Fantastic food and brilliant service. Reasonably priced and in an amazing setting surrounded by horse paddocks. It is small and intimate with a homely feel to the restaurant. Would highly recommend.

This restaurant has it all! Set in the heart of the Stellenbosch Winelands, this beautiful restaurant overlooks horse paddocks. Beautifully presented and delicious cuisine is served in an upmarket, but cosy setting with great atmosphere.

Breakfast which was faultless except that the breakfast menu is rather limited in choice. Lovely views over the farm. Tranquil, and enough parking. Staff attentive and friendly. Food nicely presented.

We both had the exquisite beef fillet. Both we're perfectly cooked as per our order. The mushroom and rosemary sauce is amazingly tasty, but delicate enough to just compliment the fillet to perfection. The reserve Shiraz is one of the best our country has to...offer. This restaurant competes strongly with those we've experienced in France and Italy. Well done team Avontuur, you make is proud to be South African!More

We had a wonderful dining experience at Avontuur; the service was fantastic - our server was not only extremely compentent, she was kind and funny and engaged our 10 year old beautifully. The food was delicious, and catered well for our tastes including the vegetarian...at the table. To top it off we enjoyed a gorgeous sunset and a relaxed, local feel. Highly recommended.More
