We had a light dinner here (burgers and snails) food was a bit bland and tasteless for the price. Chef could put some more effort into the food we feel.

We were absolutely gobsmacked by this restaurant : both setting and menu are a throwback to the eighties. I asked for their "best meat dish" and the waiter recommended the rump, my wife ordered mussels. Although I had stipulated "medium rare" the rump steak arrived...More

The ambiance is incredible. The restaurant is spotless, well decorated and spacious with a choice of different sections to sit in I.e. formal, informal or outside. The service was too notch and the food outstanding. Very impressive.

Description
Vergelegen Restaurant compliments the oasis like hospitality complex it is part of near the Northern Cape town of Kakamas. On the premises you can dine in our intimate a la carte restaurant which had numerous write-ups. Dine at the fireplace or outside on the patio and enjoy a sundowner and hearty meal. A feast of cuisine to excite everybody's taste buds are prepared by our gourmet chef and personally served by the owners. Fully licensed. The decor and style of the restaurant inside becomes the playground for the creative minds of the owners. Simplicity and effective, yet subtle statements, keeps the eye wondering but the mind at ease (relaxed). A space where tourist and business people alike, feel comfortable and looked after.Vergelegen Coffee Shop has established itself as one of the best tea and coffee houses in the Northern Cape. Made famous as the place of inspiration as well as a place to relax and cool down. Experience the magic yourself. Visit us and savour a cup of tea or coffee before venturing out to explore historic Kakamas and the surrounding area.Vergelegen Cocktail Lounge offers lovingly made libations in the heart of the Northern Cape. Our mission is to help revive the lost art of mixing drinks, striving for balance in every glass. Each day we craft mixers by hand—a selection of specialty liqueurs, syrups, digestifs, and vermouths, as well as a dizzying array of bitters and tinctures—to respect the quality and character of each spirit. From a profound respect for the classics to the adventure of unique flavor combinations, ours is a perpetual quest for the new frontier of the cocktail. We use only local produce, the freshest ingredients, and natural sugars, with a constant nod to the seasons that make up the Kakamas landscape. These passions find their home in our Cocktail Lounge, where conversations abound and drinking is elevated to a culinary experience. Facilities for conferences up to 30 people. Catering available on request. Ideal for private meetings and promotions. Catering for all occasions, venues and functions. Cocktail Lounge/Bar available on premises. The decision to stay another night, by many a guest, was made after their eating experience in this uniquely created environment.
