We finally managed to get a booking to the restaurant; we tried 2 years ago on our last visit to SA and it was fully booked throughout our stay. The food and wine pairings were excellent. Each course was explained by the chef Julia and...we were fortunate to have the manager from the vine yard, where all the wines were supplied, present for the evening. I was even luckier because I was sat next to him and his wife. There was a couple from San Francisco, a family from Ireland and another couple from UK. The conversation flowed all night. I would definitely return on our next visit.More

We booked dinner here due to the overwhelmingly great reviews on Tripadvisor and our dinner lived up to the reviews. We had a five course meal paired with wines at a long table for 18 people. The food was excellent and interesting but also relatively...people pleasing too. The bread is home made and delicious. The wines were outstanding too. We enjoyed meeting other guests from all parts of the world. The venue is quaint and nicely decorated and certainly worth a visit!More

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.More

I will start by thanking Chef Julia, Liberty, Chase and the rest of the staff for an incredible dedication to their craft. By the nature of the concept, it would likely be ruined by more commercial success; however, they all deserve whatever success they can...have from their efforts. Rarely in this world are things exactly as they should be. The only thing that would have made this supper better would have been if my wife had joined. Traveling alone for work, I was surrounded by a wonderful people—-Mr. Incredible from England who now works with his sons and perhaps is pairing the lazy one with the intrepid Millenial Journalist across from me. The Beautiful Honeymooninf couple to my right who will save the world with Bespoke bread. The Google engineer and her husband who are trying to make schools better with open source education. Truly amazing The food and wine were paired perfection. I never knew carrots could be so good! If you are ever told you need to be in Cape Town; before your book your flight, before you book your hotel; book your seat at Julia’s Table. You will never be happierMore

We had a wonderful evening, met some great people and enjoyed high quality food from the passionate Julia and her dedicated team. I suspect that this young and highly talented and focussed chef will develop her concept further and we hope to enjoy watching (...and eating!) the journey .More

A wonderful evening. We loved the concept where you meet people that are new to you. There is a relaxed drink when you arrive and there is enough to discuss. The food is good, the wines a perfect match. A very special evening! Don’t be...scared by the area (especially during power outages), Uber is the safe transport.More

At first I was a bit hesitant about sitting around a table with a group of random strangers; especially on Valentines Day, but after reading numerous positive reviews I thought why not. What a good decision it was. From arrival we were greeted with a...glass of local MCC and lead to the outside courtyard area where we met couples and families from the USA, UK, Germany and Austria. Everyone was very pleasant and we all exchanged stories about South Africa and their local countries. Dinner was elegant yet casual. Each meal with its wine pairing was explained before serving. An endless supply of the most amazing sourdough bread and homemade butter kept the centre of the table occupied between meals. Overall an amazing experience where we arrived strangers and left as sort of friends from all over the world. Be prepared to Uber as you do tend to drink quite a bit of the amazing local wine ;). Very well done to Julia and the team! We will be back!More

We had a very nice evening that was filled with new friends, creative food and delicious wines—all locally sourced. This is a must do if you enjoy meeting new people and fine dining. Five courses each clean your plate yummy and fresh homemade bread. Wine...pairings were perfect. Great value for the price. Julia, the owner and chef and her friendly staff facilitate a memorable evening in Cape Town.More

£45 per person springs to mind and as mentioned above that comes with water and a different wine ( unlimited ) with each course.

Its rather far from the main tourist area. It will cost you approximately 150 - 180 rands by Uber and it is a 20 minute car ride from the waterfront. The area is not very safe to walk around in the evening so uber there and... More

Yes! They accommodated my wife's gluten free (celiac) diet with ease. A couple of courses were different than the rest but they were really interesting and tasty.
