This is THE place for seafood and sushi in Cape town. It's a bustling place so if you're asked to sit at the bar, grab it! There a lot of high tables and chairs, communal style, in addition to eating around the food prep and sushi stations. The fresh fish and seafood is divine. For dinner we ordered langoustines, that...

I eat here a lot. At least a couple of times a month. And when friends visit from out of town, then it's always at least twice during their stay. It's consistently good. I always have the same thing - mixed platter 1/2 portion salmon only. I used to have salmon/tuna mixed, but the tuna is often not great. T... More

I was so surprised to see such a great sushi place inside a busy shopping mall. Nevertheless, the sushi was WOW! Prices were very reasonable for both sushi rolls, sashimi, and wine list. I actually went twice in the same week while on vacation. The tuna is on point!

Plenty of great, traditional sashimi and sushi on offer as well as some more westernised, california roll offerings, which are fantastic. I visited with local relatives and got the inside knowledge to order 'The Bomb' which was delicious! All they need is a more inspiring location and easy 5 stars. Great place for lunch or early evening supper!

We have been to Willoughby a few times and they never dissapoint!! Great vibe, especially if you sit at the back and watch the chefs in action. The 4x4 (or 5x5) is their most popular dish and it truly is out of this world!!!

After recommendations from two separate friends, we decided to try Willoughby & Co after doing a couple of touristy things in the city. For our purposes, it was just fine to sit at the bar to eat quickly and chat a bit with the staff. The food / sushi raves I received seem a bit exaggerated from my point of... More

We went here on a recommendation by a local friend who described it as the best sushi restaurant in South Africa. However our experience was different (need to have a discussion with my friend!). We came here for lunch. It was crowded by were offered seats by the bar which we took to avoid waiting in line. The menu is... More

We were so pleasantly surprised by our great experience at Willoughby's. We ate at fancier places like Pot Luck on this trip. And yet Willoughby's was our best meal during our stay in Cape Town. Maybe it was the combination of good food, super efficient service and great ambiance. We had heard about the long queues to get seated. Maybe... More
