One chef who really does know how to combine flavors and spices successfully. The dishes are beautifully presented, almost too pretty to eat…..but then you do, and what a delight.

We recently took friends to DW whilst we were in Johannesburg. We wanted to treat them and as this is the only restaurant in Johannesburg to get any national awards we thought it would be excellent and sadly we were disappointed.
We were there on a week night and the restaurant was full, so clearly popular amongst locals. My husband ordered the foie gras starter and compared to it the many French restaurants where he has previous enjoyed this dish and we know this is fine dining, but the portions are miniscule. Beautifully presented, obviously so much detail and cooking expertise has gone into everything but we cannot say we enjoyed it.
The duck (house specialty) was so tough that he battled to eat it, my hake was delicious though as were the sides.
Dessert choice I thought for a French restaurant was poor, with France being the home of some of the best pastry chefs ever, perhaps a little more training abroad would help.
It may not have been a good night for the kitchen, but wouldn't go back and give them the benefit of the doubt.

We have been there now several times for dinner as couple and also in a group of friends and it was always a real positive excitement. Especially the tasting menu with the attending vines for each course is really an amazing experience. The variety of the meal is fantastic and the creativity of the chef together with the perfect preparation is for Jo’burg exceptional. The service is always attentive and very well trained. The value for money is brilliant. In the tasting menu package is also all water and coffee included. Best recommendation food wise I can do for Jo’burg!

We thought that we would give DW 11-13 another try, the experience was the same - the food is well presented but the textures and tastes are badly combined. The service as previously experienced, offers no private time - the waiters and management were constantly at our table talking, explaining and asking questions, barely allowing time for private conversation which in my opinion is part of dining.. the ambiance and finishes inside - very basic.
I would not go back. There are amaizing fine dining restaurants in Johannesburg, this is not one of them.
