Lunch with friends in a beautiful setting. The food was very good. Service was good and frienly maybe a bit slow but the food made up for that. As a desert try someting with icecream - the best vanilla I have had in South Africa! Also visit the manor house and library - 300 years of history!

We showed up with out a reservation for lunch and although we hadn't booked they where able to find us a seat. The staff was polite but not overly friendly. The food was well prepared and we enjoyed the views of the fountain and well maintained gardens...

I was quite disappointed with this restaurant. I have been before but only to sit outside and have a late afternoon glass of wine but decided to try the restaurant. I thought the food was average, prices OK but not for the quality and not a great atmosphere inside. I won't bother to eat there again.

This is a top rated wine estate, and owned by a large corporate. The gardens are absolutely breathtakingly beautiful and hugging the mountains in Somerset West. The wine list on the menu is outstanding, and certainly highly recommendable. The Stables Restaurant has lovely views of the lawns and mountains. It is such a pleasure to have a good Server and...

We have been here 3 times this year for breakfast and lunch. The food is just to die for and service is some of the best I have seen. Amazing place for the kids as there is a huge jungle gym and lots of grass to run around. The views are breathtaking! Attention to detail is just WOW! Highly recommended... More

I have had breakfast and lunch on numerous occasions at this stunning eatery on Vergelegen Estate. The service has been excellent and the food delicious. I have however noticed that, as a hearing-impaired person, the acoustics inside the restaurant are awful! The best two occasions were when we sat outside during summer and then in the more private side room... More

We enjoyed a leisurely Saturday afternoon on the patio at The Stables, the food was superb, beautifully presented and the Vergelegen Chardonnay was a perfect match to finish it off. Highly impressed by the professional service we received from our waitress. We will most definitely be back!

We had thought to eat in the fine dining restaurant, but it was a little intimidating, a lot of food, cutlery, starched table cloths, in truth an evening destination rather than for a light'ish lunch on a very hot day. The Stables was great, with delicious fish and Vergelegen wine. Lovely, attentive service and , of course, an amazing garden... More
