Recently we booked a table for seven at Longridge restaurant. Our table was outside and we enjoyed the beautiful gardens and stunning scenery. The surrounding gardens provide a perfect back drop for any meal. We ordered a variety of starters, mains and desserts all of which were very nice. The only suggestion that I would make in terms of the... More

This is one of our 'local' restaurants, and we frequent it many times during the course of the year. Whether summer and dining outside or winter by the fireplace, Longridge is great! The food, the Longridge wines, and the service has always been excellent, and therefore it is one of our most favourite places to go whether on a whim,... More

South Africa on the whole is very good with regard to our Restaurants providing several Vegetarian options, but the meal I had at Longridge was one of the best ever! It was called Vegetarian Saltimboca - absolutely brilliant. The view is great and there is a beautiful deep Colonial patio that runs right around and provides shade, while still eating... More

It has been a few years since we were last at Longridge, and what an improvement! There have been some major upgrades of both kitchen and dining areas, but I still don't feel that they are maximising their position and the incredible views around them. The tables are set back from the edge of the hill where the winery is... More

This what dining out is all about! I took friends from Durban there and the experience from arriving at the restaurant right through to the desert was exceptional. The food is prepared with care and it shows! None of the dishes were "over designed" but had subtle unusual flavours achieved by using fresh( and I am sure organic) ingredients. This... More

We celebrated my mothers birthday yesterday and the lunch was just perfect. The staff was kind and attentive and the food was just superb! What a treat :) Every dish was exquisite and beautifully presented. We had a delicious Longringe merlot from 2012 and it was perfected to this lovely lunch. The views are astounding and I can strongly recommend... More

This is a must for the view, food and wine! Makes you feel very close to nature with their own vegetable garden right there. Good service as well!

We celebrated my wife's birthday here on 2nd January, our second visit. We have eaten at all the top Stellenbosch restaurants and this is the finest cuisine we have experienced. The flavours were very unusual but they all really worked. The unostentatious service was briliant. The ambiance in the restaurant could be improved : better furniture and crockery are suggested....
