Reverie Social Table is proudly South African table dhote style eatery located in the quirky neighborhood of Observatory, Cape Town with a focus on social dining.

Each evening, chef patron Julia Hattingh welcomes guests to sit around her bespoke 18-seater table to enjoy a five-course meal exclusively created for them, and accompanied by carefully selected wines.

Guests are encouraged to put away their cell phones and engage with one another. Perfect for those who love food, wine and great company.

Chef Julias contemporary style is strongly influenced by the chefs that have mentored her throughout her career, respect for the food she works with, her vast travels and her home town of Cape Town with its myriad of cultures and culinary heritage.

    What a delicious meal in a cosy restaurant. We made new friends from all over the world - the food and wine pairings were some of the best we've had the pleasure to taste. Excellent service and a fabulous owner/chef.

    An absolutely delightful experience - the food and wine were excellent and very well presented. Meeting a lovely group of new people was also great. Highly recommend.

    From booking this dinner to actually completing the dessert everything was perfect. Julia lives her life time dream as a chef and it shows :-). Her concept of bringing people together for a special meal that is being prepared especially for them is amazing! The food is out of this world. We felt welcome from the moment we walked in and enjoyed every minute! We will never forget our last night in Africa celebrating all our memories! Thank you for this experience!

    I rarely review restaurants but feel compelled to comment on how perfectly executed and creative. This dinner was. Not fussy, just excellent. Best meal I’ve had in a long time.
