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

Having eaten at The Stables a few months back, and been absolutely delighted with the food, atmosphere and service, I decided to book a table for a farewell family lunch yesterday as I wanted something really special. I was quite surprised at how empty the restaurant was as usually one can't even get a table and it struck me that... More

A great menu with something for all tastes. Excellent food quality and unpretentious, lively, noisy family and group atmosphere. Lots of delicious vegetarian options and all 8 of us loved their food. The thyme roasted butternut-portobello pizza with truffle essence was truly the best pizza I ever had (and I live close to Italy)! The humble and pleasant young chef... More

A warm welcome at this amazing Somerset West Farm. The menu covers all bases from substantial snack to pizzas; starters, mains and desserts! We enjoyed delicious light blue cheese souffles and beef carpachio as starters. The mains were line fish of the day with interesting beetroot risotto; slow cooked lamb, tender & tasty; tender pork neck. All the dishes were... More

I've been to Stables a few times and I usually always have the same gripes: - coffee is luke-warm - service is slow We love going to Stables because it is a stunning venue and we love wandering around Vergelegen afterwards. This past weekend a bunch of girlfriends and I caught up here for brunch, primarily because the one friend,... More

Been there twice in the last 2 weeks. Food is variable, fish last week good, this week poor. Wine really good, Vergelegen all. Beautiful view over the farm. World class experience. Worth driving out there. Even in winter :-)
