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

We return regularly to this conveniently located wine estate restaurant. Our friends have always raved about the duck. So we had to try it, but were forewarned that it would be a large portion. No starters therefore . The duck was indeed splendid, perfectly moist prepared in this wonderful orange sauce. This brought back wonderful old memories. We were so... More

After a bad start today, and not having time left to drive to Hermanus, we decided to have lunch @ Avontuur which was much closer. It was our 2nd visit, but again: what a pleasure! We didn't book, but George welcomed us with an open heart! He arranged a table for us. On the way in we tasted some Avontuur... More

We visited Avontuur for lunch last week. We were impressed with the welcoming, friendly and efficient service. The food was outstanding. The Beef Carpaccio was the very best I had ever had: paper thin slices of beef with beautiful accompaniments including shaved parmesan, capers and anchovy. Other starters included plump mussels in a creamy Thai style sauce and a Seafood... More

We went to this restaurant for a fairly late Sunday lunch - this was not the best time to go as the duck was sold out! On the way to our table we walked past a few people having the duck and it did make us drool. The food was good, but we didn't find it amazing. I had ostrich,... More

A family birthday for 14 was celebrated recently with dinner at Avontuur. The organisation was excellent from the start. The service was 100% perfect, food was delicious, wine excellent and the ambience wonderful. The setting of this restaurant is wonderful with stunning views.
