Very good restaurant. We are in Seychelles and, of course, you cant ask what they have not. So, the fish is very good, the service is a bit slow, the list of wine insufficient.

Good food, the blackened fish is perfect and the best I have eaten, octopus salad also a firm favorite.

I had the Blackened Fish at this little roadside restaurant a month ago and I'm still thinking of it! it is a shame that I live 7000 miles away from the Anchor Cafe or I would go back in a heart beat... Good service and good food in a casual setting, very recommendable!

All meals at this restaurant have been good. They have a good variety of dishes and the staff are friendly. Food comes out quickly and portions and med-big. Never had a bad meal here.

Wait staff is indifferent. Be aware they won't substitute anything on the menu. The only vegetarian item was Vegetable Curry which I had had earlier in the day so I just had fries. The waitress made a point of letting us know that since we came at 5 minutes to 9:00 pm we were lucky that they took us. There... More

Go there if you are starving and there is literally no other option (that's how we ended up there), prepare for the mindbogglingly slow service and sky-high prices. It's basically a shack (needs maintenance!) but you pay like you visited a proper restaurant. Paying 10% for the slowest service in the world is sick. Just include the damn VAT and... More

We had lunch at the Anchor during our road trip around Mahe. Quant cafe and nice food, but on island time so don't be in a rush to get your food! I had fish and chips which were fresh and tasty. My hubby had chicken nuggets which were not as good!

Soon found out why. we were offered a menu after about 5 minutes of smiling at the staff. When we siad we only wanted coffee they about turned... More

You would expect fresh fish in a restaurant at the beach, instead of surimi. Octopus salad, way overcooked. Still expensive.
