We arrived for our booking 10minutes early and instead of being asked if we would like at drink in the outside area by the fire or in the bar were shown straight to our table. We were then asked if we would like a drink while looking at the menu. The cutlery was in a cloth bag not neatly laid... More

Another superb meal. Excellent service, well served food cooked to perfection, and priced sensibly. I only wish we could get this type of operation in the UK. Well done. It is a pity I will have to wait another year before sampling Zinzi's delights again!!!!!

Very good eatery close to our Tree House, good service, food very good on the whole. But my partner's lamb was chewy, not the only time in South Africa, she now eats "Venison". Nevertheless it didn't spoil our evening.

Located in the grounds of Hunters Lodge - half way between Plett and Knysna - Zinzi is set in a scenic, wooded location, overlooking a small lake. We were seated on the patio, having booked late, but the heaters made this comfortable, even on a somewhat fresh evening. The restaurant has been thoughtfully purpose built and it shows in the...

It is a brilliant restaurant. The menu is varied and high class. The wines are a bit pricy but excellent wines on the wine list. Good food, good service and a fantastic vibe. Whether you are there for lunch or dinner the view across the garden is superb.

Three weeks of excellent value meals in Cape Town, Plettenberg and Franschhoek gives a very good choice. This restaurant came out equal top with La Petite Ferme in Franschhoek. Excellent food and we had a lovely Pinot Noir followed by coffee in armchairs on the verandah by the open fire. Beautiful surroundings and tuneful frogs.
