Relaxed restaurant in the Kakamas Hotel. Choose to sit in the coffee shop style restaurant or at a terrace table around the pool. Menu is a mix of surf n turf options. Try the snails wrapped in bacon as a decadent starter. The omelette off...the a la Carter brskafast menu is also a winner.More

A superb restaurant on the N14 between Springbok and Upington. Great service. Lovely food. Pleasant people. Apparently number one around Kakamas. We enjoyed it. Highly recommended. Enjoy!

We enjoyed our dining experience and had a great time at Vergelegen. We enjoyed that the wines on the wine list were local wines. The food was delicious and well presented. My husband even had a dish which was only on the previous menu which...we found in the room. The staff was very friendly and enjoyed having guests around them.More

After regularly visiting Vergelegen for the past 9 years I was shocked and saddened to experience the deterioration under new ownership. The service is non existing, the menu disappointing and the wine list a disaster. Less than 50% of wines available due orders not placed...according to the waiter. The food portions have been reduced but the price remained the same and overall quality is not on parr anymore.More

We once again had a wonderful stay at Vergelegen, everything is always clean and neat, the staff are always friendly, the food is amazing, the service excellent, never in the all the years we stayed here did we have any problems or complaints. We always...book the 3 bedroom family unit because we travel with animals and the enclosed courtyard is great for that. I also find their prices reasonable, tried some places in Upington before, paid a lot of money and walked away disappointed. I would rather drive the extra hour and know what I am getting on the other side.More

We had just finished and adventure race down the Orange River and were desperate for a decent place to eat in and around Kakamas although not very hopeful, Easter Sunday in a location where everything looked closed. Looked at the TA reviews and found Vergelegen...and it was open!!! We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived the restaurant was beautifully laid out. The adequate menu was full tantalising dishes and after much consideration we settled for two kudu pies, two lamb shanks and a main serving of calamari. The mains came with some crisp julienne vegetables or salad and a number of choices for starch. I selected the wedges. My kudu pie was exquisite, my wife's calamari was fresher and more tender than most I had tasted at the coast. Overall the food was outstanding, the service was brilliant and the atmosphere perfect. A definite revisit if ever in the area again.More
