Heard so much about it and my expectations was very high. I would I lie if I say I wasn't a little disappointed, but even with that said, what a great place and awesome food! Atmosphere very romantic and the food presentation, out of this world! Best dish of the night, the springbok. Would definitely go back just for that!

Always have really good food at DW. The waiters are well trained and the ambiance is good with a nice buzz. Quite expensive but worth it.

My wife and I both had the tasting menu with wine pairing. The food was exceptional and the Sommelier a delight however we were kept waiting for quite a while between courses and the cost of the evening was, I thought, way above what the service lived up to. Despite the comfortable surrounds and decent ambiance, four hours of dining... More

Fine dining comes with a price but our visit to DW Eleven 13 was definitely worth the experience. We celebrated my husband’s birthday in April 2015 with the A-la-carte-Menu. The entrance… yes we know a bit dodgy, but once you enter the restaurant, you are whisked away to another world. The evening was filled with an unconventional flavour explosion and... More

I ordered the quail starter which if it wasn't for the huge amount of salt would have been excellent. I then ordered the sole for main which was just as salty and i ended up not eating it... More

Was treated for my birthday to the 6 course food and wine pairing. Service was exceptional and very attentive although the whole place seemed to lack personalism. Enjoyed the food and the stilton cheese ice cream was amazing, but it was the wine pairing that I enjoyed the most

We celebrated our anniversary here with the degustation menu along with the wine pairing. What a lovely experience. The service is very friendly, the decor beautiful, they ask you if you want everything explained or just left to your own. There are 6 courses with an additional bread platter to begin with, 2 palette cleansers, and some petit four to... More
