“One of the best eateries at the Waterfront”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

This place is always busy, especially with the tourists. My knowledgeable friends say that it has the best shushi in Cape Town but I cannot confirm that personally. It always has a great buzz as it is in the centre of the mall and more than likely you will have to wait a bit to be seated. My wife and I used to always have a few oysters with champagne before our meal but lately I prefer the English fish and chips which is served in a pan and the Hake is fresh fresh fresh! I don't rate their coffee so maybe they should look to improve on this, but their service is really good. Definitely one of my favourite places at the Waterfront.

“Try and enjoy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

Very warm and nice place to have best sea food experience in Cape Town. Fast and quality service with very kind workers. You will have different environment and tastes with affordable prices. Also sushi served. If you like and want to try sea food combination in one plate, try sea food platter.

“Great sushi and fish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

Friends took us to Willoughby for Sunday lunch and raved about it being the best fish restaurant in Cape Town. You can't book and the queue can be long, we were fortunate and got seated quickly. The menu was outstanding, including soft shell crab which I have never seen before in South Africa. The servings were a healthy size and great. It is in an unusual location (similar to a coffee shop in the middle of a mall) and the service is spotty but the food makes up for it.
