A winelands lunch in the Western Cape is always something to look forward to. Avontuur was on a par. Lovely setting, very nice friendly and not too overpowering service and excellent food. They are famous for their duck we were told and all of us ordered it. Superb. One of the winelands restaurant fundis at our table told us Avontuur... More

Really fabulous food, wine and atmosphere. The views are stunning, the food is really good and the waiters know their stuff and give great service. The platter with the smoked trout is wonderful with their Chardonnay. So too the platter with the duck pate. The deserts were a treat to round out a wonderful meal. Well done all.

After sundowners on the patio with a magnificent sunset, we moved into the restaurant and ordered the chicken breast. The dish was well presented and delicious. All in all a good evening.

Lovely setting... The horses greet you along the way as well as the beautiful white roses next to the fences sets the ambience.The service comes with a smile and the food is deliciously well prepared. The salmon had a very tasty sauce that complimented the dish.The roasted duckling with sauce ( husband ) was also very good. Amazing award winning... More

Excellent service and food. Always appreciate and enjoy my time here, would wholeheartedly recommended it to anyone looking for a great meal out. The outside area is fantastic when there is good weather and the wine tasting just tops it all off, along with the horses and the view. Treat yourself you won't regret it.

I last visited this restaurant 2 years ago and I was very disappointed! So it was with trepidation that my daughter and I decided to have Sunday lunch at Avontuur restaurant. What a pleasant surprise! The outside dining area has been revamped so that just about all the tables can enjoy the magnificent view across the estate with mountains and... More

This is my third review, we simply love this place.Great views, fantastic food and beautiful wines.We are usually lucky to get Allen as our waiter, but David left us without cutlery, and pushed desserts so many times - to the point where it became uncomfortable to say no.We had to top our own glasses through three bottles of wine.Service lacked...
