The Anchorage is well located, opening at 0800 hrs daily. I had good coffee at opening time, some lunches 3 evening meals. All food was of very good standard, in fact the first lamb meal was outstanding. Food and drinks at all restaurants etc are more expensive than the mainland due mostly to transport costs

This located central in village. So it's iconic eating space for 3 meals. Looks like cafe and bakery in day time. But turn to casual but fancy restaurant at night. Taste is nice. Stuff is friendly. Open almost all days. So very convenient, too.

We dined here half a dozen times during our recent stay, for lunch and dinner. They have a great selection of food and wine and everything was so tasty and fresh and cooked to perfection.

We had a few meals here during our stay and the food itself was actually quite good. Breakfast seemed more chaotic than the other meals and when capable Kaz wasn't there, service really fell apart. On our last morning only half our breakfast order turned up and staff couldn't seem to care less. The restaurant has a lot of potential... More

We initially happened upon this restaurant by chance, dropping in for what ended up being no ordinary pepper steak pie with chips and salad for lunch. So good was lunch, we came back for dinner - and what a dinner it was! Black Angus beef, seafood salad, cheesecake and panna cotta, all delivered with impeccable service by staff clearly in... More

Nice food. Slightly overpriced - compared to our meals. The Pizza and Pasta night was better than the Al la carte menu in my view.

I had breakfast, lunch and a few dinners here on a recent trip. Every meal was excellent with great presentation. (you do eat with your eyes). The bircher muesli was one of the best I have ever had. Great home made pies too.

The Anchorage seems to be a bit of a hub on Lord Howe Island. It's popular with locals and visitors, and the food is great. The menu isn't extensive, but what they do, they do well. They are also the bakery for the Island, and have a range of breads, cakes, danishes and muffins available daily. The BEST panna cotta!... More

We ended up here numerous times. Location is in the centre of the island next to other shops. You can see the lagoon from most tables.
