This place rocks!! The food is fantastic and the chef is creative the way he services the platter. The outdoors is fantastic for the kids, with a well organised play area and huge garden. Their is even a maze for the little ones to enjoy. Lastly their wine are really out of the top draw!!

Stables is decorated in a beautiful and a somewhat calm way, but the atmosphere can be less calm due to the large crowd visiting this place (also many families). Beautiful view on the Hottentot Holland mountains, you can sit at a table or sofa's or take a picnic cloth and sit on the grass. Food is good, a mixture of... More

One can tell why you need to book about ten days in advance for Sunday lunch! To spend a day on a historical estate like this with delicious affordable food and amazing vergelegen wine is worth the wait. The service is friendly and fairly efficient( only one wrong order in group of seven) and there is a lovely playground for... More

This bistro-style restaurant is beautifully situated on the Vergelegen Wine Estate. The restaurant is bright and airy with outside seating for the warmer weather. There is a children's outside play area as well so is a good breakfast or lunch spot for young families. Service and food is excellent at reasonable prices.

We were staying in Strand and kind friends, also visiting from UK, treated us to lunch at this lovely wine estate nearby. The good food and - as always in SA - excellent wine would have been a treat in themselves, but it seems everyone one knows comes here. I was greeted from a nearby table by someone I last... More

Stables offers an appealing children’s menu for small tummies as well as a maze and play park to explore while parents enjoy the sensual pleasure of cake and coffee by the fire. We first sampled some wines in the tasting room. It was a cold winter's day and we would have appreciated a fire or some warmth in the tasting... More

The Stable's Restaurant at Vergelegen, the mountains hidden by a curtain of rain. For a non-calamari eater, the choice of calamari as a 'taster' with the first glass of wine was an inspired choice. A double baked cheese soufflé first course arrived with shafts of sunshine spotlighting the perfection of the new ponds and gardens. I didn't need the roasted... More

the venue speaks for itself , this is a wine estate worth visiting , even with the slight snob value at wine tasting centre. Food at the restaurant is very good ( gourmet pizza like you have never had). Wine is not cheap , but then stick to the Sauv Blanc and red blend , will give you a great... More

Arriving at Vergelegen your spirits have to soar the landscape is so beautiful, despite it being a rainy Sunday. We had lunch booked for our family and small children at 1pm at the Stables at Vergelegen. We waited 20 minutes before an over friendly, annoyingly chatty waitress came with a menu. We placed our order for food and drinks but... More

I have been to the beautiful Vergelegen wine estate on many occasions over many years of visiting South Africa. I was delighted to be able to enjoy the wonderful setting of the relatively new Stables restaurant for a Saturday lunch with family. The architecture of the restaurant ensures one has an uninterrupted view of the Helderberg mountains whether you're sitting... More
