GOURMET WITH A VIEWEnjoy fabulous country cuisine inspired by the freshest seasonal produce from our organic kitchen garden. Culinary consultant Marilou Marais and our chef Bruce von Pressentin work closely together to create a culinary journey through each season. Each culinary master piece can be perfectly paired with the 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.

Nice view, nice staff, nice food.

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

I guess it would be unrealistic to credit the restaurant with the natural view and surroundings. Tonite the evening was gorgeous. Calm and still, no wind and a most beautiful evening. All of this was complimented by this wonderful restaurant. We arrived early and were very happy to sit outside and wait for our table. We were afforded the choice... More

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 positive or on the ball as... 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
