“Wasn't bad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

Came here for dinner on Thu Mar 27..... Waitress wasn't overly friendly but passable service wise. Had the Chicken Boisciana which was like a carbonara and ended up having a chocolate cake for dessert.

Place seemed relatively empty for a resort.

“Food was delicious and exceptional!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014

Vi our waitress was so helpful and truly genuine. Nice to see her smiling every morning. She was giving us special advice as to places to go & see. My husband commented that the food in Anchorage was the best in the island. The chef made fish (yellowtail of some sort) as if he knew all different ways to make fish with the right amount of island spices. The local varieties were a hit, kept me coming back for more. The vegetables, eggs and fish were so fresh and local I had fish almost every day from here.

“Pleasant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2014

I ate here for lunch one day and the place was almost deserted. I really enjoyed the seared tuna salad and the local Matutu lager has a real beer flavour - delicious to wash the food down on a warm day! Being almost the only one there, service was excellent and friendly in the usual island manner.

“Superb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014

Just returned from a weeks holiday at Sunset Resort.We dined here almost every night, because we just did not want to chance missing out on the wonderful food.We caught some Tuna on a charter and took it to the chef, and he prepared it a couple of ways for us,and it was the best fish I'd had all week.All other meals were just as memorable,with the bar staff and waitresses doing a standout job.Tony runs a great restaurant.Do yourselves a favour and eat here.

“Disappointed.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2014

We visited The Anchorage Restaurant and Bar for lunch one day. It was VERY hot and stuffy and although the staff put the fan on, it would have been more helpful to open up the sides of the restaurant.

We will all very disappointed with our meals. Not at all impressed. Won't be coming back again.
