DW 11-13 is a gem. Chef Marthinus has a gift to create dishes that fills you with a sense of well being. Above all he deserves an award for creating vegetarian dishes that are of fine dining standard and more over for offering an interesting array of non-alcoholic beverages.

It seems to me that most people dining at DW 11-13 on the weekday evening that we were there were either couples celebrating a special occasion or business dinners (you may well notice some big names in business when you go). The service from arrival at the entrance foyer to the waiter through dinner was attentive but discrete. The waiter... More

We dined at this restaurant on the 9th of January. We had a table for 9 and we were rather rowdy as it was a birthday celebration but we had high expectations as the restaurant had been booked and sampled by a couple who pride themselves in sampling and experiencing the best on the restaurant scene. We had also looked... More

Everyone has 'those' mornings when they wake up to something unexpected.. This morning was that morning on my birthday weekend and by the time I'd realised what was missing in my flat, I didn't want to even go to work.. Problem: I had pre-booked this lovely restaurant for tonight and had been planning this since early last year. Solution: After... More

The restaurant is attractive though a little sterile. The tables are well placed and there is plenty of privacy. The let down came with the food. The breads served were delicious but that is where it ended. We had starter of asparagus and prawn. The asparagus was fresh and correctly cooked but it was drowned in heavy non-descript sauces, It...

I've been to this restaurant three times and on all occasions had the degustation tasting menu. It's about six- seven courses and we'll worth a try. This menu changes frequently and its always an explosion of exciting flavours.

I can still recommend DW11 as a great restaurant. The menu and wine list are both superb. The service and knowledge of both food and wine is excellent. Pleasing to see that the restaurant has maintained its high standards over a number of years.

We took our oldest son here for his 18th birthday celebratory dinner. It didnt disappoint. Not cheap, but we got what we were paying for. They keep good space between the tables which is a treat in JHB! The decor is fresh and interesting (love the lighting!) The staff are professional and quick to attend without hovering. The food was... More

This little gem is hidden at the back of a shopping mall and was a delightful surprise. We had the wine paired tasting menu and it was such a fun, delicious experience. The food was absolutely delicious, playful and portion sizes were perfect. The wine pairing was particularly phenomenal and it was nice to have the sommelier /manager come and... More
