On a recent visit with friends we enjoyed a delicious meal under the beautiful, shady old trees. Service was attentive and we were soon tucking into tasty, well prepared and presented dishes. The Norwegian salmon was cooked to perfection as was the kingklip. The fillet...steak was tender, cooked just right and was flavourful. Our meals were accompanied by very good, cold, Avontuur wines and was rounded off with excellent coffees. Portions are ample and prices, on a par with most other wine farms. Definitely worth a visit!More

We enjoyed lunch with friends. The food ( especially salmon for my wife ) was excellent as well as the presentation. Service was friendly and attentive, prices - also for wine- are quite reasonable. Value for money is very good.

Beautiful location, and wonderful restaurant experience. Thoroughly enjoyed the food and wine collection, and appreciated good service. Would recommend sitting outside depending on weather or the front part of the restaurant. Enjoyed the duckling which should be pre-ordered ahead of time.

Our waiter was very friendly and soon we had some interesting exchange of information without her being forward. It was raining and we sat indoors. The ambiance was great and the sunset over the vineyards was stunning. Then the food and wine arrived. Both exceptional...in presentation, taste, quality and quantity.More

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.
