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

We eat Sushi in every place we go and have to say that this was a very lovely experience. Highly recommended by locals as well. Its very busy during lunchtime and later dinner... More

This is some of the best sushi we've had anywhere - and not just your standard selection of sushi, sashimi, nigiri and rolls but also many creative and unique assemblies such as the "Rainbow Nation" rolls. The only reason I give 4 instead of 5 stars is that both the location and the dining situation are not terribly comfortable. The... More

It's impossible to book, so you have to arrive and stand in an enormous queue. They promise 10 to 20 minutes, but it's pretty clear you're going to wait around an hour before you get a table. We gave up and went elsewhere.

Located in the V&A you might assume that the sushi would be aimed at busy shoppers and not be of high quality. Those were my fears too and let me assure you I was happy when I left. The prices were more expensive than I had expected as I regularly eat sushi in London, but the quality was high so... More

Speechless about the sushi quality! It's an amazing place with such amazing service. Sushi was really awesome. I ever had sushi like that in my entire life.
