Love the food, love the wine

I will never ever stop visiting Avontuur estate. This is consistently one of the most magical experiences. Although situated next to a very busy and highly trafficked road, the farm is tranquil and gorgeous. They also rear race horses here and one of the loveliest sights is the horse paddocks... read more

We took a party of 6 for dinner and everyone's meal was excellent. We started with smoked salmon trout, prawn and avo roses which were good. Three of our party then had the roast duckling which was served with an orange and Van der Hum sauce, and as always, was outstanding. Our other guests had the pork steak, the fish... More

I've eaten here a few times and always thoroughly enjoyed the experience, but my most recent one really impressed. It's a gorgeous venue, inside and out, and the atmosphere is delightful, classy but unpretentious. The food is delicious, imaginative and beautifully presented, and I've always found the service very good. Last Saturday, my elderly mom was with us, and was... More

We had lunch here with old friends we have not seen for many years. The restaurant staff allowed us to catch up on our conversations without pushing us to order. When we eventually got around to eating, the food was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious! The roast duck served with orange and Van der Hum sauce is highly recommended.

Picturesque location? Check! Fab food? Check! Great wine? Check! Awesome service? Check! Avontuur Estate Restaurant is on a stud and wine farm. The drive up to the restaurant, with the vineyards on one side and the horses grazing behind white washed fences on the other, already sets the tone: a total change of scenery from the hustle of the city....

Just outside Somerset West on Stellenbosch road. Comfortable eating place with spectacular views towards Table Mountain. Rather limited menu but well prepared, especially duck. Better outside under the umbrellas, a light salad lunch, watching the horses and the views... wow.

Made an unplanned stop at The Avontuur for lunch. The farm has the most spectacular view and calming view. Situationed in the Stellenbosch wineroute and we found the venue to be extremely calming and relaxing. The food was rather delicious. Excellent service received from their wonderful staff. Loved their award winning wines. The only downside is that is wasn't very... More
