It didn't start too well as the specific table our host had booked and double checked would be available was not available. We were eventually seated at the furthest table on the stoep - OK but not great. However, the distance from the centre of activity resulted in the service being "patchy" and frustrating. My meal (vegetarian) was unexciting -... More

After reading precious reviews i feel obligated to share my experience at this amazing wine estate. We were fortunate enough to get a table on New years Eve and from beginning to end Longridge managed to create a memorable end to 2015. We arrived to sundowners and tapas on the patio which allowed us to relax and watch the sun... More

Longridge is one of my favourite restaurants in the Stellenbosch area. The view is amazing and the food is excellent (I missed Bruce's superbe influence to the menu, though). A lunch or even better a dinner at this winery with its fantastic MCC and wines is a must. Will be back soon again!

Whilst other members of my dinner party enjoyed their food my lamb was of poor quality and mostly inedible. I don't think this is typical but we would now prefer to go elsewhere.

Winery, tasting room and restaurant. Beautiful sunset views from the lawn, wine selection meets expectations and food is top quality. Langoustines as good as in stockholm in august, parsley and vegetables full and fresh flavour (grown in garden of restaurant). Worth a detour. As with most places in SA remarkably inexpensive by european standards for this level of quality.

I had a business lunch at Longridge Restaurant and was my first time there. I wonder why I hadn't been to this gem before. The food was first class. I recommend the homemade fishcakes any day. The line fish of the day was yellow tail and was so tasty. They are not shy of their portions either. The setting and... More

This was our third New Year's Eve at Longridge. The 6 course meal with accompanying wines costs €60 per head and is very extensive. All the wines are from the estate. Our server Ronald was excellent. The view extends across Cape Town with Table Mountain in the background. As night fell we saw the sun set; the lights of Cape... More
