We went to this restaurant because of it's proximity to the waterfront and our hotel. We were pleased with the menu selection and with the quality of food we received. Personally I was very happy with the large bee selection.

The location is great -- right on the water front. The service was good. There is a wide range of food and everyone in our group enjoyed their meal. The wine was good, but what set Den Anker apart was the range of beers. It is hard to find a restaurant in Cape Town that has dark beer and Den Anker had several.

It was our anniversary in May, and we decided on a bit of exploring in Cape Town. We ended up having a Belgian beer at Den Anker and were then told about a winter special on their mussels. We ordered the 2kg mussels and what an amazing dish. It felt like a place in Brussels! Service was excellent and the setting fantastic. Can recommend!

We visited on Father's day.A very nice gesture to the Fathers: a complimentary glass of beer! We had a variety of dishes between the 9 of us...from Trout to Steak and everyone was very satisfied with their dish. I was a bit dissapointed by their steak tartare. To little condiments and the meat was neither cut in small blocks or minced, rather a solid "blob" of meat . Never the less will visit again.Our waitron Franschwa a star!

This is a really lovely place in a superb position. It was lovely to try some of the many beers, pairing them, on advise by our waiter with our menu choices.
