We were accommodated at the last minute and even though we had a table in the rear of the restaurant we had great views of the sunset over Cape Town and Table mountain. We walked around the organic vegetable garden with some complimentary MCC wine while we waited for our starters. My steak was possibly the best Ive ever tasted.... More

The location is very very nice and the restaurant looks very fancy, that's why you expect an excellent meal. The portion size wasn't really an issue but for the price and size you would expect something exceptional, but it was nothing to write home about.

We have been to Longridge several times and we've never been disappointed. Beautiful view from your table, friendly efficient service, nice estate wine and fantastic and interesting food. Where else can you order skaapstertjies, rolled lambs rib or Malayan curry, all wonderfully tasty and worth while! And the menu is in English as well as Afrikaans, which will make it... More

On our regular Thursday day out we deceided to go for a 'proper' lunch and picked Longridge. I have been before, but this was a first time for Phil. Glorious sunny day and the views are fantastic. It was a smallish menu but enough to chose from and a good wine list. The staff are very friendly, good service and... More

We're a group of 9 people and we decided to have lunch at Longridge as we really appreciate the wines. Service is very good and the staff is friendly and helpful. Good option to go with the kids as they have kids menu and it's a big portion. Hard to choose what to eat from the menu, everything looks delicious.... More

Unbelievable experience yet again. Food to die for, I daydream about their malva pudding all too often. Will definitely be back when we are in Stellenbosch again. Thanks so much!

Longridge is by far the best kept secret among the Winelands restaurants. Excellent food, service, ambience and spectacular view. Their Emily Chardonnay/Pinot Noir blend is to die for. Can't wait to return.

Several management changes at long ridge. Front of house and in the Kitchen. The lady chef who had been there on our previous visit has moved on and the new Head Chef was not in place for this visit. The meal was OK, but not up to their usual high standard. I am sure the new head chef will soon... More

An unbelieveable experience! It starts with the most beautiful organic herb garden. From the moment we entered Longridge we were warmly welcome by lovely people! A fantastic manager, Riaan Mol, and the best chef ever, Maritz Jacobs!! The food is something out of this world, so beautifully dished and the flavours spoiled my tastebuds! I am now officialy a regular... More
