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.

    If you love Michelin quality dining… this is a must do. So thrilled it was still open after Covid. We will visit every time we are in Cape Town. The experience of meeting different people around the “chefs” kitchen table is amazing!

    A perfect experience for a single diner. The communal table is beautifully set. There is plenty of time to socialize on the back patio before sitting down to an extremely well thought out and delicious food and wine pairing. Our hosts shared information about each wine and each dish and then joined us at the end of the meal as we all chatted about the food and our experiences in South Africa. It was a most enjoyable evening and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

    What a truly unique and absolutely enjoyable experience. The food was divine! Thank you for catering to my dietary restrictions, even though I was the only one and you had to cook alternate meals for JUST me. They were ALL so yummy!

    I highly recommend Reverie. The food was amazing, and Chef Julia made the experience so great with her food but also all of her commentary on the local farms and food sources. If you have the chance, book a spot as soon as you can.
