“Beautiful, child friendly venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

This is only one of many visits - set in the most beautiful location, fabulous children's play area including a vine maze, and well worth a walk around the estate afterwards. It's worth requesting an outside table for the views Unfortunately service can be hit or miss depending on your waiter. Menu fine, although calamari main is not served with anything else which is strange, undercooked burghers have been sent back in the past but overall you will have a good although maybe not exceptional meal.

“Wedding venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

I have enjoyed meals at Stables before but now I want to tell you how fantastic it was for a wedding venue! My daughter got married here on 4th Jan 2014, and it was so successful. The venue is beautiful, the service is impeccable, the food was outstanding and the price reasonable. We had nothing to worry about, we dropped everything for the tables etc off, (we did our table decor etc ourselves), and Jason and Ann did all the rest! I cannot complain about anything! Thank you to such a wonderful staff for making our day so special. I can recommend this venue to everyone for any occasion!

“Wonderful, beautiful restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

We were here at a wedding, which was simply delightful. The place it's self is gorgeous, really a majestic view of the wine lands and wonderful back drop of mountains, the area screams "royalty". The restaurant is lovely, wonderful designs that are simple and modern, very spacious, catered for all our needs, the staff is friendly and they do aim to please. Service was on point, not a disappointment at all. Thanks to the married couple, hope their marriage is as beautiful as the place where they started their journey.

“Excellent team Christmas lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

We had a party of over 30 including children. The venue is amazing for functions, and the kitchen was able to keep up with and deliver all our food at the same time. Calamari to start, followed by steak and creme brûlée to finish was the order of the day. The play area for the kids is fantastic and the grounds are stunning. Highly recommended.

“Great food and service ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

The title says it all! I didn't get a big kick out of Vergelegen estate over all but did enjoy lunch a lot! Original menu, friendly staff and good service. With a stunning view to boot.
