Definitely worth a visit!

It was quite when we went and the waiters told us we could sit anywhere. It took the staff to realize after about ten minutes after we sat down, that they hadn't given us menus, but as soon as the manager noticed, he brought them over right away. We had never tried Willoughby's before and people... read more

Went last night for a little sushi and a beer. Buzzy place full of locals and tourists alike. Nice greeting and offered a short wait for a table or immediate sitting inside at shared counters. Had a Mixed sushi/sashimi platter - salmon was good and fresh, the tuna a little wet and bland, the yellow tail tasty but a bit... More

In the bustle of the V&A Waterfront, this place is a must stop for amazing sushi! Freshest cuts of chef selected fish makes for a bite of pure delight. Service is swift and friendly, food really good and prices relevant to what we expected in this top notch venue. Would have liked to see more of the manager, even if... More

Situated conveniently near a hub in the V&A Wharf shopping centre, this restaurant is just great for quick well prepared lunches. We only had to wait 2 minutes to be seated and our waiter was with us at the same time.

We visited Willoughby's for a very late lunch so thankfully we didn't have to wait in incredible long queues that gather during busier times It did not disappoint. Unpretentious service. Darn food and fresh sushi. Fantastic location. Couldn't really ask for more. The Jalapeño salmon and the 5 x 5 are winners! If only they would take reservations!

This was an excellent place to eat the freshest fish and have a glass of Jack Black, a local brew. Even the salad with French dressing was perfect.
