After sundowners on the patio with a magnificent sunset, we moved into the restaurant and ordered the chicken breast. The dish was well presented and delicious. All in all a good evening.

Excellent service and food. Always appreciate and enjoy my time here, would wholeheartedly recommended it to anyone looking for a great meal out. The outside area is fantastic when there is good weather and the wine tasting just tops it all off, along with the horses and the view. Treat yourself you won't regret it.

What a pleasant surprise! The outside dining area has been revamped so that just about all the tables can enjoy the magnificent view across the estate with mountains and... More

This is my third review, we simply love this place.Great views, fantastic food and beautiful wines.We are usually lucky to get Allen as our waiter, but David left us without cutlery, and pushed desserts so many times - to the point where it became uncomfortable to say no.We had to top our own glasses through three bottles of wine.Service lacked...

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.
