Owners' Philosophy

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

By embracing that theory, 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'.

To ensure that that philosophy saturates the restaurant, you will always find either one of us on duty as we firmly believe that a ship needs it captain at the helm at all times.

Also by ensuring that we keep our staff permanently, a great rapport between staff and guests has developed over time, with guests now requesting their preferred waiter to serve them when booking! In addition, by sourcing local and where possible, organic fare, we offer regional favourites and at the same time support local producers in the community.

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.

"We are part of people's history, it is an honour to be part of people's lives, be it a wedding, birthday party or a simple Sunday lunch. In the ten years that we have been at Avontuur we have had weddings, christenings, big and small celebrations of every kind, and we have made so many friends along the way. We never take our role for granted and consider ourselves to be blessed to be on this magnificent estate. To us every day is an Adventure!"
