Small restaurant, fisher s boat style decorated. Overpriced winelist, staff trying to sell most expensive fish food and oysters. Mediocre quality, fish overcooked.

We had been to this restaurant before and enjoyed it so as we were there with family we went again and we were not disappointed. The service was exceptional and our waiter was very knowledgeable. A great family meal and great value.

We always make a point of eating at Brian's unpretentious but excellent restaurant. This has to be the best fish in Knysna, always served by friendly and enthusiastic staff. Top class.

We have been to Anchorage frequently before... it is one of the better places in Kynsna to enjoy a decent dinner. This time, despite calling six (!) times, we did not get a reservation.

The four of us went for dinner on our first night in Knysna having visited on past occasions over the years. There is a good variety of fish on the menu but carnivores are also well taken care of. In addition to the extensive menu they have a board with several specials to chose from every night..

TripAdvisor helps a lot, otherwise we wouldn't have found this extraordinary restaurant. The atmosphere inside is good, the perfect waiters (especially Benjamin) very caring and helpful (never got such an good explanation how to eat oysters), tremendously good kitchen (a perfekt gurnard, called Knurrhahn in german), delicious desert, very good whines and tasty local gin. Here I felt the clear... More
