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

This has got to be one of the greatest locations in the Western Cape. Big Money, Big Dreams and Big Views over amazing gardens. Our waitress, Elizabeth was great fun and knew exactly how read us. The food was very normal but looked good and my pizza which I never complained about had capers fried in "rancid" oil. Once I... More

The scenery: simply breathtaking. On the menu: Crisp Vergelegen Chardonnay '14. Thyme roasted portobello with butternut pizza (oh my word - delicious). Thai beef salad with vegetable noodles and chilli soya dressing. Fish cake (starter) with caper aioli and greens... All impeccable. Pity the cheese cake and ice cream with choc sauce were both a little disappointing. Stables is such... More

This was a special occasion; and so was the setting ... BREATHTAKING! The restaurant was not extremely busy at the time; still had to wait 40+ minutes for our food - received apologies from the waiter; who brought us the lemon pieces a good 40+ minutes after we asked for it ... And when the food finally made it to... More

Pleasant lunch with great ambience. Food is good and the gardens exquisite. Kids loved the playgrounds and the bamboo forest. The museum, camphor trees and the yellow wood tree ensure the visit to the farm is well worth it.

I took my fiancée for her birthday lunch here yesterday the 9th of May. Appart from the beautiful setting we found ourselves in, the food was outstanding. My fiancée ordered the fillet steak with bearnaise and hand cut chips. The steak was prepared exactly to order and was succulent and delicious. The sauce and chips rounded out the meal perfectly....
