Reasonably priced with a good selection of dishes. Great staff! Sunday night BBQ with entertainment is money well spent.

We arrived really late in Rarotonga and all the restaurants were closed, including this one. In spite of this they reopened the kitchen and made us dinner. The food was just amazing !!!

We ate here a few times as we were staying at the resort. Food was very tasty but a little bit expensive. The girls serving were very attentive and helpful.

We have eaten at the Anchorage a number of time and this time came to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The staff seemed friendly apart from what might have been the head maitre'd. This woman seemed very bolshie - bossing around the girls who appeared to be doing a good job anyway. She looked like she was picking on them for... More

I had forgotten insect repellant and was told they did not have any. I was surprised as even causal cafes on the island always seemed to have some. Personally I prefer... More

When we finally got menus the food was good but perhaps a little overpriced, the service was average. There's not a lot to say about this place as it... More

We were staying nearby at the Edgewater and thought the BBQ sounded like a nice change. One thing they don't tell you is that you may well have to sit with strangers. We were put with another couple at a table for 4, they turned out to also be Kiwis and we all got on all right, plus bumped into... More
