This revamped first-storey restaurant should not be confused with the rowdy Quay Four Tavern downstairs. This Waterfront venue offers great service and fabulous fare. Situated in a former dockside warehouse with a view facing Table Bay, Quay Four is now decorated in light blues and cream, with blue-upholstered wooden chairs, terracotta tiled floor and warm fireplace. The contemporary global menu is characterised with seafood and Asian influences. The sauteed baby calamari with chilli-orange is a classic, while there is a good pasta selection and curry choice for vegetarians. The range of wines is small and the prices fair.
I've been to Quay (pronounced "key") Four on each of three separate visits over several years. Each time the service was impeccable, the offerings ample, well presented and just plain delicious. The ambiance of the place is overwhelmingly delightful with marvelous views of the harbor. If you are lucky enough, you can snuggle up to a cozy fireplace in the winter or sit near the wall-sized windows and enjoy the view. Try the King Klip with one of the fabulous local Cape white wines. One of my favs was a Stellenbosch Hanepoot which I have learned is a close relative of Muscat d'Alexandrie. Very nice! If you go, I can guarantee you will return. I'm ready to go again - it will be my fourth trip to Z.A. and I cannot go to Capetown without visiting Quay Four.
Disliked very slow and indifferent service.
At a table of 4 we all ordered similar food. For example if the order was calamari and chips, that was what was on the plate - no garnish, and nothing to make the plate look appetising - calamari was soggy and very small rings - the chips were not great. At the time had eaten similar seafood at several similar Cape Town resturants over a week visit. I would recommend all the others for value for money and service above Quay Four.
For a top restaurant in the waterfront it sure doesnt stand out as anything special. If it werent for the terrace downstairs where i could hear music i wouldve thrown up.
Unfriendly waiters, not value for money, WORST service ive ever had. Had to use the table cloth as a serviette as there was no cutlary. Was never offered drinks or deserts. Empty plate stood on the table for 30min nex to a full ashtray.When leaving the table was cleared after having to go to the front and asking 4 my bill.
Fortunately for me ill never go back upstairs.
