We were told that there were long queues so hesitated in going. Eventually went three times, no queues for us (although we saw some as we were leaving), prompt service and good food.

I have been coming here for 20 years...and it's consistently great! It's gotten better over the years. Great atmosphere. Love the designer styled sushi. A must visit when at the Waterfront 💜

Its simple really...you want great sushi, go to Willoughby's....the 4X4 is one of their hallmarks. The menu includes a large oriental/fusion selection and most dishes are well presented and tasty. Service is quick and efficient. Queues are usually long, and they do not accept reservations, but take heart....queues move swiftly. Price: on the costly side for Cape Town but worth... More

The quality of the fish was great! We had so much delicious salmon. :) They are very quick there and very professional. A bit pricy but I'm happy to pay for the amazing quality.

Great, great food, very expensive and in my opinion not a relaxing atmosphere, but if you have sushi on the mind this is the place to go in cape town.

I have a meal at this restaurant at least once a week. I have never had a bad meal. All the food is exceptional. In fact I would say it is the best sushi I have ever had. It far exceeds Nobu at the one and only. Don't be put off by the fact that it is inside a shoping... More

Love, love, love this place. And if you are looking for fantastic service ask for Olivia. Inside so you won't have much of a view but they always have a line waiting for a seat so that is testimony to it's quality cuisine and they have a great deli section.

We had dinner on Saturday night. The grilled fish is fantastic. Most people who visit this restaurant I think eat sushi which i must admit is the best in Cape Town or maybe even in South Africa. But, if you feel like something different and warm trust me the grilled fish with sweet potato is superb.The Halve ice cream is... More
