We decided to spend the day (wife, myself, our three children and another family of 5 we were travelling with) at Vergelegen and booked here for lunch. The estate is very impressive, especially the gardens. This lunch venue is clean and fresh but lacking any atmosphere. The menu looked good and in fact the food was delicious. It really was... More

On Saturday Dec 20 we took our family from UK to lunch Now let's be fair, the venue is perfect and in a beautiful location. Sadly for the THIRD time the delivery was again dreadful - took 1hour 30min to deliver our order and then only after complaining. Two bad things - front manager decided to,whilst complaining to talk to... More

We go to Stables regularly. The setting within Vergelegen is spectacular, particularly over the gardens towards the mountains. The staff are wonderful, most of them having been at Vergelegen for a long long time. It is a pleasure to visit the whole estate, all the staff are the same. If there is just one criticism it's the coffee! Could it... More

My family and I are frequent visitors to the stables as this is one of the finest restaurants in the area and always delivers. The menus is varied and the food excellent, the service is efficient and the venue is stunning.

Firstly we were impressed with the ambiance of the restaurant. Large open spaces, really startling art. Service was prompt if not totally accurate. The food was mixed. I had the roast of the day, perfectly cooked lamb with tasty sides. My companions were less happy. Steaks were a bit tough, and the hamburger was a disgrace - a meatball on... More

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!

After an enjoyavbe tour through the historic site and through the gardens of this perfectly well kept old farm and vinery, we ended up in the nice and modern restaurant. 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
