I like the Longridge restaurant because chef Maritz creates excellent dishes. Especially the starters are fabulous. The service is fine. The interior is a little shabby, but the view is spectacular.

Description
Enjoy fabulous country cuisine inspired by the freshest seasonal produce from our organic herb and vegetable garden. Culinary and sommelier consultancy team Somm and chef Maritz Jacobs 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 and roaring fire place in winter.
