We have been going to Avontuur for over 10 years and I can honestly say that the experience is always extraordinarily satisfying! But last night was even more spectacular. It was our first time for an evening meal and I got to say it was superb: the setting, the food and the service were absolutely delightful, our guests were truly... More

Had a marvelous lunch here. Staff are friendly, setting is incredible and the food was outstanding. Not a very big menu, but some unique and tasty dishes on offer that you're bound to find appealing. I recommend the place and will be heading back here when in the area.

The food was outstanding well presented and delicious. Our party had varied dishes and nobody had any food they did not enjoy. Beautiful views, smiling and helpful staff. Went there twice once for lunch and then for dinner.

Great food at a great restaurant with great views. Avontuur is perfect for lazy summer days enjoying wine perfectly paired with fine cuisine. We had a family lunch here and thoroughly enjoyed it from starter to dessert. Personally I was just a bit underwhelmed with the meat platter, hence the four stars from myself. Very friendly and helpful staff. We'll... More

Classic food and wine pairing, good service and well prepared food. Great for eating a quick lunch, will you be blown away by the food? Probably not but the scenery and view will definitely leave you speechless. Beautiful estate with helpful and warm staff. It need that something extra special and this place will definitely shine as a jewel.

We only live 10 minutes away from Avontuur, but if we want to spoil ourselves this is the place we go. Great views, great food and special cheerful service😘. If you can persuade them to sell you a loaf of bread, it will be the best thing you've done all year👏

On Monday 19th December 2016, friends from Johannesburg and ourselves decided to go to Avontuur Estate restaurant and had a wonderful meal. The food, presentation and service was really good. As recommended, we all had the duck for our main and that was really good. Chicken livers and a salmon dish were the starters and we had pannacotta and the... More

We ate here after wine tasting over the road at Ken Forrester. The wine tasting lasted longer than we expected and we needed somewhere close by. But what a good find! Service was excellent, even though it was 2.45pm. We chose a table outside on the terrace with beautiful views over the Heldeberg. My friend chose a platter, whilst I... More
