Overrated. Vergelegen bills itself as one of the traditional vineyards in the Winelands. But it is really just an excuse to make money on the mediocre. The staff at the Stables tries to do its best but in the end its really much ado about nothing. Except the wines, which are really quite good. The place is loud and full... More

We had a lovely Lunch at this Beautifully located Restaurant. Clear Views of The Hottentots Holland Mountains. Unpretentious menu prepared with simple and fresh ingredients . The wine was exceptional. We then spent a few hours wandering around The Beautiful Estate. All in All the perfect afternoon.

I have no idea about what The Stables offers. After I had waited 20 minuts in a more or less restaurant with lots of waiters to give an order I left. I am pretty sure this is not the standard Vergelegen will be known as. But 20 minuts with out any one comes to your table is simply not good... More

After a long stroll in the beautiful gardens we found an outdoor seating at the Stables. After 20 minutes we left as NO waiter felt to attend our table even though a lot of them were present around the premises.

We had been looking forward to this for a while after many recommendations from friends with children. The estate is beautiful. The children's play area is lovely. The service was not...... at some point we wondered if our waiter had gone home. One mix up over a breakfast left someone with the wrong breakfast. Everyone who had eggs enjoyed them.... More

We had a wonderful day walking around in the beautiful gardens of Vergelegen after which we went for lunch. We order special of the day Hake and chips with a bottle of white wine and Vergelegen Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot. Very good. Some of us had salad instead of fish. The healthy ones. The service was good and food arrived on... More

I went for lunch on a Friday afternoon with friends. The interior is contemporary, spacious and light with interesting art pieces, ceramics, oils and appliqué embroidery pieces giving colour to the walls. We sat on the patio with overhead spray mists to help with the heat of the day, overlooking the sumptuous agapanthus display in the beautiful garden. We all... More

This was a real challenge to get a booking, but was so worth the hassle. We had a really enjoyable meal and the wine was sublime.

Great vineyard but a very bad experience in the resteraunt. The waiter, a big white guy with a bad attitude gave lousy service and it was as if we were inconveniencing him by being there. Never did get our order and needless to say, no tip. Perhaps I should have left a tip - find another job, one that doesn't... More
