The service is okey and the food also. Pretty cheap and perfect for grabbing some sushi for lunch. But i would pick another place for dinner

Was looking for easy meal. Went to Quay 4. Really great tasting hake & calamari combos. Fair price and good value for money. Nice vibe with live musicians. Recommend

Enjoyed a deck side meal of Catch of the Day with a side of Seafood Chowder. Service was exceptional and prices very reasonable. Excellent choices of local wines — a great ending to a very long travel day.

Having dined at Quay 4 many times we were disappointed on this visit. The food was really not great and did not have the "freshness" we have previously experienced. Sauces had that "Out of a bag" taste. However, the venue remains my favourite spot on the Waterfront. Perhaps it will be drinks only next time.

Twice we had lunch at Quay4 this holiday and we enjoyed both occasions. The service was very friendly and helpful. At our table there were a mixture of burgers and seafood and everyone complemented the food. They also catered well for the children in our group. We will definitely return.
