I grudgingly rate this restaurant as one of the better in Johannesburg. Grudgingly, because, while the food is competently executed, the decor good, the service well above average and the wine list well selected, I find the menu dominated by unbearably rich food in overly generous portions. I seldom leave unbloated or feeling that I haven't overdone it.

WOW, this restaurant really knows how to pair wine with food, and not just any food, absolutely delicious and interesting food. A big group of us came here in December 2013 for lunch for the food and wine pairing, and we were not disappointed. The service was excellent - the waiters really know what they are talking about! The food... More

Gastronomic experience from the minute we've arrived! Unpretentious setting in a shopping mall adds to the experience. Highly recommended!

We had the 6 course tasting menu with wine pairings. Each course was so beautifully presented on the plate and you just had to close your eyes and savour each mouthful as the tastes combinations were sublime. The wine sommelier was knowledgeable and fun and explained the pairings and origins of each selection. Great atmosphere and service. No wonder it's... More

This place is absolutely deserving of a Top 10 Restaurant award title. Completely worth it! We had the tasting menu with wine pairing. Struggled to choose our favourite dish - perhaps the gorgonzola ice cream?

Had the degustation menu for lunch today. From the Butternut Creme Brûlée to the petit fours ( 6 courses ) all wonderful. Love it when I revisit a restaurant and it surpasses my expectations yet again. Thank you for keeping Gauteng on the map in the top 10 restaurants in South Africa. And all these wonderful dishes made with such... More

The food is superb. I have been there on more than 1 occasion and am always delighted with the amazing combinations of dishes that are served. Friendly unobtrusive service and a great wine list makes this a firm favourite.

I had been wanting to try DW eleven 13 for a long time, and a friend managed to get a booking for Sunday lunch. My friend had raved about it for a long time, so it was with great anticipation that I went along. We were greeted at the door by a young lady who looked as if she had... More

We've been wanting to go to DW eleven 13 since it's been Top 10, and as we've moved up from CT to Gauteng, we were excited for our evening's dinner at the restaurant, it being my partner's birthday and all. Firstly, not very fond of where the restaurant is located, but then again, that's not something that can be held... More
