I have taken groups here several times and it has never disappointed (unlike Den Anker). Very, very good food. We all had fish and everyone commented on the quality. Highly recommend!

This longstanding seafood restaurant is one of the pillarstones of the waterfront. Seafood is good and affordable. It is extremely popular and very nicely situated. Due to its size and popularity service can be a little slow.

“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.
