Amazing sushi

one of the best sushi places in town. Great spot to eat when you are in the V&A. Their special rolls are the best.

By far the best sushi in Cape Town. Excellent other sea food dishes too and accidentally the Mille feuille is incredible too. 5 x 5 recommended!

The only downside of this place is that it is in a mall, but once you are over that it's a great place to eat the best seafood in Cape Town. That includes the sushi where they offer a wide choice of innovative dishes that are all drop dead delicious. The quality is absolutely consistent. The service is always prompt... More

Willoughby and Co is always one of our "must do" places whenever we visit Cape Town. We have eaten here over 15 times and have never been disappointed. It's such a pity that I can't say the same about Willoughbys in Johannesburg which we stopped eating at over 6 years ago......Whether one is ordering sushi or fresh line fish the... More

Got here at about 8.30pm on a Thursday night and the queue had died down totally so we got a table (for 4) straight away. Our waitress was lovely and helped us out with the menu, drinks and food came pretty quickly so not a long drawn out affair. The location is a bit of a shame as we were... More

This just has to be the very best sushi place in town. We had lunch there and I had a divine crab salad. Portions are large, staff is super efficient and u can grap a lovely piece if fresh fish to take home and cook if you are so inclined. I loved everything about my visit here

This is where my husband and I go for a quick and delicious dinner. They serve cooked fish, calamari and shellfish but we always eat sushi as theirs is unbeatable. It's not cheap but their "4 x 4" is a thing of great beauty

Tempura prawns were quite tasteless, a skinny prawn inside an abundance of tempura batter. When one orders salmon roses in a sushi restaurant there are normally 3 pieces, alas there was only 2 - in my opinion it is overpriced and overrated.
