We had the most amazing bfast today sat outside on the beautiful terrace . . The waiter David was super friendly and attentive. I had the salmon with cream cheese capers caviar fresh greens and pancakes it was truly delicious, whilst my hubby enjoyed the...full English . We did a wine tasting after with Lovemore and again his friendliness & wine knowledge was second to none ! We then had a tour of the hotel by the owner Phillip …. and now you see why his staff are like they are … most helpful and friendly… This is a truly beautiful and well run, friendly place and we will definitely come back to stay . Thanks and well done AVONTUUR 👏👏👏😀More

We both had The A.V. breakfast, one with scrambled egg, one with sunny-side-ups. We liked - the presentation, the fairly generous portions, and it was tasty. We disliked - the "grilled tomatoes". Grilled is not just a quick 'tssst' on the hot pan, but grilled!...Our grilled tomatoes were 80% raw. One cannot please all the people all the time, but we prefer less-well done bacon - ours was hard yet not crisp. The service was adequate, though we got the feeling we were just a number on the seating plan. A suggestion: The restaurant was fairly full, and the noisy chatter bounced around the place. There is nothing on the walls or floor to absorb this noise and make for a more peaceful experience. A couple of well-placed tapestries or carpets would go a long way to dampening down the noise.More

I have visited Avontuur several times recently (Covid times) and the arrangements have been excellent and whenever possible we have sat outside. The service was friendly and on the occasions we have been celebrating friends birthdays the event was a great success. The breakfast menu...has sufficient variety to suit all tastes and served hot to all on the table. Quite a feat when there’s a substantial rowd.More

I have never been disappointed. It does not matter if it is wine tasting or the restaurant, the service is friendly, food outstanding and the atmosphere is fantastic. The maitre d’ is always there but not over bearing and, the location is spectacular. I love...this place and the Chardonnay is delicious.More

In February, I arranged a lunch at 'Avontuur', which was my personal choice, as was a dinner at a Cape Town restaurant. They were to celebrate my birthday, without 'fuss not fanfare', so I specifically wanted the regular a la carte menu, and no birthday...'trappings' - at both, just close friends and family. On the Sunday a gloriously sunny day, after my birthday, we lunched outdoor at 'Avontuur', As I knew it would be, Zunia, Michael, Mike and the kitchen team provided superb food and service. Their very special hospitality, combined with that beautiful view, and of course not just 'another wine estate', a very special stud farm, and more, was loved by those who had been here, and those to whom this wonderful experience was new. Surrounded by some famous estates, it is well worth seeking out if you have not been, a menu that encompasses something for everyone, with appealing 'specials' always, and happily, still affordable!More

The food, wine and service is excellent! I would have scored a 5 but, the ladies cloakroom is a disgrace!! Really not clean. It’s no good adding fancy toiletries if the ceramics are filthy and the tiles are falling apart!!More

Dear Arlene thank you for leaving a review for us on Tripadvisor saying that our food was great. We appreciate the comments. Unfortunately you are correct in saying our loos are not perfect. We do have an exposed pipe in both the men's and ladies...More

Very pleasant and efficient waitrons. Coffee was not good (flat whites and plunger). Breakfasts were OK but certainly not worthy of the price charged. Disappointed.

We visited Avontuur Estate Restaurant for belated Xmas celebrations. We were warmly greeted. Our server Avril was absolutely amazing. Spot on service. We had mushroom on gruyere toast and thai chicken livers for starters. Both were sublime. For main course we had beef fillet served...with mushroom sauce and veggies, oriental pork belly. It was amazing. The steak was soft like butter. My husband absolutely loved the pork belly. We cannot fault anything with the food or service. The bathrooms were super clean with sanitizer. Cannot wait to visit again soon.More
