I enjoyed the Crispy Thai Beef Salad and my wife the Kingklip line fish of the day. My mother order the lamb rack, but was not as impressed given the price. The Chardonnay wine was very good. The baked chocolate cake, cremé brulee desserts we had was excellent. The short bread and apple strudel was not as good. The restaurant... More

Booked a table for six for lunch yesterday, being Saturday. Four are from the area but we were in our car for a two-hr drive. Cannot fault the staff or the location or the overall ambience but we didn't rate the food very highly & its our 3rd visit. I cannot speak for the others but certainly for my husband... More

My husband and I have lunch at Stables at least once a week. We always just chance it and always manage to get a table outside (our favorite). The food is simply and good. The staff, very attentive. The views, just fabulous!

This was our first visit to The Stables on the picturesque Vergelegen estate, with its beautiful gardens and mountain views. The food, wine and service were all first class. It will not be our last visit!

This is one of the oldest and beautifully established estates in Somerset West. Well worth a visit to stroll round the lovely gardens. Great for Brunch, with a real family buzz at weekends. Lovely location to just visit for wine tasting too but definatley give yourselves time to have a proper look around the wonderfully manicured estate with the mountain... More

One of our favorite eateries in Somerset West in a great location. We enjoy the good food, eating whilst looking out at the Hottentots Holland mountain range. There is also a playground for children which is fantastic. Try the burgers, they are rumored to be the best in town!

Vergelegen's own wines are naturally a major part of the show. Food is very good, and the staff helps you to pair it with their wines. The kitchen is traditional, international, with a local twist. The view to the gardens with the mountains in the horizon is spectacular. On a sunny day it is a pleasure to sit outdoors on... More

We hadn't made a plan or reservation to eat lunch in the restaurant and on the sunny day we visited it was busy. However, the team there were very accommodation and found us a table outside looking out towards the Hottentots Holland Mountain range - it is worth eating lunch for the view alone! The staff were helpful and friendly... More

We booked this restaurant for Sunday lunch, our last day in South Africa. We had high expectations and had booked it a month in advance. We arrived slightly late and although our table had been cancelled the staff were able to give the seven of us a new table. From here the afternoon became progressively worse. The restaurant was very... More
