Food and service in the restaurant was good but coffees were really weak, extre shots were provided after a long wait, incredibly they were added to the bill. The manager saw no problem with this and wasn't bothered if we did not come back.

Enjoyed several meals here again in February. The food upstairs is very much better than downstairs, which is more set up as a sports bar with live music and food anyway. Interestingly, the staff told us that upstairs and downstairs had completely different kitchens and...More

A lovely place to eat. Great atmosphere and great food. We have visited this place on previous years and one of the door men recognised and gave us a big hug which was lovely.

Our tour guide brought us here for an outdoor lunch during our trip in November 2017. This was a nice stop after a day of visiting the Table Mountain top and walking around the V&A Waterfront. We had an excellent view of the Cape Harbor....More

“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.
