Had a nice meal at Anchorage the other day. Couldn't eat it all but I gave it a good effort! My friends enjoyed their meals too. Friendly and fast service.

We just happened to drop in for coffee to look at the resort for a future visit then saw the menu for dinner so booked that as well. We also booked for breakfast a couple of days later. Better value for money than where we were staying at OTB. Decent size meal for the same money. You won't leave hungry.... More

We attended The Anchorage tonight, knowing that given it was Easter Friday it would be busy. After 10 minutes we ordered. After waiting for a while, another waitress asked if we ordered drinks as our table was bare. We then had to re-order our water and cocktails. We both ordered a mojito as menu said made with dark rum. Not... More

We stayed at this resort and ate here on two nights. The food was great. The BBQ night was an enjoyable night. Start off with a cocktail and sit by the beach and watch the sunset.

We had the Sunday BBQ at Anchorage. The buffet style was very nice with lots of local food choices and the entertainment was good. It was a nice introduction to the island.

Tony and his staff need to be commended. The setting is top notch and so is the steak. Even with no reservation our group of 5 plus two young ones were made to feel welcome and in rushed. Just a pleasant experience all round.

The restaurant is attached to (but not owned by) the Sunset Resort where we were staying. Sunday is the day many restaurants are closed so This local hostelry was an automatic choice. It was BBQ nite and we expected the average BBQ buffet. We got no such thing! There was a choice of multiple salads, Fish(Tuna!) Steak, Chicken and Sausage,... More

Open till 3pm for lunch is good if you want something later in the day, most other restaurants close at 2pm. Good choices - the wrap and fried chicken were excellent
