An acclaimed restaurant known for its delectable fare is in the middle of a scandal that could ruin its reputation.
This expose was first reported by the Weekend Argus and will continue to be front-and-center in the media all week.
The claims were made and the stories were shared with investigators by male patrons of the bar.
Six men, including the restaurant's owner Peter Weetman, came forward to Weekend Argus with allegations of sexual misconduct by wealthy male customers.
In addition to the patrons, several of the wait staff who spoke to the magazine believed that it was actually a brothel.
That the restaurant's owner was using it as a cover for his illicit activities was one of their main complaints.
Identifiable 20-year-old waitress: "When I started working at Societi Bistro, the owner, Peter, told me it would be really difficult for him not to flirt with me." He first didn't "give it much thought," he said.
The waiter lost his job because he refused to bend to his manager's demands.
