We recently had lunch at Longridge restaurant and it was a great experience. The atmosphere is very nice and even though it was a cold, rainy day the fireplace created the perfect mood. The view from there is stunning and I can imagine it is even better on clear day. The food was delicious. I would definitely recommend the chicken... More

This is a very nice restaurant located on a wine estate between Stellenbosch and Somerset West on the R44. In summer they have a lovely outside area where the views towards Cape Town and Table Mountain are wonderful. Inside the restaurant is well laid out and cozy in winter. Excellent menu to suit all tastes with a scaled down lunch... More

We had a family lunch here and were a group of 20. the service was really good, the waiter Jan was amazing. Prior to this lunch we often visit Longridge for some cheese and wine and enjoy the beautiful view of false bay. The wine is of good quality and the service more so. Thus I was very excited to...

We had dinner here last night. The food was really excellent. We were served a complimentary amuse bouche of butternut shooter and 3 different breads with herb butter and a beetroot dip. This was superb and I was tempted to fill up before my meal even arrived. The duck breast which we ordered was delicious. A generous portion beautifully cooked... More

My mom, godfather and I recently had a lovely lunch at Longridge. We turned up without a reservation midday on a Saturday and were shown to an outside table with a perfect view of Table Mountain in the hazy distance. The kitchen garden surrounding the patio is very pretty indeed and the food enjoyable, fairly unpretentious with fresh ingredients. I... More

I went to Longridge for a luncheon. The group was 20 people, booked in advance, and they allocated 1 waiter to serve us drinks, take our orders, serve, clear, serve again, and in between the host had to get up to serve more drinks because the waiter could not cope. There was only 2 other tables occupied at the time,... More

A not so special evening on Valentines day. The set menu was O.K., but it came with an oyster at room temperature. Nothing happened to us, but one of our friends got sick. That is not fine dining.
