Had a fantastic family lunch at the Stables with excellent food. It is a great place for families as there is safe for the kids to run around and a play area, as well as the beautiful grounds and gardens of Vergelegen. The house contains a museum so you understand the history and significance of the vineyard and get to... More

We reserved a table for 12.00 and loved the setting and beautiful gardens.My husbands favourite meal is lamb shank, but when he wanted to order, the waiter announced that they had no Lamb Shank, then he suggested the chef special - a loin of lamb. My husband declined and asked... More

Vergelegen wines have always been one of my favourites, so I was looking forward to the visit to the estate in the shadow of the Hottentots Holland mountain range. What a disappointment ! Service was extremely slow and the male staff seemed more interested in chatting amongst themselves than in taking care of diners. When eventually served, the food was... More

the historic main house is well worth a visit for foreign tourists. The stables has a pleasantly laid out gardens and a play area in the garden for kids. Food and service were pleasant and enjoyable

Beautiful setting on the foothills of the Helderberg mountains. Had lunch today...great front end support. Too few waitrons for a busy Saturday lunch. Enjoyed the food . Pricey though for simple fare. Was amazed to see so many kids with parents...fantastic.

Had lunch ther on Monday and it certainly wasn't busy. Service was incredibly slow and lunch took almost 2 hours to complete. Food was mediocre with small portions. Lamb shank was the best meal served.

A beautiful restaurant between lavender plants surrounding it. The staff is great and friendly!!!! My food was not exceptions though and quite a few dishes were not on the menu. However, the staff and great wine made up for any other shortcomings.

Had lunch at The Stables yesterday. Although the service was excellent the food was a little disappointing and overpriced. We did however enjoy the beautiful setting and stunning grounds of Vergelegen.

I called the restaurant three times during their operating hours on Friday, 15 May, to make a lunch reservation for Saturday. The phone was not answered once! I left two voice messages, on Friday, stating the time and guest numbers. I also filled in the reservation form on the website. An sms came through to my cellphone to confirm a... More
