“Great food and wine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

I asked in a previous review if there was any end to the quality dining to be had in the stellenbosch area, apparently not. Avontuur closer to Somerset West than Stellenbosch was our latest find. A simple lunch kingklip with a herb crust for him and a perfectly cooked filet of beef with a mushroom sauce for her. Simple maybe but perfectly cooked food accompanied by the excellent estate wines. Do try the deep fried ice cream with an excellent butterscotch sauce you won't be disappointed.

“Location, food service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2012

The view over the vineyards certainly doesn't hurt while enjoying fresh, locally sourced, superb food! Their wines are brilliant, and the menu changes often. Service always friendly and spot on. Bookings are very good idea!

“Watch your bill!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012 via mobile

Food was very good as usual however, water wasn't brought to the table even though we asked twice for it and when paying the bill monies were 'added on' . Luckily we spotted it but soured the evening. We will ALWAYS leave a tip and comment on great service, so no need to add monies on- very, very dissapointed. Sadly this seems to happening alot in restaurants so please check the amount before you pay!

Thank you for your commentary. Our loyal waiter misread your handwriting when it came to paying the bill, when you queried this with him he immediately saw that he had made a mistake and refunded the difference to you. He also immediately notified management of his mistake. We at no point add anything on to any bill. Many thanks and we hope that you will continue your patronage at Avontuur.
