This restaurant was recommended to my parents and me by a former visitor of Costambar. It's a small place with a diverse menu from breakfast to lunch to dinner. The owner served us and was very friendly, but not intrusive. My noodles with shrimp in a cream sauce was delicious. One downside was that the kitchen forgot to put cheese... More

In this small community, we didn't expect to find such delicious food that Anchor's serves. This very quaint hole-in-the-wall offers a very varied dinner menu. The well priced food is delicious. Everything is homemade, and fresh. No pre-cooked stuff here. You can also get a decent bottle of wine. What we had was first-rate: chicken cordon bleu, schnitzel with mushroom... More

They speak English which is always a bonus if you no speaky Spanish mucho. However, if you go when it's busy you will discover a cloud of tobacco smoke (maybe not just tobacco) billowing out of...

They have a great menu with lots of offerings. Marlon and his family were so friendly and attentive. Food was very good, but my French toast was a little over done...on the verge of black and crispy. Everyone else's food in my group was great.

The Anchor is a small spot with a large menu. We stopped one evening. My husband was hungry and ordered the Schnitzel with mashed potatoes but I was not hungry. With their menu I was able to order eggs and bacon. Everything was made fresh and was very good. We ordered two Cuba Libres while we waited and they were... More

The food is great. Our go-to spot for breakfast lunch and dinner because of the variety, good food, and pricing. About $10 less expensive to feed a family of 5 than other places. Easy walk from our villa. Very very friendly owner. He will help out with any questions you may have for the area.
