We were pleasantly surprised with this exceptional wine cellar and restaurant. The food scores a definite 10. The Springbuck loin was perfectly cooked to order and served with spätzle to die for. Kudos to the kitchen. The wines from their own cellar is excellent and my palette became part of the symphony created by the wine master. I can recommend... More

The meal was beautifully presented and delicious in all aspects. The service too was excellent. Although the view is not as good as other nearby restaurants, we have no hesitation in recommending Long Ridge.

Great food - good service but in first priority the awesome views and setting of this place should be mentioned! Lovely herb and veggi garden! Maybe I shouldn`t praise that much, otherwise pretty soon this place will just be crowded with people been attracted ;-)))

Yesterday my boss took the office out for our annual Christmas lunch and we had the pleasure of going to Longridge. I've never been there before and had no idea what to expect. I was so pleasantly surprised! You get there and you walk through their veggie and fruit gardens, so you KNOW their produce is fresh! Then you see... More

Popped in for lunch yesterday. Excellent service, superb food, fantastic views and great wines. Small eaters so had two starters each, all of which were fantastic. Finished off with a LCHF/Banting dessert of strawberry cheescake on an almond base - sublime. Will be back

Sit overlooking the whole of the scenery between the Helderberg Mountain and Table Mountain and enjoy superb food, good wines and excellent service. It is one of the best meals we have had in the Western Cape recently

Second time at this restaurant with magnificent view up to Table Mountain. Convenient location on R44 between Stellenbosch and Somerset-West. Lovely vegetable gardens right next to the terrace, leading to the wine shop/tasting room. The restaurant has a cosy feel, with a huge wooden table in front of the windows and near the fireplace. Food is outstanding with great value... More

We decided to have one last lunch in the Stellenbosch area before going to the airport for our flight home. This was a random stop and very glad we stopped here and in fact being able to get in without a booking. This probably was the best food that we had eaten whilst in the stellenbosch area of which there... More

Love this fine dining restaurant! It is just the most perfect setting for a romantic meal or celebrating a special occasion. The view is spectacularly scenic and the food is of the highest quality. I love to fine dine, but some restaurants are simply not affordable for the average working class. Longridge however gives you one of the best fine... More
