A wonderful gem

We had an excellent lunch, starters were superb, the main Salmon was seared to perfection, service was great, and décor and grounds impeccable. Thank you - we will be back Matt

Stunning place but it's a shame where food is so average. Moroccan soup was not at all good, green curry was bad salmon was good - service was really below par - overall not recommended for a place that has so many great options.

The service was good and the food not bad the setting for sunset was quite quaint in all a good experience and the price point for us was not expensive. If you ask south africans its expensive for them.

Get there before it gets dark and ask for drinks on the small terrace to start your meal with a real wow. The menu contained great variety of food, served by attentive staff. Tasty and high quality food not too rich... More

9 of us had a dinner here on Friday 10th April, meals all disparate and all good, service great, and the setting superb. Nice menu and nice wine list. Next time we must definitely go whilst there is still sunlight, so we can soak up the views! If they can get it right outside of a main town, why can`t... More

Wow ! Zinzi !! Fabulous !!! Still talking about it !!!! So glad we chose dinner here during our couple of days in Plett.
