We had a fantastic evening at Avontuur. The kingklip was simply fabulous, and I just love the way everything is prepared with the freshest of ingredients, and is beautifully presented. These people are passionate about food. The personal service also made the evening special. Thank your- we will be back!

Breathtaking views upon arrival and yet not a single smile to greet you! The service was shocking and slow, even though we were the only table! When we were eventually served, we waited around 20/25 minutes for juices/coffees. When asking for a change to a meal we were met with an irritated attitude and it seemed to be an effort. I specifically asked twice for soft egg and yet still got a hard egg.When asked by the owner whether we enjoyed our food, only when I went to the bathroom, I said I would speak to her later. I was at our table for another half hour and yet she still didn't come near our table. The waitress that we had, seemed to make everything an effort. When it came time to pay, I told the waitress that it does not make me happy to give a tip. She did not even have the decency to query why or ask if/what the problem was. For such beautiful, tranquil surroundings this first (possibly last) visit was most disappointing and not recommended.

For weeks I have been reading the reviews about Avontuur and last night we had the pleasure of enjoying first hand what everyone was talking about! Beautiful view, warm and welcoming reception and excellent food! ! ! The personalized service was a really nice touch and we found to portions to be generous and well priced. The perfect setting for a celebration, a lovely night (or day!) out or just to enjoy true winelands hospitality at its best! Thank you Zunia for making our evening so memorable

I attended my first networking breakfast at the Avontuur Estate Restaurant on Wednesday morning and absolutely loved it. I learnt so much from Karl 'the networking guy' great inspirational talk.Thanks for giving us easy practical tips and ideas we can apply in our businesses that will help us to our networking skills. Well done Zunia, the team and Avontuur for creating this amazing platform we can use to meet other like minded business people whilst enjoying a fabulous breakfast and some great wines. I will definitely be there for the next networking session - hope to see you there!! Margi Hoffe - The Ultimate Inner Edge - live blood analysis Practitioner, Reiki Master and Intuitive Life Coach
