Sublime food, magnificent views of surrounding vineyards, champion race horses in their paddocks and distant mountains .... but there is more to this restaurant - it has a real heart and soul with Zunia & Mel at the helm!

This is our favourite restaurant and we have eaten here many many times during the 10 years we've been living in Somerset West. The setting is stunning and we always book for very special family celebrations and when we want to entertain visitors. We know it will be a class act and we are never disappointed. The staff are so... More

One of the most beautiful settings and enjoyable lunches. Being Celiac, I asked waiter what they have for people that have Gluten problems, unfortunately he failed to pass this test with recommendations that were uninformed. I can only ask management to teach staff and maybe learn a little more about this themselves, for those people that really struggle with this... More

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
