What a let-down!!! After reading so many amazing reviews we were expecting a true experience. I guess we should have also taken heed to the all the "salty reviews" - my fish was so salty I didn't taste anything else besides the salt. My husband's lamb was so salty he had to send it back. Our starters were interesting -... More

it has taken atleast 3 attempts to get a booking, so booking in advance is essential. It was our anniversary so to be sure to get a booking i called a week and a half in advance. They were fully booked so i had to put my name down for a cancellation, which, luckily there was. So on the night... More

My husband and I visited the Tapas bar last Friday for a pleasant evening of chatting and snacking. The food was good, but we weren't absolutely blown away (DW 11 has something of a reputation for high-end food). The service was cheerful and attentive.

good service starts at the door and DW did not drop the ball. Our langoustines were delicate with a flavouring of just the right herbs, the guinea fowl with the rsa pinot will not be forgotten in decades. Weeks later I can still taste the sour cherries. this definitely is one of joburgs premiere dining establishments. And remember the super... More

We had a very nice evening. Food was good, but not great and not worth the price. How did we end up with a R400 bill for water? That's not OK. I had the sirloin for a main. It was perfectly cooked, but the smoked marrow was so strong that it was impossible to taste anything else other than extreme... More

DW 11-13 is my go-to choice for a special occasion. The food is absolutely outstanding (and better priced than many of the other fine dining options in the city). The location is a bit unusual, at the back of a shopping centre, facing over a rather uninspiring parking lot, but once you are inside all of that disappears and the... More

This is the best restaurant in Johannesburg. Fivehundred (and some others) are close contenders. But the food experience in DW 11-13 is as good as it gets. A combination of traditional ingredients with modern touches, and some Asian influences. The deserts are superb. This is a place to go once and again.

The atmosphere and service were great. Wine prices were also reasonable. Unfortunately, the starters as well as main dishes were too salty to enjoy. If the salty ness could be drastically reduced then this place could come highly recommended

Restaurant is located in a shopping centre but has its own entrance where you can be dropped off by taxi. Food and Service is really great. The stand out for me was the Sommelier. Really knew his wines and his descriptions actually made sense. He helped me to chose a really fantastic wine and made the evening. Highly recommended
