I visited the restaurant last night and had my doubts about the food. Often fine dining can leave you wanting. Many have mentioned the location, not the best, but the interior of the restaurant is smart, and looks good. I enjoyed all the courses on the Dégustation menu. Each dish was superbly presented, and the mixture of flavours and textures... More

Went to DW 11-13 to celebrate my boyfriends birthday. The decor is stunning and the atmosphere is very relaxed. The food is impeccable! Each dish was beautifully presented and full of flavour. We had the degustation menu with non alcoholic drinks pairing. I could not fault any course. All the dishes and drinks were unique. Truly enjoyable experience, lovely waiters... More

Each course just for more in decedent in taste and presentation at this incredible restaurant. We couldnt find fault in a single dish. Incredible chefs, and a restaurant worth every cent spent

In 2015 I came 3 times. I returned today with a friend and it was as good as ever. The chef's menu is Superb and is on par (if not more creative) than Michelin star restaurants in Europe that I have been to. It is pricey but you get an experience - not only a meal. Look out for the... More

This restaurant just keeps on delivering. It's certainly amongst the best in Jozi for food. It's a good experience from the moment you arrive, with all staff very well trained.Had the 4 course menu. The confit chicken was fabulous, the Bonsmara sirloin succulent and tasty, while the Basil Sago is original and a piece of art. Loved almost everything (one... More

Seems great for business lunches to impress clients. The service is excellent and the food is high end. But, I did not find the food so exceptionally great to justify the cost. Perhaps my tastes are more simple.

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

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
