Enjoy the simplicity of dining out at the "Stables at Vergelegen". Classic, with a modern twist, the 'bistro' style restaurant offers a varied, contemporary menu of simple and visually delectable dishes for a relaxed, family friendly dining experience. Whilst sipping on award-winning wines, enjoy breath-taking views of the Hottentots Holland mountain range and soak up the creative juices of the varied and eclectic local artists whose art works adorn the walls. (Breakfast and lunch served Monday - Sunday).

Great food with great views

Nice and spacious table settings, Never feel overcrowded. Wonderful dishes prepared with detail to presentation and flavour. Nice wine selection. Great garden to stroll in around after a big meal.

I am a regular visitor to the Stables, but this week I had the best meal ever! The Salmon starter was excellent, Duck confit delicious with wonderful crispy skin. Finally a pear and Almond tart to finish off a delicious meal. All this with a magnificent mountain view and impeccable service. Well done the a Stables team.

We had breakfast there, the food was good, but nothing special. We got our coffee after we already had finished our meal. Although we spoke to the manager, there was no reaction at all from the waitress. The Restaurant wasn't crowded at all, it was almost empty

The only negative thing is that it is very busy. If you decide to go, you have to book, or wait till 2.30 or even later. The food is very good and honestly priced. The staff is very good and very happy and proud to work there. We always get good waiters. When you come after 2, the nicest thing... More

Had cake and tea this afternoon at The Stables. Had to book to secure a table, so lots of visitors. Service was quick, the cake ( bar one baked cheese cake) fresh and the coffee good. A nice edition on the stoep was the misting coolers. Helped a lot in the heat. The inside air conditioned, but you sacrifice some... More

Our visit was for breakfast with a large group. Stables is bistro style in an adorable heritage building. The entire Vergelegen property is heritage and the grounds are simply beautiful with room for children to run and adults to admire gardens and Cape Dutch architecture. For breakfast, the menu choice was good, the atmosphere tolerably noisy - again it is... More

My latest experience was this morning for breakfast. Stunning setting, friendly & very attentive staff, lovely coffees and a tasty breakfast offering value for money. Can't fault it really.

Four different main courses were ordered; grilled line fish, a pizza, a filled wrap and grilled pork neck on a bed of beans. The fish, though not over cooked, was rather tasteless, the pork neck was tough, over cooked and the bed of beans, garnished with pop-corn was rather revolting. The pizza was so over cooked and tasteless that I... More

We are now in our sixth year of visiting Vergelegen and our love for the place never diminishes. It is always our first port of call when we arrive in Somerset West, whether it be for coffee and the amazing scones or for breakfast or lunch. The location is so beautiful as you sit looking out from The Stables Restaurant... More

This is a restaurant for families with children. It is noisy and one child was even riding a scooter round the restaurant. Burgers and pizzas feature largely on the menu. Not a restaurant for couples or those who wish to hold a conversation without shouting.
