  • Outstanding food and prize winning wine. If organic and bio-dynamic principles are important to you, then you will certainly enjoy this restaurant very much. What a great experience! On Saturday evening we had dinner, with a beautiful view from the terrace shortly after sunset. One can sense that there is a truly great team of staff assembled under one roof. Under the expert eye (and with a wealth of international experience) Riaan Mol (Restaurant Manager) is destined to take Longridge Restaurant to a top 10 venue in the future (I predict). The team’s passion for organic and bio-dynamic ethos is evident in the food, herb & vegetable gardens outside the restaurant (managed by Sally Raats, an American, with experience making wine in New Zealand & able to speak Afrikaans -wow!). Executive chef Maritz Jacobs is truly phenomenal, and I am glad that I asked to meet him after falling in love with a great aubergine meal that he prepared to absolute perfection. The pleasant and knowledgeable Sommelier, James Bongers was helpful in selecting the perfect wine to go with our meals. Perfect venue for lunch and dinner with good food & wine, spectacular views as well as supporting sustainable farming methods.

  • The location of the restaurant makes for wonderful views over the vineyards, the sun set behind Table Mountain and Cape Town's city lights. The restaurant is elegantly decorated, yet with clear individualistic quirks and style.

    The dinner itself was lovely. Our waiter was very friendly - and it was a great touch that the chef himself came by after dinner to ensure we had a good meal. The food was a bit expensive, but good portion sizes and amazing quality made us pay the bill with a smile.
    I would definitely recommend Johan's at Longridge for a special night out!

  • Good service, good wines, very, very good food from Chef Bruce, especially the Norwegian salmon, done to perfection, and the starter of three different tempura seafood. Regularly serviced bathrooms. To be recommended!

  • We knew Longridge Wines but not the restaurant situated between Somerset West and Stellenbosch, called Johan's, on the estate, so were not sure what to expect. A scenic location with views as promised of Table Mountain, and a contemporary venue, surrounded by beautiful, well tended and nurtured vegetable gardens, the work of Chris Olivier, at this Dutch owned estate, where we were warmly greeted by charming informed staff augered well. The lovely indoor and outdoor dining areas, uniquely beautiful locally produced crockery, and artful design, intrigued and pleased us. With a menu from Dutch chef Marissa Chandansing and her team from an open kitchen, the excellent Longridge wines, with a further choice of other labels, this has to be one of the most delightful relative newcomers to the area. We will be back.

  • We had a fantastic dinner at Longridge the other night. It is a beautiful restaurant, service was perfectly attentive and the wine pairings spot on. The food was the show-stopper - fresh salad from the garden served with home made ricotta and interesting condiments, fennel risotto with stumpnose followed by a gingerbread and butter pudding. I highly recommend this new restaurant.
