Anchor Restaurant in Walvis Bay is a true culinary delight! From the moment we walked in, we were greeted with warm hospitality and a cozy ambiance. The menu offers a fantastic selection of fresh seafood, expertly prepared and bursting with flavor. Our dishes were beautifully...presented and cooked to perfection, showcasing the local ingredients. The service was attentive and friendly, making us feel right at home. The waterfront views added to the charm, creating a relaxing and picturesque dining experience. Whether for a casual meal or a special occasion, Anchor Restaurant is a top choice. Highly recommended for anyone visiting Walvis Bay!More

Not a great experience. It was fairly busy but not full. Order taken and first drinks served quickly. It was 30 mins before the single starter was served. We then waited for over an hour for our main course despite being told it was just...coming. Ribs were tough as boots. If we hadn't waited for so long they would have been sent back instead they were left. The chips on all 3 dishes were soft and greasy. Only edible with them drowning in sauce. The steak served was fine. We had been warned it was either a hit or a miss, this was a miss.More

Anchors used to be an excellent restaurant for many years, but unfortunately our recent experience was really bad. We only got service when we asked at the counter for a waiter. All the female waiters were clothed like lady's of the night in tight leather...clothing and gathered all the time at an outside table where some men (looked like sailors) were tabled. We got the impression that the restaurant acted as a front for red light night activities afterwards. The food was not good and the service was worse. Anchors is not a high class restaurant anymore and won't see me again. What a pity that such a beautiful setting is wasted like this.More

We arrived at 13h00 for lunch, by 15h20 we’re still waiting for our food. We enquired multiple times, but the floor supervisors didn’t even bother to come and found out what’s going on. We are never going back to Anchors again. POOR SERVICE!!

When we visited the Anchors Waterfront Restaurant at The Walvis Bay Waterfront we had a bit of a mixed experience. Our lunch started off on a high note, with a beautiful view from our table, tasty starters and drinks, and live music creating a great...atmosphere. However, after starters, we started experiencing a couple of problems. Our main course took a long time to arrive, and by the time it did, some of the dishes were already cold. This was probably due to the slow and unattentive service, and I have to note that the restaurant wasn't extremely busy when we were there. The manager did offer to replace the cold dishes, which we really appreciated, but we declined the offer. One of our group, who had had octopus before and really enjoyed it, found the octopus she ordered at Anchors to be tough. After paying the bill, we mentioned to the staff that the octopus was tough, at which they became very defensive. This was a disappointing end to a promising lunch. Overall, we left with a negative impression of Anchors Waterfront Restaurant, which was very surprising, given that friends of ours had such a positive experience there.More
