The price for the food is very descent. The food was well prepared and the service was good. We moved from one area to another and got a new waiter that also did an excellent job.

This is a terrace restaurant serving local seafood with views over the harbour. And a live band singing. We had hake and chips and kings lip and salad. Both meals were nice and couldn’t fault them. Good value for money. And a quick service.

“One of the oldest landmark restaurants in the charming V&A Waterfront, Quay Four boasts two distinct restaurants.”Downstairs, the world famous Tavern buzzes with locals and visitors virtually all year round. Seating 380 people, the Tavern's adjoining terrace fringes the Harbour, and is ideal to enjoy a meal and to sip cold beer as the sun sets. The elegantly adorned upstairs restaurant places emphasis on fresh seafood with the al la carte menu also including irresistible meat and poultry dishes.
