Societi is a neighbourhood “local”. A sanctuary for Capetonians and visitors looking for a home from home. More than cuisine – it's a way of life – taking time to savour a meal and enjoy the company of family and friends.

“We love it! Its an extension of our home”, is how Tammy and Peter have always described their restaurants. The heart and soul of Societi remains its menu – adapted seasonally with executive chef Stéfan Marais at the helm – proving his love for seasonal produce, accessible food and offering exceptional value. Simply put: Societi creates memories!

Restoring an old Georgian-style home in Cape Town”s Orange Street has inspired creativity and the process seems to have been infectious.

They have launched many new initiatives since we have taken up residence in Gardens, such as Kitchen UNconfidential (a chef”s course) and the popular Chef”s Table in the House Kitchen.

Bad performance
Friday, December 13, 2013
I just had a meal at sociate bistro. I frecuente so many restaurantes in cape town and found this bistro's food dishonest. To pricy and not well prepared. I am so sad to say that even in the Spur you find a testier peice of meat. The sauce accompaning the steak had to be tasted 3 times to understand what it was, a basic Ceaser salad tasteless, complimentary bread was a slice of your normal cafe R10 loafs. The Expensive glass of wine opened two days before and served as if its ok. The red wine should not be kept open and stored outside a fridge in this warm weather it loose all flavors. The manager simply said that she is proud of the successful establishment and that the owners are very much involve. Is this just lack of knowledge from owners and management or being to proud to acknowledge the bad product. Society already have a recognized name and followers, why not provide a truthful product and surely this will increase profit. Service was good, however I find the over all presentation, quality, taste and price a rip off. Sad that Capetonians except and pay for this, one of the reasons why we will never improve to be a first world destination of hospitality!

What a fantastic evening. The food was great and the service faultless. The wine list is interesting and best of all, not over priced! Can't wait to go back!
