We love the 5x5 platter at Willoughby. It is very fresh and tasty. The prawns are the best that I have ever tasted. We can certainly recommend Willoughby.

Willoughby & Co is always worth a visit. The fact that is succeeds and always has people queuing for seats, despite not having a sea view speaks for itself. It serves the best sushi and sashimi in town.
