GOURMET WITH A VIEW Enjoy fabulous country cuisine inspired by the freshest seasonal produce from our organic herb and vegetable garden. Culinary consultant Marilou Marais and chef Bruce von Pressentin work closely together to create a journey through each season with menus changing regularly to fully include the freshest ingredients. Each master piece can be perfectly paired with elegant wines from the Longridge cellar. The relaxed and informal atmosphere is the perfect showcase for the incredible panoramic views sweeping over False Bay with glorious sunsets over Table Mountain.

Lovely place and beautiful view

We went there on a Thursday night and we had an aperitif outside. The view is amazing and the whole area is very relaxing. We could have stayed there all night but the smell of the food was to hard to handle as we were very hungry so we went and eat. The food was amazing! We were all very... read more

Longridge never fails to disappoint. The food is outstanding, the service top notch. We have been several times recently and on each occasion we would give Longridge 5 stars. The views from the verandah, are spectacular, particularly at sunset, whilst enjoying a glass of their delicious champagne.

The experience complement the special day. We where a table of 7. We receaved very good service from well trained waiter. Food pricing aligned to hi quality and well presented. The soft live music on the day was unexpected but added that special touch.

I haven't had abalone in years, so the abalone starter was a must, and it didn't disappoint. It came on top of a warm welcome, and snappy, understated service, in a lovely setting with a large log fire warming up the chilly not quite winter evening. For the main course I had rabbit, neatly wrapped in pork belly. It was... More

My husband and I loved our leisurely dinner here. Shared a fabulous Pinot noir. I had delicious kingclip and my husband a beef filet. Both excellent. Atmosphere is so cozy with fireplaces going, and love the contemporary design with open view of the kitchen. Highly recommend .

I have been to Longridge a few times and it has been consistently good. The view at night with distant sparkles of lights below is special but so is the daytime setting. The food and service never disappoints, really fresh and inspired. Although the menu is quite pricey. I think it is worth it!

Great location and very friendly staff. Starters were slightly disappointing, especially my red salad. Lacked strawberries and beetroot in my opinion. The rose fizz whilst pleasant didn't really work with it from my perspective. I had the pork belly, and as you would expect it was fatty and a touch disappointing. My husband had the chicken pie and he thought... More
