I fell in love with The Stables Restaurant and the Vergelegen wine estate when we first visited in 2009 and have lost track of just how many times we have been back since. On arrival in the Western Cape, the first place we head for is Vergelegen for breakfast on the outdoor terrace. It marks the start of our holiday.... More

My husband and I had lunch here and ordered the Thai Beef salad! It was a delicious, healthy and tasty meal and our waitress Yasmina was lovely. Beautiful airy venue on a hot summer day. Nothing to complain about...a positive enjoyable experience!

While the salad was not bad, the chips cannot be recommended. Oily, burnt only begin to describe. What a pity. The view is fabulous .

We booked for lunch at the Stables at the Vergelegen Estate. We took an hour to walk through the beautiful grounds and manicured gardens for an hour before our reservation fell due. That is where the enjoyment ended. I cannot remember being so disappointed in a meal in a long time. EVERYTHING that was served to each of us at... More

On arrival we were told that they had no record of our booking that we had made weeks before. Glen, the so called, manager, was rude, unhelpful, did not apologise and eventually, grudgingly, gave us a terrible table that he insisted we give back within an hour. We ordered two sirloin steaks. They were incinerated and totally inedible. We sent... More

We have been regulars here for many years, always our favourite spot for lunch on the way to the airport at the end of a great holiday. When we last visited in Feb 2016 we felt it had lost it's sparkle but we decided to give it another chance. Today's lunch was very poor. The service was ok, although our... More

Lovely location, interesting buildings and gardens. Our lunch was a big disappointment. The starters were excellent and we were looking forward to an enjoyable meal. The main course was slow in coming despite the restaurant not yet being busy, 12.30. When it arrived the entire meal was cold and the chips looked as though they were a few days old.... More

What a fantastic place - beautiful house with so much history and very knowledgable guides around to give extra stories about the families that have lived there. The gardens were amazing really worth spending the day there. We were too late for lunch so had puddings and drinks - fab!
