We had an excellent experience. Food, services and ambience is outstanding. It is a shame we cannot enjoy the place more often, as we are visitors from Switzerland.

Poor service, very slow. First two choices of main not available even though I’d ordered the wine to go with my first choice main and told the waiter this. They served the wine but only advised no main choice when we went to order food....First choice of dessert also not available - not the best experience better restaurants in the harbour.More

My wife and I dined here. We were warmly greeted by Sacha, a knowledgeable and uber-efficient waiter (who may also be the owner(?)) whose enthusiasm is boundless. We indulged ourselves with a shared Mozambique Tiger Prawn, some Springbok shanks and a West Coast Sole. All...fabulously delicious. Be determined not to miss this when visiting Knysna.More

Our friends have been on holiday in Knysna several times and have been here a few times. The food was very tasty. We had the Kingklip. Terrific. The service was great too. Samantha served us. She did this for the first time today and was...very friendly, polite and accommodating. Sasha was very attentive and helpful. Nice atmosphere. Unreservedly recommended.More

Tasty food, excellent service from Sash, and the Creme Brule is to die for! Had the steak, and it was cooked exactly as I had asked it to be. The sauce was divine, the veggies tasty and not over cooked. Not kid friendly, but the...kids' food was good. The portions are perfect.More

The food was absolutely delicious so much so we returned the next night. We had the Kingklip which was the best we have had and the Mozambique prawns that were very special. The service was great too - Sash was very knowledgeable and engaging and...recommended a great wine to go with our food.More

Everything really great, but lost a star for the deserts. Great service from the two waters we had. I can recommend the snails with a garlic and roquefort cheese. Biggest and best tasting I've had. The restaurant is cozy, but a little tired. Can't beat...the service. Thanks for looking after us.More

We visited on a busy Sunday night, without a reservation. Whilst they were fully booked they worked hard to find a space for us. We enjoyed every aspect of the meal, particularly the super fresh fish of the day dish. Thoroughly recommend this excellent restaurant.

My partner loves Oysters and when we were looking for somewhere to eat on our first night in town . The owner showed us the size of the Oysters he had just taken delivery off . We made a booking there and then . His...verdict was that these were the best freshest , neatest Oysters he had ever tasted. The amazing dining experience didn’t stop there he had the grilled Mozambique prawns which again chef/owner brought to the table prior to cooking to give him the option of these or king prawns that were also on the menu. I really enjoyed the line fish . In fact we enjoyed both main courses so much we came much the next night and had exactly the same dishes. The restaurant was busy but the service was excellent on both occasions. We had walked across to the island and also looked at restaurants on the Quays but we were so happy we found the Anchorage. Thanks againMore

What a great experience as usual. This establishment has the best fish in town. The other items on the menu are also very delicious, but tonight is fish night. Thanks for the excellent service and food. See you soon.

Eye-opening fresh fish food! Try Giant Tiger Prawns for something special, but ask for Sasha to have great explanation on what eat and drink. The Fisheagle Lodge Italian.
