I visited with my family. What a great offering - good food, good wine, classy restaurant which caters for kids as well. Kids play in the background in huge play area which is in sight but not close enough to hear, while the parents can sit down relax for an upmarket experience. Good value for money and a perfect place... More

this wasn't fine dining but it was good family friendly food. Pizzas and burgers are available as well as some more sophisticated food such as blue cheese soufflé. Plenty of room to run around in the surrounding gardens too.

This restaurant has too many attributes for a review... Our Saturday breakfast was a real treat with my all time favourite Eggs Benedict and hubby's Eggs Royale - the variation with salmon. The glitch with our friend's eggs (fried in stead of poached) was quickly and painlessly rectified. It was a stunning spring day and this spacious, airy restaurant with... More

We discovered Stables Restaurant in our search for a venue for a small 40th birthday breakfast celebration - and what a fantastic discovery! The setting is spectacular - almost right at the end of the Lourensford Road, it has the Helderberg mountains as backdrop, and contains some of the most magnificent oak trees I've ever seen. The restaurant is superb... More

We've been here twice, both times for breakfast. The food and service are always superb. The MCC on a par with and sometimes even better than its counterparts on the European continent. The children love it as they have enough space for a good run around. And there's something for the arts and culture buffs too. Highly recommended!

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
