The food was generally good but I don't think it was worth the hype made about it. There is practically nothing vegetarian on the menu and when I asked what they could do, they wanted to make a vegetarian platter! It didn't seem like they were confident to do this well and a vegetarian platter is not something I get... More

The food is outstanding. Texture, taste and temperature are artfully fused to create masterful dishes. This is a special restaurant for special moments.

I have visited DW 11-13 on several occasions and am always impressed at how they change and refresh the menu. Service is impeccable and the food is top notch. On my last visit -I was greeted by freshly baked bread with an assortment of flavoured butters. Delicious start to the meal. I ordered a soup as a starter and the... More

Amazing restaurant with excellent value for money. From the minute you sit at the table and the delicious variety of bread, butters and smoked olives are served......what a treat! Our favorite dishes are the prawn cocktail and corn sorbet, cured salmon, langoustine and quail for starters. He serves excellent Duck, beef and Vegetarian dishes. We also love the citrus meringue...

Went with hubby on a special occassion to celebrate, it was a refreshing experience. Presentation was stunning, so as the food combination of different textures and flavours. (A bit of sign-posting could make finding the place easier, as it's actually on the back of the shopping centre, which was not very clear at first. But they did apologise upon our... More

Recently four of us went to DW11-13 for Sunday lunch. We all had the degustation menu. This was truly a sensory experience. The food looked breath taking, it tasted out of this world, it combined interesting textures and all the while it had very inviting aromas. Pairing the courses with wine was such a treat, one can understand why the... More

My first impression was very negative, brought on by an almost dismissive front of house receptionist. Thank heavens for Emily, our waitress for the afternoon, who had a wonderful sense of humour and delightful personality! The amuse-bouche consisted of a selection of breads which were interesting, the best the freshly baked corn bread. I did not think the butters were... More

DW 11-13 is definitely the best restaurant in Joburg. It's the only one that is on a par with the top Cape Town restaurants. The chef prepares beautiful pieces of art on a plate, perfectly paired flavours melt in your mouth in a simple and elegant atmosphere. Highly recommended!

For a moment I actually thought I had lost my mind, and maybe it was all the salt, when I checked my review and saw that I had rated my experience a 4. The salt has since worn-off and I'm able to think again and realise that the 4 was an error on my part, especially given that all my... More
