Had breakfast here which was very good. Seemed like it was popular with families. Staff friendly and attentive. Breath taking views. Will certainly go again

Originally we wanted to picnic on the Vergelen Compound, only to find out that you have to pre-book - well bad planning. However, the Stables was a great alternative. It's not geared towards the ultimate high end gourmets as the menu with pizzas and burgers suggests, but it is a really good and nice restaurant. We liked the mordern almost... More

We had very nice food, had not visited here for some time, the only thing I was not too happy with is the size of the place compared to the lovely Restaurant they used to have which I believe was burnt down. Very nice, but I prefer smaller!

We were received by very friendly service and felt immediately very welcome and perfectly nice treated. We received very good advice on food and on vines. The food was excellent... More

Perfect spot for a relaxed lunch with great service and great food. I love Vergelegen. Well worth the visit. And don't complain about the entrance fee!

A very pleasant park-like environment sets the scene for the Stables Restaurant. The service at lunchtime was very attentative and the food was of excellent quality. We had booked a table on the verandah and when the wind started blowing, threatening to blow the glasses off the table, we were moved to a more sheltered space. No fuss, very efficient.... More

After wandering around the superb estate for an hour or so, we were more than ready for lunch. The food was good and the service friendly. One little niggle: originally we were seated inside, but the acoustics of the room made it almost impossible to chat against the backdrop of very intrusive noise. Fortunately, the weather was good and we... More

My wife (Robyn) and I had the pleasure of a special afternoon (Sunday 5 October 2014) spent at Stables at Vergelegen. We were fortunate to have a late booking thanks to a cancellation that morning. Our service was impeccable and when asked if we would mind moving to a different table to assist with the restaurant seating, we were placed... More

I visited with my family. What a great offering - good food, good wine, classy restaurant which caters for kids as well. Kids play in the background in huge play area which is in sight but not close enough to hear, while the parents can sit down relax for an upmarket experience. Good value for money and a perfect place... More
