Superb seafood

Excellent seafood and sushi. The tables are in the aisle of a shopping mall so not the ideal environment

The queues can be long and you can't book but it is worth the wait. Because you have not eaten sushi until you have eaten it here. Also the soft shell crab is amazing. Ask for wine tasting, it is for free and you will then be able to get exactly what your pallet is wanting.

We came here twice whilst in Cape Town and had fantastic meals each time. The sushi is just wonderful and the hake and chips served up in its own little frying pan, equally scrumptious. Do keep some room for dessert and remember to order a hot drink which comes with a complimentary piece of home-made Turkish Delight! Can't wait to... More

I had best hake and chips I've ever had anywhere. With superb craft pilsener My wife had spicy salmon fish cakes with sweet potato. Superb. Also carfe of excellent Sauvignon Blanc. A most superb meal during which time we were superbly looked after by a young attentive (but not overly so) waitress - Indiana. Can't wait to go again.

I've reviews this restaurant previously but do so again as I haven't visited for a while. Without doubt Willoughby's serves the best sushi in Cape Town if not in South Africa. I've never had a bad or poor dining experience here & I just can't speak highly enough about it. As well as sushi the restaurant offers a full conventional... More

My mother in law is a huge fan of this place and we were off to the shops anyway……… That's the weird thing, you are sitting in the middle of a shopping mall, with everyone watching you eat. It's no fine dining experience thats for sure ! We had to wait over an hour for our food to arrive, ridiculous.... More

Although it's in the V&A mall, it's still the best sushi in town. We make sure to come here at least once every time we are in Cape Town. Today we had salty edamame beans for starters, and the rock shrimp house special for mains. Just delicious!

Sushi always so good ! The fish and chips worth coming back for over and over again .. Service must be one the best in CT , food comes out very quickly. Only downside is it's so popular you often have to wait in a que for a table ...
