This little restaurant on the river delivers a top notch delightful experience. The staff are super friendly and funny. We ate the seafood platter which was fresh and delicious and the cocktails were made to perfection. We will definitely be dropping in again on our next trip to Urunga.

Thank you Meg and Kate for making yesterday so very memorable, you were both so delightful, so welcoming and we had such a special day. The food was fantastic, I would highly recommend Table Smoked Prawns & WA Octopus & the XO Prawns - delicious. We will defiantly be back - next time with a few friends. Thank you again and thank the wonderful chefs and other staff they all seemed to be enjoying their jobs on a super busy day.

We visit Urunga yearly and this is our fave breaky spot while in town. We came a few times for breakfast this trip and really enjoyed ourselves.The view is stunning, the service is warm and the coffee is excellent. We even saw a dolphin in the river once!This trip we decided to try the cafe for lunch too. However, we much prefer breakfast.Lunch was pleasant but not standout. We ordered scallops and would have preferred them to be the hero of the dish - too many other conflicting, strong flavours drowned them out. XO prawns could be a star dish but way too oily and a little confused (trying to achieve a Spanish/Asian fusion but not quite hitting the mark). Oysters with the Asian dressing had a great flavour but chilli was dialed up way too much which didn't balance with the fresh oysters (and I'm good with chilli!). Would also be nice to get the full half or dozen (Anchors does servings of either 5 or 10 oysters). Steak sandwich was good and Cocktails were great and we really did have a lovely lunch. What a spot! Lunch was $200 for two people, two cocktails, two wines.Well worth the visit!!

We had a family meal for 6, the staff were attentive and present , the place was clean and present , the view was excellent it was right next to the water, the menu was accommodating for all , food, cakes, coffee , bar and drinks, they have it all. It’s not cheap but it’s fair, food was worth it and they made our night, everything was good

Food was delicious, the maple baked beans were a treat. The coffee was top notch strength and flavour.Service was good, not the best though. Had to ask where our slice of cake was after waiting 10mins for it. It wasn’t that busy (maybe 30%) - so was slow for my liking. But other than that, good.Atmosphere was great on the deck, so nice next to the river.

What an absolute gem of a place! We loved it so much we went 2 days in a row! The waiters were exceptional! Every staff member we interacted with were happy and bubbly and so easy to talk too. We felt so welcomed! And that is so hard to find when dining out! The food was exceptional! We tried the Chicken burger, calamari, fish and the red empora thai curry. Absolutely delicious! The atmosphere is so peaceful and view is breath taking. When we visit urunga again we will be back :)
