Prior to our return to the UK we had a lovely evening meal at the restaurant. The homemade soup was especially nice and hot and tasty a bonus as the evening was cool. Both our main dishes were good and my desert fantastic. Will be back next year.

Sunny day so we ate on the terrace. Great welcome and service from our waiter Alan. We start an with prawns and smoked salmon, sounds simple beautifully served and delicious. I had catamaran, tender, tasty and delicious too. Then we all had the famous crispy duck, excellent. (What can I say) great lunch, lovely terrace, marvellous view.

We came here by chance, and were lucky to get a table (fortunately only 2 of us). Service was good, considering how busy it was, and the waitress pleasant and helpful without being intrusive. The food was full of flavour and attractively presented. We spent a lot of the time looking at what other people were having and wondering if... More

We have driven past Avontuur so many times, and finally decided to give it a try. What a great find. Superb food, excellent happy staff, beautiful horses in pristine paddocks in clear sight of our table, and a very well planned and decorated restaurant. We had a great time, over a leisurely long lunch, in fact spent 4 hours there.... More

We were regular patrons at Avontuur in view of the setting and the quality and presentation of the meal. However our latest visit with British friends was totally embarrassing. Michael and the waitresses who served us, have not been taught how to serve at the table. The menus, drinks and food were all passed across the table in front of... More

It's not my first visit to AVONTUUR Estate but it never ceases to amaze how the quality & the standard is unwavering. What a setting on a mild summers day overlooking the lush green paddocks with mares & foals in touching distance. The only issue is deciding what to order...? Wine is not a problem, as I just love the... More
