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

This was a real surprise! We were amazed at the total experience at Vergelegen. Not only was the restaurant delightful (good service, straightforward, but good, menu) but the whole complex was great fun. Super tasting, great old houses and beautiful gardens. If you only visit one vineyard in the cape, make it Vergelegen.

We often visit The Stables for breakfast or lunch. It is a wonderful venue as you can enjoy a stroll through the beautiful gardens and the views from the restaurant are delightful. It can get very busy at weekends with families with young children as there is a large playground close by. However, in the week it is usually a... More

We were two senior couples. After exploring parts of this stunning estate we just made it to the Stables for a late breakfast by 11.30am. It is modern, contemporary with lots of glass and light and has a pleasant outdoor terrace. Breakfast averaged R75 excl coffee. What does set it apart are the awesome sculptures and pleasing framed fabric collages/applique... More

We have been to Camphors and assumed the bistro food would be more casual but as good. NOT TRUE Entire experience was poor. Staff attitude was condescending and not helpful. Had to go and ask somebody to serve us!!! Ordered lamb rack. Two were average and fatty and tasteless. Mine had more than an inch of uncooked fat on two... More

Unique sculpture of horse in centre of restaurant sets the tone for a unique experience. Friendly and experienced staff, a range of different meal options, the BEST wines imaginable and spectacular views. An all round feel good experience.
