After a few visits to this beautiful wine farm and restaurant, I am still a very happy customer. Excellent priced, super friendly staff and the food is wholesome, fresh and so tasty. I love Duck and not a lot of restaurants can give me a duck that is better than mine, but I think their duck beats mine! Crispy skin... More

Had a fantastic breakfast in this great setting and then we decided to finish off with their delicious deepfried ice cream! A must have, but probably better after lunch or dinner. We loved it!

I love going to this restaurant for breakfast. It is the perfect way to start a day. Amazing breakfast selection in a beautiful setting. I especially love watching their horses who romp around the fields close to the restaurant.

I live in the Winelands so regularly go to Avontuur for breakfast, brunch or lunch. The setting is magnificent and the service attentive. The food has always been of a high standard and the staff will try and accommodate any requests. One of my favourite wine estate restaurants.

A delicious meal served with warm hospitality. Located in a beautiful setting with a vista of the thoroughbred paddocks. A characteristic cape dutch building houses the restuarant adding to its uniqueness . Menu adequately covers everyone's tastes and is changed frequently to ensure the freshest ingredients. A must do and wonderful memory. (Also offers wine tasting and carries a superb... More

Highly recommended. This place is a true, 5-star, international class restaurant. Entree's present beautifully. They are tasty and of the correct volume and proportion. The service is superb. The setting is on a rolling hillside on a farm overlooking nearby farms and wineries. Prices are reasonable. My wife and I travel constantly and eat at restaurants daily throughout the world....

We went to visit the estate last year and promised ourselves we would be back. My wife and I were not disappointed. Nor were the people we went with, who enjoyed the beautiful surroundings, the sumptuous food and the exceptional wine. And of course the the horses in the surrounding fields are absolutely stunning.
