Sunday lunch on the balcony looking South and enjoying the Vineyards. This Winery is fairly new but the food is very well prepared and tasty even if the wines are still a little young! The service is excellent and very attentive. I have been to a function here a couple of years back and this prompted me to return. The... More

From the Rabbit and eisbein terrine starter, Red roman line fish main and chocolate fondant dessert, everything was great. Great waiter. Will go in summer again to enjoy the view towards Cape Town.

We waited three years to be in South Africa when the restaurants at Longridge Winery and Hidden Valley Winery, Overture, would be open after their winter break so that we could eat in them. It turned out that this year we were in South Africa for the beginning of August and both were open. We made reservations for both restaurants... More

We had a lovely dinner, food was great (we had springbok, duck and lamb) and finished with reconstructed milk tart and yummy bread and butter dessert. Beautiful view towards Cape Town and cozy fireplace for chilly winter evenings. Will definitely visit during the summer to sit outside on the large patio watching sunset!

We recently had lunch at Longridge restaurant and it was a great experience. The atmosphere is very nice and even though it was a cold, rainy day the fireplace created the perfect mood. The view from there is stunning and I can imagine it is even better on clear day. The food was delicious. I would definitely recommend the chicken... More

This is a very nice restaurant located on a wine estate between Stellenbosch and Somerset West on the R44. In summer they have a lovely outside area where the views towards Cape Town and Table Mountain are wonderful. Inside the restaurant is well laid out and cozy in winter. Excellent menu to suit all tastes with a scaled down lunch... More

We had a family lunch here and were a group of 20. the service was really good, the waiter Jan was amazing. Prior to this lunch we often visit Longridge for some cheese and wine and enjoy the beautiful view of false bay. The wine is of good quality and the service more so. Thus I was very excited to...

We had dinner here last night. The food was really excellent. We were served a complimentary amuse bouche of butternut shooter and 3 different breads with herb butter and a beetroot dip. This was superb and I was tempted to fill up before my meal even arrived. The duck breast which we ordered was delicious. A generous portion beautifully cooked... More
