While we had popped in for wine tastings before, we had never tried the restaurant until recently. Our last Sunday lunch on the patio overlooking the garden really exceeded all expectations, with fresh and tasty food prepared with creative flair. Service was good, with managers on hand to ensure guests were well looked after. Wine was amazing, with good Longridge... More

The variety catered to everyone's palate and the food was really delicious. I personally also enjoyed the Longridge Chenin Blanc wine and my husband their Merlot! The staff were... More

We revisited Longridge in April and recognized a substantial change. The new Management is very attentive. Service is as good as it always was. Kitchen has further improved as well. Overall a very pleasant evening and experience. We are looking forward to return soon.

Great food and remarkable service and hospitality. One suggestion only is that tables on verandah are offered some form of shelter from the sun.... Gets rather uncomfortable by 2pm....but otherwise stunning as usual.

My wife and I had lunch at Longridge Restaurant in April 2017. The food exceeded our expectations. The wine list is not long and exhaustive, but it is good. The service was exceptional. BUT the best part is the view. You have a beautiful view of the Helderberg / Somerset West area and as you move around on the veranda... More

Longridge Restaurant is one of my regular choices for business dinners and last week I was once again very impressed. We enjoyed a lovely sunset, great atmosphere, and excellent wine and food. Especially the line fish and the dark chocolate terrine were outstanding.

GOURMET WITH A VIEW Enjoy fabulous country cuisine inspired by the freshest seasonal produce from our organic herb and vegetable garden. Culinary consultant Marilou Marais and chef Bruce von Pressentin work closely together to create a journey through each season with menus changing regularly to fully include the freshest ingredients. Each master piece can be perfectly paired with 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. Open Wednesday to Saturday for lunch and dinner and Sunday lunch only.
