Quay 4 is a must to visit if you are at the V&A waterfront. Good selection of food, loved their prawns. All washed down with a cool mug of Castle. Cheers

“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.
