After all the amazing reviews we were really looking forward to eating there. The reservation process and welcome faultless, the setting outstanding, the food very good but the service from the waitron was the worst my wife and I have ever experienced anywhere in the world. Her attitude was shocking, my wife wasn't offered another glass of water, thankfully the... More

Odd review this one. I cannot fault the venue, superb food, perfect service or décor but....why did I feel like someone had died? It was deathly quiet, funereal almost. It was a Sunday evening so there were few other diners but why the hush? Someone needs to lighten the mood in here.

Zinzi is a well decorated restaurant in a beautiful setting with an excellent menu and wine list. We have never been disappointed eating lunch here as the choice of dishes is excellent as is the service. A wonderful informal spot which is not overly full even when the rest of Plett is bursting at the seams.
