“Yum pizza”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

We visited the Stables on beautiful Vergelegen during a recent holiday. Besides the stunning location, the food was really good. I had a pizza which had a very thin crust and was made to perfection. The rest in our party also agreed their food was delicious.

The entry fee at the gate allows you to stroll through the lush gardens and visit the beautifully restored buildings on the property.

A tip: Make a booking for the restaurant. We went during the week out of peak holiday time and they were still fully booked. Luckily they could squeeze us in on one of their informal couches, but next time I'll book ahead.

“Revisit a pleasure”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

After our initial experience when trying to eat at the Stables, happy to say that our subsequent experience was excellent! They still don't ask you at the gate whether you have a reservation, but after two successful dining experiences, once can but only recommend you bother to get a booking!

“The Stables”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

We had lunch here after having had good reviews from friends. The Restuarant is beautiful, the setting is magnificent we had an excellent waitress but the food was poor. The 'Potroast' chicken was more like a rather dry Kentucky Fried chicken. Four servings went into a doggy beg for the dogs, almost untouched. The classic Caesar salad was not classic as it was made with iceberg lettuce not cos and the dressing was poor. All in all it was a disappointment.

“Excellent Food, Service, View!!”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

I was really fortunate to be able to have 2 meals at Stables while on a break to Cape Town. The newly built restaurant is very well designed around what must be one of the best mountain views in SA. I found the menu refreshing, the service friendly and attentive without being overbearing, the food was absolutely scrumptious on both occasions. I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant to the most discerning patron. Well done guys keep this up..

“Love it there!!”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

I just love this restaurant. The casual atmosphere of this restaurant is wonderful. Breathtaking views of the mountains and the beautifully manicured gardens makes this fine dining restaurant a pleasure to visit. Sitting outside was a treat as it was so calm and the soft music in the back ground was gorgeous to soak up. Staff are wonderful and friendly and go the extra mile to serve and assit you. What a pleasure to visit this establishment. The new wine tasting section is just so amazing which is the pre amble to ones visit to the restaurant. It comes highly recommended and would frequent it again. Remember to book as it is soooo popular!!
