We are beer aficionados and were excited to learn about Den Anker. We made a reservation for Christmas Eve dinner there and it was an experience to remember.
Den Anker is a Belgian beer bar on the Victoria and Albert Waterfront in Cape Town. Beautiful water views, so try to get a window table (if you are inside) if you can. Their outside tables face west and Table Mountain, so it is a popular spot to have a sundowner. Go early to secure your table (or make a reservation) for this, as it gets really crowded.
Their beer list is heaven for a beer lover. They are well known for serving Kwak in a special Kwak glass. The glass is so special that you have to give up your left shoe as collateral when you order it! Did we do this? Of course! How could we NOT? It's great to watch the reactions of people at nearby tables when they don't know why you are giving up your shoe.
Our dinner of filet mignon and chateaubriand, followed by cheesecake and chocolate mousse, was delicious. We enjoyed the experience so much that we returned again later in our trip. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
