We had a few meals here during our stay and the food itself was actually quite good. Breakfast seemed more chaotic than the other meals and when capable Kaz wasn't there, service really fell apart. On our last morning only half our breakfast order turned up and staff couldn't seem to care less. The restaurant has a lot of potential... More

We initially happened upon this restaurant by chance, dropping in for what ended up being no ordinary pepper steak pie with chips and salad for lunch. So good was lunch, we came back for dinner - and what a dinner it was! Black Angus beef, seafood salad, cheesecake and panna cotta, all delivered with impeccable service by staff clearly in... More

Nice food. Slightly overpriced - compared to our meals. The Pizza and Pasta night was better than the Al la carte menu in my view.

I had breakfast, lunch and a few dinners here on a recent trip. Every meal was excellent with great presentation. (you do eat with your eyes). The bircher muesli was one of the best I have ever had. Great home made pies too.

The Anchorage seems to be a bit of a hub on Lord Howe Island. It's popular with locals and visitors, and the food is great. The menu isn't extensive, but what they do, they do well. They are also the bakery for the Island, and have a range of breads, cakes, danishes and muffins available daily. The BEST panna cotta!... More

We ended up here numerous times. Location is in the centre of the island next to other shops. You can see the lagoon from most tables. Outside tables as well as inside and if its raining they don't mind you hanging around for a few hours to read a book and chill out. Breakfast was delicious, good coffee, good choice... More

Outstanding for dinner at night with a creative delicious menu that varies during the week. Also a great place for something to eat any time of the day. Fresh bread and muffins cooked fresh overnight each day.The only meal we did not try was their breakfast. Efficient friendly staff and a great view over the lagoon.

We had a good evening meal after having been visitors early for coffee. The Black Angus Steak was good as was the pasta dish, though I did not particularly like the sauce with the steak.

Thanks for taking the time to review us! We are disappointed to hear you didn't like the sauce on your Black Angus - personal preference?
