A home away from home ...

Avontuur Restaurant is situated on the magnificent Avontuur Estate, set against the Helderberg Mountains on the Stellenbosch Wine Route between Stellenbosch and Somerset West.

The philosophy at Avontuur Estate Restaurant is simple: Everyone who walks through our doors is either already a friend, or soon will be.

Owners Melanie Paltoglou and Zunia Boucher-Myers know that every guest will have exceptional service, outstanding food and will regard the restaurant as a ‘home away from home’.  You will always find either one of them on duty.

The a la carte menu offers a mouthwatering selection. Indulge your senses with a hearty breakfast selection, or enjoy one of our ever-popular Champagne breakfasts.  The lunch menu, boasts specialties such as Duck with a piquant Van der Hum sauce, matured Fillet of Beef and Norwegian Salmon with a Dill and Cucumber diamond cream.  We cater for Vegan and Vegetarian diners.

Lighter options put emphasis on organic and local produce, where salads and quiches appeal to the health conscious. Delectable desserts including a gluten free bake of the day, will linger in the mind long after the meal, especially if savoured with the farm’s 10-year pot stilled brandy or the Above Royalty Liqueur Wine.

The emphasis is on unhurried meals in the company of good friends without compromising service.

The restaurant is decorated in an eclectic mix of old and new.  The sun-drenched terrace with its vine draped pagodas, has spectacular views of the paddocks, vines and Table Mountain and is popular in summer.

In winter a cozy fire and underfloor heating create a warm and inviting atmosphere. 


Functions, Weddings and Events

The estate restaurant is the perfect corporate and function venue.  Be it a wedding, birthday party, christening, teambuilding event, or a simple Sunday Lunch, we consider it an honour to be of service to you.

Join the dynamic “Avontuur Breakfast Club” (ABC) for networking and guest speakers, every second Wednesday of the month.

Both Melanie and Zunia regard value for money vitally important when dining out. Here you will find generous portions, food bursting with flavour and dishes that are visually a feast.  

They source local and where possible, organic fare, thereby offering regional favourites, while at the same time supporting local producers in the community

We never take our role for granted and consider ourselves to be blessed to be part of this magnificent estate.
