    Our waitress Debra was absolutely amazing along with all the other staff. Greeted with a friendly face hosting us for the day, he guided us to our seats and if I hadn’t known our waitresses name I would’ve assumed we were being served by all the staff as they came over, chatted, and brought our food all together. I can’t stress enough how beautiful the ambience is, a light breeze and a beautiful view made our early Valentine’s Day something special. Now for the food: I will only be commenting on my food as I had a few bites of my girlfriends food however didn’t try everything together. Starters was Thai Chicken Livers with Brushcetta as I firmly believe chicken livers is a base standard to see how the kitchen works and all I have to say is damn… Best chicken livers I’ve ever had! Two slices of Bruschetta, one being the base for the livers and another on the side all lying in a bed of more-than-ample sauce. The balance of flavours were perfect and the chicken livers themselves had been cooked to perfection. No dryness or grittiness and I could tell that the livers had been cleaned properly. The peppadew beautifully cut the colour as well as the flavour. For mains I had the half a roast duckling and boy I didn’t realise just how much it would be. Beautifully presented, 2 big quarter legs of duckling on a bed of vegetables and what tasted like an orange jus. Flavour was well balanced but more to the sweeter side to accompany the sweeter meat and garnished with a caramelised orange and stick of rosemary. Mains get a complimentary bowl of chips to share with it which were also incredible. After powering through the massive mains, I ended it with a classical deep fried ice cream and Amarula butterscotch sauce. Everything was plated beautifully and truly felt like I had a 3-course artists meal. Thank you to Luq for hosting us, the amazing waitrons and staff that all helped us(Debra, Vicolene, Ben, and 3 others who’s name badges I couldn’t get a glimpse of), the incredible chefs in the kitchen, Mel, Zunia, and the rest of the kitchen team for making it such a special treat. I will definitely be a returning customer!
    Wonderful service excellent food
    Amazing experience once again! We have been coming to Avontuur since 2006 and never once disappointed. This time it was beef fillet for me - wonderful tender and juicy meat - and Norwegian salmon for my wife. Also a delightful dish. Their Thai sauce mussels are an absolute must as a starter. Desserts excellent as well. Relaxed and friendly setting. The waiters/waitresses know their stuff and get the job done without fuss. Definately top of our list.
    I have been supplying coffee to Avontuur since their opening day.  Mel and Zunia have taken their eatery on the R44 and grown it into a fine dining experience not to be missed!  Roast duck is tops, excellent service their name card, of course swilled down with great wine and not to forget to finish with a great cup of coffee.  Don't be square and miss this dining experience, monthly luncheon, party affair or just a quiet romantic swaray on the slopes of the Stellenbosch mountains.

    We both had the exquisite beef fillet. Both we're perfectly cooked as per our order. The mushroom and rosemary sauce is amazingly tasty but delicate enough to just compliment the fillet to perfection. The reserve Shiraz is one of the best our country has to offer. This restaurant competes strongly with those we've experienced in France and Italy. Well done team Avontuur, you make is proud to be South African!
