This is fine dining at its best in Joburg, an absolute must if you are a foodie. The bone marrow fillet and lamb have always been my two favorites.

This is a restaurant for fine dining and is one of the top experiences in Johannesburg. Chef Marthinus has a light touch and his degustation menu was simply superb. Our party of four all chose the wine paring too and his sommelier, Paterson, added so much to the experience. We had a culinary adventure over several hours that rates as... More

We were so keen to go to this place that we had been planning for a long time. First it was very hot. When we asked to speak to the manager, it took her 20 minutes (and a further request) to come over. She said she would see what she could do, but then never came back. 20 minutes later,... More

This restaurant certainly has the wow factor - Right from your arrival to your departure. We were there to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary and it was made very special for us. Every bite of food was sublime. The presentation, the service, the quality were all excellent. I loved the little treats from the chef. Well done to the team.... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner experience at DW 11-13. The food was creative and beautifully presented. The service was attentive and knowledgeable without being overbearing. This is a restaurant which I would happily recommend to someone looking for a date night or special occasion meal.

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...
