We had two consecutive dinners here and both nights were impressed with service, ambience, food and value for money. We have been holidaying for 2 weeks and this has been our favourite restaurant. Excellent lamb, beef and desserts, lovely terrace for drinks and general all round goodness! Would recommend 100%.

Great place. I will definitely recommend it to anyone. The service is great and the food is better. I can highly recommend the slow roast pork belly as well as the parma ham salad. Monde is a superb server.

Driving down towards Wilderness, Zinzi is an ideal place to stop for lunch ( and I am sure for dinner too). Located just off the N2, the ambience & service alone would justify the drive from Knysna or wherever but the food was simply divine. And a selection of Wines in plenty. As we had to drive on, we could... More
