Located on the main drag through the little town of Simons Town. Close to Boulders, to the town museum and to good whale watching. There are also boat trips to visit the island with seals which attract the famous white sharks.

This restaurant seems to be very popular and probably by visitors to Cape Town because of the great setting. Seeing that it was cold and miserable that day the warm blankets available were a treat. The menu was average fair but a bit disappointing that Knysna oysters were not available this time of the year as it was the Knysna oyster festival at that time. Overpriced variety from Namibia was on the menu. The fish ordered was well cooked and very tasty. My choice of dessert was not available so we missed on that. Not my first choice in restaurants but on a par with most others on the Waterfront. Willoughby's might be the only exceptional restaurant there.

Wait staff very efficient and the sushi /sashimi was excellent.. Gorgeous views of the harbour. This is a highly prized outdoor location.

Fish takeaways should not be a problem, except that this establishment was unable to provide these takeaways and in the midst of our small group ordering, after a 30min wait they closed the counter since they could not cope. The manager was extremely rude and in fact shouted at customers. The half of our group who received their food were not allowed to wait for the other half in the restaurant area while we had a drink. No common curtsy or admission that their service stank. We phoning the owner, we got some sympathy. Hopefully the poor management was corrected.
Don't go there!!!!

Thank AddieSA
