We had a good time at Anchore. We were glad with the advised that the servant Benjamin gave about the menu. After the dinner we had interesting talks about the culture, behavior and the politics in this Country.

We enjoyed all the food, oysters, line fish with very good service. Highly recommended! This place is great but has no view of the sea.
