Interesting place for a meal and with a very relaxing atmosphere. The service was good and friendly. The food was not great and not really good value for money. The fish was good, but the rest was disappointing.

We were here in October. Bit of a chilly eve but was still very nice to sit outside on the water and enjoy the view. The food was very good and plentiful. Prices were reasonable. We had no issues with service. Would return.

A Thursday evening, shown to outside table, good view of harbour. Many staff, all rather distracted. Very very slow service , a lot of dissatisfied people with cold meals. We paid for drinks and left after an hour, our food still had not arrived.

“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.
