A must do for fine food lovers

Had several lunches at Longridge and every time I was pleasantly surprised. The menu is appealing and the quality if more than good. And this all with good wines for a reasonable price.

The restaurant was fairly quiet on a Wednesday night but the big fireplaces were most inviting! Only longridge wines are available as a wine selection- 2007 cab was lovely and opened up nicely once it was decanted. Starters were really tasty and well presented. Prawn tempura and the seafood ravioli was what we shared and both were superb. Mains of... More

This wine estate serves excellent meals to compliment their excellent wines. We arrived early for sundowners and enjoyed the spectacular sunset over Table Mountain. Our food was well prepared and delicious. The staff was friendly and professional. Longridge wines are world renowned and they even had a few older vintages for purchase

Went as recommendation and to get a particular wine/brut. The tasting seemed forced and cramped with a mixture of wines that were all good but only two stood out. One of which was a special request to taste but wasn't originally offered. I ended up buying three bottles of that one. Meal was very nice if overly fussy for what... More

The bufet was really poor, we had to walk in line for 1O minutes to get food ' upon arrival half of the food was gone , the quality of food was very poor, it was cold, tasteless ..... The explanation was that tne restaurant was closed and a caterer took over. Overall terrible

Food is tasteful and well prepared. I enoyed steak with rosti, served with an excellent wine reduction sauce. Although my steak (I asked for medium-rare) was medium, it was tasty and tender. An excellent range of local wines available.

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... 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.
