We had no restaurant reservation on a busy Friday evening in Cape Town and our hotel recommended Willoughby's since they do not accept bookings. There was a queue but it moved quite quickly and we were treated to excellent seafood and really helpful but not intrusive service. Incredibly good, particularly for a restaurant in a mall!

The best sushi at this price. Quite busy during dinner time. But the taste worths the waiting. Not a fan of the soup though. Definitely will go again next time I'm in Cape Town.

Went for lunch, and will go back for dinner. Wide range of sushi dishes, served by very attentive staff (not sure how he remembered our order for 6 people without writing it down!!).

recommended by a chap I might on the plane. very good food and service. nothing poncey about this place. the fact that there was always a queue every time we went past says a lot about this place. have to wait to get the best tables-worth it though. excellent cooking and choice. nice vino there as well. recommend a visit.

One often wonders how a restaurant can maintain running queues day in and day out. However, once you have a meal and experience the service you quickly understand why. The sushi is superb and there are many options. We ordered a wakame salad, beautifully constructed with an Asian dressing that is tantalising. In my opinion the best dish on the... More
