Service was absolutely flawless! They had a very extensive knowledge of their menu and recommended items based off this. They knew what everything tasted like and what would pair well together. Food was very nice and the price is unbeatable. Would definitely recommend to anyone...looking for affordable quality local food.More

Probably the best restaurant in Knysna. Fish well cooked and Sacha certainly knows his stuff. Ambience a bit dated but like all restaurants in Knysna , they are finding their feet after lockdown. A bit pricey but you do get good food.

This was a return visit after 2 years away and it was as good as ever. The mussels and Greek salad starters were adequate, not overwhelming, and really good. The fish mains - kingclip and a duo of calamares and gurnard - were perfectly cooked...and delicious. The sauvignon blanc was inexpensive and very good. The service was friendly and attentive. The restaurant is simply but tastefully furnished and is very comfortable.More

An excellent find! From the outside so unassuming but don't be fooled. The food was excellent, lovely atmosphere and the price so reasonable. Definitely worth a visit

So good. A warm welcome from Sasha and great recommendations for the food and beer. Ostrich cooked perfectly and with lovely fresh veg. Calamari tasty and fresh. A lovely calm atmosphere with happy guests. The best place we have found in Knysna by far.

The place was half empty when we arrived. Not a good sign when all other restaurants in town were close to packed. The food was substandard and the service not up to par. Wouldn’t go there again.

One of the best places for Dinner. Anchorage has a sublime menu with some of the best cooked fish and most delicious desserts. With great food and friendly staff, we will always come back for a good dinner experience.
