We visited a few wine farms in the Cape area and Avontuur was certainly one of the best ones we visited. Good weather and good food eating outside always very romantic.

Beautiful weather, beautiful view, fantastic company. The roast duckling was superb, described as crispy on the outside and succulent inside. That is exactly what I got. Good service to go with a great venue and food.

We had a memorial for our Father at this restaurant. Excellent service and food. The staff were most accommodating and flexible with our choice of dishes and ever changing number of guests. We shall certainly be back. Thank you Nicki

Amazing and friendly service . Meals served warm well prepared and presented. The food portions are big so come hungry. A visit to this estate is highly recommended and the wines we got were great. A bit pricey but well worthied.

We had our father's wake at the restaurant. The waiters and matre'd could not have been more accommodating, thoughtful and considerate. The service was excellent. The feedback from the 50 guests all positive and the food delicious. Thank you so much for making this sad event a pleasant memory for us all.

After hearing good things about this restaurant, it feels so good to say: It is all true! Being on a Thursday, and in the middle of winter, the restaurant was not full and we had two waiters at the ready at all times. Both of them, constantly topped up our glasses, and perhaps that is the one thing the management... More

Dear Bluesea It is always great to read such a positive review! Thank you for taking the time to write it. We will most certainly advise our wait staff to be more aware of interruptions and over zealousness! Thanks for bringing it to our attention. It certainly is a fine balance that one has to get right.

An excellent lunch and as good as ever. Service attentive without being at the table every 5 few mins. Again, the food cooked to perfection

On a very cold Cape Winters day we were welcomed to a blazing log fire and great reception. The line fish of the day was hake and it was prepared with a herb crust. It wa simply sublime. The setting is gorgeous and attention to detail excellent

My wife and I arrived at the estate for breakfast. At the entrance the staff was nowhere to be seen, although we did see waiters walking around after we arrived, no one greeted us, leaving us to stand for almost 5 minutes. When we where finally seated our waiter was slow and looked upset she even had to work that... More
