Visited last week without a reservation, place was really busy however the Manager suggested we do the Winetasting whilst waiting for a table, good call! Table became available halfway through the Winetasting so we took a break to eat! My Wife and I have been before and enjoyed the chat from our waiter Michael and asked for him again, Michael...

Visited in a very busy week before new year. No reservation was made and tried our luck as Root 44 was fully booked. We were met at the door by the manager and informed they were full however he said he would make a plan. We were soon seated. The food is absolutely delicious. Portions are perfect. Previously visited earlier... More

In more than seven years we have not once been disappointed with the roast duck, always succulent and crispy. The sunset towards Table mountain stunning and the horses and their foals always a delight to behold.

What an outstanding meal, I had the mussel starter which was undoubtedly... More

Family lunch of older members was well taken care off at this excellently managed estate restaurant. The menu is not excessive, but the dish to have is the Duck as a main. The puddings are spectacular with the almond cake and creme brûlée being really excellent. The views are fantastic, the service attentive and warm - all in all very... More

Their breakfast menu is very very limited. The food served was delicious. The cappuccino was average, the barrister could do a much better job.

We had the immense pleasure of enjoying an anniversary celebration at Avontuur Restaurant. As with previous experiences, the venue with its panoramic view of farmland and vineyards with the sea and view of Cape Point in the distance, as well as good service and delicious meal, we were not disappointed. This restaurant is run by two ladies who are professional... More
