Title says it all. Great location right on the waterfront, Food however is really substandard, greasy, unappetizing. Really this could be a great destination but even teh seating is very basic, in summary a good location spoilt by the detail. Cant recommend for food.

Quay 4 is always on the list when in Cape Town. Excellent seafood at a very reasonable price. Great setting overlooking the harbour. Highly recommended.

“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.
