Our group drove 35km to Knysna for New Year Mitchell's Draught and oysters. Although they advertise Mitchell's Beer on tap on a card on the table we were told that they don't stock it anymore. That was strike one. Then we tried to order oysters. There were none, apparently because of red tide, but we weren't told this when we arrived. After that we paid for the drinks and left for another venue 2 minutes walk away where we had the experience we originally wanted.
We won't go back to Quay Four.

Deciding that quay four is a safe bet for dinner in Knysna we went in got seating and it was quite full. Only a few tables were available. After being seated for about 5-10 minutes i called one of the waiters over and asked for the cocktail menu for my wife. He then told me they only have 5 and started naming a few. We then asked what goes in the one, then he said he will be rite back, never to be seen again. Luckily another waiter came and we could ask for a cocktail menu again to which she brings us a list of about 20. We order and after about another 15min she comes and asks if she can take a food order, we order food and she takes the menu's away and we ask if we can keep the cocktail menu as we would like another then she says we can't, they have no more ice for us. So that put an end to that. Cocktails were average. Ate a Kilo of Prawns that were really good.

I like to think I am pretty laid back but the service here is slow that I would recommend ordering your food the day before you actually want to eat it. It only gets a three because the location is amazing.

Four items that we ordered were not available, while three of them were advertised inside and outside restaurant. Atmosphere is poor, barren and cold. If it wasn't for the location this place would have been bankrupt long ago. Service is very slow and very, very poor, and our waiter had the attitude of "if you don't like it here, then leave". Which is exactly what our party of seven did.
