This is our go to restaurant for family meals. We have only ever been in the afternoon when it tends to be quiet. The food is still good, plentiful and reasonable priced. The drinks and deserts are a bit expensive. Service is excellent, however we did book in advance for a party of 8 and there were only two other... More

We called here on the way back from Victoria after a day trip to Praslin Island so were hungry and casually dressed. Simple decor and menu but lovely food and attentive service from all staff. My mum had the sail fish which was a huge portion and very tasty. I had the fish curry which was mildly spicy and aromatic.

Very good restaurant. We are in Seychelles and, of course, you cant ask what they have not. So, the fish is very good, the service is a bit slow, the list of wine insufficient.

I had the Blackened Fish at this little roadside restaurant a month ago and I'm still thinking of it! it is a shame that I live 7000 miles away from the Anchor Cafe or I would go back in a heart beat... Good service and good food in a casual setting, very recommendable!

All meals at this restaurant have been good. They have a good variety of dishes and the staff are friendly. Food comes out quickly and portions and med-big. Never had a bad meal here.

Wait staff is indifferent. Be aware they won't substitute anything on the menu. The only vegetarian item was Vegetable Curry which I had had earlier in the day so I just had fries. The waitress made a point of letting us know that since we came at 5 minutes to 9:00 pm we were lucky that they took us. There... More

Go there if you are starving and there is literally no other option (that's how we ended up there), prepare for the mindbogglingly slow service and sky-high prices. It's basically a shack (needs maintenance!) but you pay like you visited a proper restaurant. Paying 10% for the slowest service in the world is sick. Just include the damn VAT and... More
