We enjoyed the space and essential furnishing of the restaurant. The well-organized kitchen has delighted us with their specialties'. The Soup with lemon grass was spctacular for my taste, and exacly what I need for start!

After living in close proximity for the past few years, we finally decided to head to Longridge for a much anticipated lunch. Arriving with a toddler and baby is always a tricky task, however the manager, Riaan and our waiter, Quincy immediately made us feel relaxed and welcomed. The views were spectacular from every table and the space and ample... More

Welcomed from the moment we arrived. Elvis our waiter was flawless. Wine selection adequate - would maybe have preferred a bit more choice . Setting wonderful - Starters of Tempura prawns were excellent. For mains I had the Springbok Loin and wife had the Line Fish - both excellent. Definitely a place to revisit.

My companions loved their pasta with mussels and chicken curry mains. My pan fried kingklip was delicious. My only gripe was that the corgetts were slightly gritty. However, I adore the fact that the... More

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 visited this lovely restaurant after they had opened after the winter recess. The tables were tastefully decorated with blushing bride flower arrangements. 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
