Atmosphere was pleasant and joint table we sat on was very spacious. The menu sounded nice, but when it came down to it we had fish and chips. We ordered two desserts and only received one, venue was also a little dark in certain spots.

David knows his fish. The smoked fish arancini and the ceviche were delish, The mains of grilled and tempura kingfish were good too. Packed on the Monday night. Only open Mon and Thurs.

After a few marvellous meals at the Anchorage we thought we would try Greenback Eatery. We enjoy seafood and weren't put off by the advice that it is a seafood only restaurant. On arrival, I was a bit surprised that the meal was a $59...More
