Then let the knowledgeable staff lead you through the award-winning menu, matched at every step with top-shelf wines. Oceanic options include baby octopus, luscious lobster and fresh king prawns, with elegant meat and game dishes as well as bright seasonal salads to balance. Finish off with a fruity panna cotta or Belgian chocolate semifreddo, and you’ll be among the ranks of discerned diners claiming the Anchorage Restaurant as one of the best.
