The restaurant location is just perfect. Very nice food and very quick service. We had lunch twice there and was never disappointed. We sat outside both times and we could spot pelicans and seals from our table.

We'd heard good things about Anchors and knew it was *very* close to where our cruise ship was docked. The cab drivers quoted me 400 Namibian. Absurd price. I found out they shouldn't ask for more than 40. Easy walk from the ship -- ten...More

The best beer battered hake and calamari that we ever had!! You taste the beer! Absolutely scrumptious - we will definitely be back for more and more! Ended our lunch with a lovely slice of fresh and delicious cookies and cream cake.

The food was decent for the price but the atmosphere and location of the restaurant more than made up for the food. Great day time restaurant!

Loved the grilled prawns and calamari with garlic butter. Fresh oysters are not to be missed too. Servings are huge and a platter for 2 can easily be a meal for 3-4! Malava pudding is a must-have to end off your meal! Great place to...More
