Had lunch at Longridge. Only one other table still there for lunch. Service was shocking. Had to get up and ask for a serviette and again for salt and black pepper. Had to keep waiving at the waiters for service. Views are fantastic, but not worth going due to poor service. Food was very average. Group had bobotie lentils which... More

The best restaurant in this entire region. I had the best lamb shank in the world!!!! Beautiful scenery, better wine and exceptional service. If you ever end up at this absolutely stunning venue ask for "The Emily".

We were welcomed by the friendly manager Marie Lou. As senior citizens we were shown the special winter menu for pensioners ( on Wednesdays an Thursdays)as well as the other luncheon menu. The lunch was excellent. I... More

An exceptional experience. The Hostess was friendly on arrival and showed us to a table away from the hustle and bustle. As we had a little one with us it was perfect. The Service was informative and helpful, the food exceptional creative and very tasty. My famiy have subsequently returned several more times. Well done guys.

The waiters were unfriendly, and disappeared for long periods of time. They were unable to provide a menu or pricelist for hot drinks. Eventually the waiter verbally rattled of a list of teas and coffees, but I had to specifically enquire about prices. Their wine is unaffordable. The food is also overpriced. No clean plates or cutlery was provided when... More

The spring rolls were small and so dried out. What has... More

Great views! Nice food, friendly service. It's nice for sundowners, and then a nice dinner, seeing the lights of the city far far away. Have been there a few times for large functions too, and they managed well with the catering for so many folk

We had never been to Longridge, but had always wanted to go for a wine tasting. On arrival we weren't greeted or welcomed in a friendly manner.... despite the welcome we decide to stay. The wine wasn't bad, but, as wine experts, we found it a bit too expensive. Longridge is situated in a very beautiful region of Stellenbosch and... More
