Three of us stopped by to Den Anker as it had been recommended not only for the location (right on the harbour in W&A), but also because they served the best bowl of Moules.

The recommendation wasnt wrong - the bowl was substantial and absolutely filling. The moules were fresh and the sauce devine.

I also managed to have a few bottles of wine leisurely in the restaurant afterwards whilst shooting the breeze with my friends. I would recommend the Chardonnay Jordan.

We visited Den Anker for lunch. Although the restaurant was busy we were seated and served quickly.

We were lucky to have a table right by the window which had great views looking towards Table Mountain. We both ordered the wagyu burger which came with chips and béarnaise sauce. The food was of a good standard, and there was also a great selection of Belgian beers to choose from. Our waiter was really helpful and attentive.

Overall a great experience and this was one of the best value meals we had during our time in Cape Town - we would definitely visit a second time.

Myself and my wife are travelling South Africa on our honeymoon. We visited Den Anker early one evening for a drink and some dinner and was not disappointed.
The mussels were delicious and so were the fish and chips. Along with the wine and beer and the sunset on the waterfront. Perfect evening. Great service. Thank you for a great experience.

Nice wiev towards the Table Mountain, Lion Head and Signal Hill by the sea / harbour. Reasonably prized restsurant and we enjoyed good Café latte. Service was somewhat unfriendly, which was surprising because people and service is mostly very friendly in Capetown.

We booked Den Anker for NYE and we had a most fantastic evening. Apart from the fact that Den Anker is a prime location, there was so much attention to detail like NYE hats, a photo booth, bubbly and tempura prawns on arrival so that NYE was truly spectacular. The menu included an oyster and crayfish bar as well as scallops and salmon or fillet as a main. Professional and friendly staff. Thank you everybody and we will be back soon.
