“Best coffee victor”
Reviewed January 16, 2013 via mobile

You can't find a better coffee in victor. You pay a slight premium however. Food is pricey for what you get but not much else on offer in their genre.

“Best breakfast spot in Victor”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

Enjoyed another v. nice breakfast out the front of the Anchorage.
The decor has improved also with some nice plant boxes with greenery.
The view sitting in the sun is wonderful and you are sheltered from the wind usually.
A big bonus is that our pooch can join us and catch any bacon in case it falls from the table!?
The eggs & bacon etc were v. nice and the coffee extra good.
Full marks Anchorage!

“So ordinary....”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

After reading their decent online menu we went there. The actual menu has nothing in common to the online one and the food is very average - about at the level of what you would make at home yourself if in a hurry, but with a very hefty price tag considering what you get. Staff are efficient although not very friendly - no smiling faces here. Very disappointed. Restaurant is also at the back of the building even though the front faces the sea. Puzzling.

Upon investigation to this customer comment I can assure customers that the menu posted on the web site is an accurate reflection of the current menu on offer. We endeavour to provide a quality product at the most reasonable prices both for the customer and the business to run in the current economic climate. The customer must be a very good cook to make quality dishes like these at home. Anchorage is a heritage 110 year old building and the restaurant is built onto the back with sea views from large windows within heritage guidelines since 1994 and many people love the atmosphere and quaintness of the place.

“Disappointing food expensive wine”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

My friend and I ordered steaks - both were small, overcooked and chewy. My friend ordered well done and it looked like the sole of a shoe. She was sick of chips and salad so asked for veges. Next to her shrunken steak was a stack of eggplant and red capsicum, greasy and unappealing! She was hoping for a nice spud, with steamed greens & beans or something similar. I gave her most of my chips because she was still hungry after eating her nuked steak and stack. My salad was boring and dressed with a tasteless creamy dressing of some description. The steaks both came with 'Bechamel sauce' - which was bright yellow and had no flavour (I suspect it came out of a packet?). The wine was way overpriced at 8.00 a glass.
Would never go back again, sorry.

Thankyou for the comments. We will certainly try to address the issues raised. On speaking with the manager on that evening he was unaware of a problem with the meals and had he been would certainly been more than happy to assist with the issues raised. We do not make anything from a packet and the sauce is a Housemade Bernaise Sauce that we do get a lot of positive comment about. We strive to provide an experience of quality at a reasonable price and are quite reassured that the wine prices are well within range for the quality of wine we provide.
