When I walked in I was immediately thinking, posh. Immediately I thought they're compensating for something as the ambiance was a bit sterile. I was pleasantly surprised. The food was brilliant the service above and beyond and the ambiance was the sighs of content from the people at our table. Lovely. A winning recipe and a wonderful day.

We had a wonderful evening at Zinzi, the food was very good - both of us had game meat which was super tender. The service was very friendly and made our evening much enjoyable. We'd definitely recommend Zinzi and would love to come back again.

We had our best meal of our stay here at Zinzi resturant, the whole experience was "tasteful elegance"..a class act. I suggest you arrive early and enjoy a drink over looking the gardens, it is a lovely spot, and take your time choosing from the good and varied food and wine menus. The restaurant itself is stylish and well presented,... More

We are twice at Zinzi this trip with two lots of friends. When I reviewed Zinzi last year, I was pretty impressed, and said so. The décor is ‘modern African’ and very stylish and the surroundings are beautiful. In my view, Zinzi has improved in a year – food, service and general ambience. There is an indoor dining room, and... More

Fantastic location in the forest with a lovely lake. Décor very tasteful. Can't say the service was good - pretty average. Food was good - trying to be fine dining but doesn't quite cut it - but good all the same. Worth a visit.

Visiting Zinzi again after a five year gap since our last trip to this part of South Africa, we were concerned standards might have dropped. Not at all, from the minute we arrived to a friendly greeting from the Manager, to our departure a couple of hours later, we had a thoroughly enjoyable time. The setting for the restaurant is...

The restaurant is beautiful and wait staff is professional and so kind and courteous beyond words. The food itself is plated amazingly but is lacking in flavor in my opinion. When you see your food brought out you are expecting this phenomenal taste but no, on the contrary it is just ok tasting. There doesn't seem to be a lot... More
