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.

On our recent visit to LHI we dined at the Anchorage more than once. It became our go to restaurant. We had breakfast, lunch and dinner there at different times on our weeks holiday. Each time we dined the service was very friendly, the food was very good and we also enjoyed some nice wines. They also have a bakery... More

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. The fries were great. The wine was expensive for a rather ordinary bottle. In a table for two only one of you may be able... More

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? Please note all produce including wines is imported so freight costs must be factored in to our costs. Also, not sure what you would like us to do about your comment re the view -... More

The Anchorage is situated in the central part of the island near the lagoon beach. It is open 7 days from breakfast at 8:00 until later in the evening for dinner. There is an extensive dinner menu which includes a number of choices if you do want a change from the local seafood. We all enjoyed our choices very much.... More

This place is wonderful as it is open 7 days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The food is excellent and although expensive is great quality. The coffee is the best on the island that we experienced. The muffins and bakery goods are excellent and we loved their sour dough bread. We ate there for dinner a couple of... More

The Achorage is very centrally located and is open all day for eat-in or take-away. There is a bakery with fresh breads, pies, muffins. Fresh salad rolls were great for lunch. We enjoyed one evening meal there. Staff were generally very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately there was the odd exception (dreadlocks, anyone?) who seemed to find it all a bit... More

We went to the Anchorage daily for coffee, lunch or dinner. All meals were superb, especially the Blue Eyed Cod. There was always gluten free cakes and meals for my husband (even gf pizza on the pasta and pizza night) and gf bread loaves could be ordered the day before. Such a great meeting place for the wedding guests.
