It all starts where the blistering heat of the Southern African sun meets the grey, rich soil. It’s these elements that create the perfect conditions for growing our unique PERi-PERi chillies to their fiery best. Our chicken is marinated for at least 24 hours in our special PERi-PERi marinade, which gives it that great taste. And there are no hidden nasties – our marinade contains no artificial flavours or colours.




The Quays

After many years of negotiation, The Quays Restaurant opened its doors on the 14th January 1998, thus making the headline news. On 1st June 2014 The Quays restaurant was taken over by head chef Aaron Hanna who has worked at The Quays since the very first day the restaurant opened its doors. Since then we have been trying different menus, different ideas and also building a reputation for using all the freshest fish and shellfish caught on our shores, brought straight from the fishing boats of Portavogie harbour up to ‘The Quays Kitchen.’
