These are normally my main parameters to judge a place for my tripadvisor comments: location. Venue. Service. Food and cost. Well. For the second time since I'm writing and adding comments here on Tripadvisor I'm going give Five Stars. There was nothing not right. The place and the estate surrounding the restaurant are outstanding with also few attractions and things... More

We always enjoy a visit to this restaurant with lovely Vergelen wines , coffee and light lunches. A very nice building with a lovely view and ideal for a relaxed lunch. restaurant can be busy and service can be slow but we were on holiday.

stunning restaurant set on a gorgeous wine estate. Lovely ambiance and nice outdoor dining area. Serve breakfast and lunch daily and also sell little packaged treats. Great coffee and good service. Meals are good too but portion sizes a little small-so don't go hungry. But beautiful surroundings and great for children

We see Vergelegen as one of the gems of Somerset West and go there often for a walk through their beautiful gardens. The Stables is a very nice and relaxed restaurant - beautiful inside and outside and very child friendly with a great play area for the kids. We love going there for especially breakfast.

We often frequent stables for breakfast or lunch. The views of the mountains are amazing, and the kids are safe in the play area just adjacent. We have been there with kids of all ages. Something to suit everyone, despite being upmarket/sophisticated. Food quality is consistently good, and Vergelegen estate has a lot to offer tourists. Number 1 attraction in... More

This restaurant is set in the most beautiful gardens and has a wonderful and unique play area for children.The food and service is good, but my biggest quibble with this restaurant are their operating hours. They only open at 09h30 and the kitchen closes at 15h30 so if you're wanting an early breakfast or a late afternoon sundowner, this isn't... More

The Stables serves some of the best pizza I've had in South Africa. Unfortunately the carpacio was not that great. The atmosphere is relaxed and service is good.
