If you holiday or live in the Helderberg area and insist on the best in food and drink, served in pleasant surroundings by attentive and friendly staff, then follow my advice and book lunch (or supper) at the Avontuur restaurant. I recommend this after having been disappointed in one respect or the other by very many other establishments while Avontuur... More

This is a strange restaurant. If the weather is fine and one can sit outside with a view of mountains and the horses in the field it is delightful. But, if it is not good weather and the seating is inside it is uncomfortable. The dining room is not well designed and feel squashed. The venue us good for breakfast.

Had breakfast on the patio, lovely view, friendly staff and the AV breakfast (Avontuur breakfast) was great on a perfect Cape winters day. During a previous visit we did the wine tasting with cheese platter which was excellent. Beautiful farm!!

This was our first visit to the Wine Estate and Restaurant. Five of us selected different options from the menu and all were exquisite. The chef greeted us, visited our table and saw us out and we gave him the accolades he deserved. I had the lamb chops and was given generous portions perfectly cooked to my requirements. Needless to... More

On a cold winter's day we visited the restaurant and enjoyed well prepared food, served beautifully in generous portions. The service was friendly and courteous. Can certainly endorse the recommendations given previously, by others, for the beef carpaccio and the crispy duck. The sirloin steak on the bone was also a treat. Wine was also well priced and locally sourced... More

2nd visit. First time wine, now lunch. Beautiful setting on a horse ranch/wine farm. Bistro like kitchen with hearty lovely dishes. Ordered the two different platters which were reasonably priced, but there was more salad than other things. Slightly disappointing. Only one piece of cheese on two platters... Service impeccable. Overall, a nice small venue suitable for any meal of... More
