Willoughby's does not take reservations so make sure you get to the restaurant early to get a table. Their sushi is some of the best I have ever had and the portions is big. The menu is a bit pricey but you get what you pay for.

We're coming to Willoughbys since 1998 and whilst not a lot has changed, not a lot has to change. It is always on my list to mates as must see-eat. Because they really do get it. The sushi is extraordinarily and consistently good (wait for a table inside because you see the chefs in action), the service is good, even... More

I saw this restaurant on my arrival to the Waterfront mall. I don’t like to eat in a mall but made an exception because it was really busy! I wait to be seated and as I was alone I went for the sushi as it is always a god choice on busy restaurants . It was a nice sushi meal... More

On a business trip I went here for a dinner meeting. The sushi is fantastic as is the sashimi. The Tuna is to die for and the staff is vey friendly. I am sure you will not regret a visit, if you like sushi its a must ;-)

Willoughby & Co is most definitely the best fish and sushi restaurant in Cape Town. The fish is always fresh and the sushi is made toperfection. Service is great and the venue at the Cape Town V&A waterfront is ideal. The restaurant can get quite busy at times so it is suggested that you arrive at least a hour away... More

Weird eating dinner in the middle of a shopping mall but don't let that put you off. Food was excellent. We just had the grilled kingclip which was cooked very well. Nice bottle of wine as well. The queue tells you how good it is and it seemed to us that most people were locals.

Best sushi I have had in Cape Town, without a doubt. Huge selection on the menu. Seafood is superb but don't be fooled and think that they are not capable of doing excellent meat dishes, they are also very good. Service is excellent and professional. Very busy, make sure you get there early to avoid the cue.

I've been going to this place for years and it has never let me down, not once, not even a little bit. Not especially cheap, I normally drop around 1500 R for 2 but that is smashing face on oysters and sushi with ample sufficiency of wine and saki to wash it down so it is well worth it. Not... More

Wow. What a find and what a surprise this place was. I never had such excellent sushi in a mall before! There were types of sushi that I had never come across before. Highly innovative. For example, the Sammy Boy Cucumber has no rice at all... and very good it was too for those wanting something different. The vrab salad... More

I liked the sushi a lot. They could improve the wasabi, making it stronger, and the tereyaki sauce thicker.
