“Great value”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

They have just introduced their new menu and we were pleasantly surprised at how prices in Cape Town restaurants have normalised. 2 years ago they were at least 30% more than in my home town of Durban - they are now on a par - but the food is better!!. Societi is brilliant - food and service. They even offer very good wine at R58 a bottle!!! Well done.

“Superb”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

Went on a Monday evening, and it was full. Building very interesting inside. Waiting staff were really helpful and friendly. Had 3 courses (prawns, steak, dessert) all of which were excellent. My wife is a vegetarian; she also had 3 excellent courses. Would definitely recommend this place.

“A pleasure as always”
Reviewed December 10, 2012 via mobile

We have visited Cape Town 5 years on the trot and always return to this great place very casual and relaxed. The bread is fantastic and the mushroom risotto out of this world, this time round had the sesame seared tuna cooked medium rare with grapes and peach as part of the salad awesome main. And what can i say the cheese cake is a must New York style rich and creamy. Awesome service and when weather permits, no wind great to sit outside, been there twice already great both times round good selection of wines most available by the glass

“Consistant as always”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

NIce to be back at Societi after some time as I am not from Cape Town
I was a great experience as was my last
I had the Fillet with the wilted spinach and ended with the Lemon tart
They have a super wine collection which should satisfy all!
Well done to Peter Weetman the owner and staff as I will be back when in town
