Their seafood is fantastic, with oven-baked line fish with tomato, white anchovies, olives, and feta cheese taking pride of place, but they also do excellent meat dishes like steaks and crispy citrus duck. The scallop and kingklip fish cakes are delicious, nice and moist, served with a wasabi mayonnaise. The mussel pot, redolent with dill and garlic in a rich white wine and cream sauce, is spectacular.
The extensive winelist features the best of the Cape.
Things can slow down when they’re really busy, but service is usually warm and friendly.
The deep deck, with its great view of all the comings and goings in the harbour, is delightful in this unpretentious spot.
Upstairs you will find a more upmarket experience with an even better view, especially at night when the lights are on. (GL)
What a horrible experience! What a waste of money! Ruined what was suppossed to be a special Mother's Day meal for me and my mom. Bad service from waiter who seemed totally disinterested, and was having a conversation with the other waiter while serving us. But most of all, the food was horrible, the worst restaurant meal I have had in years and I eat out regularly. Amount of food and quality of food did not match the prices - food was sparse on the plate but most of all tasted horrid. Seafood was definitely not fresh. Worse still, when I called the manager with regard to the food in particular the piece of supposed line fish on my plate (which resembled a small piece of dried snoek and not yellowtail) she became defensive and would not admit that there was something wrong. Eventually told her to buzz off and said we would not be returning.
Our Mother's Day at Quay 4 was just awful too. The food took 1 and half hours to arrive and the waiter was anything but competent or attentive! Won't go there again, the food does not make up for the long waiting time and useless waitering.
