Type: Restaurant
Category: Unique Experience

Motivation for award: Our dining experience is unique and like no other in SA. Our intimate 18-seater restaurant brings together an incredible mix of people from all over the world and encourages conversation. In a time where most people have been speaking to a screen, we take you back to a time where getting together around the dinner table was a daily tradition. Our lives involve an incredible amount of decisions every day, we invite you into a space where there is no need to make any decisions at all besides on which seat to sit and allow us to take care of the rest. Our meals are prepared with lots of love from local, seasonal, sustainable produce and each course introduced in person. Please consider Reverie for this category of Unique Experience.

Region: Western Cape / Cape Town

Reverie Social Table

Social Table Dinner Party

At Reverie, we invite guests to switch off from the world for the evening and just be wined and dined around our Social Table. Our dinners bring together an intimate group of strangers from all over the world, joining the table through a common love of food and wine- and more often than not, leaving with new-found friends. Our meals are prepared with lots of love using local, sustainable, seasonal ingredients and supporting small-scale and regenerative farming practices wherever possible. The local wines which we showcase are thoughtfully chosen and mostly from smaller, lesser know farms and regions. Our dinner parties are a festive and memorable, whole night affair where conversation is on the menu.

Oh, what a night! After a week in South Africa, we were THRILLED to finish our trip with an evening at Reverie Social Table. Our experience from start to finish was top notch. I reached out with several inquiries before booking our reservations, knowing we had 2 vegans and a tree nut allergy in our party. I wasn’t sure if accommodations were possible, and I was assured that knowing that information ahead of time, would make for a delightful evening. So, we booked, and I’m happy to say, all 4 of us said it was our favorite experience of our ENTIRE trip! When entering the restaurant for the evening we were greeted with wine, given time to mingle among the other guests (2 from France, 2 from Dubai/US, 3 from Denmark, 2 from US, and then our party of 2 from the US and 2 from the UK). After happy hour we gathered around Julia’s beautiful custom made 18-seater table for the most wonderful 5 course meal. Almost all of the dishes fit everyone’s dietary needs (there were 2 meat dishes but Julia prepared gorgeous vegan options for our 2 vegans and 1 vegetarian in the group). My brother said, “You could have convinced me that this aubergine dish was pork belly, and I’ve never said that about vegan food before!” In addition, the space was spectacular for this exact experience. The library area was quaint and lovely, the terrace was refreshing and clean, and the restrooms were clean, homey and cozy in the best way! The entire team (3 individuals) made the night perfect. Each individual was friendly, personable, and kind. Their hard work, making the entire evening (about 5 hours) smooth, seamless, and enjoyable, does not go unnoticed. Thank you! We HIGHLY recommend this experience to anyone looking for something different, an emersion of cultures, a social gathering with the most remarkable strangers, and the most beautiful evening of laughing, talking, eating, and enjoying each other. We were honored to have a unique experience of bonding the chef with the guests and the food. A win-win for everyone! Cheers, Julia!

Been here several times when visiting Cape Town. Chef Julia and her staff prepare unbelievably delicious dishes using fresh, locally sourced ingredients and paired with local wines. Despite the challenges of COVID-19, the social table concept continues to be a unique and enriching dining experience—maybe even more so after two years of social distancing.
