Johannesburg does not have many tasting restaurants . I have been to few tasting kitchen around the globe and I must say this was my least favorite . Restaurant was half empty so I guess it does not get too busy during the week . It felt like mass production of tasting menu not a bite sized flavorful dishes ,... More

Different tastes, smells and textures, and served in an attractive way made this is feast for all senses. My local colleagues will return with their partners.

I thought this would be the perfect place to celebrate an anniversary with my wife. Our booking was for 19:30. At 19:00 we called ahead to say we would be 20 minutes late due to something serious and unforseen. The restaurant was unwilling to still serve the tasting menu, the chef refused to come out and listen to our explanation.... More

Spent an evening with a number of people at the restaurant. The restaurant appeared to only do one seating for each table, which help explain the roughly one month lead time for a booking on a weekend, the other reason for the lead time....the food and service. We did the tasting menu with wine pairing...the degustation menu. There were 8... More

We've been eating quite regularly at this restaurant since it opened - the waiting staff have always been experienced/knowledgeable on all fronts. But we have always left talking about the food but remarking on negative experiences with the attitude and lack of sharpness of the front of house. Things move on and we tried again for my birthday lunch this... More

We decided to tick down one of our bucket list items and have our anniversary dinner at DW Eleven–13. The only thing we are disappointed with is that we waited so long to make a booking, but it was by far worth the wait. The food is exceptional and the service was outstanding, our waiter Zack made our evening even... More

We enjoyed the tasting menu with the wine pairings. After placing this order the waitperson asked if we have any dietary requirements, and those that we raised were taken into account through all 5 courses of the subsequent meal. We are typically picky eaters, so we specifically did not look at the menu descriptions of the meals before they were... More

Listen! If you're a meat and potatoes man, don't do this restaurant. You're not going to enjoy the pretty palette of daubs and dots; the pointillist masterpiece of carefully contrasting colours and flavours that is presented on your plate. But It's up there with the best. Went for a Xmas party of 35. Choice of 2 for each course: fried... More
