The food is amazing and the dessert was the cherry on top. There's a great wine selection and it this is excellent for business dinner / lunch.

This restaurant is perpetually in the top 10 eat out restaurants, but my experiences have always left me wondering why. The service is good, but the food is only average. The setting so-so and the restaurant lacks ambiance. It is ok if you are looking for an upmarket dinner spot. But top 10 - I just don't get it.

Located behind Dunkeld West shopping centre the face of the restaurant doesn't really live up to its reputation, but first impressions are transformed as the door opens and a serene setting emerges. We dined mid week and the restaurant was busy, as the tables are well placed we were not disturbed by other guests and the atmosphere is one of... More

First time back for about 2 years and generally we felt happy with the experience and overall improvement. Service was professional but unhurried and the menu was well thought out. Our party chose the degustation menu, some with wine pairing and one with non-alcoholic pairing. The non-alcoholic pairing was the surprise star of the evening, genuinely novel and imaginative.

My family and I chose this restaurant to celebrate my husband's birthday. It was a special occasion as our son had flown from Cape Town especially. From booking to our exit from the place it was delightful. Our waiter Gabriel was fantastic, explaining the menu and specials beautifully. He didn't mi d that we ordered no starters or drinks besides... More

This restaurant is an absolute must. We had the degustation menu with paired wines. The food was as good, if not better, than many Michelin starred restaurants. The sommelier was incredibly knowledgeable and matched wines and cider perfectly. The food was beautifully presented and the service was exceptional.

DL eleven-13 has been open for six years... and I can't believe it took me that ling to try it. The Chef, Marthinus Ferreira, has done an exceptional journey that can only be described as a culinary adventure. Not one ingredient in his small, but superb selection of dishes, remains untouched. Everything has been carefully crafted and placed into each... More

This restaurant will not disappoint. It is more expensive than the other restaurants in Jozi but the food and wine are superb. Quiet setting with friendly staff.

We had dinner on the tapas area they have. Great local and fresh produces. The sommelier was knowledgeable and keen to suggest very good wines. The value for money is more than acceptable. Particularly loved the mushrooms aranccini. The springbok tartare was delicious and so were all the tapas we tried.
