We visited this lovely, central resturant at roughly 10pm to which we were pleasantly surprised that this cozy kitchen was open till 11pm which is hard to find in town! We had the Ostrich burger and Mushroom risotto. The risotto melted in our mouths and the burger was tender and juicy. This gorgeous place is worth a visit whether it be a date night or a family night.

Food, wine and service are all very good. My steak was cooked perfectly medium rare and the dessert was excellent.

This bistro is a part of Capetown because it has been there for ages and is well known by Capetonians looking for quality they can trust.Although the menu changes by seasons the old favorites remain,ie fillet steak au poivre or the ceasar salad.The owner,Peter has a sweet tooth so the deserts although I try to avoid them are irresistibleGreat service and lovely atmosphere..

I love coming here in winter because of the fire places in Societi but few things beat their garden for a sunset drink and a meal from their amazing menu. I will return to Societi over and over and never get tired of the food, setting and brilliant service.

We waited well over an hour for our entrees and were mostly ignored by the staff. The brick chicken was over cooked with a soggy skin. When we told our waiter he apologized but never returned to our table. The rest of the meal was very average.
