We have been several times in this beautiful estate for dinner and definitely will come again. Unfortunately the restaurant is open only on Wednesday and Friday for dinner. On the remaining weekdays it closes already at 5 PM. My personal favorite is the roasted duck, which I eat over and over again.

WE stayed again at Avontuur. The food and the service was excellent. We could enjoy to sit outside, all other people jumped inside, so we had a good time at our own.

Avontuur is situated just outside Somerset West. The outside setting is beautiful, overlooking vineyards and grazing horses. Breakfast/Brunch is very tasty and the service is good. Will most definitely be back.

Views to die for and the food and wine are some of the best in the winelands. Winter lunches are very cosy in front of a roaring log fire with excellent red wine!!

We had a special occasion lunch and really enjoyed the experience!!! Service good, food good, lovely wines and a view to die for! The portions were more than adequate and the menu had enough variety and interesting dishes. We will be back.

We were introduced to Avontuur as a Breakfast location by a friend and went twice. Both times the food and service were good and having breakfast overlooking the winelands is infinitely better than sat indoors looking at walls and plastic decoration. Will definitely go again as it is a very relaxing Breakfast location.

Have a look at the number of cars in front and you know why you rather book in advance. The food is excellent and the price range is ok. The views down to the cape are stunning.

South Afica western cape. Cannot recommend it too highly. I have been here for a month, based in Somerset West area but travelled around a bit from there. Avontuur was 10 mins away with its stunning views, terrific food, great customer care and general ambience. Dozens of similar wineries in this Stellenbosch area. Go! February is hot.

We have been to Avontuur several times over the years and always used to take visitors for breakfast because it was so good. Never again! Poor service, poor food and poor value. The "full" breakfast was SAR85 and the sausages were just tiny left overs, the toast was dry and cold, like the rest of the plated meal the single... More

We had two amazing dishes, ostrich and beef fillet, both extraordinary dishes with excellent sauces and vegetables. This is by far the best food we've had in the whole province ever, service was friendly and the scenery was absolutely beautiful and very relaxing with a clear view of the horses and paddocks.
