Quite frankly, the meals we enjoyed here were simply the best we have experienced in quite some time. We have eaten all round the world, in some of the best Michelin starred restaurants and while this is not at this level, it is fresh, beautiful honest food of s consistently high quality. Fantastic.

My friend and I were doing some shopping in the VA mall when we accidentally came across this restaurant. It was packed inside and out and had about 20 people waiting for tables. We thought if the place was that popular, the food must have been good and wow, we were so impressed ! I had sushi for starters and... More

Fish and Chips, €9,00 , Salad with salmon €15,00, this is supposed to be Cape Town, but both good and served quickly in a busy lunch time trade. The place has a name for good fresh fish and I suppose they feel they can charge a bit more for that. To be fair the whole Waterfront is overpriced. I say... More

Came here on recommendation from a local friend (no bookings required) and as I wasn't particularly hungry at that point, did wander round a small part of the Mall. Not for me though, way way too expensive and nothing that I can't find at home in the UK or on the internet. However, back to eating......sat by the food preparation... More

This restaurant came highly recommended - however we were disappointed . The food was nice enough -but not exceptional and was not something I would necessarily recommend to others . Our waiter was attentive but not very friendly. We found the food to be expensive for a cafe style meal within a shopping mall .

The reason to come here because of the invitation of Sushi. I had a wonderful lunch with it. Service is quite good, restaurant is crowded and busy. So, this is not a place for romance

We had such a great meal here, it is well worth a visit, the potions and huge and the quality is outstanding, the staff are attentive, even though the place is very busy. every mouthful was a delight. its in a mall so not the most romantic of settings but this is overcome by the food and service.

My husband and I went early on a Monday evening 6:30, and sat right away at one of the bars. It's gleaming stainless steel counters and other surfaces give the impression of cleanliness and freshness. The service was impeccable. The wine stewardess was very engaging and we felt right at home. We tried a couple of white wines, and decided... More

Willoughbys is a favourite of ours and never fails to impress. It has a great buzz and vibe - we prefer sitting inside at one of the counters as opposed to outside in the mall. We also enjoyed the banter between the waiters and the kitchen staff. The 4 x 4 sushi special and the japanese tuna salad are the... More

Pros:- 1. They line up to get into this joint. 2. The sushi is damn fresh which is pretty standard for Cape Town seafood places. 3. The fact that waiters are cool, and cope with small kids and snotty Upper Class Ladies from Constantia with diamonds and no manners, is a credit to them. 4. If you had been fanging... More
