Having eaten at The Stables a few months back, and been absolutely delighted with the food, atmosphere and service, I decided to book a table for a farewell family lunch yesterday as I wanted something really special. I was quite surprised at how empty the restaurant was as usually one can't even get a table and it struck me that... More

A great menu with something for all tastes. Excellent food quality and unpretentious, lively, noisy family and group atmosphere. Lots of delicious vegetarian options and all 8 of us loved their food. The thyme roasted butternut-portobello pizza with truffle essence was truly the best pizza I ever had (and I live close to Italy)! The humble and pleasant young chef... More

A warm welcome at this amazing Somerset West Farm. The menu covers all bases from substantial snack to pizzas; starters, mains and desserts! We enjoyed delicious light blue cheese souffles and beef carpachio as starters. The mains were line fish of the day with interesting beetroot risotto; slow cooked lamb, tender & tasty; tender pork neck. All the dishes were... More

I've been to Stables a few times and I usually always have the same gripes: - coffee is luke-warm - service is slow We love going to Stables because it is a stunning venue and we love wandering around Vergelegen afterwards. This past weekend a bunch of girlfriends and I caught up here for brunch, primarily because the one friend,... More

Been there twice in the last 2 weeks. Food is variable, fish last week good, this week poor. Wine really good, Vergelegen all. Beautiful view over the farm. World class experience. Worth driving out there. Even in winter :-)

A fantastic venue for a family celebration for my Mother's birthday. A beautiful restaurant in stunning surroundings. The food was a hit and miss though. The double baked cheese souffle was delicious and the watercrest and potato soup was bland. The birthday girl enjoyed her fillet steak, while the half spring chicken was to sent back twice, the first time... More

I never review restaurants or anything like that online, but unfortunately I couldnt let this one go. Yesterday (Saturday) I took my mom to breakfast/brunch at the Stables at Vergelegen. As I had been there twice before, and previously throroughly enjoyed it, I looked forward to a great breakfast in a beautiful setting. Unfortunately, what was supposed to be a... More

We were so thrilled to find the menu at Stables was a mixture of old favourites like burgers and new and exciting options like the quinoa salad. The service was friendly and the food full of flavour at a reasonable price. The restaurant is light and airey and looks out on the gardens, we couldn't eat outside on the day... More
