    One of the best meals I’ve ever eaten! Wine was fabulous too and was paired so wonderfully. Julia and staff went above and beyond to make sure everyone enjoyed their evening. I will be back whenever I’m in Capetown!

    Reverie Social Table guarantees a night of lively conversation, great wine, great food, brilliant pairings and an experience which will make you want to come back again..and again. This was my 4th visit - each evening has been totally different, and I've loved them all. Thank you Julia for sharing your love and talent with us, it is evident in every bite.

    Our group of ten came together to dine at Reverie with no expectation except for prior reviews (which rated it highly). We had the five course tasting menu accompanied by wines from a specific vineyard to compliment the dishes. Outstanding!! Every course was presented with flair and created with imagination and skill. The service was outstanding. Julia, the chef and owner, is thoughtful and forward thinking in regards to the selection, preparation and presentation of her dishes. I would highly recommend this restaurant. You won’t be disappointed!!
