A fabulous location let down by the bad management of an incorrect drink - clearly the customer is never right here! Tried to embarrass me into accepting a drink that was not mine and then also tried to charge incorrectly. The state of the toilets...More

I will not lie and say that I had the best steak ever at Quay Four! So juicy, tender and cooked to perfection. For starters, I had the mouth-watering jalapeño poppers which were also delicious.

A great buzz with the live music and happy dancing staff. Everyone was smiling including the chefs. Great drinks too.

Common theme in Cape Town so far, after 24hrs, is service is generally slow! However between the Chateaubriand and the Cote de Boeuf, the meat is startlingly good. Definite worth a visit

Good location on the harbour but only mediocre food. Good wines. Service erratic, staff rushed off their feet and couldn’t keep up with demand. Lively atmosphere.

“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.
