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

This is an annual pilgrimage we make and again it was sublime. If the breads do not win you over nothing will. We decided on the degustation menu. There is a choice of alcohol or non alcohol pairing. Star dishes was Confit Duck Cannelloni and the Kale with Cauliflower Espuma. The service is refined. Not a new kid on the... More

Had dinner here on a Wednesday night a few weeks ago and thoroughly loved it. We ate at Cube Tasting Kitchen the next night and on balance we both preferred DW11-13, although Cube was excellent too. Firstly I loved that it was tucked away in quite an ordinary shopping centre and I didn't mind the décor at all - its... More

Let me start by saying this review isn't to say I had a terrible experience at DW13, the food was outstanding. Its your typical over priced for small portions but delicious taste food experience. We didn't do the food pairing or tasting menu but had selected mains as well as desert. Mains were yum, deserts were okay, the apple crumble... More

For our 9th wedding anniversary we went to DW Eleven 13. All I can say is "wow"!!!! My husband commented that we should have brought our overseas friends here for dinner. You are going to have to look very hard, and pay a lot to beat the food and service we received here. Our waitress Mona Lisa was amazing, not... More

They really what was otherwise a fabulous meal. I make Macarons myself at home and these were not even close to mine. I know I am a... More
