in a recent visit to Walvis Bay we decided on a cold winters morning to have lunch at this establishment, but after ordering coffee from the gentlemen behind the counter, having been blatantly rude to my wife, we decided to extend our stay, finished our...More

Wonderful, huge and generous, perfectly crispy fish and chips! With an awesome view of the quaint but buzzing harbour. Visited by seagulls! ENjoying the crisp June air and the delicious cappucinos! Will have to be back for the calamari!

Menu has been reduced in the last months, for someone living in Walvis Bay it turns out monotonous, but somehow still pleasant. But that is all about the atmosphere of the place... close to the lagoon and with seals and pelicans passing by occasionally.More

This is a great restaurant. They have quite a wide variety of food to choose from their menu. The calamari that I had was delicious. We had a great ocean view. I would recommend making a reservation beforehand.

The restaurant is in the harbor where the dolphin cruises etc depart. The setting is unique and sitting inside or outside looking over the harbor is a treat. The service is not great but we were there at an odd time.

Choice in fish in the Anchor is limited, we think Raft is better. Friendly and decent but we missed the variety in fresh fish which you would expect. Everything straightforward fried or grilled. Wine choice very limited, again Raft has better choice.
