Had a very pleasant semi casual lunch in an modern restaurant in the historic setting of Vergelgen.. Obviously good wine. Fish and lamb dishes were excellent.

This is not the first time we went for lunch, and normally we enjoy our experience. This time we celebrated a birthday with 11 people and it was a bad experience. Service with hick ups. Mediocre food, and cold steaks. Conclusion : go there with max 4 people.

We go there quite often for brunch on a Sunday, and even though any breakfast can hardly be classified as haute cuisine it really is hard to fault the quality of the food or the service, which can both be described as Excellent! Then there are the beautiful gardens and spacious outdoors kids play area - enough to keep any... More

There is no better venue or location for a wedding. Kid friendly is an understatement and the service was impeccable. The staff went above and beyond. All the food was prepared magnificently. We had a creme brule to die for!!

I ate here recently while touring this area and felt that the selections were ample and the food was well-prepared. Stables is the more casual of two restaurants at Vergelegen and is particularly child-friendly. The setting is very nice with garden views and an opportunity to eat outside as well as inside. The servers were knowledgeable and service was appropriately... More

We picked Vergelegen for a visit as we travelled from Cape Town to Hermanus. Unfortunately it was a very cool and rainy day so we headed for lunch at the Stables. We enjoyed a great lunch and tasted a few different wines as we hoped the wether would clear. It did not. Still worth the stop.

On a whim we popped into The Stables for breakfast. Even though we hadn't booked, they made a space for us on the terrace. The service was outstanding, breakfast was well priced and delicious and we just loved the view! Vergelegen is an absolute must and a bite at The Stables the perfect start to the experience.

We wanted to have an informal lunch with family and friends and The Stables was the perfect location. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The food was good and, as far as we were concerned, plentiful. In fact, we had a doggy bag or the Afrikaans equivalent.
