Going back for the 3rd time in 3 months

I went for the first time in January. I loved it so I went again in Feb and it was even better. I'm now going back in March. The tasting menu is sublime especially with the wine pairing. It is really world class when compared to restuarants that I have been to overseas.

The Restaurant is "fine Dining" and certainly lives up to it's name. The wine and the food are definitely upmarket in quality and price.

I booked a table for 4 for Valentines day lunch. We had a terrific time. The table decided on the degustation menu and although it is quite pricey it was well worth it. The sommelier knows his wines quite well and we really enjoyed his explanations. The service was very good from the waiters. It's awesome to have a fine... More

We went on a Saturday lunch and opted for the tasting menu with wine. Not a cheap round but the food was very good. Having the wine pairing gave us a chance to drink wines we would not normally order. The smoked olives and breads at the start were some of the best I have tasted. The staff are really... More

We've been to DW11-13 on a number of occasions and have eaten both in the Tapas Room as well as the main restaurant. You need to book well in advance to avoid disappointment. The restaurant is a bit on the pricey side but well worth it for special occasions.

It was a very special birthday for my wife this evening and I wanted to celebrate it with special food. I had heard a lot about this restaurant through taste of joburg and recognise the owner from braai master so thought it would be nice to treat my wife to dinner at a "celebrity" establishment. The complimentary bread plate was... More

We had great expectations going to DW 11-13. Unfortunately the small portions - mediocre service and average tasting food were a bit of a let down for us. Sadly will not be back.

I was treated to DW for my birthday by my very thoughtful wife. It was amazing from start to finish. Michelin star quality at not bad prices.

We visited this restaurant for a family dinner. The food was exquisite (degustation menu), we ate combinations I would never have dreamt of, and it was beautifully presented. The service was also very very good. Nothing to complain about.
