Food was fantastic, local band provided great dinner music and the entertainment of dancers was great - reservations are a must and this shouldn't be missed.

We went for a walk from our resort and found this gem. It is tucked down a long drive and located between resorts. Don't be put off by the fact that it is not beachfront, the garden setting is lovely. Our service was efficient and very friendly. The food and presentation was of exceptional quality. Hands down this was the... More

We stayed at the Sunset Resort and ate here a couple of times. We did the BBQ night which was pretty good, I think it was about $30 and had a pretty good variety of food.

Had a meal here mid-week and recommend it. Interesting menu at reasonable prices, with friendly staff who made us feel welcome. Reasonably well patronised for a wet and windy night. What more could you want?

Came here on BBQ night which in hindsight was probably a mistake. Despite booking for a time to see the sunset (not seen from the restaurant itself) we had to wait for the BBQ to be opened and then queue with the rest of the diners. The food was OK but we felt it was overpriced for what we got... More

The food and service were second to none on the Island ( and indeed anywhere). We ate at a number of restaurants but the food at the Anchorage could not be beaten. All meals at various times of the day. The food was fresh and cooked to perfection. Thank you to the staff for their friendly service and excellent food.

Had breakfast here every morning - good selection. Their snack menu is great and reasonable. The BBQ and night show was great but food a bit average
