Good food, but service is a bit slow (in comparison with Gauteng) Excellant green salad and pasta dishes. Cocktail menu can be improved.

Avanti Woodlands has become our second home! We absolutely love it here and even the kids ask to go to Avanti. The food is excellent and the wine list to match it. Kiddies menu is spot on! Very good service from the waiters. We always...More

Stopped over in Bloem en route to the coast not knowing what we’d find...and we found a gem that’s worth going back for. Accommodated without a booking, great service and excellent meal. Definitely worth a visit

We had the Pizza Modena (pizza with salami, feta and I asked for avocado as well) and Pizza de Pollo (with chicken). The base is not too thick and very delicious!

Probably the best of fine dining in Bloem. A little pricey but you pay for what you get, great menu and always good service. Starters are interesting and mains are well portioned. If you want to spoil your partner this is the spot.

I've been to Avanti a few times and the food has never been disappointing! The service has also been very good every time. I would highly recommend the seafood pizza and the chili prawn pasta.
