Another excellent meal at Willoughby's like it was 3 years ago and because of the excitement we ordered way toooooo much food! The tempura prawns are a MUST - we ordered 4 portions between 5 of us - there are 10 prawns per person and this was on top of our main courses of crab salad, sushi rolls, sushi, vegetable... More

Some of the best sushi I've ever had. They have a salmon sashimi dish with lime, green onions, etc. that's out of this world. The oyster shooter is also amazing as are the fresh oysters. The prices are great.

I have reviewed this before but not for some time. If you want fish in Cape Town, this is the place It is hellishly busy and in a mall so the ambiance sucks. You can however sit around the sushi bar which is nicer Food is great. Service is OK. Occasionally they do overcook the fish so it can be... More

The long queue and busy restaurant is a sign that the place is worth waiting for. Complimentary wine tasting from their vineyard at Fairview whilst waiting to be seated, creates a sombre relaxed atmosphere ahead of utter chaos inside. The restaurant is large and filled with a BUZZ, that just makes you want to try everything. The service in such... More

We've loved supporting Willoughby for many years and although it's the best sushi in town it's become overpriced for most local south African people. We hope they continue to grow from strength to strength and hopefully they could cater for the local market with a stronger rand.

I had not been to this fave spot in ages and post the renovations as well! Despite a heaving line of people to get a table it moved quickly..service was efficient and food exceptional as always. Melissa our waitress was fantastic! Passionate about her menu and I appreciated her vibey character. She showed such a warmth in service and wanted... More

I've visited Willoughbu &Co various times over the years and every time the food was of an exceptional standard. Extremely fresh seafood, high quality sushi and a dedicated wine list. I would recommend this to every visitor to V&A waterfront.
