After wanting to try the place for a very Long time I finally made a booking (very quick process online). We were completely blown away by the entire experience. Lovely ambience, attentive staff, good wine list and absolutely delicious food. A taste explosion with bite will definitely not disappoint. Booking is essential to avoid disappointment and the place allows for... More

We wanted to go out for a nice meal on our last night and this place was recommended by our guesthouse. We didn't realize the popularity of the restaurant, but were lucky enough to get a table because there was a cancellation. The service was spectacular and the food was even better. We tried two different dishes for each course... More

Spent a lot of time researching a great place to eat in this city. Amateur cooking at best - a lot of style over substance. Good starter, really clumsy mains and an adequate dessert. Service saved the evening. Thankfully at the exchange rate this meal hardly made a dent, but I really expected a city of this size to deliver... More

Top marks to a comfortable and simple interior. Top marks for service (but it was empty) and top marks for presentation of the food and complimentary breads and candies. The food, on the other hand, was not quite up to what one expects - I ordered Pork Belly based on someone elses review and parts of it were too tough... More

I am rarely ever blown away by restaurants, and I've tried more than my fair share. But this was without a doubt the best ever dining experience I've had. Everything from the decor to the staff to the food and the presentation was top notch. And for what was on offer, the prices were very reasonable and compare favourably with... More

Another visit to DW and it really delivered even more so than the first time my wife and I went there. The food was nothing short of incredible, the staff knowledgeable and welcoming and the wine fantastic. We had the tasting menu and all the dishes were unique and offered a different taste sensation, the presentation was first class. Fine... More

The restaurant is located in a strange place but this is forgotten as soon as you enter. Having been to many Michelin star restaurants this one can easily compete. The food is of an excellent standard, we took the degustation menu with wine pairing. The different flavors are spectacular, the service is great and the wine pairing is the best... More

Hoera, it does exist the neighborhood of J’burg: fine dining of very high quality. We had a 7 course menu diner. All of very high quality with very balanced flavours and tasting structures. The accompanying wine was also of high standard. The service and the very acceptable price according to European standards made it a wonderful evening
