Celebrating 15 years at Avontuur!

12 November 2017

Who would have predicted on the 1st of November 2002 that Melanie and Zunia would be celebrating their fifteenth anniversary at Avontuur?

So many memories to share of friends made, weddings catered for, births celebrated, surprise engagements kept secret, loved ones lost and remembered, slip ups, make ups, falls, laughter, tears and love shared.  In fifteen years we have had children and watched them grow and blossom, deepened our relationships, celebrated a ninety fifth birthday and even had a marriage. Not to mention the countless celebrations and meals we have catered for our guests and been part of.

That works out to 5 475 days of cooking and roughly 10 950 breakfast and lunches made and that’s not including dinners. Phew!

The support of the Taberer family and G.M Pippa Mickleburgh have been instrumental in our longevity and success.  Without our loyal staff, especially Gladys Mgxam who has been with us since day one, our dedicated kitchen and back of house team, our fabulous front of house who are ever ready to serve with a smile, Georgios who goes the extra mile for each and every guest, we would just be two ladies with a dream.

Thank you all.

The biggest thank you goes to our loyal customers who have watched us start off from very humble beginnings to the bustling restaurant that we have today.

Thank you for your steadfast patronage, through summer and winter, year after year.

We love what we do, we love where we work and we are constantly reminded of just how blessed we are.

With Love
Melanie & Zunia
