I am a loyal patron when it comes to Willoughby's! The food has been fantastic every single time I've eaten there. I would highly recommend the grilled, fresh kingklip, the tom yum soup, the spicy prawn inari and the Mille feuille for dessert is to die for! Sushi is always delicious there too. Please do yourself a favour and go!

This place has some of the best sushi in Cape Town. It is always packed and there is always a queue. But fortunately, you usually don't wait too long! The service is fast, though sometimes feels rather impersonal. There is no decor per se, as you are actually sitting in the mall. You often feel like you are being rushed.... More

We had lunch at Willoughby today - we both had fish and chips and a coffee each. The fish and chips was very good indeed - crispy batter and big fat chips. However, the service was shocking. The waitress who served us was not at all friendly, gave us the impression she was doing us a favour by serving us,... More

I don't know if any other restaurant in Cape Town where you cannot book a table, here you can't. Stand in the queue if busy, if not be seated by the staff. This is a very successful restaurant, built on its quality of food, and its constant drive not to disappoint the customer. Set in the heart of the shopping... More

This is a Sushi restaurant in the middle, I mean in the middle of a large mall. However the food is incredible. Large portions of the best sushi I ever ate. It was wine tasting night so we tasted a series of wines that were terrific. You must go there....

We love this restaurant on the water front. The restaurant is inside the Alfred Mall. Recommend visiting for either lunch or dinner. The Japaneese Platter is excellent with ample food for 2 people. a good experience when paired with good Stellenbosch whites.

Was in CapeTown for business. Told to eat her by Uber driver. We were treated like cattle in a queue. Can't figure why anyone would queue to let staff treat you like they were doing you a favour. Won't see me again. Food was OK, but definitely not the best

I go to the Waterfront for one reason only - to eat at Willoughby's. Fresh, beautiful, generous and excellent service - and consistent. Such a pity it's in a mall!

Great sushi and also good fish & chips. Nice touch was the waiter giving our wine tastings before you decided on which wines to buy. the sushi had all the usual stuff but also some creative things that I didn't know what they were so I stuck to my hand roll as a starter and delicious grilled calamari for main...
