Hello @ccchips,

Do see a bug as tested in Ubuntu 18.04 Mate & Mint 18.3 Cinnamon. However it is not consistent.

Did try various LO settings to no avail but found a strange workaround. Only some of the tables exhibited the problem. With a Dark OS theme most of my tables had white characters and table borders but on a few the characters were black and as the theme darkened (tried various) experienced the same visual you have explained. So far have not found out any difference as to why some tables had different character colors. Did manage to change it.

Opened original table in edit mode. Then created a new table in design mode. Copied all fields in original table & pasted into new table. Saved new table & closed both. Then did a copy on original table & pasted into new table. Selected Append data and then Create button. Table was now completely visible with all data in white characters.

Must be a reason but haven't got an explanation thus far.

So you have a few choices. Change your theme for now (even if just somewhat lighter); wait for bug fix; or copy and paste tables in manner mentioned above.
