Beautiful setting

We visited Vergelegen in a group of about 11 for breakfast. The restaurant is spacious, light and it was pleasantly warm inside. Our waiter was a bit weird -- he took an order next to me and then skipped right round the table! Anyway, the food was fine - my Vineyard Croissant was tasty if not... read more

An excellent restaurant with a great atmosphere and incredible food. Our waiter was very attentive and went out of her way to make sure we where happy. A walk around the estate afterwards is a must. Will defiantly be back!

Who would imagine that a wine farm would serve the best pizza? The slow roast lamb and aubergine pizza comprised large chunks of roast lamb and brinjal, not just thin slices, and I cannot remember having a better pizza - ever! My wife had the rich oxtail which was also delicious.

We decided to share a pizza (The Slow cooked Lamb pizza) which sounds quite strange for a pizza topping but is truly delicious, and to accompany we shared the Ceasar salad. they split everything for us which was really nice, so didn't involve passing food across the table. Great waiter and service and very reasonably priced. You do have to... More

The Food at the restaurant is good; however, we found the wine estate to be very commercial and lacking a personal touch. The cellars tour we did was not very good and the wines were average.

I took my boyfriend on a date over the weekend to Vergelegen, to walk their amazing garden. We had Lunch at Stables and I must say, I could not fault any aspect of our meal there or the service. In fact our waiter was really pleasant and we actually ordered on his recommendation. Two words : LAMB SHANK!! It was... More

Beautiful setting, friendly and efficient staff the perfect place for breakfast, lunch or just a coffee. Menu is straightforward good choices which exceeded expectations when served, recommend the club and smoked salmon sandwiches both just perfect. Only negative a small entrance fee payable as you enter the estate even if you are just going to the resturant, but the whole... More

I believe my title says it all. When I mentioned my fillet was medium/well instead of medium/rare, the waiter seemed apathetic and said a manager would come to the table...I am still waiting. The order was also taken down incorrectly which meant that one person at the table only started their meal when everyone else was finishing. Not memorable and... More

Had a fantastic family lunch at the Stables with excellent food. It is a great place for families as there is safe for the kids to run around and a play area, as well as the beautiful grounds and gardens of Vergelegen. The house contains a museum so you understand the history and significance of the vineyard and get to... More
