Located within Sunset Resort we found this little oasis of goodness! Read through TA comments and decided to locate - just past Edgewater (top left hand side of island). Thoroughly enjoyable experience. Fresh fish. Chunky chowder. Thank you.

The Anchorage is an open-sided restaurant, perfect for the ambient temperature on Rarotonga. The menu is comprehensive and the staff are friendly and very helpful. My tuna was seared to perfection, seasoned well and nicely pink inside. The Sunday night barbecue was plentiful and tasty,...More

Easily one of the best restaurants in Rarotonga - the food was high quality, interesting and diverse. The smoked marlin soup was a highlight for sure! Ate at this restaurant multiple times, as the service was also excellent.

We dined a couple of times at this restaurant located onsite of our resort. The food was always fresh and flavoursome with a great variety to the menu. The staff were always friendly and we can recommend this place without hesitation.

We ate at this restaurant several times during our stay on Rarotonga. The food was always of a very high standard. Tasty, fresh, beautifully cooked and presented. Would highly recommend the pork ribs, pork belly (crackling to die for), ika mata and the creme brûlée....More

A bit pricy but the food is pretty decent and the food presentation is immaculate. Highly suggest the maniota fries. Delicious.

We are regular visitors to Rarotonga and always book into the Anchorage for dinner. We always have the seafood chowder, for a main is a very large bowl and entree(photo) is filling but absolutely delicious! Always check the specials board too. The meals are all...More

My wife and I visited this restaurant three times due to the convenience of being connected to the Sunset Resort where we were staying. The food was delicious and plentiful, but service was spotty. Our final night it was not up to par.
