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.

Beautiful setting and great food!

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

We were there for the second time and really enjoyed the food and the setting as well as the excelent staff. The springbock was great and the herbs and vegetables come directly from their garden. They also bake their own bread. It is real good value for money. We will go there again!

Nothing to complain every thing is excelent. The choice at the menu, the service and the venue. We have been there for dinner and lunch. I prefer lunch because of the view. In the wintertime we sit next to the fireplace and in the summer, of course at the terras. The presentation of the food is beautiful and the wines... More

1st time visit to the restaurant. We were impressed about the setting. Very nice outside area, excellent views. The food was good and solid, service good but has some space for improvements. Wine list limited to the wines from the estate, but ok. We had some bigger groups which made it a little bit noisy. Good place to go on... More
