If you're looking to impress or for a culinary experience in Johannesburg this is by far and away the best without being over the top pretentious on the African-Chic decor. Everything is tasteful, and the food is incredible. Kale even tastes good here! Go all out and have the wine pairing menu if you dare.

We booked a table as we heard they were doing several dishes with black truffle......Can't beat that. We had a wonderful meal, the highlight being the pappardelle with black truffle which was insanely good. All dishes however were creative, interesting and well balanced. Behind every mouthful there was a surprise, an interesting texture or flavour. Well done Marthinus! Superb!

A bit hard to find but absolutely worth the search, this place is a truly wonderful find. The food is delicious and creative, and the service is genuinely welcoming and very professional. Beautiful interior space and even more beautiful food, DW 11-13 is a must for anyone who wants outstanding food that combines European and African elements.

This is by far the best meal I have had in the JNB area. It is clear that the chef understands flavors, temperature gradients and textures. Every dish was perfectly seasoned, appealing to the eye and absolutely delicious. Starting with the bread and ending with the delicious desserst (form which I tried every single one). The wine list is well... More

Although this must be the restaurant with the least creative name, this has been one of our most delightful food experiences in Joburg so far. The interior is quite informal, no table cloths bistro style and laid back. Service was impeccable. We were there on a Tuesday night and it was almost fully booked so make sure you have reservations.... More

Some of the best food I have eaten in Jo'burg. Mario is an exceptionally knowledgeable sommelier. Went for both a private dinner and hosted a large business function and the food on both occasions was excellent. Tasting menu is superb.

DW11-13 is a great place for a romantic date or a good night out. They have a wine pairing menu or a la Carte. There is no average dish on the menu. Every starter, every main is a well thought out masterpiece. To start the send home made bread with two different butters. After wards they send home made sweets... More

This is truly a wonderful restaurant in which to spoil yourself and have a great meal. We had a set menu of 4 courses with wine tasting associated and each course was fantastic. The food is a taste sensation and each mouthful needs to be savoured. Martinus is a great chef. The restaurant itself has a relaxing atmosphere and there... More

The food and wine were outstanding. Wildebeast pasta, polenta starter (out of this word). Truly wonderful S. African red wine. My colleagues felt the same about theirs. The decor is a little spartan and cafeteria like.
