If this restaurant were any closer to the sea then we would be sitting with our feet in the sand. Plenty of secure parking and all the tables have a sea view. It was full on both nights we were there, and there was a...good vibe. A lot of the younger crowd there. The service was efficient and friendly and the menu was reasonably extensive. Good value. I had spare ribs which were good but my partner ordered a well done steak .... which was indeed very well done!! Will certainly eat there againMore

Brilliant spot - food great, location spectacular. What really makes in is Tekkies and the staff. Nothing is too much trouble - entertaining and helpful. And they adhere to the covid regulations sensibly and do their best to ensure everyone is safe and happy

As we entered the restaurant the waitress Megan touched my infants hand which I felt terribly uncomfortable with in light of the global covid 19 pandemic. The food was below average My mother in law found a long black hair in her food I also...found a hair in my food Would not recommendMore

I had a cheeseburger and a draught beer. The burger patty held together without been too tight or tough, not overcooked. It was grilled over a wood fire so it had a great smokey flavour. The bun was fresh and buttered the tomato, onion and...lettuce was crisp and fresh. The chips were awesome. Hand cut. Small ones crispy and golden brown, bigger ones crisp on the outside creamy soft in the center. Best I’ve had in years. The venue was clean and genuine. The view can be described as billionaire class. I loved the kite surfing show they had this afternoon. A huge wow. The service was efficient friendly and smiley. The hosts were on the floor attentive to both customers and operations. It’s nice to see professionals working their business. My only suggestion would be for them to toast the burger buns. Thanks The Anchorage, see you tomorrow.More

My wife and I travelled to Witsand from Swellendam and called in for a quick lunch at the Anchorage Restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the Calimari that we had. We thoroughly enjoyed the food - thanks very much. The owner...also went out of his way to point us in the right directions for other attractions in the area.More

We took a quick day trip to Witsand after the holiday rush and although the weather was overcast and the wind blowing a bit, we had a truly wonderful day on the beach. We dropped in to the Anchorage for lunch, and were pleasantly surprised!...The waitrons were attentative (although they disappeared for a while once we received our food and the food was awesome! Two plates of tasty and tender calamari, one seriously good fish in (beer?) batter and chicken nuggets and chips for the kid. All cooked to perfection and the portions were ample. Witsand now has a special place in my heart, and when I am next there, I will certainly return to The Anchorage.More
