A memorable treat

This was our second visit to DW in about 4 years and we couldn't remember why we hadn't returned sooner. As other reviewers have noted, the menu is pricey, but so well worth it if you are looking for a truly memorable and celebratory experience as we were on the evening of our visit.

DW is by far our favourite restaurant in Johannesburg. Yesterday we enjoyed another SUPERB meal for Sunday lunch with the pork belly dish, in particular, being an outstanding 12-out-of-10! The whole eating experience at this restaurant we have found to be a treat from start to finish. Prices are high but the great effort in creating the dishes, and high... More

The food was very nice, they are very creative in their dishes and you can see that they put alot of effort into everything they do, although you do pay the price for your meals.

Had Sunday lunch at this superb restaurant. It is fine dining at its best and the attention to detail was wonderful. The staff are well trained and our waiter, Eddie, was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Highly recommend this restaurant in Dunkeld

Went to DW 11 for my 25th birthday with family, our waiter Gabriel was great, food was good although a bit rich, my brother was ill the next day, also my mom didn't have much choice on the menu since she is allergic to fish and does not eat beek/pork due to religious reasons. She had to settle for a... More

I had not been back to DW in about five years. At that time, the restaurant was almost spartan and the food was quite good albeit straight ahead. What a difference half a decade makes. DW has not evolved, it has exploded upwards into the superlative category. Finally, someone has taken the South Africa bounty (great, not otherwise available local... More

Superb fine dining with understatedly sophisticated ambiance. A la carte or degustation [tasting] menu. Extensive-expensive wine list and wine-pairing for the enthusiast. Unexpected tucked away behind the Dunkeld West shopping centre this hidden charm is very highly recommended.

I am in the process of eating at all of the Eat Out top 20 restaurants. DW was the 10th one on my list. I've eaten here a few times before and it can be hit and miss. The last time I was blown away by the lamb but this time both me and my partners food was mediocre at... More

My wife surprised we with a bit of a Pre birthday celebration at DW Eleven-13. I guess my love for great food made this perfect. We have been wanting to visit the restaurant for some time now, we thoroughly enjoyed this experience. The restaurant has both an a la carte menu as well as a set 6 course degestation tasting...
