This is a real gem! Based on the Vergelegen wine farm, it is a must-visit stop after a walk through the sublime grounds and the historic homestead. The restaurant has spare but authentic decor, is casual and family-friendly, overlooking a custom-built playground for kids. With outside seating, the outlook is wonderful, with long vistas to the mountains beyond. The newly... More

This bistro-type restaurant is spacious and airy and a lovely lunch venue. The service is friendly; our waiter was attentive but left us until we were ready to order and made no attempt to hurry us along. One can almost ignore the food because the views on a clear spring day are so alluring, and the Vergelegen wine is so... More

On the occasion of a family birthday celebration we yesterday had lunch at the Stables, Vergelegen. Booking was done in advance and all arrangements were in place including permanent wheelchair access. The reception was friendly and helpful and we could only marvel at the beautifully maintained gardens and the splendid view. The relaxed atmosphere and magnificent surroundings certainly contributed greatly... More

I just had a sandwich so my judgement can not be very accurate about the food. But it was excellent! Bread butter and oil of first quality. Service very good. Mainly the olive oil (I'm Italian and … I know what "olive oil" means) was excellent. It comes from the nearby farm that won a world competition held in Italy... More

This was the first meal I had in South Africa on holiday from England and it was incredibly good. I had the Fillet Steak, as did my brother and it was cooked to perfection. It was sumptuous, melt in the mouth good. I don't think I have had a better meal anywhere and the service was very good as well.

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
