of the other wonderful restaurants in Knysna. Definitely not worth a first visit, never mind a return one.

This restaurant has a well deserved reputation for great food. We wish we lived nearer so we could keep coming back. We were served by Benjamin who not only made us feel very welcome but gave good advice and excellent service. The food was truly excellent and very good value for money. The ostrich steaks were cooked to perfection and unfortunately we couldn't come back the next night to try something else. Thoroughly recommended.
