Nice place, not quite perfect

Like many wineries, this is a beautiful place. We tasted the wines but weren't bowled over by them. Got placed at a very windy table and had to ask to move. The food was generally excellent, although expected more seafood than three prawns on the seafood pasta. Service was cheerful but not quite as... read more

Longridge is one of our favourite dining lunch spots we took friends there for dinner and were certainly not disappointed. The ambiance, views and organic garden are stunning. The food is well presented by knowledgeable staff from a very interesting menu accompanied by beautiful Longridge wines. Our friends commented on all the food flavours as they said the food tastes...

We booked a table on the patio. It was a very hot day and we were offered the opportunity to sit inside but as the view was very lovely we preferred to sit outside. Was a bit of standing around and confusion as when we arrived there was no one in the restaurant to show us to our table. I... More

This is great spot to visit on a hot summer's day with its cool breezes, picturesque gardens and top class menu. I ordered the vegetarian roulade and it certainly did not disappoint. The flavours and presentation of the food was the best I have seen in my four week visit to SA - and that's not to say I haven't... More

Having eaten at Longridge several times in the past few months with different groups of friends it is such a pleasure to return each time and find the food is as good as the previous visit. The quality of the ingredients and the care in the presentation equates to the wonderful taste of each plate. Friendly and attentive service with... More

Let me start my review by saying my husband and I are locals and live in Somerset West. We recently relocated to the Cape and have spent many happy hours and weekends visiting all the "local" restaurants and wine farms to sample food and wine, which we are particularly passionate about. We literally stumbled across a review on Longridge and... More

We thought it would be something special. But is was average. When you entering the premisses you walk through the garden ( lots of herbs and vegetables) which gives you a certain impression and expectations about the quality of the dinner. Food was good but not very exceptional, rather average. My partner had Springbok which was good, I had a... More

It is actually a pity I did not review Longridge sooner, and I am sorry, I obviously forgot, but I visited Longridge twice last year, pre-vegan and post-vegan, and the latter really impressed me! I was there for a friend's bridal shower and it was a set menu, however I was so kindly offered a vegan meal. A cream of... More

Perfect wine and perfect menu! Do ask for outside seating as you can not miss this beautiful herb garden. Loved their Cab Franc. Great experience all around.
