“Ignore the locale, it's got great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

Despite being in the middle of a mall, this place is the spot for fresh food. My wife tried a few sushi rolls and the line fish cape malay curry and loved it all. Not being a seafood eater, I had the filet. While it's not going to compare to a high end steakhouse, it worked enough for me to come back if we had more time

“Yum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013 via mobile

We arrived looking for a good time and ordered a round of Salmon Roses with some bubbly to start. It was so good we simply had to repeat several times. Fab service, great quality and good value - YUM

“Brilliant sushi and a super experience. Buzzy atmosphere.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

We went to Willoughby's on Sunday and had a super meal with friends and children. The sushi is awesome and a great selection to choose form. The younger kids had the hake and chips, which were served in pans. My son said it was the best fish and chips, he had ever tasted. There is a fun buzzy atmosphere. Yoi can also choose platter selections for variety.
Very more-ish I can't wait to go back and choose some other dishes.The waitress was a gem, and also suggested what choices to make, for those who were not sure about what to select. Great experience. The restaurant is not situated outside, so there is not much of a view, but the food and service makes up for that.

“Excellent Quick and Easy Dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

We had passed this busy and bustling restaurant many times on our visits to Cape Town but had been put off because it seemed to be a sushi bar-come-champagne bar and neither are our preference. However Willoughbys has such a good reputation and always seems so well patronised that we on stopped by to see check it out. In fact it's menu is hugely extensive and offers fare from most continents. We had a casual lunch on a busy Sunday and found it to be excellent. The service was efficient but unobtrusive, well timed for a quick bite to eat and our server Andrea was knowledgeable, patient and very helpful. The food was excellent, my husband had pasta whilst I enjoyed prawn dumplings and a Japanese style salad. Both were outstanding. The portions were more than generous and the fish from my salad came back to our apartment to form part of our evening dine-in. Thoroughly recommended.
