We have been to this restaurant several times. The food is original and features unusual combinations of ingredients, the mark of a creative chef. However, I feel compelled to write this review because we were not greatly impressed with our dinner there recently. Our party of four had one main complaint: The portions were too small and the price in... More

We have a great night here on Friday, go the table we requested, and the service was quite good. The food was fresh and tasty, the lamb shoulder was magnificent. Steak tartare was not what I expected, did not taste like the real thing. My wife's cod was lovely. I do however expect a restaurant like this to know what... More

Two trips to this wonderful restaurant in short succession has made me wonder why I haven't been there before. I had heard that while the food was good, it was way short on atmosphere and had avoided it. But the two trips there in the last few weeks convinced me otherwise. The food is delicious, imaginatively presented and service is... More

We were a large group and ordered a large selection from the refreshingly short menu. Apart from the lamb (which was spectacular), the prevailing opinion at our table, was that none of the food was that special, the seafood dishes were just plain bland. Sure, it was pretty and elegant and the restaurant was smart but relaxed, but we also... More

The rest of the table loved their meals. Thought they were exceptional. I am dairy and gluten free. The kitchen was willing to omit the dairy and gluten containing components of the meal - but unwilling to replace them with something else. So, I got a piece of meat on the plate with a few berries and a sauce. No... More

One of the best restuarants in Johannsburg, service was exceptional, food was wonderful and the choice and selection first class. The desserts resemble artworks and are beautifully balanced. Love love love.

This restaurant is behind a strip mall,but when you get inside you are transported. Beautiful, romantic setting. One of the few places where diners were dressed up. Extensive wine list, knowledgeable sommelier-he showed my husband the cellar. The waiter was attentive. The best meal in an upscale setting I had in South Africa. It should be #1

Our close friends and we shared a 50th wedding anniversary and we thought that this momentous occasion ( 100 years of marriage amongst only 4 people at one table) deserved a special meal. This restaurant is pretty and the service pleasing. The soup was very ordinary and lacked depth and excitement. Crockery and presentation were however beautiful. We were disappointed... More

We had the opportunity to dine at dw eleven-13 with friends. After trying on many occasions to get a booking - they were successful. We were to disappointed. The food was beautifully plated, almost a shame to eat it. The flavours were amazing and left us wanting more. Needless to say our table of 4 all over indulged in starters,... More
