We always make a point of eating at Brian's unpretentious but excellent restaurant. This has to be the best fish in Knysna, always served by friendly and enthusiastic staff. Top class.

We have been to Anchorage frequently before... it is one of the better places in Kynsna to enjoy a decent dinner. This time, despite calling six (!) times, we did not get a reservation. In the mornings we were told to call in the evenings, and in the evenings they were too busy to take reservations so we were asked... More

The four of us went for dinner on our first night in Knysna having visited on past occasions over the years. There is a good variety of fish on the menu but carnivores are also well taken care of. In addition to the extensive menu they have a board with several specials to chose from every night..

Here I felt the clear... More

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Anchorage. The calamari steak was fresher than any I had ever eaten. We also have several great local wine recommendations from our very knowledgeable server. We opted for seafood, but meat lovers / vegetarians would not be disappointed. We highly recommend.

We were recommended here by our accommodation and were pleased with our choice of fish for dinner. Staff were very friendly though one started talking SA politics which, as a guest in the country, I did not feel comfortable with. A busy place with clean toilets and a good menu.

Reservation required as this restaurant serves excellent range of food from steaks to line caught fish and seafood and is always busy. Extra tables out on the pavement for late bookers.
