Pricey but worth it

The best tapas the city has to offer - it was a girls night event. The food is inspired and delicious. Slightly pricey but worth it

We recently visited this restaurant on a weekend evening - the usual busiest time for a restaurant. And was surprised to see how empty it was! Probably driving patrons away by average food and abysmal service. We were last at this restaurant about a year ago - and its certainly not as good as it was! As mentioned nice -... More

I was pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere of this restaurant. When you walk in its a bit small but its all worth the intimate dining experience. Our waitress was so attentive and her recommendations were spot on! Definitely recommend this venue for an intimate birthday or romantic dinner. Food and wine options were superb and the waiter that explained the... More

THE GRAZING ROOM IS OPEN ON LIMITED DAYS FOR EITHER LUNCH OR DINNER AND IS SEPARATE FROM THE MAIN RESTAURANT IN ITS OFFERING OF TAPAS STYLE FOODS. Four of us had an excellent meal with two bottles of wine and tip for less than R1400. I have no hesitation in recommending it and would go again. Chef and Owner is... More

An unexpectedly great lunch. Great service and ambiance. I was jet-lagged and not in the mood to go anywhere for lunch but was committed to meet people at the venue, ordinarily this frame of mind would ensure that I would have a pretty miserable experience. The food was superb! A classy place indeed! The experience was outstanding.

It was difficult to get a reply via email with regard to my request for a birthday acknowledgement for my twins (and I was doing this from Europe) My son - from SA - was trying to request dietary matters and this also proved a little difficult. (Eventually did get a reply but no answer to my actual question -... More

We went to DW for a work celebration. The food is outstanding, unforgettable. We had a great waitress that gave outstanding service without interfering. She graciously entertained our requests. Fantastic restaurant, would highly recommend and return time and time again.

Enjoying gourmet meals, this was a must visit on our gourmet dining list whilst on a short trip to Joburg. We enjoyed every single dish AND it stayed in memory which is not often the case. Chef Marthinus combines different textures to brig out different flavours with great skill. We had to return the next day for lunch to try... More

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.
